Evolution of Leather - Belts Wallets Patches
« on: July 16, 2010, 08:39:40 am »
I'm probably not the only one keeping track of the aging process of leather items.

You have cool pics of leather stuff, patina and cracks (lol) post it right here.

Gonna start with the leather patch of the SEXIH07bk -

2 weeks



2 months



6 months



had to apply Obenauf's - leather was getting really dry from sweat and heat

Dont have any pictures of it when it was new, but this is one of my favorite leather patches.

Thanks Giles! 

This belt has such fine craftmanship.  I can't wait to see how it turns out in a few years!

Really makes me want the wallet...need more money first!
