I have no clue if LS is reruning these but even if they were they are not allowed to go to new customers. You must have a long rich history with them. Which I am not sure how you get? You must have to buy 30 pairs of Island Slippers and 20 pairs of New Balance......cause you cant get there these days buying Aldens.

assuming you live in Buffalo where the snow falls from October to April, spend some time in Honolulu

I wanted to find a briefcase to go with my ravello shell; with no luck south of $2000. So i decided to make my own.

I mess around with leatherworking in my spare time so decided to take on the project.
This is the closest match i could find locally. It's waxed cow shoulder. Super stiff with a great feel/hand.

It's fully saddle stitched, by hand, 9 stitches per inch (no machine stitching, no rivets). If i were to do it again i would change a few things.

I thought I would share.



Sorry for the poor lighting.

 

Outstanding job and what a perfect color match.

Here is a shot of the handle. Maybe a monochromatic thread would have matched the shoes better.
