Simple is Nice

12 spi (stitch per inch) – that’s what you don’t want to do with double sole, believe me. But what should I do, if I have an order for it? So I did it. Only the stitching was one whole day, I had to use a special awl, as the usual would have been too wide. Many technical details… but finally here is the result: the black beauty from the workbench. Simple and nice.

  1. Great to see such fantastic work with the true craftsmanship of old. I trained at the Cordwainers College London and sometimes wish I had learned shoemaking as well – many congratulations. Tim
