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.

    Thanks, in part, to all the porn here, just pulled the trigger on my first Vass. Hope to report back next month.

    Very nice, but the one that really does it for me is the buffalo-grain wing-tip. Not the color, of course...

    really?

    The tan wing-tip Oxford is also very well-proportioned.

    it's a nice pair of shoes. though, it leaves me pretty cold, due to it's lack of authenticity, imo. in my personal pow another hybrid attempt to "copy" british or eyetalian styles.

    Well, yes-- it is sort of British/Italian. But nicely done.

    No idea on prices.

    the "norweger" is quite nice. imo, it beats the Dover by a far mile.
    I don't like the way the split toe is sewed, if i may say.

    Browse this thread. There were indications of price in Budapest. IIRC, it was 95,000 - 125,000 HUF.
    If you pay cash, they'll give you a 10% discount.

    Sheesh. Do I have to do everything myself? :^)

    Here are some photos in the natural light of the double-monks I put up on B&S before the tongue pad worked its magic. The Saddle Shell is AWESOME!

    Since the last shots were on a crappy camera phone here you can really see the color.

    These will likely be my last pair on the U-last as, like others on the forum, I've definitely been gravitating more towards round toes.

    Does the F-last have a lower instep than the U-last? Width of the shoe and length is optimal, but I hate having to use a tongue pad on my U-lasts.

    I would say it has a SLIGHTLY lower one. Still higher than most english shoes. IMO Those cordovan monks are sexy. F last would be better though, methinks

    I'd say that's a fair assessment regarding the instep.

    Glad you like the monks! I vacillated between doing the F and U and decided on the U primarily because of the higher instep which I need for my left foot. The tongue pads were more for my feet sliding forward just to the side of where my instep is higher.

    these look great - I'm def going F and P2 too although nothing beats the sharpness of the U
