Hi All,

Weve had various newcoming leathers this week, mostly for small leathergoods, watch straps and wallets

The first of the production Alligators. This is a glazed Dark Brown - beautiful skin. Other colours and finishes shortly!





Lovely Fench Goat for wallets. Vegetable tanned and fully aniline..

We havent quite sorted pricing because we havent totally established the cost of the CITES licencing. Within the EU is a bit easier but we need to apply for a licence per strap for any leaving Europe. Its doable but we want to make sure they are all completely legal so people dont have customs or resale problems. Id say around £250 per strap though as an estimate - very much still to be confirmed though!

Available now - The Alligator Watch Strap is live on the website.

http://www.equusleather.co.uk/watch-straps/alligator-watch-strap/alligator-watch-strap.html

Those who are Non-EU based unfortunately have to pay a small fee for a CITES permit for exporting - but it's less than what you save on VAT and of course you can still use your SF10% discount code with it too. We've tried to absorb some of the cost, but couldn't take the full hit.

Hope you like it - more colours to come, but no fixed date on those yet.

Charlie and Dawn,


This thread convinced me to try one of your belts for work (business casual w/ occasional suit and tie), and I just ordered one on Friday.  Went with standard 1.25" West End in Dark Havanna.  I know I missed the deadline for Xmas delivery to the U.S.A., but can you give me an approximate ship date?

Great, thank you for the order :-)

If you drop me a PM with your details and I'll give you an idea of date

Glad you like it! Im looking forward to getting some photos of the end results! It's principally for watch straps but I think the new wallet designs will look great in it too as well

Just received my No. 18 Rusticalf with a Palladium Mayfair Buckle. Thanks very much Charlie & Dawn!
Needless to say, cell phone pictures do it no justice.

With a few of its siblings..

Good photos! The Rusticalf is No 18 with Beige Lin Cable which is a really good combination I think.

Really pleased you like it :-)

Hi Charlie!
Love it..but in retrospect I should have stuck to the earlier sizing! LOL

A little off topic, I was wearing my Oak Brown Bakers while working on a car emergency and it got sweat soaked in parts (pardon the explicit details). So I washed the whole thing with fresh water and left it to dry, naturally. Gave it Reno and JW Sedgewick balm after.
However, the stains haven't all gone, especially in the area of the holes, and it now looks very "patchily rugged" (not my intention)...what can I do to salvage it, Charlie?

The leather wont have taken any harm, and the marks will come out with time. Water or sweat marks are quite trick things in a mid brown leather, my experience is you cant easily remove them, but you can help them to merge the in to the leather as general patinae. What youve done so far is sensible, though the soaking in water is quite brave! I take it its the top belt in the photo? If so I think it still looks quite dry - maybe more leather feed or probably better yet Renovature, but above all time and wearing. I suspect the patchiness around the holes might be the actual holes themselves, as in the water or feed has penetrated more via the holes than in surrounding areas? That should even out over time. If you want to send me detailed photos I'll give you a better opinion though, or by all means send the belt over to us and we'll see what we can do for it. Bridle leather is tough, its designed for use like this, the appearance will be changed maybe but it certainly should be salvageable
