I got a great deal on a pair of off the rack Der Daus, but unfortunately once they broke in, they were just a bit too short. I love them other than this problem, and I was wondering if it was somehow possible to have them made taller?
What about adding trim? Alligator? I figure if it contrasts a bit then it won't look as if you just did it because they were too short! If you add trim in the same leather, I think it might look funny.
Folks used to do this sort of thing by adding the patent caps or if they hunted, the cordovan/tan/brown color. I think alligator would look cool...I don't know about current trends in the ring but the idea in and of itself just sounds cool!
Der Dau would do it, but that might be pricey. Any other bookmaker. If you go to a cobbler, I would really look for a place that's highly recommended. I would probably start by talking to the folks at my local tack shop.
