Bespoke Acorn Kudu Norwegian's with a full welt and double sole...............
.............. yes, seamless too
Those were yours? I should have figured that when I saw them posted on the G&G tumblr
i remember someone here complained about seamless back and how they are less durable...
saw these pair on the g&g blog. awesome leather. how do they wear? are they similar to the pig skin pair you've got?
I am pretty sure the pair you are referring to that had issues are seamless wholecuts. There is no seam on those whereas there is a skin stitched seam at the toe of these Norwegians if I am not mistaken.
even with seamless wholecut i have notice an issue but like kolecho said these still have the skin stitch seem at the front just like my vintage cherry ones i first got when G&G was set up back in 2006.
NAMOR, why would you figure they where mine?? G&G have a lot more client other than just moi
chogall, i have not worn them yet, typhoon has been here the past couple of days so not wear nothing more that rubber flip flops haha, but if you want to see how ludu wear's look for poor sod posts ether here or on thehardcore thread he has some that are worn already, but the leather feel soft and the color is great, pictures are pretty tru to life also
what does it mean?
The welt runs 360 degrees rather than terminating at the waist.
Yes what he said, please see you Vass book for reference
I don't like this style usually but the leather used is brilliant.
how come seamless whole cut is less durable? pls enlighted me.
A seam allows you to take a flat piece of leather and stitch it into a shape the somewhat resembles the shoe, a little bit of stretching and shaping is still required to get proper fit on the last but it should be within the leathers natural stretch limits.
A seemless wholecut has no seems so you have to stretch the leather tremendously especially around the heel and ankle area, so much so that sometimes it is past the leathers tensile limits or always very close to it.
he, he. i didn't know it under this term. doesn't look different, anyway.
Dunno if this is the right term, but you will see difference when you see the others in a months time
