    I'm just not a monk strap kind of guy, God forbid a double monk, but these shoes are freaking cool looking. I wonder if they're as nice to wear as they are to look at?

    Edit: I wonder how they would look in a lighter museum calf.

    Just got word that my neighbour signed for my Vass that arrived today. I'm seriously considering skipping work despite a visit from the company-wide CEO.

    I don't want neighborly fingers all over my new treasure.

    Jokes aside Ill be posting a wide array of photos as soon as I get home.

    Is cognac the lightest calf color Vass carries (in the tan-brown spectrum)? Looking for something like Edward Green's Edwardian or lighter for this summer.

    What treatment would you think for polish/cream? The Saphir brown might blot it all out, but a little shine and refreshment would be a decent thing now and then.

    I uploaded the price list some time ago, price for a RTW calf boot is €520 + €30 for shoe trees, however the price list also says "Calf leather half boots and boots have special prices in MTO category"

    Since any alteriation from their online catalogue is consided a MTO, the price will be in the €600 range for just the boots of you plan on ordering a boot that isn't in their online catalogue. For your information, that's here: http://www.vass-cipo.hu/Eng/Modellek_00_UjModellek.html

    Gentlemen, is there a consensus on this thread as to a preference between a Vass calfskin or a shell cordovan dress shoe?
