Moving away from the clunky shoes...
Marc Guyot for Paul Stuart.
I'll take clunky any day in that case. :^)
^ awwww snap! Slewfoot, have the vass double monks grown any in the last couple weeks? Size 45.5 would be ideal
^ I think they're now at 44.5. I'll PM you when they reach your needs.
cheers man- point about the Dover, to paraphrase a well known Ebay seller- 'can any machine do this?' that's what I call art.
It's the same with the rest of Vass construction - you can't tell much about the degree of hand work just by inspection, but knowing that they're hand lasted and hand welted says that in some far flung workshop there's people making shoes same way they did 200 yrs ago.
I knew you would say that. And I see you there with your thumbs, AJ.
ravello wt boot
brown horse bit loafer
i like the style, but the last is too gaudy for my taste and the shape of my feet.
Pure 1930s revisited but typical of Guyot done authentically...maybe a little pointier/Italian than that era.
imo, these discussions are educational because they bring various aspects to the table and interested parties can make up their mind.
This shoe style is also known as a “d’Annunzio”, named after the Italian poet-fascist-lover.
A dandy if there ever was one (as the clothing collection in his museum reveals)
like i said i prefer the way the EG s stitched, not that the vass is or aint
