Thanks. I hadn't seen comments on this, although I confess to not feeling up to trawling through every page of this thread. I did google, which I find often works better than the search function, and found little.I only hesitate in buying the pile because then I'd have no use for the quilted liner.

Besides, as I mentioned before, I've priced myself out of leather briefcases, meaning I'm too much of a snob to...
I recently picked up a tan 257 from a forum member. Paid what I consider to be a decent price for a mint bag, $210. Anyway, my wife found the Paypal invoice and challenged me as to how that bag could possibly be worth that much money. For her, it's just a canvas bag. I was at a loss, for I don't think I can explain the bag's appeal, nor does my views on quality and sourcing mean much to her. To me, it's not just a canvas bag. It's a thing of beauty, and an object of...
Now that the season of sales has begun, where am i likely to get the best deal on a 257, or what ever they call it these days?
Go for it, if you have that ability. You must find having two threads a nuisance.
Thanks for the tip.Would a belt treated with that leather stuff stain khaki chinos?
