Agree - but Vass has something similar in the Italian model.
What do you mean? Isn't this the Roma?
Personally, I find it an eyesore. But that's just one man's opinion.
^+1 those are tooo much, I don't care what color, they lack simplicity
I stayed in the same family by getting antique Cognac calf. No complaints whatever.
Another photo of the bordeaux Alt Wien in the P2 last, one of my favorites. It's one of the classic Vass models but It's not frequent in the forum.
I ordered this Alt Wien a cuople of years ago after finding the picture of this fine pair online:
^^^ That's fantastic. Classic Vass indeed.
Amazing. And I love that medallion.
Sorry my bad. Somehow thought that the whole Ugolini thing was gone forever. Obviously not. Didn't know the "U" from the U-last stands for Ugolini.
but not the same last
How does the double sole work with that in your opinion? I know their office tends to view the P2 as a single-sole sort of last. Whether that's based on form or function I couldn't say.
The P2 last is one of the few available in my size; I noticed that they had a mix of single- and double-soled ones on it in RTW when I was there if I recall correctly. Personally, I much prefer a double sole rather than a single on the P2, but the proportions are a bit different in size 47. These are en route (stuck in customs — lame) from a resoling, and I requested a double this time.
How much is a resole by Vass?
IIRC, it's not a lot. More like what Alden charges than Cleverley.
I just got a pair delivered like this-- P2 Budapester with antique Cognac shell. (Single sole.) I'm very happy with them, although after some thought and worry I left them behind and took the P3 Alt Wieners that came in the same order on my trip to China. The little bit of extra toe room is comforting after the long flight, the salty food, and a few hours of walking around today.
No one can help with choosing cream/polish for Vass oxblood?
