Evolution of Leather Goods: Before and After Pictures

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.
