Looks like LL Bean Signature is doing a great job with these. I'd need to see them in person but from the site they look to be good quality.

Obviously some key details are lacking in the description, like where the leather is sourced from, etc.

Not sure if you are trolling or what, but quality moccasins and hand-sewn leather goods are made in various factories throughout Maine. This is where all of these companies source their construction from.
