What have the two of you decided about the bottom work? Conventional leather sole, single or double? Stitching all around the heel (German seat)? Profile rubber sole? Welt on the outside? Triple-stitched Norwegian, like those Foster/Kuwana boots? Decisions.....decisions!!!
Now, if Keith Haring or Jean-Michel Basquiat had done the graffiti artwork......the owner of the shoes would be a very rich man indeed!.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Haringhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Michel_BasquiatWho knows, Thomas Brunschwig (Kalflo) might rival those two one day.
Oh, I thought he had lasted the left upper over the right last (and vice versa).I presume, that must have happened previously to someone, somewhere, sometime!
I presume, you did demand:"As an imposition, in your finest handwriting, you will write one hundred lines 'The notch is always on the inside'"
That's the one! - It's not only the waist that is aggressive about his shoes.No real harm done, a "top-lift" is easily replaced.It could have been worse, maybe both shoes of the pair done on a left last. Well, he didn't do that:

A smaller shoemaker, even a bespoke one, would not get that...
No doubt, both shoes are trial shoes.The blue one has extensive markings in silver pen all over, indicating where alterations to last and/or pattern are due to be made. No shoemaker in their right mind would draw so extensively over an upper, when there was even a remote chance the upper could be used for the final shoe.
