Also the reason why I don’t think AC are handwelt as none of the English RTW does HW, a long time a go someone speculate that they had upper done at those factories and does the handwelt at the shop but pretty sure that wasn’t the case

One thing I did not like about my most recent pair was the pitched heel which was overdone. If not done correctly in the perfect amount it becomes a big minus.

A lot of the new shoemakers attempt to do that and most of their shoes end up looking ridiculous.

Honestly, who knows what's inside, given the track record of the company? If you open a pair, maybe you'll find a golden ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.

Considering they allegedly tried to pass off GYW as HW in their bespoke shoes, there's no way they would do HW in the RtW line.

Honestly, I started to lose respect for and trust in this company a while ago and that was purely from my own experience with them. It seems to be the case that quality and craftsmanship are not what's driving this company anymore. Sales and profits are and whatever reputation they built over the years they are cashing in on that big. Not sure for how long this can last but I can say that not in a million years at this point would I give them my money for a bespoke pair. Not to these guys.

You're forgetting having Jason Statham and Sylvester Stallone as clients.
