We recently traveled through Budapest and spent some time with our friends at Vass Shoes. We are incredibly happy to be the sole Vass provider in Cincinnati. A true handmade shoe that will rival any out there. We spent the day with Mr. Laszlo Balazs learning more about their craft and how to properly measure for a pair of handmade shoes. The primary aspiration of Vass Shoes is to make ready-to-wear or bespoke handcrafted shoes in a variety of styles that are both comfortable and elegant, but also sturdy and long-lasting. Traditional tools are used in their workshop and hundreds of meticulous operations are performed with meticulous care, and paying special attention to detail.
In this feed, I would like to go through the makeup of my latest @hiroyanagimachi1999 commission. . Model (L33): Hiro san offers a relatively wide range of models (over 50, ranging from oxford, derby, monks, boots to even lazymans) to choose from for MTO/MTM orders. I struggled a bit between austerity oxford and 5-eyelet split-toe derby before making my mind, but I simply couldn’t say no to the cleanest apron stitching I’ve ever seen (swipe to see ➡️). . Leather: The toughest decision among all. Before meeting Hiro san, I had museum calf/dark brown calf from Annonay in mind because these were my favourite choices for my RTW collection. But then the incredible textures of this embossed calf really got me in. Konomi san added that upper work and stitching for this material tends to be more difficult as it’s harder than most leathers. So the ‘challenge’ was kindly accepted (haha) and the result, as you can see, is really impressive! . Laces: Colour-matching flat laces with silver aglets. I always prefer flat to round laces, just a matter of personal preference. . The overall idea behind this makeup is to create a pair of fine shoes which I can wear 7 days a week (casual or formal settings), I honestly think Hiro san has managed to strike a perfect balance with these masterpieces. What do you think? 👞✨ . . #hiroyanagimachi#sprezzatura#革靴#stylish#menshoes#classicmenswear#sartorialist#ootd#gentlemen#dandy#dapper#sotd#mensweardaily#follow#followme#instastyle#mensstyle#mensfashion#menswear#styleforum#stylegram#wiwt#sartorial#gentleman#今日のコーデ#靴磨き#足元倶楽部#bespokeshoes#今日の足元#shoemaker
