    I went a 0.5 smaller than I initially thought when I first bought Vass. I was able to use a full leather ortho insole from AE in a 40 (F last) so I think 39.5 will be my plan for the F in the future. I picked #75 (stock model) since I wanted a tan wingtip oxford. I had a pair of C&J Cliffords in the past but the heel slip was just too much. Could have just gone with EG but I thought this would be a nice opportunity to try Vass again. Second is #89 boot since I'm in MI now and bal boots every day of the week might be too much with the Wolverine/Red Wing pack. :happy:

    ^^^^ Excellent choice. That style in scotch grain with the double sole and goyser welt is stuffed full of win. I want those shoes big time. Got to ease up on shoe purchases for a little bit, though.

    This may have been posted somewhere, but what is the status of the museum/misty/ultra calf? I know they were short on supply of museum but might be getting in new stock of misty or ultra?

    Thanks! I have been attempting to replace a very old pair of pre-SF John Varvatos Norvegese welted shoes that were just the perfect casual shoe. I got rid of them after two resoles and the welting started coming undone. I should have had them completely recrafted but did not know enough at the time. These things look like tanks and should be able to take a beating. My only other scotch grain shoes is a pair of EG what are a bit too nice for bar hopping and the like.

    May I ask which colour that is? Still new to Vass and trying to figure out which leather I want to use for my first pair. Thanks!

    Oh yeah - they look (and no doubt are) pretty darned solid.

    These look so nice. Vass scotch grain is beautiful IMO. Let us know what you think.
