why do the boots in the left picture look a bit shorter in length than the ones in the right picture? illusion? Yeah, camera angle I think, seems to be distorting a bit in the right pic making them look longer. looks pretty sick. i think leather bag would be a better choice than filsons though. Have thought about getting something like a Julius gas mask bag but to be honest I would end up leaving it at home in favour of the filson, and I am much more in need of a black bag than another earth toned one. I don't understand why leather would be preferred texture-wise here, though.
