I really do not have a dog in this fight, but please everyone look up the definition of the word aesthetically .
Umm, they are likely comparing to something like the White's semi-dress . I don't think that anyone would say that the 1K boot is 'aesthetically extremely similar' to the smoke jumper.
Hadaway ...Even the white stitching is largely still white.
Some of the bags are the well known rugged twil and tin cloth, some are 'Tempered-finish Cotton' with no indication of weight. Tenba do some nice inserts and in a range of sizes. I used one in a Timbuk 2 messenger bag for a while a la - http://lifehacker.com/5655028/tenba-insert-turns-your-messenger-bag-into-a-stealth-camera-bag. I switched to the 232 when I decided I needed a smaller bag with a smaller mouth The 232 is doing well for me at the moment as it can either...
Magnum bags up on the Filson site - http://www.filson.com/collections/filson-magnum/-cc15/ Seems like they all use the one piece nylon strap, which prevents the dilemma I had of the buckled leather strap unbuckling. Clever! The 'Made at Filson' tag is in use. Ties in with the category on the site - http://www.filson.com/collections/made-at-filson/-cc15/
Well, good to hear that they sorted it out. Hopefully, the new pair will be all present and correct.
Consider returning them or asking for partial refund. Nordstrom has excellent return policies as we have been told on this forum, but they really should not be selling items that have a damaged box and missing contents, no matter how minor.If indeed these are returns, then Nordstrom should have refused the return as the item as it looks to be an abuse of their return policy. Did the boots show signs of wear when you received them ?
I mainly use a good leather oil/conditioner and then some polish. Just before the wet & cold season some Obenaufs LP for added protection.
A simple cable tie (AKA zip tie) can also be used with no need to drill holes into the leather on the buckle side. The 'head' of the zip tie just about fits into the prong groove cut into the leather on the buckle side and will not fit back up through the hole in the other side.
Talking of straps, has anyone got a modification that will prevent the two halves of a leather strap from unbuckling ? I was taking some photos at the weekend and hit the end of a roll - yep 35mm camera - and knelt down to change the film, putting my 232 field bag on the ground. When I got up the two halves of the leather strap had managed to unbuckle themselves, which could have been a disaster if it had happened when I was wearing the bag, as it contained my digital...
