A few years of daily use with a heavy chain has taken it’s toll on the leather loop on my IHG-02. It is still intact but won’t be forever.

In addition I wanted to max out my brass so I modded the wallet with a hole punch and a shiny new brass swivel and Chicago screw. The silver ring will likely end up on a necklace at some point in the near future...

I was a little apprehensive about sticking holes in an expensive shell cordovan wallet but it was an easy fix and I’m pleased with the result.

Nice modif @neph93 ! I like the cordovan/brass combo even better than the original silver one.

Cheers!

I agree that brass works very well and is aesthetically more pleasing than silver, with the burgundy cordovan. This despite the fact that silver seems more appropriate given the qualities of materials involved.

I used to strive to keep my hardware one colour but I’ve given up. I love my silver GA and IH gear, and brass and tan leather together is great beautiful, so I mix it and no longer give a fekk.

Nice neph93! Along the same lines but not as elegant is my modification to my OGL-BMW wallet.

I picked up an old A-2 deck jacket and there was a stencil on the back that was quite faded. I took the jacket to a local sign making shop and they took a few pictures and measurements and made a stencil for me to re-do it. I think it turned out great. I wish I had a before photo but here it is finished.

Ya it’s pretty cool, there is a faded leather name patch on the front and was able to find out that the owner was the commanding officer there from 79-82.

555N have a pocket bag come away at the top seam. Put new iphone in what I thought was the pocket and it promptly dropped down the inside of my jeans and landed on my foot!

Anyone any ideas how to fix it ?

Thanks, that's a generous offer, but the jeans are well worn, I will see what I can DIY over my Christmas break.
