    Made by La Vera. The shortness of the buttonhole is very much their thing, having seen your coats I'm sure it's not to your taste. You are right though, the work on this buttonhole is a bit dodgy.

    Regardless of the buttonhole, the texture of the fabric looks great. Is it linen or something like a cotton/hemp blend?

    Ethandesu has a few new pics of Carmina's on his blog (don't see suede wholecuts though).

    I'm sure if you e-mail The Armoury they would send you pics.

    Mark, do you have photos showing the inside of the small Ludwig Reiter briefcase? I asked you this before, but I deleted the PM you sent me with the photos [​IMG]

    I really like size and the dark brown one looks great -- I'm contemplating a purchase this summer.

    Regarding the double monks, we actually may have more in sooner that we expected, probably by the end of the month. Will keep the thread posted!

    nice suit, don't think i've seen u post it before. Deets?

    Actually, it's one of my older ones, probably three years old. I had it made up in an old bolt of wool/polyester from the 70s by Scabal. They still do a similar book called the Caravelle. Say what you want about wool/poly but in certain situations and qualities, it can be an excellent fabric.

    Regardless of the buttonhole, the texture of the fabric looks great. Is it linen or something like a cotton/hemp blend?

    I had a look and found the old photos for the large Ludwig but not the smaller one. I'll have Ethan snap a few photos for you.

    yfyf, I don't suppose you have some pictures of the Ro Bags, particularly on how they are divided internally?

    Thanks!

    Here's a shout out for the Ro X Armoury bags. I have the Medium Bag in Black. Fantastic quality for the price. The interior of the bag is finished really nicely. I wish it came in Brown, as I'd happily buy a second one.

    Thanks for the photos Mark!

    Alan posted photos a while ago. I really like this bag as well, wish it came in dark brown. These bags (small/medium) are the classier versions of the forum favourite Filson 256/257. A medium would be perfect for my needs. Does the cognac color darken with time, Mark?
    Medium Bag comes in Black & Cognac: Price: 5600 HKD Dimensions: 39cmx30cmx6cm Made of Italian bridle leather and lined w/ pigskin Extra photo: [​IMG] Large Bag comes in Black & Cognac as well, slightly longer and also wider. At this size, we decided to add a strap for a weightier load: Dimensions: 42cmx30cmx9cm [​IMG] [​IMG] The interior of both are similar, lined w/ pigskin and compartment under RoxArmoury flap is padded on both sides for protection of laptop. Interior shot! [​IMG]

    For Srivats, an internal pic of the smallest brown Ludwig Reiter bag. A simple, single compartment, so not that much to see really!
