    Thanks for the info. I picked them up on eBay years ago before Vass really blew up on the internet. The guy I bought them from found them in a thrift store in Chicago for ~$10.

    You come to the right place. The writing inside the lining will tell you when it was made. The first 4 digits are the year, then month and day. looks like it's written 2008 or 2006. And made in February 02. Can't work out the day. The toe looks too chiselled to be an F last and the overall shoe looks narrow. So my guess is you picked up a pair of expensive Bespoke Vass for $10. Happy Days

    Wow. That looks very nice. Is it lightweight? And it looks from several of the photos as if the two main pockets are entirely separate. Is that the case? It doesn't fold down to open in a butterfly shape, does it? Assume not (or you would have shown a photo ;-) )but the design makes it look as if it might. Enjoy!

    Same here. Asked Mr. Kuti via email and he said they don't do it. Any trick?

    I have a couple of Vass Brief case.

    The leathers and suede used are usually sourced from the same shoe suppliers.

    They're well built with good quality zips.

    Tried a few pairs of Vass at Heritage in Shinsegae department store. Check it out if you're in town.

    Not true and mis-leading in many ways. I am an average width and the U last is fine.
