It starts with producing a perfect reproduction down to the thread used to sew each piece, which requires an incredible attention to detail. This fanatical approach also requires investment in either sourcing deadstock fasteners or creating exact replicas of those for each and every product they put out. To release a piece of apparel or footwear made to these standards would be more than enough for most brands. The Real McCoy's goes much further than this, and looks deeply and thoughtfully at how something is made; how the original would have worn in; and how it could be made to be better without violating the spirit of the original.

None of those four could work with the stiff toughness of the fully-pit-tanned mimosa horsebutt.
