And thanks Jeffrey for the invite. I'm investigating starting a bespoke operation and think this new community will be invaluable.

I thank you. Why this website? Well, my saddlemaker is a history buff focusing on the Spanish
American War and wrote a book on the clothing, weaponry and accouterments.
His book noted the isssue shoes had either 4 or 5 laceholes, no surviving examples or documentation available and period photos obscured by leggings. The sort of trivia that could have been answered earlier in my life by one of the last veterans of that conflict at the V.A. hospital.
The trouble with trivia, or what people used to call fine details is ignoring at our peril of losing far more.

The bibliography posts here are going to keep me busy for a while
