Obbi Good Label ‘Military WX2’

WX2 is a creativity branch of Obbi Good Label originally base on Work Wear inspired concept. Still maintaining this belief, we continue this concept onto the militant.

This Spring, will be introducing WX2 – Military Style.

Each wallet has got a story of its own, presenting its design background, the imagination of the tradesman and then combining its functionality into a realistic concept.

Military WX2 is in no doubt consisting of the major services of Army, Navy and Air Force, as well as narrowing down into the interesting individual tradesman and their vocation.

Such a concept of designing and producing leather products base on and inspired by occupations, work, trades and specialties is exactly what WX2 is about.

An original concept develop by Obbi Good Label.

Stay tune this May!

WX2 coming soon

Used BRAVE Mid wallet

After almost one year of usage, these BRAVE Mid wallet served us very well. And on top of what we always wanted, they aged really well with minimum maintenance of the leather.

As you might know, all our BRAVE series products are made of HORWEEN chromexcel leather.

We have briefed before that we often design base of the inherent properties of the leathers we use. (see our Facebook note for details)

Here, we show you the differences between the aged and new, Brave Mid Wallet.

Facing left is aged, right is new.

In comparison, you will see an obvious surface texture difference – Aged, shows more grain where as during new, the grains are not as apparent. This is the result of the inevitable light abrasion occurs during handling of the leather.

When we talked about the ‘clam’ effect technique that is employed on this design, it is understandably obvious when compared to the new ones. Take a look at the edges of both wallets – the aged wallet has got its edge bending inwards, similar to a close clam.

The above picture shows BRAVE Mid wallet of Burgundy HORWEEN CXL leather.

For colours other then Black, indigo staining on CXL pull-up leather is faster when you tend to wear dry denim often. This is due to the high absorbent properties of pull-up leathers. Illustrated in the picture, a denim lover like me enjoyed every indigo stain on my Burgundy wallet.

Looking at the aged wallet again, you can easily spot some line impressions on its surface. They are caused by the denim fabric on my jeans backpocket. Such is an example pull-up leather being soft and stretchy.

 

If you are like me, who enjoys the process of aging products, these high quality wallets are readily available here in our webstore
