Thanks Chogall, but I don't have the knowledge to draw any conclusions from those diagrams. My question arose because I have been looking at hiking boots, and saw some double stitched models claiming to be handcrafted here: http://www.hanwag.de/schuh-kategorie.php?cat_id=8 The boots are relatively cheap compared to other handcrafted boots, e. g. Vass, so I'm not sure how good the construction is, and wondered if the stitching could be made by machine, and use gemming.
Thanks Hendrix, I will read through the thread again. I'm glad you could reassure me that Vass doesn't use gemming, and I will try to stay far far away from purely decorative stitching.
I don't care much for the tie Spoo, but the rest is great.
Thanks for the replies. Bengal, I remember that thread for the great pictures, but I don't remember if there was much talk of the various constructions? Chogall, is the "reverse welted" construction you talk about the same as "veldtschoen construction"? I hadn't even concidered that Vass could use gemming for their goyser welt. They probably don't, but I don't know. Also, are you saying that there is a difference between "norwegian welted construction" and "norwegian...
