March 2020 – Bespoke phone pouch and belt
Very pleased with my belt & pouch, thanks.
Excellent, excellent, excellent!
Came across Brian’s site by chance & as he was local, I made an enquiry.
Fast response, helpful response. I wanted a phone pouch but his ‘possibles’ pouch was too small, an exchange of emails & a bespoke pouch was agreed.
In a week I had a belt & phone pouch at a very reasonable price.
Excellent product, excellent service, excellent value. I will be a repeat customer.

November 2019 – Personalised darts case
Good evening Brian,
Thank you for my dads dart case! I really think he will love it! Not happy with Royal Mail though, you have clearly asked for signed delivery and it was not signed for by me? I have no idea who has signed for it? It’s just a scribble in the box which makes me think that it was the courier who delivered it! Just glad I’ve got it!
One quick question though, I’m a little bit concerned how tight the leather is, is it supposed to be like that? I could barely get my finger in?
Thank you again? The quality is brilliant! I can’t wait to see his face!
November 2019 – Plain belts
Arrived today and the belts are great!
October 2019 – Restoration of a fitted box camera case
Case received safe and sound this morning.
At first I thought you’d managed to shrink it, but it was just the total looseness of the unstitched case I was comparing it with.
The camera fits tightly and perfectly (typical flipping Germans!) with terrific protection.
Well done! Great work.
I’ll see what else I can find for you to do!
Cheers and thanks again,

July 2019 – Custom made toolbox for flat tank on vintage motorbike
Many thanks for making me such a beautiful bag. I've attached four photos which I hope do it justice. You are welcome to use them to advertise the bag. If you do so then the description you should use is 'leather tool box / bag for vintage flat tank motorcycle'. Each flat tank motorcycle is slightly different, depending on the model. So to get the proportions correct maybe a small diagram marked with........ so reckon there is an untapped market.
My best wishes and good luck.
