pictured is a budapester model on the, i have to guess, p2 or F last.
the budapester comes in three basic variations:
standard welt, as pictured
270 degree goyserer welt
360 degree goyserer welt
unfortunately the website with a pictorial of the historical development of this iconic last has changed and is no longer available.

Nice looking shoe. Why do I always see this shape forefoot associated with the budapester?

it's simple, this is the iconic budapester last aka sharkmouth on a budapester model with 270 degree goyserer welt.

as good as it gets.

so, i was close. haven't seen the F in person, yet, so i keep my opinion reserved.

do you already know, if the 3636 fits you and what combination do you have in mind?

Guys, what about plain toe derbies?,

There are some unbelievable ones at the beginning of this thread, tell me something about them?

yes, i do.

handmacher mto. old horse oxblood calf.

and a little anecdote: when i first met master Feher in 1996 we discussed my first bespoke order.

Feher: i make you a plain derby. what colour do you want?
me: ahem, i want a ..., tbh, i don't rember
F: well, than i don't make you a pair of shoes.
me: no, no make it...

today i know that with your first order, you're pretty safe, when you keep it simple. i highly regard his opinion. it's always on my mind.

all the makers i met in my life had/have their quirky mannerism. is it better than meeting a sales rep. at a trunk show? imo, it is more authentic.

i have tons of these cute little stories in my head. i have written down a few in my mother tongue. please, do not hesitate to push the buttons, if this kind of stories is your thing. i would love to share with people of the same mind.

ps: can you give me a hint which one is the unbelievable?

I like the P2 too, but right now I like the idea of an F last  blucher in suede.  I find suede dresses up and down nicely, although I'd draw the line at wearing suede with shorts.

 

My thinking is that if the last fits u just need to vary the style to cover the entire wardrobe.

Why?, what I meant is that I like both derbies you just posted in this page, that they are different styles but love them both.

What about oxfords?, what is the place of oxfords in the AH school?, I prefer derbies in general but I enjoy oxfords too and fit me well.

as good as it gets.

Thinking about doing those in a boot version in dark brown scotch grain for next Winter...is the 270 degree goyser more traditional than the 360 degree version?

No, but I have received enough feedback from members and from Vass and I'm willing to order based on that. I'm undecided between a Theresianer, Atl Wien, plain toe, or a norweger in light colored grain. I'm leaning toward a plain toe or the norweger. It will be a gift from my wife for my 50th birthday. Any suggestions would be welcome!

You are right, it's a personal thing, I'm used to wear more substantial? footwear with jeans.

great to see you here. david, tbh honest i don't know.

from my personal experience according to my conversation with the three master shoemakers mr. kiss, mr. feher and mr. kovacs, they preferred the 270 for shoes. we never discussed boots, though.

here's my bal with 270 goyserer made by mr. kovacs. imo, a hybrid. he didn't complain.

i haven't seen many. here's an example from the workshop of mr. materna

041.jpg

i would say that oxfords are a niche product in the AH tradition. when you find some in the workshops of e.g. materna, balint, maftei, petkov to name a few of the viennese workshops they are mostly influenced by english or italian characteristics due to the demand of their international clientele. the typical local client deceides between theresianer, alt wien and norweger, that's it.

My only Vass are a pair of norwegers in a light colored grain on the P2 last. I love them, and have received many compliments on them. I think they look fantastic with a pair of dark wash denim.
