pe·ruse: To read or examine, typically with great care Usage Note: Peruse has long meant "to read thoroughly" and is often used loosely when one could use the word read instead. Sometimes people use it to mean "to glance over, skim," as in I only had a moment to peruse the manual quickly, but this usage is widely considered an error. Sixty-six percent of the Usage Panel finds it unacceptable.
BIzarre. I just came across this very same note at dictionary.com, some 5 minutes before seeing your post. Synchronicity? Coincidence? Ahh in the interests of contribution I will say that I was ignorant of the correct usage of the verb. I now shall never forget. Not (directly) sartorial terminology, but I often notice people using the word nauseous incorrectly: that is, they seem to be invoking the word when what they really mean is nauseated. As: Those pierced Berlutis make me nauseous. Correct: Oy, those nauseous pierced Berlutis. Patrick

I have always felt that the use of the term 'Goodyear Welted' to describe production line shoes such as Alden, Allen Edmonds and the UK factories is, if not technically wrong, at least disengenuous. True 'Goodyear Welted' footwear involves the use of a cut and turned feather from the insole, not a glued-on piece of plastic, to serve as the anchor of the construction. While there might be very little practical difference between the two methods, the properly seperated use of the terms 'Welted and 'Goodyear Welted' would, at least, allow the consumer to understand that much more effort (and typically, better insole quality) went into the 'Goodyear Welted' shoe.
