The laces came from my own choice.
we've been kidding about the laces... i've used red a lot, when i was young. actually those damned krauts wear red socks all the time, which reminds me of pippi langstrumpf and clowns.
i cannot see the benefit of a tight waist and none of the makers i used mentioned it. it must be due to the different tradition.
generally speaking, i like your pair. i don't care for oxfords, though. so, it's not on my list.
imo, good leather is mandatory to me.Edited by fritzl - 8/29/11 at 12:16pm
