Anyone have a British Belt bag from one of the drops with some mileage on it?

Yes sir. I've been meaning to write a review of sorts but haven't gotten down to it. I can post some quick pics if you like and quick comments. I have the port rucksack btw.
I've had it since its first drop - I got it in late May, 2015 and have been using it regularly (everyday) since.

Okay some really crude photos, sorry they're not in the sunlight.
Okay so basically, overall I'm happy with the canvas. I like how the leather and canvas have aged and how their color has changed over time. I love that the bag has a leather bottom rather than a canvas one, that helps a lot, and it gets scratched up so looks cool too.
The leather which has seen the most aging is on the flap, the leather that comes from the top to the buckles. The edges have become dark, and at the top (the area exposed the most to the sunlight and any light) has become almost uniformly darker brown.
The bad stuff. The stitching on the handle at the top came loose really early. It's become worse now, and I've thought about cutting it off. That loose thread that you see in the photos is annoying and makes the bag look cheap because hey, a thread is hanging loose.
The reason that I have so many photos of the leather straps on the back is that I wanted to show that I like to keep them fairly tight, but they ALWAYS get loose and slide down to this one spot. Also, the burnishing on one of the straps has come completely off, so that's annoying too.
Overall I like the bag, and I actually get a lot of compliments on it. That said, I do wish that they had used better construction on the bag, cause I am not entirely sure how long this will last.
For reference, this has been my everyday backpack for college and work for a year, the typical load of a (super heavy) laptop, some books, charger and mouse is shown. For short trips I would take this backpack too, fill it up with rolled up clothes and toiletries.
I love the lining too, btw. and the color is beautiful. Now I'm repeating things but I wish the construction was better.
EDIT @massdrop I would actually like being able to see the photos when I edit my post, so that I can rearrange the comments to the photo I want. When I upload these many pictures it's hard to keep track of which photo is which when all you see are links to the image files (which typically happen to be time-stamped.

As title suggests, share stuff you own that have developed their own personality over time. If said products come from Massdrop it'll be beneficial to potential backers for future drops as well. I'll post soon, I thought I'll just create the thread first. :) Some suggestions: Raw denim Shoes / boots Leather / denim / canvas jackets Casual watch straps Bags

A Review of Solid State for Men's Wayfarer Solid Cologne
Solid State is a company that produces solid fragrances for men. I can’t find too much history on the company online, but they’re based in Australia, and produce a range of fragrances, body and face washes. Their major USP is the fact that their fragrances are ‘solid’, in some kind of a wax base, so the product should last longer, and is much more convenient for taking out and about with you, to ‘top-up’ (which according to almost every review I read), is a necessity. But hey, these are the days of the metrosexual male, and there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t too become accustomed to pop off to the loo ‘to refresh’ our fragrance, just as women have been doing for years. Having been bombarded by their UK Facebook advertising campaign, I thought I would give it a go. So I placed an order from their website. I thought I’d play it safe, and go for the variant which has attracted the most positive reviews, ‘Wayfarer’, which is ‘inspired’ by Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, which...

The Leather Boot
[image] In my personal opinion the leather boot is by far the most important footwear that has ever been made. From function to style the leather boot remains king after many centuries. I am starting this thread to get boot lovers together and talk about their personal favorites.

How to give your car key to a valet
It's probably not best to hand off your house keys to a stranger. Imagine you're on a date and you want to look smooth handing off only your car key to the valet. Instead of struggling to pull your car key off the main key chain try the BOCONI Crocodile Key Fob for an easy snap-on / snap-off closure. The one side has a snap, perfect for looping through just your car keys. The other side has a secure ring for everything else. Part of looking smooth is doing things effortlessly, it's the little things! [video]

Slow down in style
I used to enjoy checking the style shop and find SAXX, Darn Tough, PARC City shoes, etc. I haven't seen these brands lately and have noticed a decline in the variety of offers in the style community. Is there not enough demand for these products or is there some other issue in getting more than belts and denim offerings there?
