    OK, I have some questions.


    1. In this picture, the black shoe (closest to the viewer) has a gorgeous shape. Is this just because of camera angle, or is the "head" a little longer? It has a sinewy elegance to it.

    2. In this picture, what's the model -- is it Old London in brown with some burnishing? Love the detail!

    Thanks!

    Pkuila: Answer to question 1...all 3 pictured shoes are on the U last. The shoe's angle is what makes it look different...that is all Answer to question 2. Its the Vass Old English 2. I see no burnishing on this leather I own a variation of of the Old English 2 and feel it is Vass' most distinct design. http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...2&postcount=32

    I always ask you to post pics of your collection, then when a glimpse is revealed, I cant handle it. Amazing.

    Spoo - do you have any Vass yet? If not you need to do yourself a favor and grab some. Exciting shoes to say the least.

    No... not yet - The ones here are usually not my size or I have been too late, or the ones on eBay are too boring or too much. Im anxiously waiting for my size to hit the sweet spot.

    Why not just contact kolecho and get on his list to do a possible order next time he puts one together? That way you can be assured you get what the design, color and last you want. Plus he's a pleasure to deal with. Vass rules.
