    Comfy, though. That's one last where the Norweger pattern makes a huge difference.

    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...

    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.

    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: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.
