Thought I would post an aging photo of my sling bag @Duke Mantee made me. I love this thing and it’s starting to get beaten up, people stop me and ask me questions about it all the time. Thank you Duke! 🫅

That’s aging great. Do you (either of you) worry about the ends of the darts being such points of stress, over time?

No, the leather isn’t under any more stress than it is on the main seams around the bag. It’s a fairly normal method to make a gusset.
