This used to be one of the great threads on SF now it is just pages and pages of bitching between a small number of people with strong and opposite opinions.

Please can we get back to pictures of shoes.

You could have used that opportunity to post a pic of some shoes but instead McCordovan will post a pair of Ronald McDonald-esque PTBs which a select few members will engage in bukake over. Am I really the only one with the balls to tell him his pigeon-toed pics of blobby Aldens made of horse asscheek and M3S argyles don't belong here??? Sheesh.

Those daily McCordovan and argyles pics made me avoid reading this thread more than the bitching. Sorry for the poster.

Great shoes, but I think the thread is lost (pun intended). It is a shame as this was one of the best. Glad you posted those -- they are quite nice.

to b honest IMO thread's been bitchin entertainment-      s'all so mean and petty,   a real train wreck

What's funny is that before all of the other appreciation threads peeps kept it correct. You'd think that now that we have umpteen threads re shoes doods would know where their stuff belongs or start their own thread.

 

 

 +1   but thread prettys-up nice with the Block function

Here is a film (from the 40s, maybe early 50s) that shows the way a welted shoe was produced at the time. Your shoes would have been made in a rather similar fashion. "Gemming" (from about 3:00 on) did exist back then, although it was different as the back of the entire insole had a canvas layer glued-on to prevent the folded-up leather holdfast to rip off.

Cheers Bengal, interesting   ^^^^

 

But I don't hold that against the vintage shoes Isshinryu posts unless he's been misrepresenting them.

 

 As u know, all shoes, including hand welted  like Vass, Lattanzi, Lobb Ltd,  are glued.

 

The reinforcements on the inside toe, counter and flanks are glued,  the lining is glued and  the midsole is glued to the welt and cork rite?  The heel lifts are glued in place, and so is the heel piece.

 

So it's  not whether shoes are glued - they all are.  -  It's about   1 functionality  and 2.  yr preference about ratio of machine versus  hand.

 

I know u've posted many many times on this DWFII, and I don't want u to go over old ground again.    From what u said in past it's debatable that a glued welt won't last as long.   Gem-failure, as with stitch-failure, is no more than anecdotal.

 

and as with glue, so for  machines.    

 

Machines are universal in shoe-making.   What renowned shoe-maker does't machine close the uppers?  

 

Vass, Lattanzi, Lobb Ltd, Cleverly bespoke, use sewing machines.   And there's the machines used in tanning the leather, making the thread, the cork, the pins, the nails and the cobbler's tools.

starting out with this. You had not grasped a) the aesthetic b) the fact that "baller" is not meant to be taken seriously:
After a while, you discovered that CDiem, Augusta, CCP actually had a brand, the same way Lobb and Green do.
This lead to lust. Did your tastes change that much in a few months? Dunno, but we can see that, despite very similar aesthetics (in WJK's case, exact replicas) you continued to shoot down unheard of brands:
The strange thing about all of this is that the SZ styles of footwear exist in a broad range within a larger meshwork and are inspired by many different shoe designs, at least some of which are the shoes that you are so keen to denigrate, as Ishii and Fritzl touched on.
The meaning of all of this?
What you guys want is for this thread to be about brands, and not shoes. A glorified shopping thread.
If that's what you really want then I will be happy to start a new thread.

What I don't get is why people get so upset about a few pictures in a thread in a forum. Calling someone a pedophile for posting pictures of old shoes? Seriously?

If people find certain poster's pictures so offensive, block said user and move on. Why fight this much about the contents of a thread on an online forum.

And to top it off - a picture of a shoemaker and the shoes I bought from him (a while back, but I can't be bothered to take new pics of new shoes now):

Wild rhea leather (and its got the scars to prove it). Blaked.

Spoo, I'm not sure about those boots but I have no idea how they will look in an outfit, which is the most important thing. Fit pic ASAP!

i wouldn't call it a bad thing. imo, sf has his dynamics and they change at a fast pace. fwiw, the thread starter has left for ages. i dunno why, though. so he cannot be bothered.

nores' acting is pretty unfair against people, who joined at a later point of time. we older guys remember all his ebay and b&s finds of used shoes he presented here. his endless bitching that he cannot afford the shoes in the thread, his stupid ten shoe commitement. endless bitching and asking which shoes he should add and where he can get them for cheap. i locate a high concentration of moronitis on his side. disgusting. i'm pretty done with this guy.

and yes, i agree the blocking function is worth every pence.

Might sound crazy, but could you please try to take some close-up pics of the finer details... the upper stitching and the waist especially (how clean it is and how close to the upper)? They look extremely nice. Congrats. thanks for trying to bring sanity to an in-sane thread.

Nope. He didn't even speak English (which we all know makes his shoes all the better, amirite?)

The double monk chukkah is a bit strange, but with all boots I wonder how often they will be seen above the first 5-6 lace holes anyway. With pants on (as I assume they will be worn- or at least hope so), they will appear to be a very fine pair of black cap dub monks... of which i strongly approve.

You hate EVERYONE, don't you. WOW. McArthur is nothing but a gentleman and steers clear of criticism and strong posted opinions. I woulda thought he was safe from your anger...
