    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.

    Sorry guys, I too wish the sample shoes/boots with the mystery leather were ready now.
    It's not a bleeding obvious exotic like shagreen (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I dare say a much better long term ownership proposition.

    What are the chances of Vass doing a make up similar to EG Dover?

    JayH, I don't think Vass does an exact EG dover replica. As far as I know their split toes have a more 'vertical' apron instead of the sloping artifact found on the Dover.

    Can't see why not. Added.

    Unfortunately, Vass can't do the split toe stitching the way Edward Green and Gaziano & Girling can.

    I have a pair of the U last austerity brogues in museum calf but another color like plum or oxblood would definitely be of interest.

    I'm trying to compare more closely the U and the F lasts. Would be very grateful to those who have the U last if they posted up some pics.

    Thanks!

    How will you folks narrow down your sizes in these varied lasts and shoes? I have been VASS customer for many years and visited their store on many occasions and each time I order it is a craps-shoot. Not to rain on this thread , but to alert you to the fact that VASS is inconsistent in sizing. Everything is larger and bigger at VASS nowadays: heels r taller, soles r wider, sizes roomier.

    Not great lighting but here is an F last austerity brogue (antique cognac) and U last austerity brogue (museum brown).

    The austerity brogues do look great in the U and F lasts.



    I have 2 pairs of Vass from some 8 years back and I would say the fit is quite consistent with my recently built Vass shoes in the same size and last. I can only speak from my own experience though.

    From my dealings with Vass, they do stand solidly by their wares. If things do go awry, Vass is very responsive and obliging in resolving any issues.

    The VASS Porn Thread is also a great resource for pics if you need inspiration or an idea on what a model will look like in a certain last...
