My old pair of C&J Connaught, fullsize? Go here.
They are hand welted: welt is attached to insole by hand, (this step cannot be seen on the finished shoe).
The out-sole gets stitched to the welt by a hand-cranked machine. This is the row of stitching you can see
running along the welt.
Other terminology: in-soling by hand (1:45), out-soling by machine (2:50).
yes acc to Leather Soul
Smashing- + great pics
good looking tassels! enjoy wearing
Apologies that it took so long to post these. I have always wanted a pair of the Sandringhams and was able to make the purchase last week. Thanks, as always, to Steven at Leffot for great service.
Someone here wrote that the Sandringham is the most American EG shoe, I would have to disagree. This is a very English country shoe with a mixture of calf and grain. The color is Bauxite Antique with a Rosewood country calf vamp and a thistle. Yes, I like them quite a bit.
music is great. noticed the sheets of cork being cut into place rather than pouring fresh cork. im assuming their is no difference in comfort between the two
edit- i want to see jhcam's boots again
SC shoe trees are still the coolest thing ever
Thanks that was great.
The vamps are scotch grain. The quarters, counter and toe cap are full grain calf. The thistle is air.
very unpleasing. back to the start, please.
well, i don't like them at all. disgusting... sorry, to say that...
Ok and your point????? There is always a turd in the punch bowl somewhere.
