Also, I feel I should add the clicking doesn't look like its hand done, probably stamped by a hydro clicking machine, Blake McCabe welted, cheap leather........ It is highly unlikely those AS "country range" boots are clicked using a "die" (a punch form like a cookie cutter). The investment in a set of dies is extremely high, not only do you need a die for each piece of the pattern (which can be five or more per design), you also need for every size a separate set of dies. You would only invest that kind of money if you have a long-running model which you can produce in significant quantities. Boots, at one time the main stay of footwear factories, have become a niche product. For those few boots, any Northampton shoe factory turns out these days, dies would be a totally unwarranted expense. Whether a shoe is hand clicked or utilizes dies, has no difference on the final product. With either method, you can click as many pieces or as few pieces as you want to get out of a particular hide. Either method employs an operator and it's the skill of that clicker, (and his brief, whether or not he has to cut "˜economical"˜) that decides the final outcome. Those clicker, doing all day nothing else than clicking, are highly experienced to see flaws in the leather and cut around those flaws. One thing used in quality work (but not in lesser grades) is the fact that all parts of a particular pair are cut from the same hide. It is much simpler and quicker to use the same form (whether it's a die or a cardboard pattern) and continue clicking that same piece over and over until you have enough, and than take another form and continue. Who is Blake/McCabe? You might mean Blake/McKay, but this is not a welted method.
