Got my HF CXL wallet from Chester Mox. It's a really dark green.
Although, it doesn't seem to stay aligned very well, is this because the "spine" of the wallet is so soft? Any ide how to avoid this?

Was just introduced to this thread and i have to say you guys do some amazibg work.

dibadiba, have you considered opening a small business just as a secondary income source? Your wallets are excellent and that bag looks like absolute sex.

Thanks for the kind words! I do sell items here and there...I mostly just peruse forums giving and taking advice where I can. You can check out my page here, if you like, where I post my recent work for family/friends/anyone interested.

pm a quote on a bag like that in a darker brown, chrome accents/buckles etc, with no d hooks for shoulder straps.. I've been looking lazily for a bag, this might be enough to push me over the edge in buying..

Hey Leather experts, 

 

Does anyone know where I can find the 4th buckle from the left in this picture? The polished silver one? Im not sure where to go to buy individual buckles like that. Thanks

Check out Ohio Travel Bag: C-947 ($2.95, 1 1/2" nickel). You'll need an account but it is fairly easy to setup. Their customer service is great and ships very quickly. The only downside is there is a $30 minimum order.

Just crossposted this one to the briefcase porn thread, but I like posting my work here for fellow enthusiasts!
I just finished making this yesterday, and thought I'd post....the concept is based around stripping a double-gusseted briefcase down in form, but keeping the detail. No front, back, or side pockets like my other bags. I wanted the surfaces to be almost like a blank canvas, with the stitching and the detail in the leather to draw the eye. Black is actually one of the toughest leather 'colours' to look high quality. Cheaper stuff tends to look coated or plasticy, or uncomfortably matte. I used a stiffer calfskin from France. It has some incredible depth that I've never really seen in black leather, with just enough gloss and natural markings to make it stand out. The second photo should show best what I mean by that. Completely saddle-stitched by hand. The interior is lined in red lamb suede from France.

I've been working a lot more with some horsehide black CXL lately. Horsehide is absolutely fantastic to work with. I like the slight stiffness of the leather.

Made a new belt last night from 12 oz Wickett and Craig. Think I like this simple heavy belt
