    Matt, you should let your wife sneak some more pics... Have not seen enough of that Werber. Have you had any news about your BK Dubow?

    Would you believe I once thought about selling it o_O

    No, not a whisper Brett, just asked Andy for a heads up on Friday. Am thinking of changing the 1755 it to a 27798, if it hasn't been started already.

    Yes, that vintage russet was special. And to think I almost ordered a Roughwear in it back in the day... Was that 2012/ 2013?

    Thanks B-Man, its keeps getting better with wear. Its a 1402-P 1941 contract, the collar is trim and feels like a buttoned up shirt when fastened, unique to Werbers in general and hugs the neck more than say an Aero, which is one reason why I like them

    Certainly was and is Brett, 2013 vintage is mine. they only had a limited stock but it never really took off from what I gather. Very thick hide. They were trying to get that worn look up front, I guess a precursor hide to the Victory that succeeded it. Besides Couchy and myself never saw anyone else with it, but maybe they didn't post. Similar in ways to the new hides DD is currently pushing out with the combat clone look, the antique has more rusty tones in it, which is what I prefer in leather rich red undertones.

    Thanks, Art!

    I always try to get a combination that fits.
    Leather plus denim / chinos is always OK.
    Combine it with a shirt that is kind of workwear-ish like chambray.
    Boots for footwear, seldom Clarks Desert Boots, never sneakers.

    Some here take more liberty, especially when it comes to sneakers...sneakers are for sports IMHO, and they just don't match with my personal "dress regulations" ;)

    Best regards,

    Ties

    Different shirt, different chino, fresh underwear...

    Same bag and shoes, though. And the Aero again.

    @nkang Yes, it's chambray, a classic two pocket, flapless workshirt.
    I have a couple of Carhartt's "Clink" shirts from a local outlet center, they are cheap, not too blousy and perfectly wearable after you have restitched almost every button :(.
    Their QC seems to be quite sloppy...

    Best regards,

    Looks wonderful Andrew. The 39 Boots look to be in excellent nick too.

    And nice to see that Aussie SD getting an airing as it's a stunner!
