Long-time readers may remember that I wrote a quite glowing review of Saddleback Leather’s ‘Simple Backpack’ some time ago. I love the bag, but did note that Saddleback products can get quite pricey. Well, I was just contacted by the company last week to let me know that they’re having a very rare sale starting today where some items will be up to 35% off, and there will be free shipping on purchases over $200.
My understanding is that there are some changes forthcoming, and they’re trying to clear out some on-hand stock as quickly as possible. I don’t know what exactly will be on sale yet (I write this on Sunday night), but I assume the whatever it is, it’s worth a peek.
Denim is patient, take your time.
Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots / Original
Crafted with the same attention to detail found in the original, Wolverine’s 1000 Mile Boot is the cornerstone of the collection. Made in America and featuring top quality Horween Chromexcel® Leather, a stacked leather outsole and classic welt construction, the 1000 Mile Boot has been meticulously designed to replicate the original’s aesthetic.
The traditional Japanese technique of Katazome dyeing involves stenciling a design onto fabric using rice paste, which resists indigo dye. Here we see two of our participants dipping their fabric panels in our big vat of indigo. The next step (shown in the background) is a cold water rinse to remove the rice paste and any excess indigo.
