@Epaulet I'm interested in this as well. If the style of side tabs with the buckles wouldn't work well with these fabrics, would it be an option to get button side tabs?FWIW, I'd actually prefer button side tabs instead of buckles on just about any trouser.
I would advise him t contact Leffot. They few times I've had QC issues with anything purchased from them, they've always been very responsive, regardless of whether it was something unworn or not. Considering that Leffot just shipped these out in the past few days, I would imagine they would still be willing to work with him to make this right.
Who knows? It's always a mystery what the defect will be. I've ordered two off of the seconds lists in the past and my defects amounted to a lot of bloom on a pair of shell PTBs that brushed right off of a pair of boots that I was never able to figure out what the defect was. I wouldn't hesitate to order off of the lists again if something I really liked showed up. The worst (IMO) defects that I've seen reported on here are shoes that are noticeably different colors...
This.I got my money back a while ago (actually, I think I just rolled it into another Epaulet purchase), but if it ever does come in, I have dibs on a pair in my size before they hit the general public.
Indeed. I was thinking about that this morning after reading the email.I am in on a pre-order of Epaulet Ravello Brixton Boots that is going on (I believe) 4.5 years now. My daughter just turned 5 and is starting kindergarten in a couple weeks. She was just a few months old when I made that order.
