    I want ... more... Guidi .. bootsss

    In a black suede/reverse or something. Maybe with a zipper or similar to the 995 I am wearing. The height of the shaft is good for me. Higher would be fine, but any lower and I rather not deal with it.

    Were reverse stag 995's always $1k+? I always thought they were cheaper.

    They're also friends, lovers and avid skiers but we do know discuss them as designers of the brands they have created so I don't understand the first question. The second one is meaningless unless you tell me what is the "manual process" and what the different grades are.

    Do Carol and Simone only design or is there a physical construction process of footwear/garments that they contribute to. If so what do they actually do (physically) besides ski.

    As you may know many designers just design and have someone else physically create their vision. I was under the impression CCP/A1923 and other artisan brand designers (layer-0, CD) were more involved with the creation process. For example, from simone's interview he says he works with his hands and makes the shoes. CCP i have no idea, the guy is reclusive.

    Hey fellas! What is the general opinion on asking a local boot maker to make somthing in the style of Augusta double zips wrinkle boot, instead of dropping 2k on it? There is a guy with good rep in my town who would do it for bout 400$. he does not distress leather of course so the look of the leather will not be the same. Would you think that is a good idea?
    thx

    I've heard 2k to 4k GBP. I think Maxfield's should have a few pair too or they were suppose too. Anybody UK based, please stop by DSM and post your thoughts-

    In Seattle, try Broadway Shoe Repair on Cap Hill. On the eastside, Bailey's in Kirkland.


    +1. And some pics of them worn would be nice.
