I don't think he meant it to be offensive. I read it as him saying that different cultures have different norms in terms of customer service.

Sometimes they are put off by it, because they feel the person is being "fake".
As I recall, their prices were not that competitive because they have to pay considerable duties when importing the merchandise into S. Korea, or wherever they were located.

FWIW, I've purchased several Rancourt models on various lasts, and they all seem to fit true to brannock.
Court Classic High that I special ordered through Askov Finlayson during their special event in August. I thought they were going to be brown suede, but I think they are actually Flint Kudu. In any case, I'm happy with them. Just not what I had expected.
