Few more shots as requested:

Januszkiewicz told me Skoczów factory indeed send skins to Germany. Skoczów factory is main supplier to Januszkiewicz. Quote: Originally Posted by...

Iceball, if you ever come to Warsaw, I will be happy to help translating for you.
Around 0 in Warsaw. No, he doesn't speak English. He speaks some German I guess.
I'm no expert on leather quality, but in terms of style they are superb. Slim waist, beautify shaped toe, nice details... And of course they are bespoke so it's really difficult to compare to RTW shoes.

Yes, he makes slim waist. He is also very precise in details.
I've paid 1800 PLN that is some 450 euros. Polish cobblers don't use fittings. At firs meeting they take measurements and discuss style. During second meeting you simply pick up finished shoes. Of course if anything goes wrong cobbler will make you a new pair. But I don't think it happens often with Januszkieiwcz. He has a lot of experience. He learned his trade during WWII and been a cobbler ever since.
