Just purchased a side of Ruddy Red, football leather. Not exactly as shown, but similar to the above, a bit more red I think. This particular Leather is not all that easy to get a hold of, but I had an idea about a year ago, and I've been watching the markets for about six months waiting for my chance to pick some up. Starting the wheels turning for a football series of straps. Haven't made a special order run for quite some time, and some of you may know I love doing these, because, well they are special, and some of my best work has come from pre-order customs. When I do special jobs for individual brothers you know I totally put out. Plus, when I get some cash up front, well it's totally motivating. Not sure if I will include team patches, or an NFL shield patch only. You could easily iron on your own, or stick your fave team pins through, that way you low-life bandwagon jumpers can change out your favoured teams like you change out your gonches. Not sure on price, but for sure under 85 shipped without patches, if I can get ten of you guys in - they will be $100 plus ship if they hit Reverb. The lacing will be a pain, but will make for a great textured look on the front. Will be making one for myself as well. Quality leather and padded, 3" wide. Those going to patriots fans will slightly deflated. I imagine if you want your team patch, you will be able to iron your own on (2.5" wide or less), and I can leave a nice space for it on the frontside somewhere Will of course include football style white leather lace on the frontside and a probably a painted stripe or two. CFL version will be a bit larger than the NFL version. I imagine these will sell nicely on Reverb, but I'm giving you fellas here first crack and a brotherly price. Guestimating I can probably make maybe a dozen out of the side I purchased, maybe fourteen. Please let me know if you are in or out on this. I will be asking for $35 down to help me cover input costs . First come, first served. If I cannot deliver for some reason your front money is refundable, but I won't refund you if you forgot to make a car payment or need crack money If you are in please post a gratuitous and possibly sexist (or is that sexy?) cheerleader pic in this thread to let me know you want one. DO NOT POST ANY CHEERLEADERS OR other pics or memes if you DO NOT want one. I hope to collect down-payments inside two weeks or so. Delivery? who knows. before superbowl? LOL Thanks for considering fellas.
