    That looks great! You've inspired me to start using my fountain pen again.

    I was inspired to get my wallet after reading this epic. The leather for Christian's wallet is also used by Hermes [​IMG]

    Thanks Gez, though this one is actually the rollerball version - I've been paranoid about fountain pens in pockets since one leaked on me many years ago, so the rollerball is a nice compromise for carrying around while my fountain pen stays on my desk for signing big deals, autographing memorabilia and forging cheques.


    Shhh! We cannot talk about that at this time.

    Here are two of mine:


    Hiking sneakers (these are awesome):

    Just out of the box, hiking and woven sneakers (not even sure if I'm allowed to tell you guys about these :p):

    I also have the olive/white aperture sneaker. Not sure sizing wise about that one, but I already exchanged sizes once and I don't want to impose more (switched from 45 to 45.5, shoud've gone 46). They might stretch enough tho, have to try them again. Only tried them on real quick, and they've been shelved on account of winter.

    On a scale of one to walking on clouds while several well-trained baby pandas massage your feet, how comfortable are those suede apertures?

    Haha! :D They're a teeny bit snugger than the hiking sneakers, but still awesomely comfortable to walk in. Once I break them in they will no doubt be as you describe. The hiking sneaker fit perfectly day 1.
