This is too much
why do you think that?
look at the one crat posted. it's quite different to the pebblegrain and also the suede from jerrybrowne, imo.
Unlike some other shoes these look a lot better in real life than on that photo.
Yeah very different. Don't know It is my understanding that they are but the difference is clear --just don't know what it means.
Full story, including a part on apron stitching here.
I think Gerd's question is just about the pair in particular. The stitching does look different.
I think this may show it better.
Sorry, I missed that. I somehow doubt they would hand-stitch some pairs and machine-stiitch others. Not sure if there are machines that can do this though. On the other hand, I've heard rumors of machines that can do bentivegna stitches...
Can't give you a sure answer here, sorry.
I am the owner of the original pair. I think it is definitely hand-stitched. There is definitely variation between the stitches (not all uniform).
why not? there are machines that do goyserer stitches. it's easy to identify, though. the stitch is not braided.
Do you mean the difference between bentivegna and goyser/norvegese or the difference between hand and machine stitched?
i said, that a machine stitch can be distinguished from a hand stitch.
sorry to hear that. i would ask for an exchange, if possible.
Perhaps I didn't use the correct terminology. I was not saying that it is done poorly or incorrect, rather had the hallmarks of being done by hand rather than by machine.
Separate names with a comma.
