post #29671 of 37408

Sorry for the confusion @Pliny, I wasn't referring to the top stitching on Vox's loafers (great looking as they are), but the welt as on the Bonafe example above. Pics I've seen so far from Vass with Norwegian welt look a lot coarser than the Bonafe's, but is that the Goiserer stitching then? Obviously I have to work on my shoe knowledge :embar:

the Goserer is the stitching down near the sole rather than up on the vamp.  I'm confused myself, so.. 

maybe someone else?

Well, we're both talking about the same then, the sole stitching. :)

According to this AAAC post, Goiserer is the Hungarian name for a Norwegian welt: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?85307-Shoe-Construction

 

This Vass example shows welt stitching that's a lot coarser than the Bonafe from earlier. Personally, I don't like this look.

Speaking about Vox, my impression is of an extremely smart and cultured guy, with financial resources and time, who moves from obsession to obsession, conquering each field as he goes.

 

In his mid thirties he became interested in classic menswear. He conquered it; he even elevated it, damn his eyes; and now he's moved on to an intensive study of early 20th-century Western style in general.

 

Expect a treatise on Hollywood/aristocratic/leisured-class style, contributing new and piercing insights which will redefine our perceptions of that era, from Vox at some point in the nearish future.

You give him way too much credit. I'm sure he'll like you stroking his ego though. Expect to see in it his Twitter soon.

Come on. The guy's coherence blurb has become a bible. Very few of his fits are less than stellar (although there are some "old hands" who claim to remember some egregious failures in his early days - which only goes to prove my point).

I'd like to find something similar, i.e. suede single monk with norwegian welt. Can anybody here tell me where to get something like this? Thanks!

 

 

 

what's confusing I think is that this shoe has 2 lots of stitching.  The stitching up high on the vamp is often associated with the Norweger, altho this one doesnt have a split toe.  The stitching down low near the sole could be called Goiserer, or Norweger stitching AFAIK.  Which one is it that you want to replicate?  Or is it both?

^ looks good enough to eat.

 

In other food-related news, I finally nailed the roast potatoes this evening.

 

Coxy's thrice-cooked potatoes

 

Transfix whole washed Dutch Cream potatoes with a skewer in at least three places. Put in microwave on "high" for 5-6 minutes to parboil them. They should still be firm and not fully cooked-through.

 

Now crazy-cut them into medium pieces with sharp corners. Deep-fry in cooking oil of your choice until said corners turn golden. Drain on kitchen paper.

 

Partially crush the potato nuggets and then place in deep heavy ceramic baking tray with goose fat and fresh rosemary sprigs. Season heavily with freshly-ground salt and black pepper. Put in pre-heated oven at 250 degrees Celcius for ten minutes, then reduce heat and toss occasionally, until ready to serve.

 

n.b. I do not peel my potatoes. Most of the nutrients and fibre are in the skin, and the above method maximally preserves those nutrients.

I'm searching for the following Drake's shantung tie, any idea where one might purchase it?

 

There's also its sibling, but I prefer the red/burgundy.

Lovely, though for a hundred bucks you could get this from Conrad Wu.

Yeah, difficult to see on those pics. Here another try. What I'd like to replicate is the stitching on the sole welt. AFAIK, this is Norvegese/Goyser:

 

 

 

Edit: @Coxsackie I'm definitely going to try your roasted potatoes recipe!

I'm actually trying to decide between these two! I feel that the white stripes are to pronounced on the Conrad Wu version, though, no?
