It's here! It's Here! IT'S HERE!
My Brooks B68s Classic (black) saddle came in the post today. And it is a beaut.
Upon unwrapping it from the sophisticated packaging I dressed it with LEXOL-Neatsfoot leather dressing- designed for today's vegetable tanned leather, which is how this hide was tanned.
I eagerly retrieved my tools to replace the vinyl saddle with my new prize leather saddle to find that somebody had used them without replacing them, ugh.
So for now I can only admire it on my desk as I fantasize about how nicely it will shape to my body & cool in hot weather.
Review to follow...
