I'd certainly be interested in a follow up, manufacturing interest specifically such as how he goes about choosing a sewing factory, observations perhaps on selecting materials and dealing with mills, also particularly what goes into his boot production; who's making them, how he sources and selects the leathers - it's pretty widely recognised that leather quality has drastically declined since say the '40s - and also particularly how he settles on lasts, finding vintage lasts versus having new ones turned either from original or designing new ones. 

Boot making is really what I'm interested in and spend more time reading about than any other item of clothing / apparel.

I second hoggreaser's interest in boot production.
