Though strictly speaking not really a monogram, these kangaroo tri-laminate double toe straps feature the new (surprise) owner's initials - hand embroidered. New to my repertoire of techniques this method allows for finer line work lettering to be applied to the straps. The colour is the natural undyed kangaroo hide which will quickly darken to a light tan when exposed to sunlight. Ben, I hope they are well received.
It's not easy to find yellow leather in Melbourne. Nor is it easy to find nickel plated rivets in 15 - 16mm diameter. Mark knew the shade of yellow he needed for his recently acquired San Marco Regal, Taubmans call it Retro Gold. Eventually we managed to pull the project together with a really nice Australian twist too. The leather is kangaroo dyed to just the right shade of yellow. The rivet caps are actually the tops of press studs polished to a high shine. I've been wanting to attempts a Regal recover for quite some time now, thanks for the opportunity Mark.
