alright. the monk and the ptb suede are great.

the last of vienna and salzburg lacks a bit, imo. i don't know of chukkas in the austro-hungarian heritage.

very good bang for the buck. go for it.

Couldn't have said it better myself...these days since I've been dressing more casually I prefer clunky lasts. The Vass F is as slick as I like to go, but that actually works well both with suits and jeans.
