Well that's your point, and you're welcome to it.
Now ask him what he thinks of Grand Seiko.
I like your shoes, Roger, as you know. My only negative on the "goyser" stitching in general is that I'd like smaller stitches; looks neater. I guess Norwegian might be the way to go. But in general, I think if you're the kind of guy who wears tricolour spectators, you are equally able to say "and look at my goyser stitching and weep you motherfuckers, AND my Snowflake too...bite me!" Which I rather like about you. Along with your excellent taste in suits.
Thank you Mimo my man - you are most kind.
What's the turnaround time for an MTO through Ascot?
Vass labelled those as "Antique Cognac" shell.
The third pair are also labelled as "Antique Cognac" but quite a bit darker in comparison.
mimo... very well put
Rules are meant to be broken. Take it from a man who wrote a book on handmade shoes.
From my experience only another gentleman who has an affinity for handmade shoes will ever notice the double or tri-color stitching on your oxfords or derby's as it would reflect a personal preference for quality footwear and a general sense of style and comfort.
Got my shipping confirmation, will reiceve both pairs Friday!
Congrats, VVV, look forward to the pics.
Looking for some direction. I'm trying to decide on my first pair of Vass shoes. I'm stuck between the double monk and the norweger, probably in cordovan leather. Any reason I should choose one over the other?
both are fine choices. you may want to go with the double monk if you want cordovan. Mr. Vass prefers to use calf for the Norweger. He felt the seams were a bit too thick using cordovan. I know they have done Norweger's in cordovan in the past but that was the response I got when I inquired about a Norweger boot in cordovan.
Base on your style, your work, your wardrobe and the shape of your foot, I say Norwerger in saddle shell, P2 last.
Double monks will work as well.
Very different shoes - none better than the other, just different. Pick the one that would be the best fit for your existing shoe wardrobe.
In related Vass news, but at the pre-porn stage, my Old English II Ilcea Museum Calf arrived today. These are almost too beautiful to wear. Pics to come.
