Unfortunately, Handmade Shoes means nothing nowadays for most brands (specially GYW brands).

Weston uses in some models original GYW or " a la Weston" (differs from EG/GG/Carmina....)

Yes, Vass is the only one you mention here that hand stiches the outsole.

EB is not partially HW. It is just HW.

Vass is just HW, hand lasted and hand stiched outsole.

SC is just HW (not partially), hand lasted and machine stiched outsole

There are differences between HW and GYW for several resoles.

 

But yes, quality is good in all those brands.

 

Hope to clarify possible confusion.

 

Hey there, I certainly cannot clarify this, but does Vass really hand stitch the outsoles? 

Not to slam Vass, TBH, but I've seen some pretty crap outsole stitching on some of my Vass shoes and the SPI is deplorable as well.

But overall, they still make Ok shoes.

I only have two pairs of Vass, but the sole stitching looks pretty good to me. On the other hand, I don't own any top-tier shoes like GG, EG, JL....

+1 on the lovely call. I vehemently dislike suede (I know, get the knives ready lol), but love the contrast look of button boots. This achieves my aesthetic perfectly.

 

And that color!! :worship:

 

On a side note, can anybody give me a very basic (don't want to intrude on anyone's time with my noob-ness) rundown of pros/cons of blake/blake rapid construction.

 

That sleekness does look quite appealing.

Pretty much the same boat. Didnt want suede but want something softer than calf.

the more i wear em, the more i like em. I still like the 804 over the 946 but the lama shaft was definitely the right call.  

Seriously debating a second pair now.  



This is a great combination for a button boot! Great choice!!!
