Well, all the Rentetsus sold out in a little over 12 hours, thank you everyone as ever. We'll try and get a few slipped in to our Damascus order for those that missed out!

To get really obsessive (what? Here on SF? ;-) , the creases on the elbows of an old motorcycle jacket are IMO the finest examples of leather ageing and conforming to the wearer.
Yes, I agree, leather that has conformed to you really can't be beaten. Riding boots that have had a few years use are my own favourite example I think. On an every day basis I love how my Barenia watch strap has formed to the shape of my wrist. Its completely smooth on your wrist and you only realise how much its conformed when you lie the strap flat.
