    As anyone heard from Eric @ corter recently? I purchased a belt and sent him a question via email and haven't really heard anything about either (got the paypal confirmation email though).

    I talked with him over the weekend. Please be patient with him, I am sure your belt is on the way.

    Eric did that special bracelet for Japan Relief fund and got pretty overwhelmed. He made something like 1500 bracelets and raised around $30,000 for Japan. Owesome job, but he is still playing catch up. Give him a bit more time.

    Anyone hear anything yet in the past couple weeks? It's been almost a month since I placed my order and emailed Eric a few days ago, I haven't heard anything.

    sort of confused about this thread: is there any real reason to go through the OP when ordering stuff from Eric? Not trying to shit on the OP, but it seems easier to go directly through the Corter website. Perhaps BlueOwl stocks stuff in Seattle, making delivery easier for people on the left coast?

    Well, judging from some of the responses in this thread, yeah, you can buy it already in stock or you can wait to see whether you'll get an email response in two months or so. That's one good reason.

    Last time I bought something, I got in like a week. Didn't even know Eric sold through other people...

    yeah I think eric is kind of backed up so if you buy it from a retailer you can get it right away...and the point of this thread is to discusses eric's products...

    The point is this thread is to get the Corter name out there. Eric is a great guy and we love his concept and that is why we are supporting his business. Whether you buy direct from Eric or buy from a retailer does not matter, just that fact that you are purchasing Corter will help him grow the business. A majority of Corter's goods are made to order, so there can be a lead time. Buying from a retailer who has them in stock can get you the product quicker, plus exchange is easier.

    As for what we do at Blue Owl, we do sell a lot of Corter goods to local customer who can see them in person, and we also sell a lot online and have shipped Corter items worldwide. Plus, we will be selling some exclusive items in the near future. We continue to support Eric because he makes a great product for a more than reasonable price.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask but how do you guys match your boots/sneakers with your natural tanned belts colorwise?

    Corter has updated the website with their new offerings. I'm usually not a fan of bi-folds but their new offerings are making me think I may want one especially with the snazzy lining they have incorporated into the wallet.
