what needs restoring? the patina looks great!

Now that it has come in, I've got a better. answer. I called Tanner Krolle and spoke with a very courteous representative who I took pictures for and put them up on my flickr so that he could give me a quote on the restoration costs. You can see them here. Overall the leather is very dry and I'm trying not to open and close it too much. The lining is okay, but most likely needs to be replaced. The straps are starting to crack and should probably be replaced. I hope that it's serviceable because the thing is fucking awesome. Was told on the phone though that replacing the lining may get expensive because it's sewn into the bag, and so the whole thing will need to be unswen, lining replaced, and then resewn. I'll see what they say.

Oh, and because it's this thread, where pics are king:

Thanks. There's a saddlery shop near my office as well (What? It's Texas.) that I thought about checking out for stuff to do some interim cleaning with.
post #13749 of 14685
That stuff is great for DIY. However, if you are strongly in favor or contracting the restoration out to a third party, I would hold off on doing anything yourself as it may impede their work. Good luck.

Good advice. The plan is then to wait for the manufacturer to get back to me.

I reside nearby. had no idea this area was able to produce another SFer, considering our demographics and laid back lifestyle.

And of course, congratulations is in order!

A little bit of a splurge recently. I declared some of these purchases in the past weeks and never posted any photos, others of these are new and unmentioned.


The Castangia shirts (solid blue and white in center) are incredible and handmade (you can see the pick stitching in the shoulders) and the Etons (all of the rest) fit so perfectly! The blue/white POW is a DNA line that I never wanted to take off once wearing.  Knitted ties by Eton as well and the other is a David Donahue. The suits are by Trussini, the nailhead jacket is a cashmere unlined and the navy is a 180s wool natural craftsmanship by BB. The suede monks are Church's. Braces by Albert Thurston for Udeshi and the scarf is a St. Andrews cross by Udeshi as well. The belt is a moc-croc pressed leather.
