Looks great - congrats. Is the color London Tan, or something a bit more yellow-ish?
It is London tan but does appear more yellowish in some pictures.
Simon sent me some outdoor pictures of the completed bag today which is now in the hands of DHL:
Goddamn. That's spectacular.
That is really beautiful.
It is a nice feeling when your vision turns out exactly the way you envisioned it--or better. I hope I have not ruined myself to OTR products.
That's a beautiful purse. My wife would love it.
Does your wife have an Adams apple?
When it shows up, take some white-balanced pictures for us, so we can see the true color.
Of course he does.
This must be the bag to end all discussions on strap bags. At this price I'm sure there cannot be a better deal anywhere.
Very pretty bag, looking forward to the in-person review and pics!
Off the back of Patek's amazing looking case - I've placed an order with Simon.
I'm fortunate enough to own a SAB Westminster case in London Tan with full wraparound straps, so will have a pretty solid benchmark to compare it against.
To provide something a little different to the SAB, I've ordered a short strapped briefcase in Sedgwick Dark Havana bridle leather. 3 compartments (with the centre compartment a little larger than the others to accomodate bulky items). Full size rear pocket. Chrome plated brass hardware. Shoulder strap,
Here's a sample of the Dark Havana leather. I was expecting something near black based on Sedgwick's website, but the sample is just the shade of brown I was after:
And a selection of chrome locks to choose from:
Hopefully will be completed by the end of January - will keep this thread updated with pics (that Simon is kind enough to send you as your order progresses).
Looks like it will be an amazing bag. I debated between tan and Havana so interested in seeing the outcome.
My bag was stuck in customs over the holiday but I should be receiving or today. Too bad my camera broke over the holiday.
