So... if you have any misfits sittin' in the shop, I recommend you take a piece of sandpaper to 'em, double your asking price ...and head to eBay.
These "hand worn" Luccheses are flying off the shelf at $ 898.95

Give me a week or two to get it all adjusted for any pics. But I assure you that it doesn't take a lot of room for the essentials in a boot shop. I have an old style finisher, a Jack Sander, 2 curve needles, 1 Straight needle, 3 flat top machines, 1 post machine, 1 patching machine, 1 skiving machine, the usual benches, leather rack, show case and my essential CD player. The only problem is I don't have my 24 peanut sacks full of lasts in the shop yet! But today I needed a pair to build up and went to the storage shed and found it with no problem. With the 750 sq ft bldg I also have a 100 sq ft breezeway I can stack some stuff in. I don't have any Brian benches in the shop!....TR

I am looking to find a souce for some of that 'antiqued-painted' surface leather for a customer. The request is for white, cracked and distressed leather like that used in some Justins' or Frye boots from about 2005-2006. Does anyone know where to start looking for this type of skin? I thought it was cowhide they processed to look this way. Do I need to go find a photos?
