Who in Italy makes the Starrs etc for Paul Smith? They are Goodyear welted for starters.

My pair of starrs are actually not goodyear, they are blake-rapid stitched, which makes them look almost goodyear (with both internal stitch and the outer seam). If you look inside them you'll see the interior blake sole stitch

True, but I don't think the question is answered in that thread.

I believe GS did answer that question. If I remember correctly, the newer ones construction were changed and are now blake rapid stitched. GS might be able to provide more detail and clarification.
