-Small disclaimer: The following is not about the way leather is earned for every household/person, nor is it about the way leather should be earned as a whole. The following is about what the various pieces mean to me.--
My hope with posting this is that it may help those that have desire to learn about Leather get a start in some way, shape or form. Again, this is not the “one true way” to earn/award Leather, it is simple a way that it can be done. If you don’t agree with this format, tweak it so that it fits you or don’t use it at all. If you do like it, by all means use it as a foundation for your own journey and growth. I simply hope that by reading this it sparks your interest enough to keep learning and pursue your goals, whatever they may be.
Boots: With thick soles and tough leather, your boots are designed to save your feet from whatever life may throw your way; they are your base and foundation.
--Specialty Items: There are two other items that I believe to be important, though they may not be commonly used in the Leather lifestyle --
Gloves: Originally used to give hands extra warmth and protection, gloves may at times be considered luxury items, even when worn in situations of service (such as a butler’s gloves).
