Might be done in a different way than what G&G tried to do though.

@Handmadeshoes I think that the 890 looks better than 888 (I like to call 888 Tony's failed version of MH71 smile.gif ), and sounds reasonable that they want something "own". All good for me if they exchange 888 for 890, just need to try the 890 in F-width and see how it fits me.

Do the lines of JM Westons seem coarse to your eye? Just curious...

 

JM Weston still employs the original Goodyear-welting method on some of their models as shown in this video (Not JM Weston's):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZzisSt-wlI&feature=related

 

This is how Goodyear-welting was originally done, by cutting and turning a thin leather holdfast, and reinforcing it with a sheet of canvas.  I'm sure the insoles were slightly thicker than modern GY-welted shoes, since they had to have enough to cut and turn, but they were obviously not as thick as a hand-welted insole. 

 

Gemming as we know it today didn't come along until sometime around the 2nd World War. 

 

They also employ modern gemming on some models. 

 

Here is a photo that is from JM Weston, showing the original (old) GY-welting insoles:

 

The reinforcement role of the canvas is evidenced here as well, just in case you didn't watch the video.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






No, but apparently I would have made out better if I was 1/2 size larger. Nice score!

Thanks Gyasih, I was debating buying them for a couple of months, but at 30% off and my size in stock, I felt it was providence.

Those Leffot Galway's on Instagram.....dayum.
post #9836 of 14986
Interesting video, thank you for sharing and lets hope that 90% of the general public start buying shoes made like this! My God! do not ask what I see on most mens feet these days whenever I travel to the city.


Those EG Falkirks are lovely MoosicPA.

In light rain, sometimes, yes. But never in extreme weather. I dont have any EGs that I'd like to use in extreme weather - they are way too expensive and delicate for that IMO. Instead I use high hiking boots, cordovan boots and/or C&J Coniston.

Thanks to @CharlesQ, I decided to jump on these yesterday. Yes the 10% does work. This was the exact makeup I was about to have MTO'd. Finally got in touch with someone over there via phone when an email went unanswered. Glad I called. Sorry for the huge pic!

^ @Tifosi.  Dayyyuuuuum.  Those are awesome.  So I have to ask you this -- (1) how much was the damage after the discount and VAT, and (2) how did you decide to size these?  Did you drop a whole size from Brannock on the 64 last or a half size?
