Gdot: I'm sure it's just a matter of time when a cordwainer or two can be tempted away from SC. It takes just one brave (or mad) enough entrepreneur to set up a shop and coax the makers in. We haven't seen the last of Romanian shoemakers yet.

Very unlikely to happen; there are bespoke/MTO shoe makers in Romania too, but they don't have the recognition or the global reach.

Well yes - one does expect super premium prices for super premium hand work. I'm pretty sure I'd rather drop $1600 on a pair of RTW St. Cs than on a pair of RTW Lobbs at the same price, however.

Although surely Vass is completely capable of equalling Saint C in everyway, including finishing, if asked, no?
