Apologies (sincere) I don't have the time to read all of this. Can you provide a post#?Thanks in advance if you are willing.
For the life of me I can't understand why you consider me a troublemaker when I am only questioning some of the things you write. Usually when I stick to my guns and don't distracted (rather bored) when you change the subject you can't prove me wrong. For the most part when we disagree you can't prove your point with real life circumstances as I have.If I remember correctly there was a part of this discussion that related the price of a RTW high-grade VS a HW bespoke. How...
I understood every bit of it. Delete the word firm and replace it what ever you want. And don't bs (at least me) that you are not permitted.That excuse insults my intelligence.Funny....You accuse me of believing everything I hear from top executives in the shoe biz. Then you boast that you are so dignified because you challenge things to a point where you draw you're own conclusions. It all sounds good and reads well.Why is it that when I challenge what you write that I am...
You're on gladly.I only ask that you provide the forum with as much detail as you can. I'll leave that to you. I'm interested if you can provide some pictures as the process evolves. I would also ask a reasonable question. Would you be willing to send me the shoes so I can take a look at them after you are satisfied with the look and fit? I'll gladly pay the shipping both ways assuming they are being shipped State-side. And, to be totally fair and transparent....I think I...
I said in the U.S.I'm starting to think that leading people to believe that you can have a bespoke HW shoe made here in the U.S. (let alone) N.Y.C. for $1800.00 is no different than saying you can buy a RTW shoe for $50.00. If that's the case what happened to the quality to $ ratio that fueled this discussion?
That being the case, I'll order a pair from him. Willing to wait. At his price. I'll post as we go along. Hopefully we can fish together.$1800.00 for a bespoke pair that fits me. Do I keep the last? Airfare and hotel are expenses that I won't pay. If Sf is willing to absorb those charges please bring a witness.All the rest is bullshit.
Oh stop it...Just an excuse.FTW I think your work is beautiful. Full of detail. I admire your passion and, I can't hold a candle to what it takes to make a shoe. Let alone I never repaired a pair of shoes in my life. But, be that as it may, I am behind the counter and in the shop every day for over 40 years.With that, My experiences differ from yours. So be it....As you printed you can easily provide us with the name of firms that will do a bespoke hand welted shoe to the...
Apparently DW will make you a pair for your very own for about $1800.00 (my sense tells me the price is negotiable). But from what I understand you will get the best materials, workmanship and, within reason the style you want. Plus, You will have your very own last. I'm even willing to contribute 10% of that $1800.00 order (upon delivery and your satisfaction of final fit and look). To be fair though be willing to wait, the Man is semi-retied. And, I respect that.
So, are you saying that you would be willing to pay $1600.00 (I doubt that you would get that price, all-in) for a bespoke shoe that's not hand welted to the insole?And, based on the discussion here, if the welt is not hand stitched to the insole why would you? Hand stitched welting to the insole seems to be the main issue of most of this thread.
Again....do you really think that they will make you a bespoke pair of shoes, custom lasts, hand welted, and so on for a few 100 bucksDream on............
