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

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.

Both are really nice.

In the oxford I like the way everything matches, the grain and reg. leather in the laces area matches the wt / vamp area. all brogue lines and curves are almost perfectly paralel, it's very pleasant visually, my wingtip is not like that, never seen a wingtip like that.

That made sense?, maybe I need help here, again, sorry for my bad shoe vocabulary, DWFII would hate to read this.

Have the same shoe, but in smooth not grain, and they're my most complimented shoes.   It's the handy 'lake' stitching that catches the eye, I reckon.     Character shoes.

I jus realized the EG chelsea at the left looks insipid up against the AH.  Deflated, weak.  Oh well.

cheers, it's a pleasure.  F you've always said it's a great shoe, and I agree.

 

 

you know, I like the Vass monk style a lot.  Is this a trad AH thing or not?  I'm surprised the single doesn't get more love on the Vass thread.

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 didn't actually know it and yes it is nice. see me surprised, too.

a lot of good questions are coming up and i'll ask mr. materna a few of them, when i see him next. in the meantime, we're stuck with my experiences.

i wouldn't say, it's a trad thing(see above regarding questions).

i have these coming soon. probably keep them myself.

and i saw this bespoke number in materna's shop. imo, they are AH with a english twist. they are amazing.
