    I am sure Austrian ladies in Austria are better looking than the ones who make it out to HK.

    i don't think so...

    yfyf, congratulations with the store opening and good luck to you!


    LR's mother company is from Austria and specialized in traditional footwear compareable to Vass, Alt Wien or Dinkelacker. though, it's not unlikely that their range of accessoires, especially the bags are made under license in Germany.

    LR has a number of company stores in Austria and a franchise system for their shops in Austria and Germany.

    Your quoted price seems rather low. I'll doublecheck with the LR store in town [​IMG]

    As I remember, Alt Wien does not make shoes by itself. They used to place orders at Alfred Sargent and Crockett & Jones.
    i wrote compareable. the ones sold here are slightly under VASS and two steps over Dinkelacker(current models).
    LR's shoes that I've seen both in Austria and Germany were much less comparable neither to Vass, nor to Dinkelacker. I own shoes of both of these manufacturers and consider of high quality. I wanted to purchase LR, but after seeing them by myself decided to forget about LR shoes.

    Can't say anything about LR bags.

    that's all very objective. vass is vass - no discussion.

    fwiw, the dinks i have seen in a shop were made of "rubbish" leather and the inside(lining, sockliner) looked cheap. they have a "meisterstück" edition, which i have never handled personally, so i can't tell you.

    maybe you can elaborate what made you stay away from LR. understood, i have no card in this game and no economical interest. just want to know.

    btw, the bags are very nice with an important price tag...

    I saw LR's shoes last December in Vienna. I do not really remember anything great about it.
    As for rubbish leather of Dinkelacker [​IMG] that is all that I can say to you. I have a pair and can't say that its leather is cheap or plastic. [​IMG]

    +1, very impressed with the Carmina pics I have seen recently. The split-toe posted above looks great. Patrick was also wearing a very nice suede Carmina when I saw him on the recent Chan tour.

    why not send yfyf an email/ PM i am sure they could do you a transaction without the E-store being live?
