I'm getting out of touch - I still put my wallet in my pocket!
Maybe this goes with the bare ankles look?
Man I had really hoped this wouldn't be something I'd get into, but that looks awesome. I imagine it's a relatively quick aging process for wallets due to what's known technically as "bum sweat".
Wouldn't aging something like a folio to look like this take quite a while?
Two ways it ages
1) via general handling - everyone has different level of sweat etc on their hands so the rate of darkening varies
2) UV - if you want to give it some early age, stick it in on the window sill and rotate it ... might take a month but it will get a few shades darker.
3) do not get raindrops/water etc on it - i dropped an oyster on that wallet in my first week - luckily i persevered and it blended it after a couple months:)
my wife and mother have a number of il bisonte items. My wife just uses hers without care and it develops the patina very fast. My mum keeps hers in a cloth bag after each use and shows very little age.
Wow thats sexy az!!!
Stuff it I'm getting one, (I've been carrying around stuff in a 'man-purse' I found at a thrift store
Another Barbour's 'lined up in my sights,' fingers crossed
LukCha is a bastard....I'm just jelly of his shoes :P
there is a leather repair guy at the top of the strand arcade. I forget his name but its where hunt leather send all their repairs. he's good, real good.
Cheers for that, will check them out. I've also had EyewearYouwear in Surry Hills recommended as another optometrist with a good range of frames.
I've seen a lot of high quality Ipad sleeves, and 13" laptop sleeves. I wanted something for my Nexus 7, but am unable to find anywhere like Berg and Berg that is offering a product.
Any Australian leather outfits worth a try? I was going to ask Temono (who I've got a relationship with), or Tailfeather, any other ideas?
