Picusa is th name of the company. They have a quality called CALF that is very similar if no the same than the bookbinder from Church's.
what is a cashmerino yarn? Just read it on a selvage of a piece cloth. It said cashmerino + wool blend. Google says that is a blend of cashmere + wool + acrylic? Any idea? many thanks.
\Struck through only means that the dye penetrates throughly the whole thickness of the leather while it is in the drum, I don't think that the dye can weaken the leather/ affect the grain.All chrome leather have always colour added on top, it could be pigment or an acrylic aniline. You have a base colour after the leather is dyed on the drum, in what is called the crust, plus the final finish that it is added on top. A drum dyed chrome tanned leather will always show a...
WHITCOMB & SHAFTESBURY is offering a cut suit in London but stitched in India. They also offer the same product 100% made in UK.
Thank you for the explanation. i have a theory for what is going on. This shoemaker makes sometimes a trial shoe on cemented construction. He doesnt attach the sole and he uses scrap leather/cardboad insole. I am tempted to believe that this is a trial shoe and the welt is only attached so a picture could be taken . This is the only explanation I can be think of.
A couple of weeks back I posted a couple of pics of a shoemaker attaching a canvas strip to an insole that was previously welted. Majority of the comments were that he was gemming (by hand, but hemming the strip) to the insole. Another pic insinuated a small holdfast on the insole. I have found another pictures that adds to the confusion (at least to my confusion!) as I don't understand what is going on. 1)He has nailed the heel to the insole, but he also nailed the...
I think that this shoemakers pegs, but in the hypothetical case case he doesn't do it. Is there any other way (rather than glue) to fix the sole?can he do a sort of blake stitch in the waist? I think he should need to use a sort of insole later. Does it make sense what I am saying? Anyhow I would try to get more pictures showing the same process on a different shoe. Btw wouldn't you need quite a lot of excess lather folded over if you were to peg? Would the peg need to...
so just quoting the bolded part.. 2 pictures with 2 different questionsPICTURE 1Why is he stitching a canvas strip around the welt? Also it seems that he is doing two paralel seams: one on the welt and the second one on the canvas with the same thread. I don't know if this posible as I can't figure how to 'pass' the thread from the welt to the strip.I also noticed that the is 360 degrees welt nailed at the heel.PICTURE 2I am not sure if I understand what is going here. I...
Thank you. Doesn't the welt finish to early on the insole. It is quite before the waist starts. This people don't peg the sole. How are attach the sole to the insole in that particular if there is no welt?
what is this? Can you consider this stitching aloft? I see no hold fast or channel. the upper seems to be folded over the insole and just glued. Then the welt is just stitched on top. I am not sure if a channel is in there,
