    Brown, grey, khaki. Same colour shirts and yellow shirts. Possibilities are endless.
    Ask Spoo. He seems to have a love affair with green shoes.

    actually, i recommend mr. xia a few lessons in history.

    brasov in the wikipedia

    Germans living in Braşov were mainly involved in trade and crafts. The location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and Western Europe, together with certain tax exemptions, allowed Saxon merchants to obtain considerable wealth and exert a strong political influence.

    Interesting read. I guess you don't get my dry humor. It was my way of making fun of things from former communist countries. Especially shoes. I'm not a fan of Warsaw Pact shoes. [​IMG]

    In all seriousness though, I intend to get some Vass.

    Er, could you in a sentence or 2 explain the greatness of the wood peg method vs the sewn method?

    please ask mr. petkov about his take on wood pegged versus sewn... ...and please report it word for word, it's epic. a little teaser: sewn is for the unwashed, quasi.

    As for the upcharge, whhhattt! Damn!

    yep, the maftei family has been very splendid.

    I am still thinking of the grey brown stingray piece by Georg or Petkov. I thought the upcharge was a bit too much but now its worse if back in the day, it wont have cost me a cent more than 'normal' shoes. Hell, I would want all my shoes to be in exotic skin then.

    Kommerzialrat Georg Materna, if you please.

    they do a nice work. there are some pictures in the "a day in vienna" thread, see my sig.

    If you say 'A', say 'B'. Or don't say anything at all.
    So, what are the differences between pegged and sewn shoes?

    needless to say, it didn't take me a few hundreds quid to get there...
