OH TEH NOES! no fighting my dudes!!!
i agree. i just don't......
Just come from this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/191166/shoe-construction-behind-the-veil
It's fascinating and definitely worth a read - the author is knowledgeable and providing some fantastic answers to questions
Having read it I'm curious - does anybody know if GG shoes are gemmed?
Yes, the RTW line is gemmed.
As are all of the RTW shoes made in Northampton.
You will probably never find a Goodyear welted shoe that is not gemmed. It can be done without gemming but the time/labor involved is so great that one might as well hand welt the shoe if one is going to take the trouble.
Ah, thanks. The author didn't mention any brands so I was simply curious about GG as I'm particularly fond of them. I've got shoes that I've had for years that I assume are gemmed and had no problems with; and from what I read in the essay gemming seems more of an efficiency upgrade than a quality downgrade.
Mouldy shoes! m dont you just love HK weather
Neglected shoes in need of some TLC
All after a little TLC!!!
Got them from Moulded Shoe ?
Best of luck that the fungus don't Come back
OMG luk, thats a tragedy... how does that happen?
same way that you make good wine, awesome beer and great bread - airbourne yeast spoils haha, plus this is what you get for not for not wearing them for over 6 months or polishing them enough etc i think the dark brown ones i wore out in the rain whilst on the p155
Now I'm going to have nightmares.
Wow... Sorry to hear about that and hope the TLC too care of all the problems.
i am hyperventilating. SOMEONE GET ME A BROWN BAG. STAT.
nice job on the refurb tho luk.
no big deal they are just shoes afterall - adds charactor to them
cheers it was a peice of cake just time and some elbow grease
