    Some thirty minutes ago one modest courier brought a parcel from Hungary. Little did he know it contained some serious pornographic content, best suited for hardcore shoe nerds (HSN) only. Weather permitting, I should have a photo session tomorrow -- with close-ups to boot.

    Just wanted to share a few photos I took recently of my latest pair of Vass shoes - finally 'blue loafers' has arrived. Courier damaged the box a little unfortunately [​IMG]
    Should publish a blog post over the weekend or Monday.

    Photos taken during different light conditions, hence the white balance is a bit off on some of the pics, sorry

    Very interesting indeed! Never seen this model before from Vass? How's the suede quality? Last time I made one the nap was quite rough...this one looks kinda soft though... In any case, great makeup and great color! Have been seeing a lot of blue makeups lately...

    Hi @agedashidofu . I am not sure this model is available as a standard RTW, I just wrote to Rezso and let him know what would I like and if they are able to do that. So it was an MTO order.
    I have seen suede from Vass which was rather rough and also fluffy, a bit too much for my liking. I asked for a soft suede and what I got is very nice. It is soft and quite smooth. If you zoom in the 2nd picture though you will see a mark on left shoe (outer side) so it is not flawless. In general I am very happy although for people with thinner and lighter feet I would recommend going 0.5 size down compared to U last, this is on F - better suited for a loafer in my opinion.

    Vass v cap oxford in Shell Cordovan
    Magic touch by Dandy Shoe Care (Alexander Nurulaeff)

    This particular shell had blemishes and irregularities which I wasn't particularly fond of - so I decided to give Dandy Shoe Care a try and what came out afterwards was magic! Extremely pleased with the outcome...

    Thanks guys...

    @NAMOR: The shell had too many variation in color and quite a few blemish. I wouldn't normally mind but it was just to a point where it was not pleasing aesthetically.

    @Roger: It was your first EG pair that gave me the inspiration to try him out and yes he has mad skills indeed!
