    Don't feel bad for him. I'm sure @grc1 has a pending MTO in baby unicorn, just waiting for leather allocation...

    Oh my God. You could be on to something. I need to think about that.:puzzled:

    I don't think I have @TtownMD's chutzpah to pull off shaved iguana on the outside.

    FISA baby! Your allocation of baby unicorn from a foreign government is a matter of national sartorial security...

    It's not an exotic animal hide...but it's their first wear. Apologies for the crappy indoor pictures.

    No disrespect to my main man the undisputed champion of exotic animal hides :lol: - but I'm a firm fan of good ol' smooth calf. And this is a textbook reason why. Nicely played, sir! :fonz:

    @MrVenneri how wide do you normally go for leg opening? They look quite slim...probably a bit slimmer than I'd feel comfortable with.

    Shoes are exquisite [​IMG]

    Thanks guys!!



    I personally prefer them tapered to a 7" opening. Anything above 7.75" feels like JNCO jeans to me these days...I'd rather sacrifice a perfect trouser drape than have my shoes engulfed in billowing fabric. It looks particularly offputting on boots...which are always my first choice. Just my opinion, it's all relative.

    I'm with you on this one. I like to leave absolutely nothing to the imagination when it comes to showing off a gorgeous vamp, whether it's boots or deco.

    My only beef is with lighter-weight trousers - the slim leg tends to have a bit of friction with OTC socks, so doesn't fall quite as easily as I'd like when I get up from a sitting position with my legs crossed. I know for many that would drive them absolutely bat-shit, but for my personal taste it's a compromise worth making.

    @MrVenneri's taper looks good on him, it's all about body types IMO. I'm shorter and fatter, so 9" opening works for me... :laugh:
