    so, do you go to romania to buy them?

    Nope - just order online. Sizing is easy if you know your correct size on the EG 888/82 lasts.

    Agreed. Go to their website and send an e-mail. They work with you in all respects and they even sent leather samples to me.

    To anyone else who has ordered St. Crispin's as well as ET and Lynah:

    How does the sizing relate to the EG 888 last?

    How much was shipping, pricing, any customs charges?

    Did you go for the PRET line, or did you do bespoke?

    Do they come with trees? How long did your pair(s) take to arrive once ordered?

    Anything else I should know before trying to place an order with St. Crispin's?

    Sadly, these are not mine but rather taken at the workshop in Romania. Fantastic shoes, and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. [​IMG]

    it would be better if they adalaided the boot instead of having the stitching go sideways midboot.

    Sorry - no clue on how to get there. Though I doubt if the factory sells direct, but you could check.

    Gorgeous shoes. I thought they were based out of Austria, not Romania. Or did they just outsource the manufacturing there?

    Well of course a person from India would not be able to afford these shoes.

    Too expensive

    They have a wholly-owned factory in Romania.

    Sweet mother of god I cannot believe no one else has picked up on this idiocy masquerading as a post. IIRC 2 Indians are 4th and 5th on the Forbes richest list, and he's actually from the Netherlands. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    headquarter is in austria, including a showroom, where you can buy discontinued models and "seconds".

    production has always been in romania. i recall some reports about factory tours on various blog-sites(years ago), but dunno how you qualify for that. i guess, being a journalist might not be a disadvantage.

    the brand is merely unknown/"unpopular" in austria and they focus on the export market.

    not that it matters too much. in general - romania is not the safest place to travel. don't forget your bodyguards. iirc, the factory is in the heart of romania, so it might be a hassle to get there. travel expenses would easily eat up the "discount". on the other hand, the adventure and experince is priceless.

    The factory is in Brasov, while you're there, you can always visit "Dracula's Castle" nearby.

    Not more unsafe than parts of Vienna I might say [​IMG]. The factory is in Feldioara, which is near Brasov, to Brasov you can arrive either by plane (to Bucharest and Sibiu) and then the train. But I don't think they have a factory shop!

    I'm with you. How can people ignore this and not call this "person" out? What's interesting to me, is that people become more animated over the construction of a pair shoes than someone who is either trying to make a joke and is deluded enough to think it's funny, or so ignorant that he shouldn't be allowed an internet connection.

    Well done for spotting this.
