il-Quadrifoglio

Il Quadrifoglio by Qnai Atsushi

Bespoke Whole Cut Imitation Brogue for Styleforum member Nutcracker.  Featuring one piece leather construction, seamless back, and beveled waist.

Imitation brogues are shoes with sewn on seams and brogueing holes directly on the base leather, instead of using another piece of leather to lay on top for the broguing effect.

Quite an amazing pair in terms of pattern cutting.  The whole shoes is constructed using one piece of leather and the back seam is moved towards the inside heel counter contour to create the illusion of seamless back.

Look carefully at the heel counter of the picture below.  The extra leather thickness is where the wholecut joint places.
