Moo, shoes are looking really nice. Did polishing make them lighter or is the lighting different?

sunlight at different angles (as well as flash photos) will make the same pair of Antique finish shoes appear vastly different in color.

It does appear that the lighter colored polish filled in the creases with a lighter color, though.

Direct sunlight. I purposefully tried to get the multiple layers of finish to show through.

Bentivegna is my favourite.

Some people find the italian stitching techniques to be too flashy but I just love them. Especially on more casual shoes. It's the best.

Oh I like the goyserer too. Is it considered a casual detail in the AH tradition?

My logic is that it general is more suited to a double sole, and particularly the bentivegna usually has a 360 welt which IMO is a casual detail.

However, I believe that the Italians themselves do not necessarily see this as the case, and could wear some of the crazy Bettanin & Venturi norvegese stitched shoes with suits. It seems a bit peacocky though.

definitely. it's also a cachet. it takes a lot of practice and a craftsman/workshop enjoys reputation among his peers.

despite the peacockery it demonstrates that you can afford and appreciate the skills of your craftsman. it's part of the heritage and descends from work- and hiking footwear, which made his way into the city.

Was really gutted that I messed up the sizing of the alt wien derbies with goyserer from Vass.

I will probably end up re ordering at some stage. The whiskey shell was also lovely.
