1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Also Vass offers last adjustments at a €100 upcharge but then including the three piece tree in the price. They call this service "be-spoke".

    But don't they require you to go there in person?

    I believe yes. A bit of a hassle if you live in US or Canada of course

    Is that 100 on top of the MTO price i.e. 620?

    SC = 9.5

    Vass = 44 on U,K and F last.
    I can get away with F last on 43.5 in a open lace Derby shoe.

    I mostly use a neutral wax, but I did pick up a jar of Saphir Mahogany that seems a pretty close colour match.

    These? Here are some fresh pics. Color is still a bit lighter than I would like it to be, but I will let them be as they are for now (and continue to polish them with dark cream after every use). The problem is, when you have so many Vass shoes on rotation, the time per pair is limited :) hence the darkening process will take longer. I am sure after some years of wear they will have a very nice patina.

    Are these boxcalf or shell cordovan? To my novice eyes, these look like shell cordovan. Anyways, those look awesome!
