My well loved and well worn colour 8 NST's with my Mister Freedom Signal Vest. There is something in the rugged honesty of these two pieces that appeals to me.
NST is an acronym for Norwegian Split Toes, referring to the hand stitched detail at the toe. Legend has it that Alden have a small team of 5 doing all the NST stitching. For some, Alden Indy or the PTB are the ultimate models, but for me I think it has to be the NST.
