I'm thinking of arranging an SF dinner sometime soon, as our last big get-together was in October last year, but in the interim I thought that it might be nice to catch up for a chat and a drink or two.
Please let me know what you think.

Gentlemen,

Unfortunately, something has come up and I can't do this Thursday.

How do people feel about Elvish's suggestion of meeting up next Friday (which will be 23 November) for lunch or for a coffee?

We can then aim to hammer out some details for drinks or dinner in early December, if people happen to be free.

Hah you know I actually checked this just before - no official Alden store in CO though! If I have some time in LA maybe ill try and go there. There might be other Alden stockists in CO I guess.

Leather Soul have a store in Beverly Hills. If you had time, you could head there from LA.

Man, LA is the pits. Such a soulless place.

I was under the impression that there are no 'official' Alden stores just different levels of retailers.

Personally I thought Leather Soul was overrated, but that was after I visited places like Cable Car Clothiers in SF.

I have let Lotuff know and they are sending me their leather elixir which apparently "should greatly help blending the dye stains with the natural patina of the leather."

 

 

400

 

These are watermarks right? thats normal for a natural tanned leather... not a fault of the bag, rather a misunderstanding of the user ... if you want to play the patina game this is what happens.

 

The bag will darken over time and eventually you wont even notice them.

 

Im a big il bisonte fan and ive had the odd water marks too 

 

EDIT: please verify - these are watermarks? the leather doesnt look coloured, rather its treated with an oil

On leather goods, does anyone have any recommendations of brands/stores to look at for a decent leather folio? Just looking for something to hold a note pad and a couple of A4 reports.

No specified price range at the moment, just trying to get an idea of what is out there.

I've never been to either. Would love to go to CCC in SF. Man, I loved SF.

Well, I'm in Brisbane, but you Melburnians should organise something, too.

We should attempt to have simultaneous get-togethers in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne - sort of like sartorial flashmobs in each city!

Me too, went to the one in Honolulu a few years back (which has since moved I think). Lot's of nice shoes, but no um soul.... (pun intended)

Service was very average in-store but then again, I'm not a japanese businessman so not their walk in target demo.
