Ok, the decision is final, we have 10 color way total for our Shinki Shell Cordovan. I have hand pick 5 color to launch for end of this year, making them available to purchase both online and our Retail at Tuckshop & Sundry Supplies.
1st launch color way. Tan color palette for this festive season. Red, Burgundy, Cherry, Brown Tan and whiskey.
It will only be available on our Signature Brave series.
As for the other 5 color which is Blue, Olive, Natural, Mustard and Black… will be for 2015, however both Blue and Olives are running low, in fact the Green is totally out.
The maximum quantity I estimated that I can make for the 1st launch is about 4 – 6 per color, with out affiliated partner in Peking booking almost 50% of the stock, I believe stocks is pretty low before we even launch. So apologize in advance. Tentative date of launch will be last week of November.
Belts, the one accessory that all man needs but most neglected. You know that when you are a belt maker…
Throughout the years of belt making in Obbi Good Label, we encountered men coming up with exquisite taste of styles and boots, but lacking a good belt. And during these years, we did our part by recommending suitable leathers and belt styles for these people.
Consolidating our records of public preferences, we selected 7 popular belt styles for release of OGL 2014.
Natural vegetable-tanned leathers of cowhide double-bends, matched with different types of buckles selection. Just by the feel of their thickness at approximately 5mm or more, you know they last a lifetime.
Latigo leathers from Horween leathers are cut at 1.5mm width to coupled with Solid Brass buckles.
All 7 of them are now available on Obbi Good Label webstore, FREE SHIPPING internationally.
Got a request in April from Taavi (Nordic Denim Founder) to custom this full leather duffle bag from an old vintage eastern europe made 80s bag.
I got a couple hundreds feet of horween natural Essex leather that seems suitable for the make.
The label created by Taavi is Jaeger
Source out YKK JACKET zip.
Full solid brass hardware
Design a one of it’s kind side loop to the bottom creating the duffle tote look.
Because the bag is heavyweight, i increase the handle grip to balance out the design.
It’s been awhile since we have new collections.
Some preview of the staple lot…
Our Jane Money Clip, basic 3 color way.
Mayan trifold wallet, this model was release in 2013, it’s my personal favorite, keeping it staple for now.
Mid condor, we introduce CXL as the out shell.
Our Brave Series, new Horween range, CXL khaki, rio latigo and rio peninsula (horsehide)
Also releasing with the zip key pouch.
Brave bi outerfold, all brave series are our own very unique cuts and design.
Horween natural Essex oil leather, thia could be a limited run, because a client will be reserving the balance 500 sqft of the leather.
The next post, will be our 2014 highlights.
