Ok, gonna try a different tack this time w/ poal, as initial attempt to solicit opinion died a swift and silent death. Basically I'm looking to have a pair of Vass made up for casual pairing w/ denim, non-office pants, etc, and need to decide fairly soon as Vassmeister LC is getting set to put an order in. A few illustrations to suggest what I have in mind (photos courtesy of William, aportnoy, edmorel): 1) Chukka, P2 last, cognac scotchgrain, double sole, goyser stitching fore of heel. 2) Cognac calf single strap monk, F last rather than U, with added medallion: 3) Same as above, but in cognac scotchgrain... Here is a notion of what this might look like (cognac scotchgrain on F last w/ medallion), albeit in a different format (center, Theresianer high boot): [/quote] 4) Medium brown suede monkstrap, F last. 5) Same as above w/ medallion. 6) Dark brown suede monkstrap, F last. 7) Same as above, w/ medallion. 8 Medium brown suede chukka, F last. 9) Dark brown suede chukka, F last (rather than U as pictured, which does not fit me well): 10) Alternate suggestion (obviously, I'd prefer chukka or monk). Unless otherwise specified , I am assuming the somewhat voguish HAF sole arrangement (the one pair of Vass I have has it, and it suits me fine, though admittedly it can look somewhat "clublike" in some photos).
