yeah you're probably right - i retract my statement on not stretching. that being said i wouldn't rely on stretching a pair of kangaroo visvims.. buy the right size : )
Studies conducted by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) confirm that kangaroo is one of the strongest leathers of similar substance available.
Similarly when split into thinner substances kangaroo retains considerably more of the original tensile strength of the unsplit leather than does calf. When split to 20% of original thickness kangaroo retains between 30 to 60% of the tensile strength of the unsplit hide. Calf on the other hand split to 20% of original thickness retains only 1-4% of original strength.
Kangaroo leather is lighter and stronger than the hide of a cow or goat. It has 10 times the tensile strength of cowhide and is 50% stronger than goatskin.
Studies of the morphology of kangaroo leather help explain its particular properties
I was reading this in my email notification and thought, oh no. Disaster. I remembered this seasons denim Albacore shirts which, in my opinion are as spectacular as ever. Then I saw your pics and really think this alteration looks awesome. Good job! Looks like a very fun shirt.
I have to say, whenever I see Visvim clothing, it really fascinates, it is usually that good. The feel, the fabric, the construction is quite something. Then I see the price tag and I pass out. So many stellar pieces today at Union's trunk show. We talk a lot about the shoes (naturally) but I love the clothing. Since I am not a fan of EG winter stuff this season as it is too substantial for LA, time to get into Visvim? But boy, @Fycus, I need a lot of help to get up to speed and your fit pics look spectacular ...
