Can you share the link Charlie? I can't seem to find it.
Congrats! I'm a big equus fan - I have four and will be in the market for 2-3 more once I have a permanent address again to ship to. Regarding the thread colour, it's really something that there for you individually but not something that anyone else can actually see when you're wearing it. I've done Baker's Aus Nut/green thread, Sedgwick Oxford Tan/red thread, Sedgwick black/blue thread, and BRG/black thread. I like looking at each of the combos before I put them on but they're not visible after the belt is buckled.
That Mayfair buckle looks great. Will it also be available in solid metals? I'd prefer to avoid something with plating.
Also, I'm interested in possibly ordering a watch strap. How does the Barenia leather compare to the Sedgwick/Bakers (I have samples of both.) in color, durability and suppleness?
Finally have the latest Equus addition in my hands, took a bit longer than expected but as usual great product, friendly service and looking forward to wearing it :).
I didn't have any samples to go off just took a punt and think it worked out to be a pretty good match.
..now to cross fingers and wait for an oxblood run one day, although that Australian nut is tempting..
