    I got a custom bag made last year, and I love it.

    Glad you're listening to your customers and willing to compromise, Dave. Thanks.


    I'm going on 9 months for my medium brief and it's aging quite well. I plan on doing a review with pictures as soon as I launch my blog.

    Now that I have addressed Martine's question I would like to let the rest of you know that we have made progress on our makers mark dilemma. I know that many of you have asked & we went back and forth a for a while but I think we now have a reasonable solution. We do have a few "old stock" bags that still have the mark on the front flap, but the new bags that we make will have the mark placed more discretely, either on the back of the bag or on the inside. This will start happening next month (October) IF the customer requests a more discrete mark. Otherwise the bag will be sent with the mark on the flap.


    Thank you all for the input.

    Martine,


    We have not received any e-mails from you... I even checked the spam folder & nada.

    As for a phone number... sorry guys this is a small family run business & the only phone I use is my mobile phone. Who wants their mobile phone number published for the whole world to see? Since we sell internationally can you imagine the calls that would come in all through the night?

    So I assume Rustic leather is not around, are they on vacation? I wish they had a direct number, I have emailed 3 x and no response. Come guys, have a few questions before i order and not be able to talk to a live person. Thank you!

    Hey, thanks Joshua, i appreciate the feedback. So are you saying that they won't remove the their logo? or can I opt for their logo to be put somewhere more discreet than the stock location? Also I see the engraving part and that's sounds nice. I just feel that they have a few items I am willing to spend money on and I would love to have not only my name on my bags, but customize each one to my specific needs.

    Hi Martine,


    I'm glad you brought this thread back as I would've never come across this brand. I'm in the market for a leather bag, and prior to seeing this thread, saddleback was on the top of my list.


    Though the option to have the Rustic logo on the bag isn't available, they do provide a custom monogram service here:

    I think the cost to place your name would be a little more than $30, though.

    I apologize, the emails that I mentioned unanswered are not yours, but they are of saddlebacks

    Hello there Dave, I am a saddleback bag owner and love their gear, however i have been unimpressed with the not answering emails, especially form customers who spend the fortunes we do on bags, nevermined the the convincing we have to tell our spouses. anyways my question is after stumbling onto this site and being pissed when I saw bags of the same equal quality as saddlebacks bags, made me want to dig deeper and ask you. when you decide to make the logo option for your customers, is there anyways a person can opt for their own name as in Martine's Brucheau on the bags? just a question as this will be awesome. Thanks!

    I have a hunch that I may have received one for Christmas. I am extremely excited.

    Jason, We honestly haven't made much progress with the logo option yet. The holiday season is just way too busy to anything other than process & ship orders. Remember that we are a small, family owned business... me & my wife pretty much do everything. When things slow down (statistically mid Feb) we'll be able work on that, which is high up on the to do list, along with a new bag design that I've been sketching. I wish I could go quicker, but there is just so many hours in a day. I need a clone.


    Have a very happy holiday folks & we'll chat after Christmas, my birthday & New Years... yes, my birthday falls between Christmas & New Year.

    How's it coming with the logo options, Dave?

    Wow guys, the impromptu poll coincides with our sales records exactly. And several of you actually nailed the preference order.

    #1 Rich Chocolate

    #2 Buckskin Tan

    #3 Charcoal Black


    I have to say that my personal favorite is the Buckskin Tan. It must be my casual, laid back nature... but then again I don't have a formal work environment either. Jeans, cowboy boots (square toe), casual shirt & my Rustic Leather messenger bag is all I need. Oh, and a hat to either protect my bald head from the relentless Texas sun or the winter cold.

    Another vote for chocolate, tan, black, in that order. Also agree w/ tan on casual pieces and chocolate on professional. I could see black being popular among bikers.

    Yeah, I like the dark brown the most I think. Oh, and you didn't ask, but my favorite pieces are the briefcase and the duffel, in that order. Both really nice.
