    A beautiful quote from the past. I was in the same shoes until Luk Cha Vass thread.
    Is LC still around?

    I still use his shoes as a reference point. Beauty in simplicity.

    Ditto, must give him and Roberto Ugolini credit for initiating this Vass phenomenon.

    I'll go to JL and ask if they can do similar stuff that Vass churns out.

    I sometimes have to empty my Swiss account when They quote me their MTO prices :-(

    I liked J Ingevaldsson's idea of showing the Museum Gold in the wild: [​IMG]

    stmaier, did you ever get Vass to duplicate the vertical stitching in the toe of those Edward Green shoes you sent them pictures of? The Osloer looks nice but would prefer not to have the protruded stitch you mentioned.

    Museum calf do look fantastic in an understated modell like this. Very, very nice! Once the alternative supplier is up, I'll copy this!
