used them for storing heavy metal all gone
I have a very nice in excellent condition Schott model 585 Brown Vintaged Antique butter soft cowhide jacket in a very hard to find XXL size, I wear 48 or 50 and it fits very nicely. The price on these is $850.00 from retailers and $750 from the ebay retailers.   I have worn and owned 3 of these and seen another half dozen at Schott in New Jersey. This one is the nicest coloring of any I have ever seen and is much softer than any I have ever worn or tried on. These go...
Leather will stretch and tear if you pull on or put pressure on any single layer piece. You are supposed to use your body weight to push your feet into the boots, if you try to pull the boot up and on prior to being completely broken in, with the single layer strap, it will 99% of the time tear.

Routinely 50% sometimes 80-90% of the retail price. Those same savings have paid for the equipment many times over. I do it all the time for myself and friends.   One just needs the proper equipment and the talent or knowledge to use it (just like the manufacturers) to make the items...
Try looking up dtmsell on ebay he has sold them on ebay over the last year or so for very good pricing.
