Pink (! Red?) Tanner Krolle bridle leather folio for a decent BIN
You've said you are going to be based in London. Don't try the seperates look, it's just not done in the City. Other than that, the consensus advice offered on the thread seems good. MTM in London at £400 is rare, but I'd try Roderick Charles as they go down to about that level in their (fairly frequent) sales.
