Sooo...I'm confused. Can you please clarify a couple statements you've made here?
1) "This is somewhere between top grain and full grain. It's a custom process we created with our tannery. If you're asking about quality, suffice it to say I think you'll be impressed"
That answer makes no sense to me. The difference between top and full is in whether or not the surface has been sanded off, right? So, has the surface layer been sanded or not?
2) you state in the comments that this is Latigo, but the product description says Veg Tanned. Which is correct?
For some people, that could make a big difference.
What is the weight of the leather used? This detail seems to be missing from all your drops I've looked at.
This, combined with knowing if it's actually Latigo or veg, and if it's top or full grain, are all key to knowing how the product will feel/behave/hold up when buying leather goods online
Lastly, there appears to be 2 different black (charcoal) leathers pictured here, what's up with that?
Picture 6 looks to be the same type of leather as pictures 10 and 11 which, if I were to guess, look to be top grain.
But pictures 5 and 9 show a very different leather from the rest.
And the ones in 5 and 9 appear to be a thinner, flimsier, cheap looking leather. I would say more like a "genuine leather". Not to insult, but it has the look of pressed/laminated lower layers with a grain pattern imprinted on the surface.
Which is the product actually being sold here if someone chooses charcoal?
Last day of the drop, are you able to clarify before the offer ends?
Thanks for the tag! That made sure I saw this.
1. It has been sanded, but not to the extent top grain usually is, natural markings still appear but only the prominent ones.
2. Latigo is correct, veg is old info and we will work to get that fixed.
3. 3.5-4 oz
4. There's only one black, but there are two browns. One is very dark.
Hope this helps!
Regarding photos 5 and 9, we only sent Massdrop three samples. So the same back wrap is in all photos. What I think you are seeing is that our black leather goes through a different finishing process that basically breaks it in before it ships. So it's not as stiff as the browns. As we largely standardize on this leather we tried to envision what other preferences that would go along with the color choice and cater to that. Hope this helps clear up any confusion.
Thanks, that does help clear up much of it.
Still though, unfortunate to see the black looks like such a cheap leather from the pics
I think you'll be pleasntly surprised, and if not our guarantee allows for a no questions asked return or exchange.
