    Another Vass MTO question:

    If I order a shoe with a "regular welt," will it turn out exactly like the shoe on the left?

    As I understand, the shoe on the right has Goyser welt. But the type of Goyser stitching isn't all that I dislike about the shoe on the right. I don't like how much the welt sticks out from the leather uppers. (How close the welt is cut to the uppers)

    Hi guys, I thought the interview I made with Mr Laszlo Vass would be of interest. Here is the link to my website, hope you find it interesting:

    I will also be reviewing black plain oxford shoes I got from Vass in the near future. Will post pics also here

    If you order a regular welt, you will indeed get a shoe like the one on the left. You can ask for the sole to be cut closer or further away from the welt, but from the picture it seems to be the standard edge width (even though the picture is quite unclear, the pictures in the blog post of Ammanati show it better).
