might be keen too. How much does Vass usually run for?
Vass retails from about US$800 upwards for an oxford/derby with the American online retailers (Aus delivery not included) and about US$700+ to anywhere above US$1000+ depending on style and leather choice with the proxy sellers.
The timing is not great for me (on vacation so savings low) and the price is a bit higher than I predicted (think I last checked when the dollar was stronger). I'll bow out for now and monitor the thread, if things change I'll let you guys know.
Have confirmed late Jan 2014 deadline for orders and payment. Delivery to be around April 2014.
First post edited.
Just received an answer to the question of try-on/trial pairs for sizing.
Because of the concern of them having to pay duties on the return of the trial, try-on pairs, it isn't something Vass will consider right now.
After some deliberation, the Vass group buy is now open to members in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand.
Interested members in the other neighbouring countries, please PM me. Cheers.
Any update on the pricing for the shoes for this group buy?
I haven't been able to get definitive discounted pricing from Vass yet. We'll have to have a minimum of 10 orders before we get any discounted group pricing.
We have a total of 7 orders so far (including 1 order external to Styleforum).
So 3 more to go at the very least though ideally we'll want to have a bit more since there will probably be some who will not proceed with the actual order.
Beautiful. I'll take some of these whatever they are.
^^^ Those look vaguely familiar....
The colour is "Red Cognac" in the Vass lexicon. Bordeaux and Oxblood are progressively darker. I'll be interested to see what you guys come up with.
I remember the price of Vass direct is approx EUR350-420 for the Italian models (U/F lasts).
I would be keen on similar pricing and even a discount stack for group buy.
When was your order at those prices? It's tantalising.
I did a Vass direct order for some suede captoes boots (F-last) about 8 weeks ago which came up to 540 euros delivered to Aus.
Shoes will probably be cheaper.
Around the high 3xx euro was what I expected as well. I think they were about $450au last time I checked but that was when the Aussie dollar was a fair bit stronger. Maybe wishful thinking but I hoped the group buy discount would balance out the cost of shipping.
Well, granted it was just the base cost not an all in with trees/shipping.
count me in for a pair.
Style: (i'm not sure if its called a Weymouth)
Colour: In their available ilcea leathers
i) Double leather sole (would you advise if it looks better for it to be tapered to 1 mid-sole)
ii) Flush Metal Toe Tip
iii) Finish: Italian
details to be finalized.
