A while back, I realized that my ren faire boots had fallen behind my regular combat boots in terms of coolness and amount of work I'd put into them. I set out to change that.
And how should I change that? Why, buckles and straps, of course.

Those three rows of straps are my own addition to them. The straps are held on via belt loops riveted to the back of the calf of the boot; both said straps and loops are made from scrap leather harvested from cheap belts at the Salvation Army, cut to size and redyed.
I specifically have my Red Mage costume and my Ren Faire costume in mind for these. In order to better match said ren faire costume, I'm in the midst of making a pair of scale mail greaves that I'll be able to put over the boots. I'll have pictures of those up when they're done.

Funny, my boss says that to me at least once a day.

Anyway, hit some soft spot there?

Just remmember next time you're wearing a vintage denim shirt you bought on ebay, that somewhere on England, Jeremy Clarkson is probably wearing the same outfit as you.

I don't own a leather sewing machine, so making full garments from scratch is beyond my current abilities. Thus why I mostly take pre-existing pieces of clothing and modify them.
Is Bondage a brand, or are you looking for BDSM gear?

the bondage jacket is for me, but not really for me, do you understand?

Well, if you ever get one, let us know.

I've always wanted a custom-made leather jacket.

When I'm a millionaire playboy, I'm commissioning McClaw to make me a post-apocalyptic gi and a set of heavily modified Goretex motorcycle gear.
