It took a while (thanks to Malaysian post) but I finally got the new strap for my Omega Gèneve. My trusted watch from the 70′s that just recently got fixed back to its prime. Now fixed, the watch needed a new strap that would befit the classic timepiece. So I got in touch with our friends at Obbi Good Label to get myself an extra long custom leather strap that fits my wrist, and the watch.
Since I got my watch back a week ago I have been looking into getting a new watch strap for my Omega Géneve. Big thanks to everyone who contributed on our Facebook Page.
Ever wondered how’s a day like at a workshop producing premium leather goods? Tanner Goods gives everyone a sneak peek into their daily life through a timelapse filmed across 2 days at their Leftbank Workshop. Pretty awesome video, hoping to see another one from a denim workshop. Denim guys reading this, take note. (hint, hint…)
As hinted in our last post, we’ve been in touch with a new brand that focuses on sturdy leather goods. This brand is Kawatako, made in Japan.
Few days ago I posted a briefcase themed teaser article titled “What’s in your briefcase?” Today I’m picking up from where I left off. Introductions done, so let’s get down to business.
Way too often we appreciate goods for their functionality, beauty or for the sub-conscious factors like the symbolic value of the goods without thinking about the time and effort that goes into making that particular product. Globe-Trotter is a world-renowned luggage producer that has kept up the artisan mentality in producing their suitcases and other leather goods since 1897. Their recently launched video showcases just what goes into making a Globe-Trotter suitcase.
The older you get the more you start to appreciate the intangible Christmas things such as time spent with the family. This Christmas was special as it’s been over almost a year we last stepped in Finland. It was good time with the entire family together. Christmas or any holiday for that matter is so much more than the presents. But the presents do count as well. Even the presents given this year were special to say the least. The theme was definitely vintage goods in form of watches, jewelry and a bag. This edition is dedicated to that bag a present from my family.
Louis Vuitton is known for not only their luxury goods but lavish art pieces as well. In celebration of the company’s 100 years of small leather good collection, the brand teamed up with Chameleon Visual and artist Billie Achilleos in creation of number of small leather good animals. Really fascinating project and clever art pieces to say the least.
Video and more pictures after the jump.
I mentioned our stop at the Gucci store in Copenhagen in my post CPH Copper Label update, and as much as I dislike repeating myself I need to make an exception in this case. I do occasionally visit these boutiques to check the selection and to observe the staff’s service attitude. As mentioned in the past, I was positively surprised about the service centered approach. So much that I exchanged my money to a particular belt they had in the store, that just happened to be my size. Or to be frank it was my wife who bought the belt as my birthday present.
