    Mike,

    I LOVE that boot. I would be up for light shell like pictured or antique cognac. That or the NST boot I am all over. I would love a York or Dainite but would go leather if that us the consensus.

    I like this a lot, are they the same leather as the Austerity Brogue you have in stock now? My current most expensive shoes are Alden cordovan LWBs, but this is mighty tempting...

    Unfortunately the only rubber sole Vass currently works with is that Vibram on the scotchgrain Alt Wien Mike posted.

    I missed out on the RLPL Narvell frenzy from a few years ago, so I'd be interested in a single-strap monk in dark brown suede, with or without medallion.

    At your house, when you're not there
    I heard a rumor Epaulet has already arranged to carry an OTR Vass monk.

    Honestly I'd like to see an austerity in a less casual material. I feel like the austerity pattern is a way to bring a brogue more upscale, and the current offering goes in the wrong direction IMO.

    That said, I'm sure I'll still buy the current model on offer :)

    congrat, but is this going to be more country/rugged oriented?

    True, but you have to supply the dainite sole for them and they are still figuring out how to work with it...here is pic from the Vass thread...I would wait on ordering this until they are totally comfortable working with it...

    I mentioned this earlier but they are expecting samples from the new source (Haas...most likely the supplier JL switched to about a year ago for the museum calf) in mid September. I have three make-ups (2 dark brown, 1 navy) on order and Rezso did not think that my delivery dates for the end of September and mid/end October should move all that much.

    I've been wanting to get a Vass boot - that austerity blucher posted above would certainly fit the bill.

    They had the Dainite soles in stock this past spring. I don't think we'd have to supply them. Don't know how comfortable they are working with the sole yet. Toe stitching on mine looks
    better than the photos you quoted though.
