post #2176 of 2179
Sorry out of town bags are 100% leather including stiffeners which are veg. Tan leather, interiors are suede lined these are in a rust suede. I make the handles of stacked leather and the steel frames are made in house, everything is personally crafted by myself and completely hand stitched. Each bag is a one of a kind no duplicates, also will do bespoke for whoever wants something special I have another 9 bags in the works and will be ready in about three weeks including Blue, Burgandy brown and cognac pebbled, natural glove leather slow pit tanned and chocolate gator print. Bags in the process are still customizable with thread and edge color as well as lining choice. Locks available in polished brass and antique brass all are solid brass. PM me and I will send you pics

Regarding the Factory Shop we spoke about several pages ago ..

I decided to contact their London Store and ask if they could provide me a contact details with their Cambridge FS that used to sell Rejects, and here's the reply:


Dear Sir,

 
We no longer have a factory shop however we are planning to open a new retail shop in Cambridge opening hopefully in September 2015 if that will be of interest.
 
Kind regards,
 
Susan

Who likes detailed reviews of semi-bespoke items? Well, buckle up then. This is long, but there is a short blurb at the top to summarize 

 

Maker: Henry Tomkins Leather

Website: htleathers.co.uk

Style: Briefcase Lite with many modifications

Price: 250 GBP (including 45 GBP for shipping)

Leather: Veg Tanned leathe, color option light brown)

Lead time: 8 weeks (usually 4, he had a backlog)

 

The Result: EXCELLENT. Would highly recommend, few small attention to detail points, but all in all amazing bag for the price.

 

More detail:

 

First off, working with Henry is wonderful. he is an extremely nice man, knowledgeable in his craft and willing to work with you on his bags. His bags can be customized in a number of ways, all of which he is willing to design piece by piece with you. 

 

Ordering is really easy, his website is well designed with clear instructions. he is responsive to e-mails and phone calls. He lists a number of pricing options for extras on his website and will clearly outline what other things will cost as you design them. There are no surprises.

 

I received the bag today, here are some pictures of details:

 

Luckily I had my trusty cat helping me make sure the box was completely empty

 

The Bag came nicely wrapped in corrugated paper, well protected, no damage during shipping

The cat is still checking the box, the bag on the otherhand looked damned amazing

 

You can see a small cut in the upper piece of leather, it was filled and it seems to be the only one like it on the bag. not noticeable, doesn't affect the use of the bag. The rivets are sturdy and seem like they will last a long time

With the flap closed in the lowest position

 

 

 

 

This is the standard pocket divider that all of his bags have. Two pens, a card holder and a slot pocket

 

he has an option for a zippred back pouch, however I wanted a cleaner look, so I went for this newspaper slot instead. This was an expensive option, but worth it in my mind (25 GBP for the zippered pouch option + 10 GBP for the newspaper design instead of a zipper)

 

Front of the bag flat

 

This set of interior dividers was a 25GBP option. gusseted pockets, a very nice catch all for everything. The lanyard clip is for keys, a very nice option that was free.

 

Another shot of the gusseted pouches

 

 

 

Overall, I love the bag. It is going to lst a very long time and  will age amazingly I am sure. The leather is softer than I expected, i thought the side gussets would be stiffer, but it is a really nice feel to it. 

 

Any Questions, feel free to ask!

 

Marc
