Austro-Hungarian school of shoemaking - Page 71

post #1051 of 1304
I think I've linked to this blog before, but here's a Japanese language blog devoted to Hungarian shoe making. It seems to be getting updated relatively frequently so hopefully there will be more to come. Here are some highlights:

It's cognac box calf (or at least that's what the description says in Japanese). And yeah, those plain toes are awesome.

I see, very similar shades (in the other pics in the site) to my saddle pair. Thank you

The Fabula shoes look like they'd even fit
my wide feet. It's coming time for another trip
east.

I was looking at a bunch of photos today thought I would share.

First, is a comparison of the inside of the Vass 3636 and the Alden Modified. These photos come from two different places so the shoes are likely different sizes. But you can still see some differences, especially along the inside of the foot.

Vass 3636:

Alden Modified Last (a "banana last"):

Second, here is a comparison between the Vass 3636 and the Edward Green 202 in F width. They show some key differences between the classic English silhouette and the classic AH silhouette.

this is great material.

i have to admit that i've become lazy in my research activities. this has particularly to do´with the fact 1. I've found my "things" 2 I can, like e.g. dopey, work on the the fit myself. this makes a big difference and reduces the worrying ratio immensly.

Thanks for that! If at all possible to ever take a direct overhead shot of the Vass & EG side by side that would be most appreciated.

Do you find the 3636 is about as wide as the 202 in E width or a bit more narrow fit-wise?

FWIW, the Alden is an 11D.

Unfortunately the EG 202 F width vs. Vass 3636 pics are not mine. I too would love to see a top view of the lasts side by side. They originate from here:

i assume this is purely for aesthetics?
post #1065 of 1304
yeah, mostly for aesthetics. Based on photos, I like the top view of the New Peter last the best but it's hard to get a sense of the 3636's shape. Some say 3636 is classic, some say it's short and blunt. Comparing it to the 202 puts things in better perspective.
