    not to be picky, but if this is the styling you want, wouldn't Austrian makes more sense than English?

    Seamess? Look at the lacing...

    Without a closing seam!

    He was emphasizing that it's a seamless derby (what would be the interesting point), no words about no closing seam!

    No 'whole-cut' oxford is ever made from a single piece: there is always an additional tongue.

    So, should Roy refrain from calling his stingray shoes 'whole-cut'?

    Saint Crispins even call their 114 model 'seamless' when there is a clear seam visible. A truly seamless shoe probably won't be made because of the tongue. But in case of the stingray... Both we needed to cut up 'wholly'.

    Those boots are indeed made from a single piece. Incredible, but definitely not for me.

    You are telling me no news here, but I think you dont get my point (or I didnt put clearly enough into words), I mean the seamless lacing on a wholecut derby (what would make that type of shoe really interesting).
    I am not interested in discussing nomenclature issues!

    There is a variation of the "˜whole-cut derby' without the laid-on facings.

    This one has quite an extensive under-laid tongue. Nevertheless, not without a seam.

    Thanks that is partly of what I have thought!
    This one indeed has seams at the back...I thought of at maximum manipulation, tour de force wholcut derby thing I have only seen from Lattanzi in some varations, without closing seams and without laid on facings, there is also a photo somewhere on SF!
