I like the colours, and I've heard good things bout Hermann Oak leather, but the details and finishing on these look like they could use improvement, especially for $600. I do like the rivet detailing on the sides, both in terms of placement and colour.
I don't like the rivets. I think it goes too far to the point of being tacky. They should be a nice extra touch, not a feature. The branding is a bit loud for my tastes too.
10-4. These are basically prototypes, still in finishing stages.....I tend to focus more on lifelong durability and over-engineered designs then I do details and as you said, finishing. The price could be consider prototype as well, Although, I don't make it a practice buying the lower end materials, I'm always investing top dollar into leather I use for products.....which is why only Top Grade #A hides from Hermann Oak are chosen. I can't even build 2 complete bags from one entire side of cowhide.....its crazy, but worth it in my opinion. The cut of this leather is palpable. Tough bags for sure. Thank you for posting.....
stitching is off in the 3rd pic.
Understood, but I haven't made myself clear in original post.....these are prototypes. I'm still in the final design phase. In fact, I built these bags on a machine that I shouldnt even be using for this type of product.....by all means....there could be a machine specialized for every product. Agreed the stitching is off the backside of that bag, but there is no guide assembly able to be installed on the machine for this size product.....
Basically, I'm just looking for feedback regarding the bag SIZE, SHAPE, and overall FEATURES such as the rivets (which happen to be extremely hard to find solid brass, black oxided rivets, high dollar as far as rivet go), stress point reinforments, buckles, colors, etc.
Thanks for the feedback everyone!
Is this your site? The bags appear to be available for purchase, alongside the same photos you've posted in this thread, and there's no mention of prototypes there . I'm not sure why you'd be looking for feedback on things like stress point reinforcement for a product you're currently offering for sale and marketing as a quality, finished product.
That's a tuff question.
Asks for feedback.
"That's not the criticism I wanted!"
Ugly as sin
