I'll compare once they arrive. Keep in mind most brands use thinner leather and suede for their shafts than uppers. I also own a pair of Carmina suede derbys which are just as buttery.

 

I think my next Vass purchase will also be a reddish brown suede boot. Perhaps a U lasted "Theresianer High Boot".

Great boot, specially in suede; nothing to envy to Vasway or Galway boot.:hide:

 

I want it too.:)

If I dyed them a solid color they would look like the same as the other 20 pair of boots that I own. The "too much going on" is what makes them unique and exactly why I like them. :bigstar:

I like them a lot Jazz, and they are a pair of fantastic quality boots.

Thanks gents. The socks don't get a lot of visibility with boots so I'm not too picky! These are by Buday, the dark brown is suede, the uppers are deer leather, very soft and comfortable. The workmanship is outstanding, very pleased with these boots and brand. Check @edmorel for opportunities :smarmy:

Check the shell cordovan thread for photos of my Buday whiskey cordovan budapesters.

This is a cross post from the Meermin thread.  Perhaps someone with Norvegese construction experience can provide some guidance or insight:

 

 

Received long awaited norvegese MTO boot in brown naturecalf.  

The good:  

 

The brown naturecalf leather is very nice.

The shape of the hiro lasted boot is quite beautiful and classic.

 

The bad:

 

The welt and norvegese stitching seem quite messy in spots.  Here are some pics.

This is my first pair of Norvegese shoes or boots so I have nothing to compare this to.  However, based on online photos, it seems to me like this is quite sloppy Norvegese work.  In addition, in certain areas you can see leather between the storm welt and the norvegese stitching, ie the norvegese stitching is too high on the boot.  Edit: According to the MTO description these were supposed to have a flat welt and norvegese construction, so this was not even supposed to have a storm welt.

 

Can anyone tell me if I am right or wrong about these concerns?

post #1978 of 3314
mosy you are right & it should not look like that. I am not claiming to be expert but that's a very crappy job for brand new mto boot. My two cent, return it or exchange it for some thing else from your SA that you worked with.

It's not a storm welt I think. There is supposed to be a layer of leather between the chain norvegese and the welt. It just seems poorly done.

 

I'll dig for a pic in a sec... my pair of EB with chained norvegese that is neater.

I can certainly understand your frustration, because it appears as your expectations were not met. Upon close inspection I don't think anyone could call this perfect work, but then again from what I've read about Meermin and the price your paying it would be a bit difficult for me to expect that i would get perfect work from them anyway. From what I've read they appear to have a fairly high amount of QC issues which is not the ncommon for shoemakers in that price range. This maybe a bit sloppy but not as obvious as others I have seen. I really wouldn't expect perfect execution from Meermin because they really aren't known for that. Now whether it's the right method or not I'm sure someone else will be able to answer that question
