Troy Pennock Jun 18, 6:29 AM CDT As I have more than ten pairs of Lucchese boots, accumulated over a fifteen year period, I think I am somewhat familiar with the brand. In days gone by, the top of the line was CLASSIC HANDCRAFTED, the middle of the line was 2000, and the entry level was SINCE 1883. Now when I shop for a pair and want the top of the line, if it is not stamped on the sole, CLASSIC HANDCRAFTED, I have to ask a salesman. Even then I get wide ranging answers. Is there some code in the numbering system that will tell me the quality level at a glance? Thank you. Your loyal customer, Troy Pennock Veronica (Lucchese) Jun 18, 11:16 AM CDT Howdy!
