    I agree. I keep up with your Austro-Hungarian shoe thread. I want to get over to Vienna and get a pair made at some point in my life. We are down to a couple of bespoke shoemakers here in Graz. I asked one owner of a shoe store and he said you can still apprentice at a couple of places in Styria. Bespoke tailors, on the other hand, are not hard to find here.

    riccardo is with me right now
    and he is pleased to see
    his jacket.
    he asks if you bought it
    in milan at kd store
    or with confederate motorcycles?

    That's great! It's from the KD store, but an Italian originally bought it. He never wore it, and offered to sell it to me. I was thrilled at the chance. I had seen his work before, but never jackets. Does he make a lot of motorcycle jackets? I really love the (linen?) lining, the color is great. It's now happily living in Austria waiting for a proper motorcycle trip and it fits like a glove. When did he make it?

    Thanks for the added information, I really appreciate it. I can't wait until I can commission a pair myself. I'm currently putting a bit off to the side to have something done. Keep coming with the pictures, they're definitely giving me some ideas of what I want!

    Also, I knew this jacket could stop a bullet. It never occurred to me that it was horsehide. I'm now googling how to better take care of it! Thanks again!

    it is the adventurous spirit of your shoe projects that I enjoy the most.
