"Cool" is a very recent (and fashionable) meaning, used by kids.If you talk about yourself, it might mean "horny", but if you talk about someone else, it means "lecherous".
Nice shoes..............but, by golly, it must have been cold up north! I'm shivering by just looking at the pictures
They are samples to show off the various possibilities of colour and patina.If I remember correctly they are actually quite small (all identical in size) and I would say the soles are cemented and not pump-stitched or blind-welted..

That seems to be a problem with all George boots as this vintage EG boots demonstrate (and I have seen the problem on other samples in an army surplus stall on Portobello...
Here you are!Don't forget, there is a 'lasting allowance' of at least 5/8 in. (15 mm) on the bottom and in front of the toe(which gets tucked underneath the last). So the vamp in the finished boot is not as long as in the photograph.Side view of the upper and the finished boot.
1) Overall balance seems offIn the photograph (but pictures can be deceiving at times) the quarters look distinctly large with the stay stitching rather low. The smaller the opening, the more difficult it will be to get the last out of the finished boot. It is possible that Cleverley was a bit too cautious and designed the opening on the full side to avoid any problems with the finished boot. In the photograph the proportion quarter to vamp looks about 33% - 66%. In the...
Just like shoes?!?
