It is the work of the devil, looks like you figured out something though!

This is 14spi on .8mm calf from the left handed iron, vs 10spi on my phone case, ruler in the foreground for comparison
 

Charlie, you're the man - that's something I that's hard to find a picture of these days. Also, well done! You're stitching looks very tidy on the back.

Porn thread / thread porn ... same thing :satisfied: 

 

 

You're briefcase looks nice. I like the creasing on the strap keeps!

Thats the front! I stitched it back to front to reverse the direction of the iron. Its not massively tidy but the threads really to heavy which spoils it. An exercise in showing it can be done rather than perfectionism!

It's very tidy for what it is! As far as thinner threads go, you could always make you're own, thinner linen thread from a thicker piece. I'm no expert in that particular domain, I've only read about it.

Yes, you can make linen thread, though thats nearly as arcane as 14spi nowadays!

Hi all - I don't mean to break the continuity of this current conversation on threads and psi, but not sure how else to bring up this question. If there is an alternate forum that is more appropriate, I'm more than happy to move this query:

 

I'm going to law school and my boss wants to buy me a nice briefcase to use for summer internships and for my future career. Budget of $600 and I've settled on chestnut as my preferred color. I personally love the look of the Frank Clegg Commuter Briefcase, but it's out of budget right now. Plan to use the briefcase regularly with a suit and it needs to have a carry strap; the Saddleback bags are too casual for my taste.

 

Looking at these two bags right now:

http://www.travelteq.com/en/bags/messenger-soft-leather.html

https://www.linjer.co/products/soft-briefcase-cognac

 

Which do you think looks more clean and professional - and more importantly, will last me for a long time in the sartorial sense?

 

I've gotten wildly differing opinions from people so I'm asking styleforum now. Advance apologies if a similar question has been asked before - I've been reading each page of this massive thread and am up to page 110.

 

I'm also open to other options in the same price range! Thanks in advance.

The Linjer looks dressier. For use with suits, I would go with that.

The conversation on stitching is peripheral to the thread about briefcases - its us who have broken the continuity really, though its very much on topic for high end briefcases.!

I'd save up and go with Glaser Designs

Am I the only one who doesn't care for most of Glaser's briefcase designs? They have a couple that are not bad, but really most don't do anything for me.

Looks like his profile is back up, but I don't see anything listed for sale.

Great stuff there! Just curious how do you compare your equus leather wallets against chester mox in terms of SPI? nest.gif hehe...
