There’s never a bad time for a spot of vegetable-tanned leather, but there’s no better time than Fade of the Day. Today’s installment features a Fitzy Lanyard that has been used for five years by Shaun Collins, a Heddels reader who hangs his hat in Ontario, Canada.
Shaun tells us that this lanyard goes wherever he goes and it’s done so ever since he purchased it. The vegetable-tanned leather looks to have dried out slightly, but that only adds to the character of this rugged piece, which was originally a nude, natural color.
That said, a quick oil treatment could bring out new levels of patina in the years to come, especially as this thing is still holding up strong and ready for another half-decade of use.
