    I am considering a pair of VASS double monks on the U last, double sole to single. I have seen that it has been suggested to ask for the sole to be cut closer (trimmed). Could anyone please post pictures so I can see the difference between a Vass with and without such trimming.

    Thanks.

    After more than two weeks stuck in US customs, my design by committee pair came in today from kolecho (who was great to deal with from start to finish).

    F-last, dark brown calf, Italian Oxfords, double to single, yada yada.

    Sorry for the picture quality...I was gonna break out the SLR for the first time for a SF post but I just moved and it's...somewhere. The black spots on the toe cap are artifacts.


    Want. Badly.

    Bump & a rare pair in my collection that no one hates..

    I have ordered a pair with and a pair without such a request. Frankly, I don't think it makes a big difference. I am in the middle of finals, but if no pics go up by the end, I will post some for you.

    Fantastic shoes.
    One thing I would do differently; I'd order the same perforation on the heel counter.

    heel counter and a medalion, i might be inclined to prefer a punch cap toe insted of the wing, thus more like the berluti one

    Lovely shoes Pied. Is that 6319 cognac? Yours have a buttery richness many others in 'cognac' do not. Love the colour contrast of upper and sole too.

    From what i can see in the catalog, the "6319 cognac" boxcalf is different, more brownish. This one is just named "cognac".
