    Still wish they offered antiquing or at least colors that weren't totally flat.

    PSA for fellow Vass lovers near the NY area :

    If you want to see them in the flesh or try for size, we will be participating in the upcoming Official SF Trunk Show in NYC on Nov 16 & 17. Details here : http://www.styleforum.net/t/366451/...ok-neckties-jp-marcellino-franco-ercole/0_100

    We will also be taking Vass MTO orders there so you can be creative : pick last, sole, details, look at leather swatches, etc...

    Looking forward to seeing some of you guys there ! [​IMG]

    If you don't like "museum", then isn't it entirely possible to order as many Vass as you want and can afford without ever getting one?

    Why should the fact that Vass offers the option to those who want it be a concern?

    Quote:Agree completely. Choice is good. Vass "should" stick to making terrific shoes that satisfy a broad range of aesthetic preferences.

    thanks for the info gents. i really like the museum effect so i'm obviously glad they offer it. at any rate i doubt it's crowding out black captoes or anything like that, but ymmv as always

    Shoe painting is not antiquing, and most of the time, gaudy.

    Antiquing that this forum favors is a misnome; it's shoe painting in disguise and nothing related to creating an antiqued effect.

    The real antiquing effect being doing it with cream/wax?

    Shoe painting, antiquing, patina, burnishing etc etc, when has this become the Berluti thread?

    I was just wondering what the 'real antiquing' is.

    Thousands of wears and hundreds of coats of polish over many years
