    The stitching on the bottom is for attaching the sole to the upper, you're not going to see welt threads on the bottom of any shoe

    Sorry, but that statement is false. It's visible on many Allen Emonds, Alden, etc.

    I am by no means an expert, but I don't think welt stitching needs to be necessarily visible on the sole for it to be considered Goodyear welt construction.

    Based on the price of those shoes alone, $120, I wouldn't say that they are Goodyear welted.

    It's not necessary, but sometimes a clue. When you see the stitching stop like it does in the picture it's often a way for lesser shoe makers to fool people into thinking it's a proper stitch. Often the stitch like this isn't even't connected to anthing, it's all aesthetic.

    Well I'm no expert either, but it's typical to have 2 separate threads. Upper sewed to welt, then sole sewed to welt. Check out one of the many shoe construction videos (Allen Edmunds has a few on youtube) to see how this is done.

    A 360 degree welt'd shoe isn't going to have threads showing out of its 2" heel, anyway, that'd be silly. Heels are cemented/nailed to the sole after it's attached.

    This is neither here nor there though, as Johdus says, don't buy shoes from LEC =]

    Bought a pair of LEC canvas sneakers last year when they were $10 or something. Most uncomfortable pos I've ever had the displeasure of wearing. Long live PF Flyers.

    I took advantage of the recent sale and bought 2 shirts. They fit pretty well. Unfortunately, one of the shirts is longer on the right button side, by about a quarter of an inch. I doubt anyone else would notice but it bothers me. Aside from that problem, I like the shirt.

    Thanks for this David! I was thinking about buying this. What size did you end up buying?

    So what did you think of the boot? TTS or did you size down?

    Cheers.

    I got the Men's Vintage Dobby Shirt with last week's coupon, I really like it a ton. Wishing they had more than just the one color.

    I'm short on cash right now and am looking at the down jacket - does anyone have any recommendations on sizing/quality? I'm 5'10", 165 lbs and am usually a small/medium.

    Got a plaid workshirt, the one with the funny collar button, for something like $14, I think it was. I like it a lot, collar included — it's probably my new second-favorite casual shirt, in fact.
