About Captain America’s costume…
>It was evolved over several months. The details were changed many times so maybe the final result Äì because heÄôs wearing the boots Äì suggests that but they were also changed into a slightly different variation. I think that the challenge of this costume was that it had to look 40s, thatÄôs why certain elements like using leather for the straps and belt, metal buckles and not having too tight a fit were important. Forget spandex!
