I take it you are not a fan?

I'm not a fan of any brand, even though I have many pairs of one particular brand. There ought to be a reason why a Viennesse firm is almost despised or unknown in its own country so much so that it had to do away with its own Austro Hungarian tradition and gone full circle. Whereas other firms of same origin are thriving.
Plus I never quite appreciate anything that is hyped up.

You sound like a 15 year old hipster.

Yes, I've not had any problems as Phillip will know what adjustment to make based on your name.

Where did Bryan go BTW? Any idea?

I honestly think most people are getting PRET customization just so they can say they have a customized last.

They don't have an Austro-Hungarian tradition.

I've noticed that LS has not been offering any new makeups that they used to be noted for (that's what attracted me a couple of years ago), then they lost Cleverley last year and LSBH closed.... a couple of months ago I asked them if they had any new makeups or pre-orders in the offing I could get in on, and the answer was no, they they had none in the making, or planned currently. Hope things are ok with LS, they are one of my favorite stores.
