    The Denim (contrast) Thread

    Rhetorical question: possible to make a pair of jeans so that it passes by airport inspections without setting off the alarms?

    Utility jackets (military, safari, travel)

    Looks great. Got a pic of the finished back? Cotton Twill wears warm but then again, I am not sure if most wearers actually wear them on safaris or tropical jungles. Air-conditioning and mosquito bites are mostly "the elements" wearers have to combat.

    That's alright, no bubble being created or burst. I just buy new shoes and boots, according to what I can afford at that point in time.

    Are you buying up remaining stocks of Testa?

    Dress shoes

    Picked up a pair of dark navy Goodyear Welted derby boots from The Suit Company at one of their outlet stores in Japan. Seems interesting to me that shoemaking are now being outsourced to countries like Cambodia and Laos. I am not sure of the quality of the leather but the insides are decently comfortable. This pair comes with a storm welt too. Nails in back heels. Small little details mar it and you can see from the seams. I am not a shoe snob so I am none too bothered.

    Collateralised debt a.k.a. The Cloth Thread

    You might be surprised to know several tailors are not as discerning about cloth fabrics as one might think. I also know a few who are fairly ‘colorblind’ with regards to shades and undertones.

    Its corrected leather. While I readily admit that I have given them more care, the boots were worn on week long trips without rotation. Yeah, I will not fix them.

    I am still not sure where Hubeross comes from. Or why it is found prevalent only in Southeast Asia.

    Leather quality and how it wears over time. I have not decided if I should save these boots. Certainly the cracks are pretty substantial. The inner sock lining has also been damaged in several areas (not shown).

    How my sole has been worn over years

    This is the most painful, as these have sentimental value. I love these boots but my curiosity is stronger so here it goes. Felt midsole with foam shock absorbent material on the forefoot and heel.

    You can see where the sole meets. See the end of the tiny split. Jam a knife in and slowly work your way, splitting the sole.
