last HK trunk show, but only MTO i just wanted something i can beat around
these look great i have a pair of these incoming in suede:slayer:
this comment makes no sense, i doubt any tree coated or not will help with this, why would you want to retain the moisture absorbed in the tree in the shoe, if you want to let the air you best to leave the tree out for a short time before you insert it back in.from all the shoe makers i have ever spoken too, the general purpose of the tree it to retain the shape and preserve the leather from excess creasing - does nothing for absorbing moisture coated or not - AFAIK this...
what a service
what a con
Yes Daniel has changed the meassuring process, now it is alot more complex, also G&G are doing fitting shoes so it gives you a chance to double check the fit before the final shoes are made.
If it is the brown sting ray BS samples frpm G&G then that has a rear seam, i think there also might be a deco in black ray too. I remember that Tony told me they broke close to 20 needles trying to stitch them whilst making them, i honestly dont think sting ray would be possible todo seamless, nor croc or ostrich!
i dont think it will be an issue, china buck is a kind of sueded deer skin
A lot of crup coming, i bet they love you, as i know most hate working with it, looking forward to seeing them all, i think the only horror with the cap toe derby would be if it is in black (dont tell fritzl i said so ;-)) i am thinking about some loafers a pair in suede/ china buck and also perhaps a sueded lizard skin
whats next from either of your makers?
