Re: My 89' suit progress (nothing you haven't seen)


I attached my boot tops with strong super glue after prepping the surface. If you can get them stitched on, that would be ideal.
But I had no access to a leather-smith, so I simply but carefully, glued mine on. Never had an issue and it's been years since I've attached mine.

Re: My 89' suit progress (nothing you haven't seen)


Well that's the thing. I don't have any templates and like I said before, the recent pair I made, was flawed in design, so I'll have to remake mine later down the line. I only used faux leather, however you can use real leather if you can find any. Just be sure they're not too thick.
You can find leather pants on ebay that you may be able to re-purpose as your boot tops. Just cut along the pant sleeve, measured to your legs, and figure out a way to attach them.

I think there's pics in the archives from someone who got a cobler to make them for him. You can see the ideal shape. Hopefully the pics are still there.
