if i had to judge in an emblematic manner:

far left is pretty english and something i would wear to the annual christopher street day parade.

middle is decent, but lacks of personality, imo

last but not least, this is really tricky and i voter for english, the nuances are hard to detect, though

I posted the picture for the middle one only since we were talking about monks, . I disagree, I like the shape and the dark grain and would be happy with those, I don't want much more than that in monks, I think the shoes that I hated the most in my life are the C&J Savile (snouty, made me feel like a pilgrim and creased horribly), my only monk shoe is the Peal for BB in the 240 last, nice and rounded similar to that one, maybe a little narrower.

That made sense?,

totally, it's even nicer in person.

ah, ok. imo, the shape of a monk is harder to please due to the prominence of the buckle.

beside the killer pair, i find almond shaped lasts very accommodating for thi species.

this is a Slatin Pasha, named after the famous militarian. it's the ulitmative summer resort shoe.

i deceided to go with goyserer welt and double sole. the idea for this bespoke numer grew on me, when i realized that SP had a summer residence in the neck of my woods. trees are vintage. in RTW this model is currently available through Ludwig Reiter and Handmacher. the latter is mto and wood pegged construction.

i am very happy to introduce my "fabulous" three piece beechwood shoe trees made by master lastmaker Kálmán Berta jun.

My fellow sf friend fritzl was so generous to organize everything to make this happen.

when you handle them for the 1st time you will think it's a bit tricky to fix the "puzzle" :-) but all parts are marked with "L" and "R" so it is pure fun to enjoy the procedure.

Now some teaser pics how nice they fit my alden lwb on the barrie last.

I strongly recommend this kind of shoe treess to all of you. Order with confidence, you will not be disappointed! Fritzl here is a class act - a great guy!

who makes a better car? audi, bmw, mercedes?

imo, there's no real answer to these questions. there are several members who tried the more popular makers and iirc all of them enjoyed the experience. i dunno, if all went the wood pegged route, though.

out of my head:

banis - has some shoes by maftei. he still buys alden's. go figure.
bengal - has worked with materna and afaik he visited maftei, balint, petkov & kudweis.
concordia - has at least two pairs by balint
the.chikor - maftei
cornellian - a guy from boston is a die hard balint fan
binge - karl weiner
sator - i forgot whom he has chosen

grammaton cleric will be in vienna in may and he is planning to visit some artisans: http://www.styleforum.net/t/294889/is-europe-secretly-booming-report-from-vienna

these makers all have in common, that they do not travel. maftei does trunk shows in germany on a regular basis and afaik on request.

hope this helps
