look at the one crat posted. it's quite different to the pebblegrain and also the suede from jerrybrowne, imo.

Unlike some other shoes these look a lot better in real life than on that photo.

Yeah very different. Don't know confused.gif It is my understanding that they are but the difference is clear --just don't know what it means.

I think Gerd's question is just about the pair in particular. The stitching does look different.

I think this may show it better.

Sorry, I missed that. I somehow doubt they would hand-stitch some pairs and machine-stiitch others. Not sure if there are machines that can do this though. On the other hand, I've heard rumors of machines that can do bentivegna stitches...
Can't give you a sure answer here, sorry.

I am the owner of the original pair. I think it is definitely hand-stitched. There is definitely variation between the stitches (not all uniform).

why not? there are machines that do goyserer stitches. it's easy to identify, though. the stitch is not braided.
post #177 of 8288
Do you mean the difference between bentivegna and goyser/norvegese or the difference between hand and machine stitched?

i said, that a machine stitch can be distinguished from a hand stitch.

Perhaps I didn't use the correct terminology. I was not saying that it is done poorly or incorrect, rather had the hallmarks of being done by hand rather than by machine.
