I'm in the UK and got the email. I'll PM you the text of it in case that helps clarify anything.
I think the thinnest or at least most flexible belt I have is the Bakers Aus Nut, but I understand that is unusual amongst the Bakers leathers.
No that's fine, I think I already have it with my other samples. It would definitely be too thick for a ring belt, you're right.
Sorry didn't mean to just abandon this train of thought - the London Tan would be a great option, but I already have a West End in London Tan and I was really just looking for an excuse to use the russet ..
I agree with this - while neither is a dead on match, the Baker's is closer. #8 is such a specific colour that to get a very close match you'd need a belt made from it as well IMO.Of course, that's not to say that you should be trying to match exactly anyway, often things look better overall if they don't.I seem to say this everytime I post in this thread, but I highly recommend to everyone to get the samples, it all makes much more sense then.
Nice, I lived in Canterbury for a couple of years and your location shots always make me nostalgic.
^ Kent coast? .. Broadstairs? Looks lovely anyway. Nice fit too!
Delayed in customs, where they are demanding money with menaces.
It's similar but Black Watch is mostly green and blue, that looks like MacLeod or something.I quite like the pattern but I wouldn't wear it with a tie at all, and if I did I wouldn't choose one that so obviously picked up one of the pattern colours.
Thanks for sharing your experiences. I was very close to ordering a pair of desert longs a couple of years ago but it looks like they've pulled that model now, at least it's no longer on the website: (There are a couple more good photos on the first page of this thread.) I could email them, I suppose ..
