I've noticed that the straight leg cut has two different back pocket designs. One that loops "upward" and one that loops "downward". Is this purely cosmetic or does one represent an updated cut?

In the OP's defense B. Nelson put on a thick layer of polish when I had my shoes resoled even though I specifically asked them not to.

Kobe absolutely maxed out his potential, developed all of his skills and fully exploited his talents, but he wasn't as physically gifted as Jordan v. the League.

The flap, yes - its the initials. The patination is insane - I should take pics of the unexposed leather on the inside. Its beautiful. They cant do much for the leather thats cracked already, but thats just in a few places. That makes sense. ...
