    They look very nice, will get my first belt from you soon to so looking forward to that. But with the wallets keep in mind that some people might have a problem with the pigskin lining for religious reasons. So it might be worth making one with a different lining as well.

    Good point and one I hadn't thought of I confess so thank you. The pigskin lining is nice, really I used it because its what was to hand though, I think the production versions all have calf or goat linings. Goat has a really attractive grain pattern and is a traditional lining material because you can skive it down to thin the seam areas without it loosing strength or shape, I sourced some the other day so will post some photos in due course

    Actually, Ive just looked again at the pigskin. Its really nice and is undyed but beautifully finished so shows the true character of the leather which is a recuring theme for our work, I hate leather that looks like plastic. We will offer the natural pigskin as an option I think, as well as the goat and calf so lots of choices

    I'll post more photos over the next few days

    Absolutely - choice is completely the point of what we do. We may group things together on the website to make it easier to buy things but ultimately you can configure any detail you want of anything you buy from us, as long as we can do what you want well. Everything we sell is made specifically for its owner so little things like thread colour, hole placement, distribution and number for belts, edge colours etc etc are all playable with if people want to and mean you can make something thats unique to you and hopefully works and looks exactly like you want it to.

    Fairly shortly, but not before September - we're busy getting orders made so we can have a few days off for our wedding! There will be some more prototypes made in the meantime though and Ill post photos as we make them

    Received my Scott Oak Bark the other day. I have to say, this is one epic piece of leather. This thing will be around for longer than I will! Really remarkable workmanship too - awesome job Charlie.

    Thanks all for the kind words and congratulations - all much appreciated!

    To answer the question re exotics, we have a source of Croc, Lizard and Ostrich lined up for small leather goods (wallets/watchsraps) in due course once we have the designs sorted. They'll be a little longer than the calf versions though

    Received my Australian Nut West End a couple of weeks ago, thought I'd drop by this thread to compliment you on the stellar craftsmanship. The belt is beautiful. And, of course, major congrats on the upcoming wedding!

    Glad you like the belt!

    Thats quite a tricky colour, Id say its somewhere between Aus Nut and Dark Havana and its think you'll have judge wether you'd prefer the belt to be too light or too dark if you go for one of our belts. If it where me Id go for Aus Nut I think. Very happy to send samples if you want to take a look first hand though - a samples beats an opinion based on photos!

    Hi everybody,

    Would Burgundy or Australian Nut go with both of these shoes? Or should I just get two belts?

    I can't decide if the burgundy would be to red for the monks or the Australian nut to brown for the loafers.

    Opinions?

    Hi Charlie/Dawn

    I was wondering if you by chance make custom made wallets? I have one which is a relatively simple design - and was hoping you could recreate it if I were to send you photos/dimensions.

    Regards
    Jason
