The OGL Mini Wallet Tour
« on: September 10, 2011, 01:54:10 PM »
Starting from 9/11, we'll be spreading the OGL love with a mini wallet tour (against terrorism, ha ha) - courtesy of one leather/snakeskin long wallet from our dear Scasi, who himself has broken in this piece for a couple weeks before it arrived in my grubby hands.

So here's the deal: the wallet will rotate on a monthly basis between participants, who will pick it up from the OGL store on the 11th of every month. This of course means that the tour is necessarily locally-based; and that participants must ensure the wallet gets back to the store by the 10th for a handover. The reason for the store being the central collection point - participants will get their names enscribed on the wallet.

Every participant is tasked to bring the wallet to as many places (ideally far-flung) as possible. Evo pics, of course, are a necessity. Volunteers, sign up here on a first-come-first serve basis and indicate a month of preference - ideally one that hasn't been preallocated to a person before. Personally, I'd recommend picking months where you know you'll be travelling abroad, so that the wallet clocks some mileage.

Update: Aaaaand we're just about done! Folks - feel free to arrange swaps with other folks if you can't make the dates - just update this post accordingly.

Named.


Grubby hands.


Additional notes from Scasi: Guys, do take good care of the wallet and not thrash it like a bitch. This beauty is not made of denim, using London tan saddle leather inside out, with a natural python inlay.

Also, because some of the participants asses are leaking (i swear i know it does....), do oil them every every week for waterproofing! (dun forget!)

Ok, weekly pics appreciated, "what are your wallet is doing?" Once post please do use the fb link and do the updates, James will take the pics and update in other forum on behalf, of if you have an account please post others too.
