Portland Street Leather

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Has anybody ordered from Portland Street Leather? I'm interested in getting a wallet and want to check if anybody has any experiences with him? I tried Hughes Low but I'm not able to get a response from him and have read the same here.

Some of his work: http://portlandstreet.tumblr.com/

I've ordered a ready-made credit-card wallet from Portland St Leather, and it is excellent.

I'm intending to order an MTO wallet and possibly a key wallet in the near future, although I'm unsure as to whether I should choose sharkskin, ostrich or crocodile. The croc does cost more, of course.

When I contacted Gavin, he did comment that he hadn't been updating the blog much lately as he'd been so busy with commissions.

Gavin was very prompt in responding to e-mails and very helpful in discussing various options (hides, styles of wallets, pricing and so on).

Yes, you can still use that address. 

 

I've bought a couple of things from Portland St Leather previously and so I e-mailed Gavin (Luk-cha) a while back to ask about getting something else. He wrote back to let me know that he's too busy to run Portland St Leather anymore, so he's given it up for the time being. However, he does have some small leather goods left so if you e-mail him, when he has a chance in a few weeks' time, he might be able to let you know what's left over. Unfortunately, though, he's not doing made-to-order wallets and leather goods anymore.
