Like other designs, this boot may be fitted in several ways.
After skiving, inking, etc., the linings may be closed, backstrapped, topbands and button-lining stitched on, and stays for buttons pasted on. The quarters are now to be closed, etc., and the button-piece attached, and, if beaded, the bead affixed. It should then be placed to the lining and seamed round. Careful turning and rubbing out should be the next operation. The buttons should be sewn on and the front whipped up, and goloshed by one of the usual methods.
