    Russet Goatskin: untouched and monkeyed with

    That's Aero's or Alexander's goat, right? It's straight veg tanned, so washing doesn't only take the clear aniline glazing off the top but also washes the tannage out of the leather. Vegetable tanning agents don't bond as permanently to skin fibres as chrome tanning salts do. Repeated washing of...

    Alpha jackets - Frankfurt, Germany

    Alpha jackets in Europe are most likely a license product of a German company which are assembled to high specs in China. Usually the fit and manufacturing quality is better than on (current) American made Alphas. Same story with Schott...only difference is that the licensee is a manufacturer...

    Scott Willis Service Belt for OFJ

    Hi Folks, recently had a chance to take a couple of pictures of the Service Belt Scott Willis created for Original Flightjackets, Germany. The belt is based on a 50s Alpine mountain infantry belt which in return is based on an Austrian service belt from WW 1. So the pattern is quite old but I...

    The Magnificent Seven / The Sons of Katie Goodyear (Pic heavy)

    Thanks fellas, I wish I could say that I would start every day by choosing my "Belle de Jour" but in fact it's usually the combination of jacket and trousers that comes first after that all the other bits and pieces chime in automatically. As you can see all of the boots shown are either brown...

    The Magnificent Seven / The Sons of Katie Goodyear (Pic heavy)

    Thanks, guys! I mainly use Elephant Leather Preserver, a fully synthetic fat which works great on all kinds of leathers (except cordovan). I never use a proper pigmented shoe polish...only neutral/clear shoe waxes for a light finish. Yes, I am! They are very well made and clearly a step up...

    Custom Russell Moccasin Boot in brown Horween CHXL from OFJ...Pic heavy

    Thanks guys!! Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear them around the shop. I just stepped into them for a moment and they felt very comfortable and soft due to the thick boot-like leather lining. The lining material Sascha requested is called Aquatan, a very soft and smooth, yet durable water...
