post #2521 of 2580

Just found these guys online. Haven't been able to find much in the ways of reviews re: durability, etc. Anyone have any experience with them?

Cross posting from a new Chester Mox Appreciation thread I just made: a new bespoke folio I recently received from the company. Made from black boxcalf for the exterior, then a combination of Rusticalf and Alcantara "suede" for the lining. Fully hand saddle stitched.

15% OFF CODE just for the Styleforum members as promised on all items, but only - one time - valid until end of July.

Thanks for the discount code, wished I have made my purchase later instead of earlier.
That said, just receive my flapover case last week and here's the obligatory shot of the briefcase:

Nice match! Would love to see more photos, if you got any, of the briefcase in proportion to the figure/shoulder .. 

I will be ordering a Folio briefcase for a start just to feel the taste of the work/leather quality .. His style and work appears to be really good with competitive prices considering he's using bridle leather + SF discount + weak pound it should be no brainer ..

Yes any pictures of proportion would be helpful. The measurements on their website may be wrong as whenever I convert the cm to inches it would mean all their satchels and briefcases are the size of a small purse.

The flapover brief looks to be listed at about the right size, and so does the portfolio.

Around the 15/16" x 11" range, yes?

38cm is 15", thats usually a good reference when looking at cases to quickly convert to imperial your head.

you're right. i'm looking at the satchel which is at 25cm tall, so about 10 inches.

Good eye! This is a vegetable tanned leather from Conceria Walpier in Italy. It is fantastic, and currently my favorite leather to use. It really works well in cases and small leather goods. 

 

Also, the colors that Walpier can produce are amazing, even the greys and pastels are very natural looking.
