I don't really understand why people buy a ton of boring/versatile clothes, like that guy with 50 pairs of epaulet chinos.  I have a couple 'plain' things that I wear all the time and just wash frequently, but if I had more I'd just wear the same 2-3 favorites til they fell apart and all the rest would collect dust.

 

Boring clothes are totally necessary, but a lot of boring clothes makes no sense.

Some of us like having the luxury of being lazy about doing laundry. biggrin.gif

Recently, I picked up some Mr. Hares that have a welt around the outside. Ever the nit picker, I e-mailed the company to see if the welt was functional or decorative. The response (From Marc! omg omg) was pretty enlightening-- apparently very few factories in Italy use welted construction, so if an Italian-made shoe has a welt, chances are it's pure decoration. Here's his reply:

Hi Steve,

The London Derby does have a decorative welt. All our Italian production shoes are either blake construction or sometimes cemented depending on the sole unit.

There are very few factories in Italy who use real welted constructions. We are looking at Blake Rapide constructions for ease of repair and hope to eventually add a complete British made welted range which is expensive if you don't own your own factory. It is difficult to offer these out of Italy as the cost is astronomical.

I hope that answers your question. Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further queries.

All the best,

Marc Hare

There, I hope you've had your nerdy shoe construction fix for the day.

i realized a week or so ago that i've been mispronouncing artishard's name in my head for like a year, but cant stop. i know it must be art-is-hard but i read it as arti-SHARD every time :/

Arty's-hard is the way I pronounced it and seeing his WAWYT especially in just tanks I always thought he was not very modest lol

British goodyear welt construction is technically cemented anyway. it's overrated.

Blake-rapide is the best of that bunch.

a decorative welt is called a "bonwelt".

Found a couple of J(et)Crew shirts the other day with enticing enough color schemes that I almost bought for wardrobe filler purposes. Alas, the sides of the hem on the medium were cut too high and the large fit like a tent all around. As important, the collars on all of the shirts are terrible, especially the point collar shirts. Flimsy and almost shapeless. I hadn't been inside one of their stores in a couple of years, so this was something of a revelation to me.
