As some of you will know, Haraki and I have been talking to Josh at Good Art for some time.  Josh has impeccable taste  (he wears Iron Heart) and we rather like his stuff.

Haraki wears the most amazing Good Art Nato strap that Josh made for him and we have our good friend @Tempvs wearing a prototype and testing it on a few (well, he does have one or two) watches before I get a batch made for real.  We have been talking of all sorts of collaborations and we have given Josh a wish list of what we want to stock.  Josh thinks he can give me a better list and I am sure he is right.

@Madame Buttonfly went to the forge and had dinner with Josh and Rachel (and @Chris at Wesco was there for good measure).  Josh and co have been extraordinarily busy, but I think things will move a little quicker now.....

Stoked.  Can't feckin wait.....

Looking forward to what y'all have in the works, I have a Model 10 that I wear daily (thanks Ben!) and a belt loop buddy. They're both great and get daily use.

This seems like a really natural fit in terms of collaborations. Really looking forward to picking up a belt loop buddy and some other pieces.

I also really like the St Christopher and $100 nickel pendants.

Looking forward to seeing what Ye Olde Stubborn Crew come up with.....

About as good as it gets. I'm already a big fan.

Expensive and not until @Tempvs let's me know which watches it works on and which it does not....

All I can say is that I loved Josh and Rachel, too - they are delightful people, we're going to have a ball working with them.  Everything they make is outstanding, I feel really privileged that we got to see the process, the complexity of how each item is made and the attention to detail is truly incredible.  Josh is passionate about what he designs and makes, I can understand why he and Haraki hit it off when they met last year.

Nope.  Josh is Uber busy.  I'll ping him now and try and get a call sorted...
