    What is the difference in price between buying the same pair of shoes in Budapest (+27% VAT) vs buying it outside of Hungary (no 27% VAT but + shipping and bank transfer)? I would like to know if the difference is significant or not because I may be visiting Budapest next year. Thanks friends.

    Superb....my next one will also be in suede and quite possible U-Last...I find it hard to gauge Vass' suede colours from the pix Reszo sent me....he mentioned red cognac but it looks like khaki. Anyone with any knowledge on this please do share.

    This is the swatch he sent me....Rikod, yours looks like the second colour from the right...would that be right? That's the only one I like from these...I was hoping to find one that was more reddish brown.

    Thanks!, yes looks like the second from the right they call mid brown velour, I also have a pair on the dark brown (the middle one) and is very nice also. (first from the left in the photo)

    This is what I mean by reddish brown, does it have a more commonly understood name?

    And you wear around a size 8.5, correct? The F last and U last look so nice around that size.

    I think you are VAT exempt when you live outside the EU; therefore, depending on where outside the EU you live, shipping might be more, or less.
    So, for say €500 shoes, VAT is €135; to save an €, or 2... your shipping charge, bank fee and import duty fee should be lower than 135; otherwise, you are better off buying in Budapest

    Keep in mind that you can fill the VAT return form in the Vass shop, put a customs stamp when crossing a border and get your VAT back in airport or in a bank later on (with comisssion though).
