    Thanks for the photo. I was wrong in my assumption. The stitching looks very simile to the machine stitched SC and nothing like JL P or JL SJ thus my conjecture.

    You're welcome. It wasn't my intention to prove anyone wrong or right - just wanted to share information and the behind-the-scenes peek :)

    Thanks for the peek - and good info. Not many premium manufacturers can match the degree of hand craftsmanship that you get with Vass.

    Thanks for sharing the photos. You won't get this craftsmanship from the likes of lobb and greens.

    I noticed some of Edward green stitching from my summer purchase not up to scratch

    Quality > Nearly all RTW, and not far removed from good London bespoke.
    Price = Alden.

    I might argue they are a bit more expensive than Alden (I paid ~$650 for my wholecuts), but no argument on the quality.

    Looks like a Norweger split-toe chukka in a dark oxblood calf. Maybe P2 last?

    I'd say Budapester-last. Looks crazy!

    Saying «No offense» doesn't make your statement any less offensive, just more douchey.
