I got an 8.5 i have another bracelet from corter from the 100 day project and that was a 7.5, but i just cut another hole. So if its small you can always cut your own hold, it just wont look as clean haha.

I just order some Obenauf Heavy Duty LP too!

Yeah i'm planning to. Its supposed to protect the leather really well and doesnt change the color, so im hoping it works out, but i havent tried it yet so dont take my word for it.

EDIT on that last post I made: My current corter bracelet is a different style so you probably cant cut a hole in the newer ones like i was thinking

actually decided to change my order to a small

figured that with a leather bracelet, it's better to be more form fitting than loose and dangly

How often do you put that on your leather and how much? Also for sizing with the bracelet, i emailed corter and he told me that he'll suggest a medium if a small fits perfect or tight on you and told me that the leather is really thick so it won't stretch much.

so if a small is a perfect fit, he suggests to get a medium instead??

Yes, that's right. I measured exactly 6.5 and that was skin tight. I went with a medium and he suggested medium. He said you can get the small if you want to stretch it out but told me it won't stretch out too much.

I am currently looking for a belt and it seems like it's down to Corter or Tanners. Is the quality of Tanner better than Corter?

Thanks in advance

What's a good brand mink oil you guys recommend? I want a darker reddish brown color and looks like mink oil gives the best color.

If you're looking for a new moisturizer I recommend Bear Grease. You could try Fiebings if you don't like it though.

I just bought the Fieblings mink oil, should i use a top coat of waxes too like Obenauf Heavy Duty LP? Or is the oil enough? From what i understand the Obenauf LP keeps the moisture in but the mink oil causes the leather to become a certain color?

Yes, meat is good, but you must have a bit of potato and corn with the meat or its too dry.

Do you have ketchup with your shepherds pie?
