Oh i have watched that.
I thought there would be a "long" version LOL.
Excellent work as always.
Enjoy wearing your belts on a weekly basis.
We do plan a couple of edits, a slightly longer one and a more arty. We shot on 16mm film though, so there physically isn't a huge amount of footage in the same way you can get when your shooting digital

Might shoot a briefcase one next, maybe

Hi Charlie, is there a Baker's leather that is close to burgundy?

Not really, in the Oak Bark full grain range we use anyway. The nearest would be some of the harness leather we use for the Scott, with is quite dark and has red overtones. Are you thinking belt, or somthing else?

Yes, very much looking for dark red though rather than a dark brown with red... have you ever combined the burgundy belts with an edging that isn't black? Say a darker burgundy, in the same style as the London Tan ones (which have mid brown edging). I'm not a huge fan of the black edged burgundies.

Yes, not at all a problem to do a custom edge colour. Mid brown works, or we could even do a burnished dark red with Burgundy?

I think the leather colour itself is probably the hardest bit. How does the Sedgwick Burgundy strike you?

Burnished dark red sounds great, you wouldn't happen to have any photos of it with the burgundy?

i don’t think we have, we’re a bit snowed in at the moment but I’ll take one when we can get back to the workshop!

Very much looking forward to a briefcase film, Charlie, it will be an award winner! I would like to see a saddle stitch or 2 and this film will be the perfect venue.

In the interim, here you go!

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
