Bought a pair of Red Deer FBT's and the material feels soft/stretchy, my gut tells me these are gonna fall to bits - anyone have any experience/advice?

I bought the same and had the same thought - see my comments on previous page. I've backed mine.

From what ive read albeit its thin, stretchy red deer is the 3rd most durable leather http://www.rockymountaintanners.com/what-are-the-characteristics-of-deer-leather.html

Might keep em see how it goes

I have a pair of the deer FBTs and they're fine. I'm sure that they were a Spring/Summer release originally hence the lighter weight. Still a well made shoe (although wouldn't pay full pup).

Deer skin leather is strong, don’t worry they’ll hold up - it is lighter and softer/feels a bit stretchy compared to bovine but it’s high quality

Did you treat them with crepe protect or anything?

Just back from JP. Made the mistake of lining up on Saturday for the opening season's drop. Reseller central. One reseller had 30 people line up (wearing old vis), just to make sure they got all the top raffle numbers.
I was number 23 to be allowed in, and everything was already sold out, sizes 1-4

The hype is still real

John Mayer seems like such a cunt.

Actually, I think he just does that annoying American thing of talking loudly and confidently about himself with no shame whatsoever.

'End London Cuks?'

Sounds like something MLI or one of the other politics thread lot would say.
