Does anybody know, if they have shoes like in stock, or are they all made as orders come in?

On the assumption SC only makes about 1500 pair per year...8-10 makers probably sounds about right for a workshop...and also on the assumption that some of the shoe components are outsourced..i.e. sole work.....For a town similar in size to Northampton, remember Brasov has quite a few shoe manufacturers also making shoes for other firms....
There's a high-end department store in Austria called Steffl that stocks 5-8 range of the SC shoes....They are RTW and also offer MTO service...Prices range from €900 to €1300.
lol....very good........... My alias offended 3 types on SF...1) Those who dislike bobbs......2) Those who dislike Lobbs....3) Those who dislike nudity....
Interesting numbers Chogall....I got the 1500 figures from a quote from SC...couple of years back. I am sure these figures may have increased for 2013 due to popularity of the brand and increased sales outlet from new vendors like Leatherfoot and others....... And presuming their wholesale price of say about €350 to €450 per pair (based on 2x mark-up) their average revenue on 1500 is about €600K...is that alot of wonga for such an operation???
