I remember once when I worked for Jay Griffith; we were making a pair of boots with a chocolate top and hot pink inlays. We didn’t have any hot pink thread so Jay told me to stitch around the hot pink inlays with red thread. I argued with him and came very close to refusing — completely convinced that he was wrong and the boots would look terrible — but when I finished, even I would have sworn that the red thread was indeed hot pink. That’s when I learned that thread colors on leather will surprise you occasionally and not look the way you imagined.
Boots are named “Always Wanting You”
