My first pair of boots combining a fabric shaft with leather upper - courtesy of Justin Fitzpatrick.

Beautiful - enjoy and wear them in good health. (Heck, I'm a sucker for almost anything herringbone, but those really are a wow!)

Would love to see them as part of the full ensemble when you do wear them.

Cheers, gents. This isn't my first pair from JF, but my first in quite some time. I'll look forward to pairing these with the fall / winter wardrobe.

Oh yes. I would make room on my shoe-rack for that.

Well, I'm gobsmacked!! 🤯

You'd actually deign to wear a loafer! Some gentleman evidently commissioned these judging from his monogram upon the sole. So given the proper consideration ($$$$$ :eek:) I have little doubt that they'd also be pleased to whip some up for you as well.

(Or as an alternative, Skoak informed me via e-mail of their delectable selection of penny loafers! :devil:)

One good Vass deserves another.

Looking again through Vass' offerings of RTW lasts, they each have something to recommend them for different tastes, and for different styles of footwear. But among those I'd likely find desirable, their R last appears a likely candidate of conservative moderation. And while examining this last, the shoe below leapt out at me as a simple, conservative oxford in a lovely hide beautifully executed.

If there's ever a reason to buy business / traditional dress shoes again in my life (if the several unused Aldens I have ever spontaneously wear out from lack of use), Vass is the shoe I want to try. From all the pics and comments you and others have posted over the years, they look like a very good value-aesthetic-quality combo.

In my next life! ;)
