    So I just received my wallet and belts from Scott (unlucky) today. Included in the wallet was this nifty little business card advertising an "Organize Custom Leather." It appears that unlucky has started his own business complete with cards and a website (still under construction). Considering the decision to remove the previous thread from the B&S forum, I'm not sure if it would be kosher to throw out the website, but pm me and I'll give you the web address and Scott's email.

    I've gotten my dark brown messanger from unlucky. It's very nice and sturdily built; I can't wait to break it in[​IMG]

    Please to post pics [​IMG]

    i've been in touch with him. ordered my belt on thursday and he shipped it out monday. Maybe there's a problem with the emails or something. might be going to spam.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Unlucky made this belt for me. He refused to let me pay for it before i'd seen pictures after he'd made it. I first emailed him thursday week ago. It was done and sent by monday last week. Arrived in New Zealand yesterday. It's a very simple belt. No stitching anywhere (i didn't ask for it), so it would've been a pretty easy make for him. It came in a natural colour, which was lighter than the above pictures, with a sort of pinkish tinge. I applied some leather conditioner, which darkened it a bit and turned it that orangey colour which goes really well with denim. I imagine it will darken further over time. edit: pictures cropped

    After a short delay, here are the pictures of the Skull repro wallet and IH repro belt that Scott made for me. The wallet images are after about a week's worth of wear and the belt image is the one that Scott sent me.

    Just to reiterate what everyone has already said, Scott offers a superior product at an unbeatable price. Furthermore, he is highly responsive to the customer and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Shop with confidence.

    thats cool. so on the belt if you wanted to make any adjustments you could easily do it yourself by just punching holes and trimming the excess?

    Yes and no, the thickness of my belt will make it pretty difficult for me to punch new holes; however, if you look at the piece that the buckle is connected to, you'll notice that it's an independent strip of leather attacked by rivets. this allows you to move it one direction or the other depending on whether you want it to be longer or shorter. You'd also be able to punch new holes on the buckle side so that you could lengthen/shorten the belt while retaining uniform looking holes on the other end. Scott will go through all of this with you if you decide you want them, as well as make the belt to your specifications.
