Oh man those green suede NST are fantastic. Was holding my wallet tight trying not to pull the trigger on those and the PTB from the recent Unionmade drops. Trying to stick to only the top items on my want list this year with the Canadian dollar tanking, since I will be paying an extra 20+% on everything over last years pick ups.

 

Plus now it looks like we have Epaulet who probably will do a preorder of the #8 LHS on antique which will have to be an insta purchase.

Yeah...#8LHS would be sweet - ouch that 20% is killer.....what is getting me is my Olive Suede/Distressed leather boot I MTO'd from AE in October is still not ready(due to damage) so I feel like I still need green in my boot lineup...lol Also I am thinking the green NST will make me be fine not having the chocolote NST......my brain says no need for two green boots.

 

My only REAL want for 2015 is the #8 tanker with antique edging on commando...though every so often the #8 Indy catches my eye.

Oh, I just retired a MAKR angle card sleeve/wallet, if you want it for a template let me know, it's also made of Shell.

Good luck on your new project(s), if you apply your level of detail like you did on that bag and on your motorcycles I am more than positive you will do well.

Talk soon man.

Cheers man! Thanks so much for the kind words. When i've got my straps dialed in, you'll be the first to know. satisfied.gif

Ha! If you ever see a good deal don't think twice! There was only one run made for Tassels and they don't plan to make them again. Getting from HK was not cheap. :-(

HaHa, enjoy your leather work! I would be afraid to work on a piece of Shell, then again, I have zero experience with leather work, just experience with leather maintaining... :-)

Can Alden replace these if they break and possibly swap them out for eyelets?  The hooks seem pretty chintzy...

Any good shoe repair should be able to put in eyes for you.

The color in person on those is amazing...one of my favorite pairs..I have concern for the leather long term as I posted a while back but every time I slap them on I really find myself just staring at them at various time during the day.

Thanks, Mike. I wear these all the time and have been very happy with them.

So far, so good. They seem to be holding up just fine.
