Would that be considered a 180 degree welt?
Would that allow a closer bevel because there is no stitching at that part of the sole?



I think it's a bespoke thing. Cleverley and John Lobb St. James (probably others) cut the outsole very close to the waist and heel making the welt appear to end at the waist.

Sorry for the lousy state of my shoes. The hurricane has given me the afternoon to take care of them, and they are mid-polish.

Edit: actually, looking very closely, it appears as if the welts end at the waist, but there is a very thin welt at the waist.

Here are some closeups. What you can't see are the stiches very close to the waist on what looks like a very thin welt. The stitches appear to connect directly to the outsole. Also, the waist (which appears to lack a closed channel) has a thin seam on the side, so I guess they must hide the channel on the side of the waist?

The welt style of the JLSJ boot (presumably bespoke because they only make bespoke) is similar to my bespoke G&Gs. I assume this is a stylistic point to make a the cleaner waist but I am not certain. I don't know how they achieve this technically, but since this is bespoke, I doubt they glue the sole. My machine made G&Gs and other machine made shoes have a welt that go further back.

Because the thread will take longer to load. And I never klick on it if the first pic is good.

That's actually where a Norvegese or Bentivegna 180 degree welt stops. I just noticed this fact and am wondering exactly what it looks like on the inside.

The pictures will have to be loaded anyway if you want to see them, and with regards to never clicking if the first picture is good - you have completely lost me...

You show the first picture then put the rest on spoiler. Many just watch that first pic without clicking on the spoiler tag (like me) And it's easy for the next one to quote without making the pictures show all over again.

I'm fairly certain that G&G and Lobb bespoke still have glue in them.

How does the U last fit vis a vis DC lewis dub monk (101, I think), or EG 888?

Very close actually - virtually the same, though the U last is a bit more narrow than the DC101 or the 888.

Thanks

 

Narrow in the forefoot, or in the heel? The 888 is a little too tight in on my last or next to last toe, whereas the DC101 is awesome. I probably should have the 888 stretched by a cobbler.

 

Sizing up doesn't sound great to me as I am US11 and just about 6ft. I am hard on my toes, so I figure the last thing I'd need as more length in addition to my fears of the clown shoes effect.

OK, I can understand why then. I like to look at the pictures though, as many as possible!
