    Vass do produce a 5 eyelet derby, I believe it's called the 'London' model.

    Should be easily produced, but Vass don't do a split welt like on that Alden model, only flat welts or norwegian welts, so you'll have to pick between.

    Last wise the F last should suit you. It's Japanese more than Italian, but it's fairly sleek.

    So is the process in this buy that we are specifying individual MTOs orders that we'd like to place or that we're looking to settle on one or a few models that will make up a group order?

    If we can get museum calf colors I would switch from chukka to either Austerity Brogue on F last or if Vass has a shoe similar to John Lobb Garnier plain toe on F last.

    Hi,

    Thanks for organizing, the pics of the previous group order look amazing. Please count me in:

    Italian V-cap oxford / U-last / Size 44 / Navy

    I might be in for a bal boot, depending on pricing.

    I'm interested in details on the mystery leather as well.

    Thanks!

    Model 111, U last

    Model 119, U last

    Does Vass allow different size shoes for the same pair of shoes in a GMTO? My left foot is about a half size larger than my right. Thanks.

    I'm expecting a pair of those, size 41.5 narrow F-last in antique cognac cordovan any day now. Notch, are you reading this?;)

    I just found this:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/130044/the-ultimate-vass-porn-thread/7695#post_6476183

    beautiful!

    couple of questions:
    Are the quarters supposed to come together on a blucher? I'm not too fussed, but I think the Alden quarters look a bit better

    what does norwegian welt look like? Do you have any Vass examples?

    Thank you to those who have detailed their orders and those who are joining the group buy. Have added the new orders and details.




    It would be ideal if you can choose one of the styles/models that most are already interested in. eg. chukka boots, balmoral high boots, austerity brogues etc.






    Cheers, I have been in touch with Vass about the sample boots/shoes in the mystery leather. Estimated completion is possibly around the end of the month.







    With the MTO you will probably be able to get a different sized shoe for your left foot versus right. I will ask to confirm that. Bear in mind though that returns would be much trickier as a result.








    Generally quarters on derby shoes are not cut to meet in the middle. It may be possible for that to occur during wear if you have very low volume feet for example. The boots below has the Vass goyser stitching, it's a very water-resistant construction and excellent for inclement weather.
