Quote: There are a lot of leather stores around, 95% of it is cheap crap. There are several higher end options, however. Rossi y Caruso is by far the best in terms of quality of workmanship.

Picked up a pair of Epaulet smiths a while back. They fit great everywhere except the waist, where they are just SLIGHTLY too tight. Can I expect them to expand in the waist, or not really?

I went through the same thing a few years ago - I got all my recommenders a book pertaining to the subject with a personal connection to me (as well as a handwritten note on the inside of the book).
