Finally got around to breaking out the camera. Belt is about 9 months old, with less months of actual wear. Made on Jan 22nd 2010. Click picture for full size.

Can someone provide me a picture of an aged Tanner Natural leather item compared to a Tan one?

I like how the Natural gets real dark brown, but I'm not sure how the Tan one turns out. Thanks.

Any recommendation for a thick, sturdy bi-fold wallet? I bought one from Leather Goods Connection a few months ago, and while it is a nice wallet, but it's begun to lose it's shape and really "bulge" in the middle. It's uncomfortable to sit on and leaves less-than-ideal fade in my jeans (I know, right). I don't want to spend more than 200 dollars.

Definitely great petina, Beatle!

Been using my own denim+leather long wallet for a awhile, and made another one for a project. Also took some pics to comparing darken leather.

Saddle soap can't stain leather, can it? I applied some to the lighter inside of a used wallet and the soap didn't really spread around, leaving dark spot where the soap was. It's been like this for about an hour and a half.

Riveted another D ring onto my belt. I know this is small, but you can see how the original one has aged compared to the new one.

It's around 18oz, 3/5" thick. Hides that thick are never totally even all the way through, that one I remember as cutting a bunch of normal belts then 3 strips at the end that were a bit thicker than anything I'd seen before

Spent the last few weeks slowly reading through this whole thread; time to start contributing. Weather hasn't been good enough to take pictures lately, so I'll start with some I took a few days ago as 'befores'.

Briefcase I thrifted for $6. Used, so not technically a before, but before for me.

Buffalo leather satchel, hand-stitched by artisan in Central Asia (bought through a fair trade merchant). Hasn't seen much wear because I never got around to punching new holes in the strap to make it short enough for me, but I think it's going to age really nicely.
