    Are you two competing for the title of worst English spoken on the internet?

    I agree the English leaves much to be desired

    He's a bit messed up and speaks more Chinese than English, so not sure what that makes him

    4 days production time for repeat customers. First timers would need a little more than a week from measurement to finished product.

    One fitting with a cloth mock up. No more adjustments can be made after the shoe goes into production.


    Thanks for the info.

    Does it work best if I have a pic or sample shoe? Do you all think they would do a reasonable wholecut with medallion toe?

    there are a lot of samples on display, and esp WC with medalions, but if you have something specific in mind then take a picture - avoids all disappointments

    You can also give them the medallion pattern to copy. I did it last time, better than their pattern.
    Whole cut is all about the last, check the display to see you like the last or not.
    Also go for beading instead of common folded edge, IMHO.

    Fishball,

    What do you mean by beading/common folded edge? I've never heard of those terms before.

    Hmmm.. how to said...

    folded edge is easy, the edge of the upper is "folded" over, as in this shoe:
    [​IMG]

    the beading is something like "sandwich". The upper doesn't folded, between the upper and lining, it has a piece of "beading" placed under the upper, and about 0.5mm over the edge. As in this EG [​IMG]
    but not like this Zee's:
