All of the above items are perfect!  Love the Field Notes Wallet.  Thats a great idea.

I looked at your site and you said the buckles are from Japan.  Is all of your hardware from Japan?  Is it superior to the typical hardware you find more readily available?
Sell me your Mister Freedom stuff. :)

Not all of my hardware is from Japan, but the hooks on the reins and bracelets and the "premium" buckles are. 

The finish on the Japanese stuff is not polished but not coated in fake "antique", it's more of a raw appearance, which I like a lot.  There is less effort taken to make the metal look uniform, so it's more interesting to look at right off the bat.

The buckles are particularly nice, they're shaped with thicker leather in mind, which makes a big difference in minimizing the "buckle bulge" that you can get with heavy belts sometimes.  Teardrop holes also help with that.
I make things out of leather.

Mr. Hollows has built 2 belts for me, one for my father and one for my... a girlfriend. Both fantastic, I will try to get some photos soon.

They are, but just the cheap mass market version from a few years back (I flattened the rivets).

Nic has always been my leathercrafting hero.  He comes up with excellent designs, and has perfect stitching and burnishing.

Hollows, do you maintain a wait list for items in production, or is it first come first serve when you release batches?
