Austro-Hungarian school of shoemaking - Page 85

post #1261 of 1290

Thanks, the fit is perfect, I usually have some problems with instep and arch zone (assuming that the size and width are correct of course), in these everything is okay.

Highly recommend to try MTM or bespoke route, where Maftei and Vass have the most economic offers.

^^^ Does one actually need to go to Budapest to get MTM Vass shoes? ^^^
post #1263 of 1290

For the perfect width - yes, for the very good width - picture like J.P. Myhre has http://www.bespoke-shoes.com/rtw_english.pdf + standard volume measurements  could work. I used this 

But this does not eleminate every possible fit issue.

^^^ sdolina, thanks for the info sir. Of the MTM shoes I've had in the past, Church and John Lobb, they really didn't end up feeling or fitting that much different than my RTW shoes. Maybe a trip to Hungary isn't absolutely necessary.

Well, you can't sent him the 3D model like Maftei can make for you.

I'm confused: did you get measured in person, or not?

And as I look at this pic, I'm wondering if one these gizmos, supplemented with a few extra measurements, and a picture of the feet, might be a feasible way to get a good fit?
post #1267 of 1290

i've been measured in person at Maftei, so these shoes above are full bespoke, and I've ordered MTM from Vass based on these measurements.

And the Maftei bespoke fit is better than Vass MTM. But Vass MTM fits better than Vass RTW.

Speaking of Scheer, for those of you who understand German or who can enjoy the great pictures without understanding what is being said:

Handmacher from Austria. The 1st pair is the traditional Vienna captoe derby in black calf & wine-red Scotch grain. The 2nd pair is the traditional Budapester full-brogue derby in chestnust calf (Kastanien) & cognac Scotch grain.I'm a TTS 10.5D/E according to the Brannock device, 9.5F/G in most UK brands, 43.5 in Euro sizes. I would've ordered the 9.5, but Fritzl suggested 8.5H (wide) or 9.0G (regular). I ended up ordering the captoe in 9.0H & the Budapester in 9.0G. The 9.0H has a little heel slip, & the 9.0G is a little tight in the instep & ball, so I guess my Goldilocks size would be 9.0 between H & G. I find the shoes lovely, & they took almost exactly 4 weeks to make + a good week in transit to the US.

Asterix is magnificent too.

^ is that pegging? Really nice work.

post #1273 of 1290

^Yep, they're double pegged. The insole says in Gman "classic wooden-pegged."

This last looks totally disproportionate, does not have the finesse of comparable Alt Wiens from Vass.IMO.




Same clumsy looking sole shape. Even though the wood pecked do look nice.



This looks neat with nice finish.










Again looks totally out of shape, unless you have a big and wide foot I have no idea this will fit.
