That boot is a 1916 blue ridge ankle duster, if you have the other one it can sell at auction for 10-15 thousand. if you only have one, its worthless though.

just kidding, made all that up.

Curious to see the bottom of the boot. I would have to say turn of the century at least.

You had me going, that's a good one!! I will post the bottom of the boot tonight.

The edge finishing on that is really exceptional, I love to see that kind of attention to detail. Great pickup.

Hey guys, if theres anyone in the forum that would like a starter wallet, it's a bifold with 4 card holders. I'm just working on some different designs, dont want them to just sit on my shelf. There's a couple little dings and misses, but overall not too shabby. let me know if you have any questions.

$25 shipped.

^tanner goods

I've heard this brand mentioned multiple times. The thing is, the colors either seem too light or too bright, not very subtle imo.

for example, the belt on the right is WAY too light. Whereas the belt on the left is perfect. Is the left an entirely different belt or is it a belt after evolution?

the belt on the right is what appears to be a brand new light london tan (or maybe natural) belt, while the one on the left is definitely well loved/worn. have you seen the other colors, or just the natural. the other colors are pretty subtle, but natural, in any brand, is pretty "light/bright."

beatle, i cannot wait to start using those coasters. gorgeous.

I hate to keep polluting this thread with questions, but would you say the belt on the left is a worn version of the natural belt on the right? Or was it from a darker belt?

I'm pretty new to leather so I'm very unfamiliar with the aging process and whatnot.

same belt, you can sun tan a new belt and make it a little darker

^ what jack said is correct. you can age a belt by sun tanning it, and they do appear to be the same belt. though, it does appear that the belt on the left has been worn some. but that's just a guess based on appearance.

Thanks to everyone who input advice, it was extremely helpful. Hopefully the next time I post here, it'll be to show off my new Tanner Goods belt!

Holy crap, that is beautiful...

Is there somewhere I can read about how to properly age leather?! (sun tanning, applying ointments)

FWIW, I didn't do much to maintain any of these leather pieces - just every day use. I applied some leather conditioning cream (made by Woly) every so often to keep the leather from drying out. No sun tanning.

Wabi sabi.

tanner belts comes oiled, so you won't have to apply anything... if you want it darker then it is put it out in the sun and it will darken a few shades.

this should give you a good start on leather care

Wear it.

Leather does require some care, but I hate to see people think that you need to coddle it.

Good leather will age well despite your best efforts to abuse it.
