Looks great Jase. Love the subtle brown.
Three! You mentioned the malford before, what did you get?
Picked up a new commission from P Johnson a month or so back. A light navy, or a dark mid-blue perhaps. Ariston cloth, single breast, 2 button, notch lapel, smoked MOP buttons and hand stitching on shoulders and lapel, side tabs and cuffs on the trousers.
Very happy with the result - just need somewhere to wear it out and about now. Have to attend a wedding in early August, so that should cover it.
I don't know if Redback are still making the boots, but they certainly made them for much of the past 15 years, since 1999, when the ADF adopted the Redback "Terra Defence Boot" as their standard boot. I don't know where they're made now, but they used to make them in Australia (in Sydney, I believe).
They were pretty good but there were some complaints about sizing issues and also about sole wear, so in 2007 or 2008 the ADF decided to undertake a review of the combat boot and, at the same time, to allow soldiers to wear either the Terra Defence Boot or one of four other boots from a variety of different makers. However, if soldiers wanted to wear anything other than the Terra Defence Boot, they had to fork out their own money for other authorised boot models, which elicited some protests.
Noooo, distressed leather is too uncle bad touch, and DB is too decadent.

Oh yeah, could go for one of those. Will wear one when I go for ribs at a clandestine meet.
Nice lid PoP! (Compliments)
