Visibly 16 stitches per 1 inch, this strengthens the shirt, and also ensures the seams remain sharp and tight. Studs A set of solid buttons with a shank or eye on the back inserted through a buttonhole; used on dress shirts and formal shirts. Stretch Tops A stretch Cotton/Lycra jersey knit.

This refers to piercing the leather from side to side, so that the stitch is visible on both sides of the leather (See Stabbed Seam). In post-Medieval shoemaking, “The Stitching” (Modern terms include: Outseam) specifically refers to the seam attaching the outer sole to the welt. Stitching may be done with either a straight or curved awl, while stabbing specifically uses a straight awl. In a medieval double soled shoe, the welt is stabbed and the outer sole is sewn in what I am referring to as a blind split seam.
