1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    I'm not attaching him at all but thanks for your useless input. If you want a VASS style Galway and can't get it then another reasonable option would be to buy a Galway. They will be roughly the same price.

    Suspending shell orders? Guess it wasn't a joke that NAMOR's orders used the remaining supply!

    I guess my pair of oxfords were large enough to have chewed through the shell inventory. Sorry.

    So @rydenfan expressed an opinion, to be honest when seeing this in the Meermin thread those were my same thoughts.

    Gents,

    Can we all agree that tone and humor are easily lost over text and just carry on with nerding out over shoes?

    I did not take offense to his comment, for the record.

    I have a EG Galway MTO in mind, but I'll save it for later. The price differential between EG MTO and Vass MTO was enormous, FYI, at least for me.

    He might not want to pay $2k+ and wait 9 months for a goodyear-welted shoe, when he can wait 2-3 months and pay $1k for a handwelted-shoe.

    Apparently expressing an opinion in a different thread automatically means I'm saying the exact same thing here despite them being different threads and me saying different things. Some people have more time than smarts

    They are for me in calf.

    Can we get back to discussing VASS or not?

    Or he might. Just what is it that you find objectionable about suggesting an alternative purchase, exactly?

    Just stating the reason why he might prefer Vass rather than to buy EG, which are likely to be cost, time, and build.

    Sorry to the EG brigade, you guys can put down your pitchforks. Don't want to start a riot like I did in the NMWA thread lmao

    If you're referring to mine, idk. Just told Rezso so likely 7-8 weeks once he gets back to me.

    I really like the DOak/brown grain combo, but I can't justify paying $1-1.3K for GYW calf boots. Especially when I can get a Vass with some custom tweaks for like $700.

    - Brown scotchgrain shaft / antic cognac calf front
    - 360 goyser stitch
    - Vibram lug sole
    - F-last

    Here's some Vass content for you.

    After a few wearings these boots are now completely broken in and I can confirm that they are freaking Vass-tastic. My conversion to P2 love is bordering on religion right now. Just a fabulous last.
