If nothing else they do seem overpriced for my needs. The 6B67 + lens cost I may use a domke wrap or inserts to transform an old Timbuk2 messenger bag into a camera bag. Or scour CL for a suitable bag, I do like the lowepro backpack/slingbags.
Thanks. I just bought a photographic boat anchor, a Mamiya RB67, so I'm possibly in the market for a new camera bag.
Maybe they are in the process of moving, but no NYC store is given on the RMW site - http://www.rmwilliams.com.au/international/stores.html
The NYC store closed earlier this year. Not sure if there are any third party sellers.
Quite the bargain it seems.
So, we get to see the weight of material that the Heavy Tin briefcase is made of - 34-oz. oil finish Heavy Tin
Everything is kosher until you get a cease and desist.The below taken from http://instagram.com/brianthebootmaker and I like his line from one post "Bringing quality back to the U.S. one boot at a time."The more people that know you can resole a decent pair of the boots the better. Everyone should be thinking of their boots in terms of resoling them, at least, a couple of times before binning them.Find a good cobbler and keep them busy!
Have a good trip. Lets us know how comfortable you find the backpack straps and please check in over time as I'm curious how the navy blue colour ages over time. Oh, and in case you are driving the first rule of Italian driving is - What's behind me is not important (quote c/o gumball rally)
Varnish. Lots of varnish. Just hope it doesn't flake or peel when you stupidly forget to walk on your hands.
As a followup I took them to my favourite cobbler and a patch of leather cemented in place to cover the holes and the skived down at the edges seemed to be the best solution short of tearing the boot apart. It should give them a few more miles of life, which makes me happy.
