    That's the new version, not the underwater harvest?

    Yes - a new version of that leather that we call Cuir De Russie. Its specifically not leather from the Metta Catherina, but the very best of all the leathers that have tried to recapture the recipe lost in the Russian revolution. We, along with nearly everyone else, have run out of the last of the stocks of the Metta Catherina leather now. This leather doesnt have the back story of being 230 years old, but equally doesnt have the technical issues of being 230 years old and is a much better leather as a result. In all other aspects its indistinguishable to the extent Id advise even more caution than usual buying Metta Catherina based products!

    Price wise, is this less than the Baranil/ barenia?

    Fraid not! Its our most expensive non exotic leather, so a supplement of £75 over and above Baranil

    Can you tell me what colors of Lin cable you have in the heavier weights (I was hoping for heavier than medium, so I guess medium heavy and heavy)?

    I wanted to get the baker russett with a heavier royal blue if its available.

    I'll take a look tomorrow, but off handed I think mostly the earth tones + Ecru, I suspect not the RB. Will check though! We do have a medium blue linen that is a similar shade to the Royal Blue, and we may also have that shade in Tiger thread though

    Pics of the tiger and linen would be great if you have them, thanks!

    'Fraid we havent got any of the heavier Lin Cable in the Royal as I though. Heres a quick iPhone photo of the Linen and Tiger threads though, Tiger to the left. The Tiger is available in this colour in both .6 and .8mm, the .8 is really quite substantial

    What do you think of the Lin compared to the tiger and linen?

    You don't plan on getting the medium heavy or heavy in Royal Blue by chance do you?

    My new Demascus buckle is on the left, old one on the right. This has got to be my absolute favorite belt. I wear it almost everyday and I cant wait to incorporate the new one into my rotation. The color looks similar but the new one is a hair darker and matches the contrast stitching on the denim perfectly.
