Stitching On Handmade Cowboy Boots Really Is Better July 06 2020

The stitching on your cowboy boots can be done by hand or with a machine. There are time-saving benefits to using a machine, which is why big-name factories have them. But, there is something special about the stitching on a pair of handmade cowboy boots.


Topstitching


The topstitching on custom boots does need to be sewn using a machine. But, this isn’t the same as an automatic stitching machine that can sew ten rows of stitches in only a few minutes. The machine has one needle and requires a craftsperson to line up each row of stitches as close as 1/32 of an inch apart. This requires years of practice and expertise. 


Inlay stitching


If you have a pair of cowboy boots or are looking at some to buy, take a closer look at the inlay stitching. Professional boot makers will often use two rows of stitches around the inlaid (or overlaid) design. On well-made custom products, the stitching is extremely close together AND accurate. 


The art of stitching


Some compare the beautiful stitching of custom cowboy boots with artwork. Common designs are classic and historical, while others are modern and creative. If you are a fan of different stitching patterns, there are many options within the industry.


Some designs hold the signature of their creator. You have to look closely to find these. They are typically located on the side of the boot near the sole. There are one or two rows of stitches that hold the fenders (reinforcing leather) together. You can often find a simple pattern here that is used by the bootmaker throughout their career. 


Structural stitching


Stitching in handmade cowboy boots is not just beautiful, but it also provides stability. If you move past the art of the inlay, overlay, and special designs to the top of the boot, you can see the strength of the leatherwork. This is also where you can see the quality of the materials and craftsmanship.
