    well, than it has to be uniform due it belongs to the skill of the craftsmen. we've been informed that there are only two persons at EG, who can actually do it. so i expect an excellent result.

    Interesting, but I know 'Norvegese' can be done by machine.
    The rumors I heard were about some fairly high-end shoes that were supposed to be hand stitched betivegna (not norvegese).
    Do you know of any machine stitched bentivegna? I'm curious now :)

    bentivegna seems to be more rustic than the others? so it shouldn't be a problem?

    [quote name="Crat" url="/t/291745/edward-green-appreciation-pictures-info-and-where-to-buy/165#post_5312540" I've heard rumors of machines that can do bentivegna stitches...
    . [/quote]
    No!
    Rumour wrong.
    Machine can do reverse welt,
    but not bentivegna.
    Impossible,
    bentivegna have no feather so it need be done by hand.

    Thats what I always thought, however the person I heard it from is himself quite a knowledgeable and well-known shoemaker who's shoes also pop up here regularly. I'm not going to point out a name as that could get me in trouble with some friends I have in the shoe business, sorry.
    Anyway, I'm not saying this way or that...I'l just hold on to my 'agnostic machine-bentivegna' point of view untill I know for sure.:)

    Does anyone know of any retailers that carry wider than stanard width? I hate that I always have to do MTO just because I don't wear a D width.

    I was in Barcelona two weeks ago and the sales associate at Bel Y Cia made a point of noting that they stocked all of their EG models in F width. And they had some nice stuff - not sure about prices but would assume its fairly standard for EG.

    There often seems to be confusion about EG widths. It is certainly true that for most if not virtually all British makers an "E" width equals an American "D". Crockett and Jones is a good example of this.

    However, EG's philosophy is that their shoes should be snug in the width, like a slipper. Snugger than most Americans are used to. No translation of widths is necessary. This is not true for their lengths: they are different.

    The truth of this is obvious. EG prints both lengths inside, British and American, but only one width.
