    I assume so.

    Black, burgundy, dark brown, light brown, are Vass staples.

    Ok I've made up my mind. I'm in for:

    London 5 eyelet derby, on F last, in Burgundy shell, with single leather sole and metal toe taps.

    I'd like goyser welt construction if it isn't more expensive

    I'm interested in shell double monks on F last too if I can get a quote for that

    Phew!

    I hope you won't mind my throwing this in as it's a slightly different arrangement, and a very short-term offer:

    Current MTO Announcement!

    Pardon the interruption, but here's a live one for anyone who's interested: we have a group MTO ready to go but due to a couple of late withdrawals, need another Vass fan or two (from anywhere) to join us.

    We are buying a specially-created Vass U-last adelaide, with a v-cap and matching v-facing, and brogueing around each. This is a new pattern that Vass will make for us, based on this. The planned colour option is similar to the top shoe in the picture, made in antique cognac, with a brown scotchgrain facing and toe cap. There is also a second colour option in the same order, of dark red cognac all over. Goyser stitching is optional at no extra cost, but this GMTO is for this shoe, on this last, in one of these two colourways.

    Anyone interested, please PM me for a price, I don't want to clutter this thread or disrespect retailers by talking numbers. It's a good deal, but you'll need your money ready quite soon. :)


    P.S. What is the time line for this group order? If it's cheaper than the normal direct orders, I'm probably in for this too, and several of the models mentioned are good for me.

    Anyone who read my post above about the GMTO but didn't fancy the two-tone or the red cognac, please note: oxblood is now a third colour option, with or without goyser stitching, as you like. PM if you want, but be quick. :)

    I could be interested in this shoe, though with a double sole.

    I'd be interested in either an austerity brogue or a brogued wingtip. Probably in some shade of dark brown.

    Do you have any update on the GMTO? Do we have enough to order and when will be the deadline?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I am interested in a chukka boot, U-last or F-last, oxblood/dark brown calf or dark brown suede.

    Alternatively, would be interested in a balmoral high boot, F-last, oxblood/dark brown - scotchgrain shaft with dainite soles.

    Thanks

    When the orders are detailed, Vass will be pricing our orders at the end of April/early May. From the looks of things, we should comfortably make the Vass group buy requirements.
    The planned deadline for order settlement and payment is tentatively by the end of June.



    For those who have not done so, please detail your orders.
    Please specify your choice of last, leather and boots/shoes style along with any options you'd like to include (i.e. flush metal toe-plates, double tapering to single leather soles etc.).
    For example:
    alco - Italian v-cap oxford, size 42.5 U-last, dark cognac calf + metal toes-taps



    Please try to detail your order by 30th April 2014. If you know your Vass size, please include it as well.

    Is there a sens from the previous GMTO order, perhaps, about what the pricing will be? I know that it will depend very much on the shoes ordered, but I'd like a better sense of the pricing, including shipping.

    Maybe someone can point me to the details elsewhere.

    Thanks.

    Well it looks like the Chukka will more than likely happen then, support looks good on that. How does payment work, all up front, or 50 now 50 later?

    In any case, i will have my size for you by next week. I hope making an H width is not a problem...
