I am sure you know where I stand on this. Suffice to say, anyway, there have been multitudes of UN resolutions since 1974 in regards to this that the permanent members of the Security Council ignore (including one of the three guarantor powers of the 1961 Cyprus constitution on the said council, the UK) Yes I know, surprise surprise, another place where the British had their dirty little mitts just happens to be in conflict. I held out some glimmer of hope that...

Wigwam merino/silk Nomad socks. They really are excellent. Flat toe seams, nicely cushioned, perfect for me. And yes, it does change the sizing

I need to make some samples of the different ends that I can do, and post photos sometime this weekend. skalogre- the closest I have been able to find is oxblood- a very dark red. Oooh, blast it. So it is really dark? Hmm...

All of the buckles that I want to start using have been ordered. I'll probably start cutting the leather this...

I might be able to get some of the 'lesser grade' silver QR buckles (by no means poor quality, just not as nice as the EG ones. I have used one for a year or more and it's been great), but I will keep looking for others. Otis- try using as small of a split ring as you can. That will keep it from hanging...

Custom width, length, and color (from what I have but can get others), and everything will be hand cut, finished, and stitched. No rivets. I just...
I completely forgot about these. Got these from Yoox a while ago and found that while they mostly fit, they are a bit too long. Gambled that the fact they're marked EU size 43 would mean they'd fit me. Worn once. Yoox had these listed as US 10 but they're a bit larger, I'd guess a US 10.5? As you see, they are pretty much unworn. Anyway, nice boots, rubber sole, greenish-brown suede, eight eyelets. Balmoral-like style. This is the Yoox pic: Make me a...
After some years of faithful service, I have found myself with no real use for this bag as I now have to lug around a sizable laptop for work. So, it is up for sale (it is the one pictured in this thread back from when I first got it). US$170 + actual shipping cost. Current pictures:
