    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.

    Does anyone have a picture of the River medallion from model #111 (http://www.vass-cipo.hu/Eng/Modellek_08_Olasz/Modell_08_111_Nagy.html) paired with a straight punched cap and/or wingtip? I've seen it paired with the V-cap, but don't like them together.

    Help would be appreciated. Bird view would be preferred, but anything would do. Thanks.

    What happened to all the cricket talk? This thread is now ruined.

    However, I have a more pertinent question: does anyone buy the three piece trees as a matter of course for their direct orders, and how long does it normally take to get them? OK, technically two questions. But in mitigation, neither of them was about Sri Lankan bowlers.

    I have a pair of 3-piece trees from another maker. While they may be better than the hinged kind for the shoes, they're a real pain in the butt to use. The center part always risks falling out, and then you have 6 pieces to chase around you've dressed. Some makers put a string on them to hold them together, but the whole thing adds complexity to times of the day when I don't want to think real hard.

    Question is, even though I have a Dover on order why is that Norweger tugging at me?

    I normally prefer the Goyser stitch on boots, but I think it works really well there

    These are inbound: blue museum calf Norwegian New Peter boots with natural welt and white stitching atop Dainite soles. They are my very first blue shoes and I guess green will be the next high in this never-ending shoephilia.

    Can the Vass experts tell me the difference between the Peter last and New Peter last? If one fits well, with the other fit well?

    Nice boots. Can you ask Rezso which leather was used for the brown galosh oxfords in the picture? Thanks!

    I believe that Peter is narrower than New Peter. I can fit most P2 shoes, but couldn't even think about the Peter when I visited the shop in Budapest.

    Tell me more (read: everything) about the brown shoe in the top right. Last (U/F)? Model# (126)? Color (Museum Brown or is that antiquing your work)? Close up pic? They look spectacular.
