    Oh. Uh. Yeah, I don't wear a 0. Or anything close to that. But it sounds fabulous otherwise. :D

    I'm no expert but all the stitching looks very very clean, and I only see terrible fakes with terrible stitching.

    I can't say for sure if those LV boots are legit. However, like you, I would not have left them on the shelf.

    She did have them vibram soled as well . They look good to me quality is good. There are others on the bay that have the same serial number that are nwt and box. Wich is a good indication cause they stalk that thing for fakes and there's several that match.

    I think they're authentic. Fakes generally don't get the O's right - they should be perfect circles, as seen here. This is consistent on the silvertone piece on the heel as well. The lining is clearly leather. Fakes generally don't bother with leather when shiny vinyl will do. That would cut into their bottom line, after all.

    YES to the idea of a custom letterman jacket.

    I made this one a few years ago. Thrifted jacket and a couple bucks spent at an arts & crafts supply store, but so much time spent making the stencils and sewing everything. Damn, it was brutal.
