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.

    Those tankers are just BEAUTIFUL! - I'm not too familiar with Vass and looking for a new boot: what style are they, if I wanted to reference them? Are those Cordovan?

    As others have said, the tankers are amazing!

    Has anyone seen the above tanker on a flat welt?

    Yes, both the Osloer. Quite a few different versions posted over the years if you search the thread (or Google images). On the Vass site it is shown with a single leather sole (Ascot had a good IG photo as well). stmaier has a double leather version that got me hooked on it.

    Anyone seen a Vass Osloer in suede? Think it sounds good but can't find any pictures of one.

    Both are P2. An F version was posted not too long ago as well.

    It's so strange how personal preferences are getting changed. Not long ago I looked only on sleek shoes a la G&G, AS, many Italians. And now, starting with Vass, I starting to find round lasts very pretty))) I have my first Vass pair in F. And it is great in looks and in fit. And now, unexpectedly for me, I want to buy a pair of Alt Wien. [​IMG] So funny and strange for me)

    Could someone share opinion on fitting of 3636 last in comparison to F? I have read that they are similar. But I wanted some more precision. I have a high instep and a little bit wide ball area. F last accommodated them perfectly. Does 3636 the same in instep and forefoot (with more toe space)?

    And, question of style and practice. ...I usually avoided cognac calf as too light for being versatile (maybe wrong)....But now I like Alt wien in 3636 last especially in cognac calf. Gents, what do you wear with cognac calf? Grey? Navy also? I talk for suits mostly.

    Will be interested to see the answers to this, I myself have moved from U to F to P2 (my current ideal fit) during my Vass journey and now am waiting my first pair of 3636. This has surprised me too. I was first drawn to the Vass by the U lasts and would never have thought a couple of years ago that I would find myself impatiently waiting for my Alt Wiens on the 3636 to arrive and owning nothing on U. Funny old world.
