Default Re: LeBaron Bonney vs Cartouche

Even LB had to compromise with replacement materials. Stuff that is no longer available anywhere has to have a compromise for the next best available replacement product. Someone who makes up their own trim still has to find sources for materials. The original founders of LB went out of their way to contract domestic and foreign companies to weave up cloth for them. A lot of the wool stuff likely came from the UK since that has been a specialty there for more than a hundred years.
