Rather like a swan, lots of effort underneath but quite serene looking! To be fair thats the only possible resemblance I have with a swan!

Going back to having a greater selection of leather types, these are some leather samples I got earlier - again rubbish iPhone photos but some lovely quality Italian Calf available in lots of colours overlayed with some rather special Russian grained calf from Horween

I guess I will just continue to carry two belts then.

(like the black and brown lined and raised belts that I just ordered.)

Much nicer to have two lovely things than one average one anyway :-)

I think under the rules of StyleForum any maths that allows you to have more nice things is correct!

Another update of my Russet Bakers Bridle belt. It's been about a month since delivery and I've been giving it a bit of sun this week.

The first image shows the evolution compared to a virgin piece of the same type of leather.













I love both my Equus belts so much that I decided to order another one this past week. I went with a 1.25" West End in Aus Nut and stainless buckle.

Its going a lovely colour - you cant beat the way natural veg tan, particularily oak bark tanned, ages. The colour it goes has never been recreated in any dye Ive seen

Thank you as ever (and to every one else as well) for the ongoing custom, we couldnt do it with out you guys and we appreciate it.

Wow. Very interesting colour. I have a few natural veg tanned products myself but they seem to age very differently. The colour is much duller, a mellow brown compared to the orangey-tan above. Does anyone have pictures of  a fully evolved Russet Bakers belt?

Mine is from the initial order and it looks pretty much like that.

There are quite a number kicking around so I'm sure people will have photos and hopefully will share. I dont think there is such a thing as fully evolved though, they'll keep on changing as long as they live, not as fast as when they are new but like any good veg tan they keep getting better over time.

If Mike from IndigoShrimp is about our collaboration on the Military Belt was popular and he might have some good pictures of the older belts

Not on the website, but absolutely can be done though. We cant get the buckles on the website in less than 20mm but we can either use one you already have or a Hirsch buckle. We need to completely revise the watch strap section and its photos, its doesnt show off what we can do very well as is..

Took a picture of my little collection. Both are about the same age (4 months) but the wallet (right) gets more use. The true colour is slightly darker than pictured and is an orangey-tan like patrick's belt (under sunlight). It's actually a really dull and muddled colour right now under artificial light tbh . At the bottom of them are equus leather samples (tan, russet bakers, hazel, bakers oak brown, oxford tan). I'd love to see how they age compared to equus bridle russet bakers
