    Some of my favourites, all on F last.

    L to R: Mid brown suede austerity brogue, 6319 cognac calf Melton (a name I gave to a bespoke model I based this shoe on), black calf Ladbroke (based on an EG model).

    I'm lovin' the black Ladbroke! Clean, simple, nice. The "Melton" is a close second...

    Dear styleforum

    After reading here for more than a year now, I thought it was high time to contribute something, too.

    On a recent trip Vass in Budapest I found this lovely pair of the Old English II model on the U last and in a very striking and rather unusual colour combination:

    Please excuse me for not posting any sole pictures. The thought I might post some pictures came after yielding to the temptation of wearing [​IMG]

    Cheers

    That pretty much sums up Style Forum right there.

    Glad you approve. I'll try to get shots up soon.

    Yes, it'll be quite interesting to see how they develop over the coming decades [​IMG] At first I had some concerns how easy the two-tone scotchgrain would be to polish - turn's out it's no problem at all.

    The Old English 2 coupled with the U last is by far the most distinct shoe Vass makes...and I liked the pumpkin orange color (much less the pebble grain version too)
