It'll be just the same as our other Sedgwick leather, 3 1/2 - 4mm, just in a colour mid way between Hazel and Aus Nut. I hope we'll have it in the next couple of weeks, but it probably wont be on the website straight away, we'll need to take some photos etc. Shouldnt take long though!

Generally yes, their bridle leather is around 4 1/2mm and the harness is around 5mm.

Charlie, just wondering if you're still considering offering belts in gator,ostrich, or other exotics. The watch straps look so good, I'm sure the belts would be fantastic.

Glad you like them! We're definitely planning to offer belts in all the exotics. We haven't started work on the prototypes yet, now we have the supply of leather sorted we're concentrating on watch straps, wallets and bags in them first, but we'll definitely get there

Hi All,

Speaking of exotics, heres some prototyping we've just finished. The brown bag in the last photo is the basis of the design and was my Great Grandfathers. 100% hand stitched as ever.

Thank you Lance, thats kind of you to say :-)

In some aspects Ostrich horrifies me, its pretty much as in your face as possible that its an exotic, but actually the colour, feel, grain and ageing abilities are such that the more we work with it the more I love it. Maybe not a leather for everyone but if you love it you really really love it I think. I can see this bag being beautiful in a dark Alligator though, maybe next version..

Hi Guys,

Sorry we havent done a great job keeping the thread updated recently! Run of our feet post Christmas but we've had some interesting work to do over the last little while

Here's a briefcase strap we've made for a member here to replace an existing one that broke, cant remember the origin of the case but not one from anyone here! Only quick snapshots before it went in the post.





This is a lovely fixed bar Rolex we mad a strap for for a good customer of ours. With fixed bar watches the strap has to be made around the watch which is always fiddly but very clean look when its done. This is thin, flat black Ostrich leg, cut to use the small scales only. The original strap is long gone but this is quite in keeping I think








Lastly, little heads up, we have a 12% coupon active untill midnight tonight! The coupon is Jan12

Charlie
