@Chap The lederhosen and boots are absolutely stunning!  Does the stitching pattern have any significance or are they general to the maker and area?

Thank you for sharing.

Brilliant.

Thank you.  I know the tannery that we got the leather for Harakis shirt from.  I have asked @rocket to get in touch with them for me.  I know from my last dealings with them, language was an issue....

Cheers @goosehd yes the colour and pattern of the stitching refers to different areas. The stiching can be very time-consuming, it can take up to 120 h to make a pair. It can rise the price up to a small car for a pair. Waiting lists with the few makers are usually several years. The stiches don‘t go through the leather they run in the leather that‘s why they create a relief on the hide. A Lederhose can last for generations and are handed from father to son.

I would call them on the phone... usually these people aren‘t very firm with emails and Internet 🤷‍♂️

@Chap Thanks, let's see how Rocket gets on first.  OK?  Don't want multiple people pissing them off :-)

Of course. Just meant that rocket might try to call them, not me.

I loved to telephone with the family Kolesch for you! The samples they send were incredible lovely!

Nothing to say sorry about G.!
Everything what brings this Shacket to live, is the right choice!


@rocket
It was a wonderful lesson in german dialect.
It took over ten attempts by phone, to speak to Mr. Kolesch in person.
But even the chat with one of their Czech seamstresses was instructive, exciting and worthwhile.
I’ve send  them a photo of Haraki and the Shacket. I’m sure they’ll remember the project.

I had no idea how much of a group effort goes into some products!  You guys should write a note on how this went from an idea to a physical shirt and include it in the packaging :)

How the current generation of UHF's came about is a nice story.  We made a few way-back and they were very popular.  Then H just stopped making them.  After a few years hiatus, I asked him if we could start making them again.  His answer was no, the man who wove the UHF had moved to a new factory.  I suggested he contact the guy and see whether he could weave the same fabric at the new factory (I specialize in rocket-science).  So he did contact the guy, and guess what?  He could weave the same fabric at the new factory.....BOOM  Without wanting to generalise, the Japanese nation sometimes really struggle to think outside the box.  The guy had moved on, so it was impossible... :)
