    Does anyone have experience with the Gustin Horween Chromexcel bag?

    Is there a cheaper alternative to this one? I feel like it's already a great deal, but I'm not sure it'll get funded in the next 2 days

    It'll get funded. At 95% they aren't gonna cancel the project. Check out the very recent thread about Gustin stuff being backed/funded.

    Yup, the 1968 cone Mills selvedge mentioned in that thread finally was marked fully funded (was only 90% for the past week or so) and I just got the email saying they charged my card so the cxl brief should go through just fine.

    I was thinking about what a good deal mine was and I found a very interesting thing online.

    look at this one, made by "Coronado Leather in San Diego, California".


    LOOK FAMILIAR AT ALL??

    that is, aside from a tiny bit of handle restyling, exactly my gustin bag. Same D ring and pad, same rivet. Same zipper!

    The other thing I found, which i'm a tiny bit jealous about, is that they also had a BLUE one which I love!
