Ah, here we go (evidence of 20 work minutes lost, going thru old posts). Courtesy of DocBlue at Superfuture. The WW1 boots can, of course, be ordered without nails. Note they are a much sleeker last than the other William Lennon [quote=DocBlue;2646685]

Deer: http://www.90thidpg.us/Equipment/Rev...ots/index.html As for the William Lennon boots, their quality is excellent. I do agree though that their web presence is poor, but they're a pretty small operation I think. Each pair is custom made so be prepared to wait. I...

I know of one person who bought them cheap and planned to sew the cutoff legs back on to make a...
The Buzz Rickson would probabyl be my go-to chinos (if I could afford them) but I haven't seen that Balloon silhoutte, which is pretty distinctive, almost like an 80s peg leg, but very elegant. Of course, we don't know how that sample actually looks, as a fit...

I miss you over at SuFu! They produced the samples - but the retailer response wasn't good enough, that's why they didn't make it to production. A real shame.. I'm fine that they do the RRL-style distressed items, as long as it's balanced by...

It's the best LVC sample sale I've seen in seven or eight years... I can't justify getting much more denim...

LVC fans should check out this page at SuFu: http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk...4314&page=1395 Quite a few models...
VERY nice items - and a pretty good price on the duck pants considering they're Valencia Street.

This is the second bag I've had from Matt, it's ridiculously good quality, and ridiculously good value...
