    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 :confused: It is my understanding that they are but the difference is clear --just don't know what it means.

    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.

    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.
