It is about refinement. Subtlety. Nuance. Just coincidentally (or maybe not), those are some of the hallmarks of "elegance" as well.

Anyone can deviate from those standards a little...just as an expression of personality.

But there's a saying in shoemaking that applies here too, I suspect--"enough of these deviations and it adds up to ugly."

They have their own unique charms.  Much like Tricker's or all those country/work/walking boots.

Goiser/bentivegna/norvegese is very very good.
Me love the heavy stitch very very much.
Me like the goiser (reverse welt stitch) mixed with bentivegna the best (5 row of stitches. it on Dinkelacker shoes). icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Best of both world.
Refinement is very good on fine dress shoe and some casual shoe.
Big brute is very good on many casual shoe.
