“Pony Express” Leather Pouch
Field Notes Partner Aaron Draplin, on finding an antique leather pouch stamped with a U.S. Postal Service insignia: “I marveled at the simplicity and beauty of the piece. Thick leather and beefy sewing, with an indestructible snap.”
It fit three of our Field Notes Memo Books perfectly. We took that as a sign that we should make some of these, so we partnered up with Tanner Leather Goods of Portland, Oregon to produce them.
Each “Pony Express” Leather Pouch is hand-tooled from premium American leather. We did a small test run last year and it’s beautiful how this leather gets darker, softer, and more supple with time and use. We’ve just taken delivery of the first batch of these and more are on the way.
Memo Book Cover
Some occasions demand a more formal approach than the rough and tumble nature of the “Pony Express.” With that in mind, we’ve worked with George Esquivel, an American designer specializing in rare handcrafted leather goods, to expertly craft our new Gentlemen’s Memo Book Cover.
Each Cover is individually cut, sewn and tooled by hand at the Esquivel Workshop in California and is fashioned from the highest-grade, rich, brown French Calf leather and carries a subtly-stamped Field Notes trademark on the inside. It fits perfectly in your favorite tweed sport coat pocket or duster, and even with its gender-specific name, it will feel right at home in any purse or handbag.
The Gentlemen’s Memo Book Cover is perfectly simple and simply perfect. We have a limited number of these on-hand.
