    Any thing specific I should ask for when it comes to inside the bag? Scott says the typical bag has the initial opening and one additional pocket. Wondering if there is anything else I should ask for in addition.

    Anyone?

    And for the belt, do you guys think I should go with something that'll match the majority of my shoes (e.g. my AE wingtips and loafers are chili), or just go for the natural color (since I think it looks great with denim)?

    Been in contact with Scott. I'm unsure if I should ask him to slant the flap on the messenger bag as it is pictured a few pages ago, or have the flap run straight across. What do you guys think looks better?

    I got a very similar one from b/s in the mail this week! Glad to finally have a belt I'm totally happy with.

    how much did he quote you on the bag? the slant flap is more awesome.

    $225, but that's including two internal pockets (plus another small one for pens), one external pocket, and a handle. Hopefully he doesn't mind me quoting the price on here.

    So what are you doing with the interior pockets? I'm trying to envision but having problems. Sounds intriguing!

    They should be small (or should I say thin) pockets. I could use them to separate notebooks and the like from the rest of my stuff (say a laptop and books).

    Hmm. Interesting. How big is this bag going to be? I'm really interested and may get something similar. I've been looking for a good medium-large-type bag for a while...

    Someone wanted me to post a fit with my messenger, so I thought I'd throw it in here. I didn't even leave the house today (>90, far too hot to be outside) so I just threw on a pair of jeans and took it in the mirror [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That looks pretty amazing KitAkira. I made my order the other day. I'll post the pictures Scott sends me when I get them.

    [​IMG] I present to you, exhibits A and B. A - underside horsehide pre-conditioning. B - underside horsehide post-conditioning. Been meaning to do this for a while since the leather looked so dry, just took a bit of Saphir shoe cream and applied it with my finger lol. Darkened the other side from an orange-brown to a darker chestnut color, still nice and uneven so it's not like a stain.

    Can't find the thread to contact unlucky.

    How does one get in touch with him to commission a belt?

    Here are the belt and bag Scott made for me. They should be in the mail soon and hopefully I'll post some more pics later. They look excellent in the pictures, so I can't wait to see them in person. [​IMG] [​IMG]
