    Looks great! Can't wait to go.

    What's the price range for your desert boots?


    Hi DBC, the desert boots are HKD 3500, you mentioned you will be passing through HK, hope to see you in the store sometime!

    yfyf, comparing the pic of the Grenfell above with the ones of you wearing it, it looks longer on you. Is it the same lenght and model or was something done to it in the pic above?

    I'm 5'9" and in my size it comes to half way down the thigh, so like a 3/4 length coat.

    The bags in the bottom left photo are made by Ludwig Reitter from Germany. Heavy, bridle leather, quite stiff but will age beautifully. The pricing is approximately HKD 3500, I have to double check when I'm back in the shop!

    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]

    I found that LR last is strange, I found it diffcult to fit. The bag is very good though.

    they have a lot of different lasts in various widths. there's no solely LR last.

    fellow member comrade went through their range to find his only fitting RTW shoes on his last europe trip.

    binge and me paid their flagship store in the city of vienna a visit recently. fwiw, i stopped counting the different last shapes. nevertheless, their target markets are germany and austria and their lasts are influenced by the physiognomy of the people here.

    The LR I have seen at Tassels before they were dropped are no where near Vass or Dinkerlacker in terms of quality.

    i wrote compareable. the ones sold here are slightly under VASS and two steps over Dinkelacker(current models).

    the ones sold here are...

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