    These guys have excellent taste in art. If they curated a museum, I would visit.

    while holding up a private trunk show in vienna a few days ago, a friend of mine mentioned, that he owns a pair Mr. Kiss made for him in 1990.

    today, i received some pics. admittedly, they need some tlc. on the other hand, they never saw a repair shop. that speaks imo for their quality.

    no need to say, that they have a lot of mileage taken in the two decades. [​IMG]

    it was sort of an inside joke, but it is a valid goal. i'll do my best. it's likely, i will be in los angeles in autumn. let's see, what's possible and realistic.

    Hi Sir:

    Thanks for your response to my original query about steel on your shoes.....

    Recently my laptop died and I lost the pics you were kind enough to share with me a year ago. Is there a possibility that you can forward to me some duplicate pics pf your shoes and steel? I would really appreciate your kindness.

    Thanks for your kindness...

    MH Rusty

    PS:If there is anything you would like from me in return will be happy to send to you.


    Recently, i started several shoe restorations. i am looking for a pair of Alden in 9.5 - 10.

    Do you come to Hungary regularly for shoes, or for anything else?

    Received this masterpiece from Fritzl and absolutely happy nowadays - I've found a new love! [​IMG] [​IMG] They fit well, I can even say that too perfect for the non-bespoke shoes and have a stunning construction. Sure they are not the most elegant shoes in the world but they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned without any exception. I'm also inspired by the soft leather and stitching quality. Gyula Kiss has a golden hands! Wish him good health! Don't be afraid to support 'operation paprika'. Fritzl is a real Gentleman, selling the best shoes at the best price. They'd definitely exceed your expectations. Danke schön for the great laces!
