Unless its hand welted storm welt, its most likely done by machine using cement.

I'm looking into purchasing:

1. a "foul weather" black grainy textured shoe with dainite sole
2. a "foul weather" browngrainy textured shoe with dainite sole
3. a pair in racing green
4. a pair in navy

We've been bouncing around a few ideas, now I just need to make my decisions.

Primarily I'm looking for the DG70 last, I own the TG73 and as beautiful as they are I'm just more of a rounded toe type of a guy I think.

Anyone have any suggestions?

TG73. All the Oakham's with the medallion on the last 2 pages are the same pair just in different lights.

For 1 and 2, EG Galway and Trickers Stow fits the bill.  Not sure whats G&G equivalent of both since Wigmore and Canterbury are both balmorals instead of open lacings.

 

GG06/MH71 are more suitable if you want to go with hefty storm welt IMO.

Thanks.

I forgot to mention that I specifically want shoes and not boots. I already own quite a few boots, however when it's not so cold and its raining, etc I always need a pair of shoes.

Do either the green or navy pair in the uppingham model on the MH71. Sort of a compromise between the TG73 and DG70. Should be the sort of shoe you can wear with just about anything. biggrin.gif

I find that the uppingham is elegant enough to wear with suits (even though technically not proper) and certainly works well with odd jackets and trou. It seems that with Navy and Green the odd jacket/trou or even more casual attire is the sweet spot.

For the grainy textured shoes I presume you are thinking derby of some sort? And I second the suggestion that the hove be one of them.

I understand this - my issue is copying designs - particularly with the point of lowering costs.

But, as a designer who makes his living from his original thoughts I'm sure I feel more strongly about this than others. And the truth is the G&G Oakham is not that different than the JL chapel. So I'm probably just ranting about nothing.

Is it the gemming you want to avoid by having them hand welted, or are there other benefits?

The success of a design is judged by the number of imitators.  And if there's enough copiers, it came a classic.

The best statement is understatement.

Two things, gemming and thicker insoles from handwelting construction.  Maybe insole dimples.

 

Bespoke has more than just hand welting.
