Today’s photo is from a good customer of mine – Dustin F. who has been growing his collection of Mr. Lentz Leather goods for a while now. All items started in the Sun Tanned Natural color, and the wallet on the left is at the 34 month mark. 21 months of use on the belt and keychain and about 1 month on the other wallet on the right – used during a trip abroad to India. All of the items are looking good with a nice steady patina developing on each, kind of like owning a nice pair of leather shoes. They just look better and better with age.
I build a variety of wallets and belts here in my small U.S. workshop on a per order basis. Each uses the finest and highest grade of full-grain leather from the top U.S. tannery. I design everything with solid brass rivets instead of stitching. That means there’s no stitches to break years from now!
If you’d like something built for yourself or a loved one, come on over and take a look at my selection in the shop.
The slow and methodic work of setting snaps on a new belt style I am working on. It’s a ‘cowboy rough out ‘ style. Simple change but it gives these classic belts a unique look. Coming soon to the shop…just have to make the rest and do the work to set up the listing.
In other news, I have several new designs in the works including new wallet upgrades and additions, as well as completely new products. They take quite a bit of time to develop before I am ready to photograph and make the listing available, but I should be able to release a few in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
