    Goyser / Bentivegna handstitch is fantastic. Vass is probably the best "bang for your buck" in RTW shoes.

    Can't believe after all this time I'm just stumbling on this thread. The Norvegese stitching has always appealed to me. It is an interesting visual detail and a somewhat casual detail which looks especially good when mixing casual trousers and jeans with a beautifully constructed shoe.

    I cannot remember if this tidbit for all shoe nerds has been mentioned yet, but the Norwegian/Norvegese/Goyser stitch is among the finest inventions for making shuus water-resistant. Traditionally the stitches only go through the first leather sole, while the second is glued and nailed to place. Thus, the stitches never touch wet pavement and won't wear at all until the first sole tires, and this first layer can be exchanged until it's worn through.
