Bridle leather is really, really, thick.  We are talking 11 ounces.  That would be an unwearable boot.  Think of the thickest leather belts.  That leather would be impossible to fold at the seams, much less be rolled.  You'd be looking at seams 1/2 an inch in thickness.  I think that the thickest leather used on a boot is about an 8 or 9 ounce, I think.
Alright.  The proposal stage is going to end on Friday of this week - the 3rd of July.  So, our task for the next 5 days is to whittle down the list to no more than 8 makeups to take to the "Pay to vote" stage.   Let's get at it, people.   Cheers,   Fok.
Ha!  No, it's not that.  It's just that there are, literally, about 2K high quality (well, in terms of size, at least) pictures on the camera, and downloading them to the computer makes the computer extremely unhappy.  But yes, I will try.
Copy the last version of the list and ADD to it, or your entry will not count.  ANY variation will be considered a new makeup, for obvious reasons.
Absolutely not. Both measurements are important.
All shirts are larger in the back then in the front. However, some Japanese shirts don't have as much of a difference. This is an issue for me. I'm not a heavy lifter, but I did MMA and used to be able to.do a ton of pullups, different kettlebell exercises, etc... so shirts made for overall slender guys didn't work for me.Re. Measurements, I rely on shirtmakers and patternmakers. It requires technical expertise to get it right.
Hey @DLJr, could you pm me about this? Sure it's legit, but protocol is protocol. Cheers, Fok.
Pretty much every country I've visited that is overwhelmingly of a single ethnic group is like that.
Careful about measurements. One of the most important measurements is never given: the seat. I have jeans that are sorta big everywhere else, but because the seat is too shallow, there is both a gap a the back of the waistband and is uncomfortably tight in front.
For what its worth, I really like these old style boots. Wildland firefighters all wear Whites, and thats what I'd do I'm the field. What Viberg offers is a wider vision, more and honestly, more casual wear lasts, leather options (huge plus imo), and more sole options. But yeah, if you want a pure workboot, these are nice options.
