Comfy, though. That's one last where the Norweger pattern makes a huge difference.
Need a go to vass for odd jacket and pants, currently filled by mid-brown suede PTB, which would you choose:
Bordeaux shell longwing f or p2
Antique shell NST p2
Bordeaux shell NST p2
Antique shell PTB p2 + Vibram
Something I'm missing?
came across a couple awesome makeups
thanks for the compliments guys. ill try to get a better shot tomorrow
For calf leather. what color - Oxblood, dark brown or dark cognac works best for boots?
Quote:Given the shape and design of the Norgewer it looks pretty good in all of the Vass last...even the traditional Budapest Last. Will give the Norweger design in either Peter or F last next...
Quote:For city slickers like yourself...I'll go for the K last Had a pair of Shell in Bordeaux with Goyser made in Vass High boots and received some decent stare at the Royal Exchange...
Quote:They all good chices...me, I'll go for the dark cognac...you can play around with the sappir cream with this colour..
Lobbs, I had the norweger in the Peter last and I think that's the only Vass pair I really hated, knowing you like sleek I would strongly suggest going for the F last on that one. Look at Namor picture.
Quote:I was inspired by NAMOR pics. OK new MTO order on its way, I'll go for this design: 1) F Last 2) Norweger High boots 3) Dark Cognac and Brown Scotch grain on upper ankle section 4) Natural goyser stitching 5) Dainite Sole 6) 4 metal hooks Prepping for winter wear...
sounds similar to my next MTO...waiting on my P2 Osloer in Antique Cognac Cordovan to confirm I got my size right...next MTO I am thinking Norweger High Boot, P2, Caramel/Gold Radica Calf, 4 hooks...
Quote:^NICE....Whats the Caramel/Gold Radica Calf, is this the new calf from IIcea??
^yup...also known as the Ilcea Museum calf...there are some pics a few pages back...it is the lighter of the two colors shown...
Quote:Ok, Think I'll keep away from that stuff as half my Lobb collection made up of the Musuem calf......typical high-end Italian leather quality...looks very very nice but a pain in the backside to maintain....I find the Vass and Saint Crispin leather better to play around with.
"Whiskey" vass norweger
