cheers man-  point about the Dover, to paraphrase a well known Ebay seller-  'can any machine do this?'  that's what I call art.

It's the same with the rest of Vass construction -  you can't tell much about  the degree of hand work just by inspection, but knowing that they're hand lasted and hand welted says that in some far flung workshop there's people making shoes same way they did 200 yrs ago.

Pure 1930s revisited but typical of Guyot done authentically...maybe a little pointier/Italian than that era.

imo, these discussions are educational because they bring various aspects to the table and interested parties can make up their mind.

This shoe style is also known as a “d’Annunzio”, named after the Italian poet-fascist-lover.

A dandy if there ever was one (as the clothing collection in his museum reveals)
