Here's my personal stash.

Two belts, two wallets, a bracelet, a bigger bag for my pipe and tobacco, and a smaller case for my Leatherman.

I should snap shots of my Frost River bag some day, I've make some nice modifications to it.

crosspost from evolution of leather goods thread

it's gotten a bit darker from then, but i decided to get a bigger wallet for cards and whatnot, so I'm using an obbigoods wallet now.

my red moon's kids wallet

around 5 months? 4?

New Obbigood custom wallet - an inch thinner in the width compared to a standard "short" wallet, a inch wider when compared to a Redmoon kid's wallet as seen just above.

Best part? Paid their RM Kid's wallet replica price ($75) when compared to the same wallet that's an inch bigger ($120).

Extremely happy with the purchase.

^^ great stuff!

Sansome's amazing gloves picture reminded me I'll be getting these back out soon as the weather gets cooler. Real McCoys horsehide:

Beautiful gloves, Bill. I wonder if they still offer them?

^^ thanks man :)

Wouldn't know I'm afraid. I bought them in (one of?) the Tokyo stores (Daikanyama?- are there more than 1?) about 2 years ago. Here's the bag they came in, with the serial name:

Thanks Bill, I found what appear to be the same glove under a different brand. I'll order and see.

yup I agree- I'm sure they're repros of the same thing. I did a quick google and these look better (and cheaper) than some I found. What's really impressed me with the RM ones is how beautifully the leather's aged. They were a lot more expensive than these though (don;t remember what they were in Yen, but I think it was about £75), so you might have got a great deal! let us know how they turn out

edit- ps mine stretched out quite a bit, to the point where I wish I'd bought the size smaller, that felt slightly tight in the shop. might be worth bearing in mind:)

Thanks, that's helpful. I emailed them with just that question; whether to order an L or XL. And yes, the patina is what attracted me to them in the first place. Thanks again. edit - By the way, what size did you order?

I'm really liking their OWA-12 CO TAN but it's not clear where the bills go in this wallet, I might order one in the near future tho.

looks pretty good, but man they cost an arm and leg

I''m guessing that is due to the leather being used...

cordovan, elephant, ostrich, crocodile, don't come cheap I reckon

Thanks guys!

I see Manifold products whenever I'm in Tokyo. Just gorgeous. My FH wallet reign is made by Manifold - about all I was willing to spend at that time :rolleyes: - which I now regret... I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be disappointed!

That manifold that hollow posted is the nicest piece of leather I have ever seen. Cordovan and Croc makes me cream my shorts. Then I did the price conversion...
