Looks fantastic but sizing looks to run huge, I would be a small (?) according to measurement chart. That and the prices seem high for luxire goods considering they are usually price leaders for MTM-type stuff. Would love to see how it stacks up to Falcon but dont have money to gamble at this point in time.
I think the caption was taken a little out of context. Ruco had worn those for years before they went on a hike. The welt is handsewn to the upper but the sole is glued on 90% of models (sans things like poundmaker which have stitching through the sole) to allow easy replacement. This isn't unheard of for this type of boot, they are fashion boots afterall. Most of the modern hiking boots use a lot of machine stitching and synthetic materials which tend to perform better as...
Right? It would be cool if the hides were patina'd then they constructed the boot. I get it though, because everything from the welt, the hardware and the stitching is part of the distressing which gives it a really nice look. It is just unfortunate that we are paying a premium for shoes that are almost guaranteed to be flawed out of the box.
they don't cost twice as much unless you pay via us webstore. depending on leather, the other variable is that all of the ict virgils are soaked in iron rich mud for 30 days with other things (I think metals for rust / oxidation) which give a strong patina to the leather. In addition some of them are distressed so you may see pitting or surface wear. The patch is also indigo fabric, although it doesnt factor into the cost. The main driver is the distressing that is done to...
What makeup? All virgils fit me the same but certain materials lend to a more stiff fit ie my bison feel tighter than my kngr because they have 0 give

Shoulder gussets- they add mobility but also bulk and lose the streamlined c shape back that is synonymous with most MA-1s. If you're going for a trad look there is no reason to have gussets other than adding mobility, but you sacrifice the classic silhouette. The Falcon design also has shoulder darts which is important, so there really is no major need for shoulder gussets. Patterning- Focusing on my fit and the other user's so far there are a couple things that stood...
Received MA-1 today, quality and details are awesome, I'm very happy for the price. Unfortunately patterning could use some work, and I think even if I went with recommended measurements it would be off from what I would want in the jacket so probably letting it go. For those on the fence, it is great and should fit the bill for most people here. To give some context, I'm probably about to spend a ton more for something marginally better. I would highly recommended Falcon...
