    Does anyone know what options they have for edge dressing? I've only seen black, and natural (no dressing whatsoever). Does anyone know if they have a mid level//brown

    Yes, they do. From their very own website:

    I personally think the burnishing spot on. It's well balanced and proportional to the size of the shoes. I find the EG burnishing can be rushed at times.

    Did Vass do this themselves?

    Nope. I did it myself. [​IMG]
    Unfortunately, Vass doesn't offer antiquing at all anymore.

    According to Notch, yes. You could get it upon request apparently.

    Browsed through the Vass website and liked style #89 which is a derby boot on the New Peter. I am not familiar with this last and it looks like a nice casual last (especially compared to the F & U). For those that have the New Peter, do you find the fit tigher, like smart shoes, or more 'relaxed' like country lasts. Thanks for any input!

    Looking for a last closer to C&J 325 and less Tricker's 4497. Thanks for any input!

    Now, I hope you tried on every last in your size so you don't have to post a question about the fit when you get back home. :p

    Have to agree. The service is excellent, and even if you can't go to the store yourself, Mr. Kuti is very patient and helpful in providing you with a shoe via e-mail. I'm a huge fan.

    I was thinking of getting an austerity brogue, does anyone think it would look weird on the p2 because it's a more chunky last than the F or the U?

    Attention all you museum calf fans out there! Emailed Rezsö the following on Tuesday:

    "Also, have you managed to replace the two "Museum calf" leathers from Ilcea with another supplier yet?"

    Rezsö's answer yesterday:

    "Dear Andreas!

    Thank you for your email!
    Yes, I am currently working on it. It seems that we will have the leather again later this year!
    I can contact you next week already with the results!

    Kind regards,

    Rezső Kuti
    Sales Manager"
