    OEII? Or just OE? Beautiful either way. And I like it on the P2. I'm rethinking F for mine now.

    Looks aside, how's the leather? Do they feel supple?

    Good question, how does it feel in comparison to the regular box calf? Worth the up charge?

    Sorry, my bad. OE it is





    They feel as good if not better than my box calf ones and the leather feels much better than my Meermin museums (Ilcea)

    Oh, Jubei. I got these for less than my U lasts which I got direct from Vass so more of a down charge really! :D

    Pepe from Meermin also said the same thing - that Haas' museum is of better quality vs. Ilcea's. I will get my museum calf from Meermin next week (also sourcing from Haas). I will compare it to my Ilcea museum from Vaas and let everyone know my observation

    Of course Meermin did apparently use ball sac leather on my pair so it wasn't a stretch to improve on it

    Congrats, Oz, and nothing stretches like ball sac...

    Did you say TS is cheaper than Vass direct? Is that just because you're dodging the 27% Hungarian VAT when normally you can't as you're inside the EEA? I think I need to talk to TS either way!

    Doesn't it get too tight to wear on a cold day?

    Does anyone know if Vass offers shearling or fur lining as an option? Would be great for a boot in winter.
