    I've only made one messenger brief, it was my first bag and I've used it as my daily bag for a year and half now, took a while for the leather to lose some of it's firmness. 6oz veg tanned latigo 15" across as seen below.

    Early Christmas gift from my gf - she got me a purple caiman crocodile hide which I had been drooling over and I made a clutch out of it (yes for my personal use).

    It's lined with a thin cow-hide.

    I have one of Scott Willis' wallets that I want to sell. It is a pretty basic cowhide wallet and is really nice but i need something that holds more cards. I am probably breaking forum rules by posting this but my other account 99999jj is frozen for some reason so i had to set this new account up and it wont let me post this on the classifieds. I would be selling it for 1/2 price. It was used for about 2 weeks and has some natural darkening in and aging. Could send recent pics if anyone is interested. His work is great. If the moderator can reset my other password I will post in the classified section!

    Scott doesn't slick the edges? Or you asked for it to be that way?

    Anyone have pics of their horsehide belts or bags that are nicely beat up? Would like to see the difference in patina (if any) between cowhide and horsehide.

    Thoughts on the shade of brown belt that would work best with this buckle?

    Had originally planned to go with a very light tan, but now thinking about a more traditional dark brown, not sure how it would jibe though.

    After scouring the internet a pair of suspenders similar to the ones above, I can't find a single option
    I just want some simple, slim, brown-leather, button suspenders with brass details.
    Can anyone in this thread help me find someone who can recreate these? For an adult, obviously~

    Context has a nice set of leather braces for pre-order, but they are wider and have toggles rather than buttons. I would also be very interested in finding the pair that you seek.
