And I'll third/fourth/whatever.
Alden has a history of sending out complementary laces to previous customers that have inquired kindly.
I have complained many times about Carmina's weak laces and sharp speed hooks. I love everything about the footwear except for the fact that I have to swap out laces every month or two. Sadly, I know that it's not an either/or issue with the laces and speed hooks as I've had breakage problems with shoes as well. That said, there is a synergistic effect on boots with speed hooks that make things even worse. For what it's worth, I've asked Mike (Epaulet) and Steve (GF)...

Creating a curved seam will require more fabric on the uncut (or, less cut out) side to adapt to the curve. Thus, vertical "length" will be lost as it is used to adapt to the curve. I'm imagining a shirt with a graph check pattern; with a curved side seam (i.e. front...
