    What colors of museum calf do they have? I've seen the normal brown, but there is also a reddish one I've sometimes seen referred to as gold? Are there others?

    I snapped a few as I got home - the early evening light wasn't the best, but I think these shoes look good in any light sufficient to actually see them - will resize, upload and post first thing tomorrow.

    Wow Roger, lovely pair!

    I wonder, when does Vass execute the lacing area with an additional piece of leather and when with a tack?

    Absolutely amazing shoes, congrats! Waiting for a pair of U-last austerity brogues in the gold museum myself. Wanted the dark brown from the beginning, but they didn't have that left, so went with new gold instead. Now I'm actually glad of that, will be sweet.
