TUSTING MELCHBOURNE BRIEFCASE UPDATE AND DRESSING TREATMENT

Time for a Tusting Bag Update.... (See Original post

Well it's going on 8 years now with this wonderful Tusting Melchbourne.  I bought it in 2003 and have carried to work everyday.
I just noticed this wear on the edges where the shoulder strap rubs against the edge and there is a natural fold on the flap.
This side is worse, but after 8 years of hard use.... I don't baby this bag, as I think it looks better with age.

With the flash it's not quite as noticeable, but the leather is looking a bit dried out....
The back shows it more.
Just more shots of bag.
Inside the bag, just enough pockets for all my stuff.
The bottom.  It's not as bad as the sides as it just sits on the ground when I'm at work and doesn't get dragged around or anything.
Now the just dressed leather... I used my favorite... Pecards Antique Leather Dressing... I use this stuff on my vintage jacket, chairs and belts... Not boots though..  just plain boot oil for those.
Now it's still a little fresh but rubbed down and ready to go to work.
Notice all those little scratches and blemishes are now gone.
Inside looks fresh and new.
Now it doesn't fix holes, but should help in the extra wear here....
I can't say enough about his bag.  I would love more Tusting products, especially one of their Overnight Bags... Purely beautiful...  
If you can, get one of their briefcases... Mines going on eight years now and I can't wait till it hits 20.... 
It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

  3. It will also keep your precious laptop free from scratches when you are walking with it in hand. At least when it is in a backpack it will be protected from accidental damage of scraping against a wall or something.mens briefcase
