Some time ago, before my last trip to Italy, JCusey suggested a pattern that he thought would look very nice. Â Working with Martegani, and describing how I interpreted what JCusey thought, this is the result... Pretty sweet. Â I will have them up on my site soon... and thanks again JCusey, great idea. Details: Both are basically wholecuts (the eyestay is plugged) with twin-needle stitching bringing up the pattern. Rustik calf on the 46 last, which is slightly elongated with a classic toe shape. Also, the waxing on the thread reflects in the photo, not really contrasted as much as it would appear.
