• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

However, it is not a problem for me since the weather over here in Singapore is summer all year round.
As I regret your fate, you have no opportunity to wear tweed and flannel trousers :)
We have already had the first snow and have already melted in a few days. Now outside the window - 5 °C or 23 F°

A beautiful boot! Hope I'll be able to join in the next time these go live. Holiday planning is eating a big chunk out of the budget!

Definitely! I traveled to Sweden for about 2 weeks and had the opportunity to attend the Shoegazing Trunk Show recently, where I met Tom. It's nice to be able to wear sweater and layered up. I guess I won't be touching my wool sweater for some time.......

Wholecut Chelsea in Sienna Hatch Grain is definitely possible. Minimum is 6, price would be 375€ incl. VAT.

What other options would you like? Storm welt? Rubber or leather sole?

(Chestnut Utah is not available to me at the time).

I am looking for 3 people that might be interested in trying out a pair of sneakers, to give their opinion after a couple of weeks wear. Please PM me if you are interested and I'll share more details. Price would be cost of the sample, shipping is on me. I hope to have said samples by Christmas, but can't promise that as I'm still dotting some i's and crossing some t's on the design.

@Notch
Seam with more frequent stitch pitch? Or am I wrong?
I understand correctly that a seam with a more frequent step can only be done on a leather sole?
Tell me please, such details as in the photo (I do not know how it is called in English) strongly affect the final price?
Personally, I'm willing to pay more if the shoes will be with such parts.

I also think it would look much nicer with a finer sole stitch pitch. But again, SoH is such an affordable brand, maybe there is not much room from a cost perspective.
If possible, I would also like to see a more trimmed heel block for 270 degree outsole stiching.

one thing that might be holding back the mink suede is how it photographs. I got your adelaides in that leather and love the waythe color changes hugely depending the light. On the website it feels that the color is a bit too light/bright almost compared to how it will often comes across. Just my 2cts. Regardless: amazing leather and highly recommended!
Do you mind posting a few pictures?

Glad you're as excited as I am for using these leathers!

English Grain is hard to get + very expensive. It's about 150€ per square meters, which makes it between €50 and €60 for a regular shoe. The George STD for example uses 4.5 square foot of leather, which is 0.41 square meters. The Inca Grain is easier to get and less expensive, so easier to use for RTW.

Also, Inca Grain is available in a multitude of colours:

Nice colours, thanks. Since my screen is probably anything but calibrated, am I right that colour 4 (8230) is a bit purple-ish, and colour 6 (3993) is like chestnut? I like these colours, but not sure what model will fit best. I suppose a George STD or Frank will always work, but was wondering about a wholecut for example.
