    Won't blow your cover, but can't wait for those to show up.

    He means you should let us know what you've got brewing so that we don't blow all our money on inferior shit beforehand, you tease ;)

    Since I recently got my Oak Hatch grain arran with black stitching and you guys are considering
    doing the same for the Hove, I snapped a little iphone pic under the flourescent light
    at work for you if you want to see how it looks like up close :)

    Looks fantastic to me. Can I bother you with a fit pic just to see how the leather is holding up?

    We are also still putting together the x6 needed for this order. So if anyone wants in, let me know.

    Sure, np :)
    4th wear, so I dont know if I can draw any conclusions yet about holding up.
    They look fine to me. The leather is really good.
    Also, it looks alot worse on photo than irl cause of the high reflections in the non-creased areas
    vs the no-reflections in the creases which plays tricks on your eyes.
    Comparing the profile vs the top-view should give you an idea.

    Really, is this something new? Are different widths possible?

    No, it's an old policy. EG has 6, G&G has 5. But it has to be the exact same widths.

    Those look great, i am familiar with the Arran, so i can say the same amount of wrinkles show up on the calf leather :)

    Thank you for humoring me :fistbump:
