Received my first trouser order from Luxire yesterday, with several details wrong. Fit is exact, details off. With proper attention for the customer's wishes, Luxire would offer the best price-quality deal online. I've sent an email, we'll see how this goes.

jerry, you lucky man, you. The pair even has a sexy back -- not a common sight with boots.
An interesting design, bengal! Wear them in health! As for the innards, have you any special take on the shank, insole or materials?
Done and done, the old video is now back on Keikari. I inquired from Baker's about their oak bark leather soles a few weeks ago.

Whut? StC uses machines on their outsoles? I really wish there was a meta shoe thread on SF, with detailed info on make and materials.
