    Here are the Vass 5-eyelet London derbies in cigar shell cordovan with natural soles. The other pairs are still at the office. On the first photo the flash went off, but it came out pretty well. All the others are in natural New York morning sunlight. Tough to get a feel for the exact color, but it's a fantastic shade.

    I love that pair. What last is it on? It appears to be one of their sleeker lasts.

    Thanks guys! Glad you all approve. They are pretty great if I do say so myself. I'm already looking forward to Monday when I'll be wearing them out and about!

    That it is! It will be pulling in a lot more this winter! Your prior Berkeley model was the inspiration for these actually. Glad you like them.

    Thanks Spoo!

    EDIT - I should also mention that I think these shoes will be extremely versatile. I can see wearing them with everything from jeans to a gray flannel suit.

    Slewy, they look stunning in daylight, especially with the shell ripples.

    I agree and thanks - let the ripples commence! Now you can see why I also wanted the chukka in a similar style!

    I am going to raise Slewy with some patinated saddle shell number. This pair came straight after some creaming and brushing.
