    Alessi holsters are great & made just like the ones that Lou made for years Tom is the Manager at Alessi & the Bodyguard rig that I bought is top of the line, so don't swayed that they are not like the ones made while Lou Alessi was alive, I assure you that they are just as well made.

    I'm sure even while Lou was alive , in his later years, most of his rigs were done by his staff....everyone would love a rig made by the man himself, and most did not know if he made it or one of his underlings did...I think a lot of the "they're not as good now" is just the mind telling you "Lou didn't make it."

    I have several Alessi holsters and 2 belts from back when Lou was alive and they are top notch. I don't have anything from his shop since he passed away so I can't comment on the differences. I was told that Lou did the boning on EVERY piece that left his shop. Others did the cutting and stitching. I would think that changed near the end when he was very sick. He was not a high volume operation.

    I second this, I've bought two holsters from Skip and they are every bit as nice or nicer than the older Alessi holsters I have from back in the 80's.
