Share secrets, compare techniques, discuss the merits of materials--eg. veg vs. chrome--and above all, seek knowledge.

I suspect that a full welt is not only widely considered, but actually more appropriate for, a more "casual" or "country" shoe than what would be ordinarily regarded as "dress". So probably more appropriate for a heavy double-soled longwing derby than even a heavily brogued Oxford.
Without "good" there is no "better," without "better," no "best."
And without the recognition that there is a hierarchy of excellence in all things, nothing rises above the level of mundane.

Thanks, DW. That frames it for me nicely. :)
