Once we got told the rules we played inside if them. Which is perfectly fine and we came up with cool builds.
Last time a lot if crap happened from finding out we could not do stitchdown on some leathers to different soles etc.
This time should be pretty easy...here is the leathers for stitchdown, here is the leathers for gyw...here are the styles available...and away we go.
It's an iterative process, is the issue. A flowchart like you describe is, possibly for the better, not realistic because the leathers are changing constantly, Brett is constantly innovating, etc...
Realistically, what I outlined already is a best case scenario. I don't know how to make that more clear.
Would you have any insight if Viberg is planning to do any 360 degree welts? I like the look of splitt welts on 360 more than 270...just curious
