    Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't know which "us" you are refering to?

    Correct. Also, Vass themselves call it Budapest model
    http://www.vass-cipo.hu/Eng/Modellek_01_Budapest/Modell_01_007_Kicsi.html

    Same wingtip model as an oxford is called Budapest Oxford.

    Some call them Budapester and Budapester Oxford. Don't think there's anything wrong with any of those nomenclatures.

    Oh. I looked under the avatar area. Didn't have time to look in the miscellaneous sig area, too time poor. Thanks.

    Just ordered my third pair of Vass. It's time for the bigest staple of them all, old english plain, black calf, U-last.
