You can't be f... serious

I can see the seam now! I can see it! rotflmao.gif

I looked really hard and I found it.

Seriously, I think NMWA's photography is really excellent.

But @RogerP takes a pretty nice photo too, and the man has taste. Seriously.

Not seen by anyone else but shoe nerds and OCD-friendly forum posters, of course.

 

You do realize it would be incredibly more expensive to get rid of that seam? Especially if you assume the tongue is on the same piece of leather as the vamp.  The size of the usable part of the hide would have to be rather large and wide.

i was hoping they would make the shell longwing without that extra seam however seeing as how calf wasnt spared, i figure im SOL as well

 

Cordovan are not usually that big of a size.  This shit aint long wing bluchers, its long wing boots, where much more leather is required to make the boots...

 

Gotta have reasonable expectations.

What kind of grain is it and in what color?
post #12456 of 20286
^^^ Pebble grain, dark brown. Not sure if Vass has a fancy name for the colour or not, but dark brown is what it is.
post #12457 of 20286

Vass calls it brown scotch grain.    The boot uses brown scotch grain and brown calf

R last.

I think I'm the only one in here who likes the S last. I have wide, fat feet, so I'm a fan of lasts with elongated chisel toes that make my feet look sleeker than they really are.

I foresee a pair of S last H-width oxfords in my very near future...

Chogall, of course it would lead to bigger waste if the boots were made from a single cut, and the seam is small -- but it's still there, lurking, hiding in plain sight, whispering thoughts of corners cut. It won't be seen by normal people, but this is Styleforum...and I'm here. The New Peter last is excellent for the model. Smart enough to avoid clunkiness, a healthy round toe, great fit, nice curves and still suitable for rugged makes. Someone remind me now: was the NP designed by Lázsló or Ugolini?

Just pointing out there's a slight difference between cutting corners and probable patterning.  If the tongue is in one piece with the vamp, I don't think the pattern allows the shaft to be cut also in one piece with the vamp.  Just saying.

 

Ugolini designed F.U.

That kind of visible seams really shouldn't be on a pair of 1k+ calf boots.

The Peter lasts are inhouse.
