    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.

    Vass used to call all brown shell "antic Cognac". The shade could be all over the place.

    Somewhere in between. But that's a wide spectrum. These were initially lighter but have darkened up (after 15 wears). Look like cigar to me


    Thank you!


    I think the larger sizes have that more pronounced look. This is a 45.5f

    Gentlemen,

    I hope you don't mind me posting a question here; but has Vass recouped their shell cordovan supplies?

    Antique Cognac and Whiskey shades in particular?

    I did not want to bother the vendors with this question.

    Thanks.

    This question has probably been asked 500x at this point, but how does P2 compare to F last? Particularly interested in ball/toebox width and instep (need wide for the former, low for the latter).

    Then you have it. The P2 has a much wider ball area, and a lower instep than the F. It is also more curved than the two Italians. It is a completely different last.

    Did we meet at the shop? I have been there on Saturday at around 11 am and was talking to a customer, who had just ordered a pair of Austerity Brogues.
    As did I. Dark gold museum calf, 4-Eye Oxford, F-Last. It's going to be epic :)

    I spent each of my last two Saturday afternoons buying my first two pairs of Vass from @jokb . I really was not in the market at all for upscale shoes but I couldn't turn down a great deal, especially here in Toronto where great shoes are either crazy expensive or very hard to come by or both. Gonna try to not buy a pair of Vass this week. :) Does this club have a secret handshake that someone can PM me?
