Random fashion thoughts - Part II (A New Hope) - Page 544

post #8146 of 13717
unsurprisingly the people waiting in line at the OC sample sale yesterday looked exactly as I would have imagined people who go to OC sample sales would have looked.

am i just out of touch because i don't live in nyc or do 90% of the people in williambsurg look ridiculous?

Recently bought this eyewear case and I'm tempted to darken it with conditioner, like I've done with belts, but also wondering if I should just let it age on its own for the next five years.


I had an Il Bisonte wallet to which I did nothing except carry normally, and it aged beautifully. And it didn't take anything like 5 years. I think it had a nice patina after a year or less.

Rodin made extensive use of urine to create patination.

It will definitely be less uniform, but I can't imagine the range of color tones differing between reg use and conditioner.

But using a conditioner wouldn't prevent your case from "developing" afterwards, so if there's something that you do that would impart a different pigment to the leather, you can get a tone you're happy with now, and still have an individualized look 5 years later.

His pocket square is actually a printout of this interview, which he unfolds and hands to anyone who asks about why he buttons only the bottom button
