    Sorry if this has been discussed before. I tried reading around 50 pages back but no result. Also no luck from google.

    Rear seam seems default from all vass shoes. But I also see some vass on B&S without rear seam. May I know why people specify not to have it? Is it for better durability as the seam at that position is easy to break? Thanks.

    seamless heel is harder to make, real advantage besides visual(or knowing the whole thing is made from one piece makes you feel better)? I don't know maybe some other can answer

    With Vass, it mostly depends on which model you choose. Some of them they don't use a rear seam, some they do. The main reason is that the leather piece at the back can't to be too big. For example on their London model and Budapest-oxford there's no rear seam, but on the double monk model it is, cause otherwise he leatherpiece at the back would have to be really big.

    I agree with above. My DMs have the rear seam and oxfords dons't, but I haven't asked for any option.

    Thanks all for the advice. Was thinking to ask for seamless if it is for durability. Now I will let Mr. Kuti to decided based on model.

    Need a bit more advice. If you were me, and if you already have a black OE II, will you go for OE II again for the next dark cognac pair? I need the dark cognac pair to serve me wih grey and navy suit and sometimes go a bit more casual without jacket. Although I lean SLIGHTLY to the OE II because of the nice details o the cap toe, I am also thinking OE I for more diversity in upper design. What do you think? Make sense to stick with the design of first love wih different color? Or diversity is better? Will OE I too plain for a slightly more causal pair? Pls pls give me some personal and subject advice for brainstorm. Thanks.

    (Btw, will go for double to single sole for a less formal look and to experiment a bit on different feature)

    Got my suede F-last austerity brogues inspired by rikod (post 6465), but mine are on the dainite.

    I've sent Rezso my measurement to modify the last for my high instep, and the fit is really perfect.
