I am looking at getting some Dark Brown/Burgundy Vass Double Monks in the U last. Do let me know if you guys have any idea how to order the?Ive looked at margoandralph.com but their designs are limited while the budapester seems to never to respond to my emails. SF members Trombone and Kolecho also do not have any stock in my size.

Vass is my favourite RTW thus far. If you have the budget, i hear Saint Crispin's is even sweeter.
Essentially Vass doesn't stock any models of the popular U or F last stuff, so you pretty much have to go MTO. Even when i visited the mothership in Budapest, this was the case. You can order them directly through Vass which is a real crapshot - they either dont reply your emails at all, or inadvertently mess up your details. Or you can pay a bit of a premium for insurance and order them through Kolecho, who is super reliable and can give you good advice re-fit, and possibly even style.

I think he kinda uses it as a catch all term for Austro Hungarian shoes. There are some that are deadstock pieces, bespoke pieces that were never collected, etc..mostly wood pegged construction AFAIK. Mine are a sample pair from a project he was working on with with Handmacher for which he had the leather made to his specs. While they started off quite stiff (as wood pegged soles tend to be i guess) they've worn in nicely now, and the last shape has really grown on me.

It also depends on what kind of tan shoes.
