I have a morbid question, which I will try to ask delicately. Can this house survive the passing of Mr. Liverano? How much responsibility does the old maestro still bare on his shoulders right now, be it in tailoring or business means. Is there a suitable substitute to lead this house when the time comes? What percentage of tailoring houses continue to flourish after their founders have passed I wonder? Especially those that don't have family in the business to...
I have noticed my last x3 GG shoes (all Arran boots) all have these track marks running parallel to most seams. I figured it was due to the sewing wheel while the upper was stitched. It is not something I have seen before on my GG shoes, and figured it was just a slight drop in production quality. No other new issues otherwise for me...
"Goodyear Superior Welt Construction", marketing term coined...
I'll have to see if I get a response with this method. My friend emailed in Japanese, hoping to hear from Taka at least. No luck there...
I have tried to email L&L x3 times in the last year (as well as a friend), with no responses. It looks like they don't care for direct contact from new US customers, only through The Armoury. Maybe their operation is too small for new business, but I'm always discouraged by bad customer communication...
It would seem like too much time and money to invest in something that could have so many complications or outcomes. I would just enjoy a good dram and save myself the trouble of meddling in such things.

Maybe even contact Glenmorangie, I believe they became famous for adding finishes to their malts, using essentially the method you describe. Maybe a...
It's pretty much a safe bet. Whenever the description does not advertise the country of origin, it's usually cause they don't think it's worth advertising. It becomes simply a statement of disclosure...
This is true, I always recognize the fact that most rookies coming to SF probably lean more to SW&D color choices, because they are more similar to society standards of men's style. I suspect most people coming for the first time to this forum probably grew up wearing nothing but darker colors. It's what they are comfortable with, and there is a deconstruction period associated with learning classic menswear style.So, while I can understand the nature of these rookie...
I'm still flagging as spam though...
Things get very subjective when people start talking about shoe quality and price, or even comparing which is "better". You set yourself up to receive relative answer, based on each individual's education or experience on the subject. That is why i would encourage you to educate yourself on the shoe threads of substance on this forum. Then apply that knowledge by taking every opportunity going forward to check any shoe brand/type of interest, so you can build...
