    I'd definitely look at the English shoes for your wedding. Not Viberg. They do nice boots, but the English do really great shoes. Trickers are very chunky, country shoes. C&J are great. Also check out Carmina (from Spain). Very well made and you could get a fantastic shell cordovan in tan from them, you choose the last and shape you want.

    Tender Co. Denim

    I have exactly the same problem on all of my Tender jeans. It's the only gripe I have with them. I've tried the plier trick, arranging it vertically, etc but the buttons always eventually pop out. I almost lost one into the toilet, too. Lucky miss. I wonder why William didn't sew them on? The wire seems a very precarious solution.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    I recently purchased two jackets. First one is the Flat Head Single Rider in black. This replaced the smaller brown pre-owned version I had (I gifted that to a friend who fits it perfectly). This is the best leather I've ever seen. Just incredible feel and texture. The slightly larger size (new size 40) means I can actually raise or cross my arms now. The previous size 40 restricted me to t-shirt only and even that was a bit tight. This one I can wear a shirt and light sweater underneath and it's not too bad (a little tight). The second jacket was a total gamble. I had long looked at the OG-2 from Original Garment Bros, finally decided to use a proxy to order one when the pre-orders came up last September. Arrived in March. I really love it. A lot lighter than the TFH and the leather feels 'drier' but it's a really lovely horsehide and very well made. What I liked about it is the super minimal design.
