    * I'm aware that one boot is a 6 and is a 8 hole

    I meant not the same pieces. The ones on SuFu used to be mine :)

    Eck, I agree that Layer-0 has evolved well. Each season they have tiny tweaks, nothing drastic.
    But they have had good designs and quality from the start.

    The 6 Holes in full black cordovan are on my wish list!

    My guess (based on the 988's I have) is that the slanted shaft eventually becomes straight over time as the leather on the front of the shaft creases up and breaks in. When I tried on these 988's the leather at the front above the vamp bunched up a bit which I'm guessing is intentional, to create more creasing over time.

    Located in LA, they are cool

    PM jet for more info. I had a pair of their boots long time ago. Sized .5 too big...I really liked them otherwise. I think jet still has the same pair, ankle strap boots.

    Also, I'm not a big fan of chukka's, but the leather on these looks kinda nice. Paul van Hagen

    Should have clicked on the brand link at the store.. HTC = Hollywood Trading Company apparently.

    "Due to its cooperation with a prestigious Italian manufacturer of handicraft and 'made possible the creation of accessories with a vintage look and the rough beauty, creating an aesthetic staff and making the HTC brand for fans of vintage."
