ET, Imagine that Mr. Kovacs, who is heading towards eighty, does not speak and understand any German word. I dunno speak or understand the Hungarian language. We worked over the VASS book, an old Ludwig Reiter catalogue(standard in the small workshops
) and sign language.
No try on shoe, no fitting. When I returned to him, I slipped into them. I took them, broke them in and no tweaking required. That's all.
I understand, that this is a completely different experience compared to the big numbers. Hmmh, at the end of the day the result counts.
Feher speaks German fluently. He is a bit crazy in a good way. I hope Marcell will be so kind and makes an excerpt of the article on the Hungarian site, so we can share it.
His shoes are sort of stiff. If you sort them out of the rotation, you have to "break them in"
again. Today, I am wearing the burgundy wingtip. A snug fit. Each of them has his own character.
A little bit pathetic, but these are my personal thoughts on these shoes.
Understood that there was no try on shoe and additional fitting with Mr. Feher and Mr. Kiss.
Albeit there was a development in the concerted work on the result due to the language.
I am not able to do a rating between them, due to their uniqueness. All in common is the great craftmanship and the passion for their product. Unfortunately, Mr. Kovacs is already retired after his heart attack, they are at an age, where you have to say "goodbye".
