Billykirk 'Worn-In' No. 5

Doug from New Jersey is a repeat customer and this is his nicely worn No.67 card case in brown leather and red waxed cording. This one has a patch of vintage OD (olive drab) military canvas with hand-painted stripes. Circa 2005.

Billykirk 'Worn-In' No. 4

Here's an old one, our No. 33 double strap cuff in tan and cognac leather from '02 or '03. It's aging to perfection. If I recall, this came about when we had a quick request to re-make a cuff worn by Johnny Depp. This was the first sample.
From our personal stash.

Badwater Ultramarathon 7/14/08

The 31st running of the most demanding and extreme running race offered anywhere on the planet starts today.

I have been fascinated by the 135 mile Badwater Ultramarathon that takes place in Death Valley since the early 90's. Temperatures reaching 130 degrees, shoes melting to the road, the horrific preparation and training.....It's the ultimate test of ones mental and physical strength. There are no cash incentives and it's not televised. The highly coveted prize is a Badwater belt buckle which you won't receive unless you finish in under 48 hours. If you are interested in learning more about this race check out the documentary,
"Running on the Sun."

It's safe to assume that all the men and women participating in this beast of a race are highly goal oriented individuals who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. These same principles can be applied in business......

Set the goal
Be un-yielding in your quest for it
Attain it
Move onto the next one

Billykirk 'Worn In' #3

Our good friend Bev, from Brooklyn, was by the studio today and I was able to take a few photos of her nicely aged Billykirk items. Her No. 123 Utility Pouch in brown leather with brass hardware and her No. 134 Journal in black leather with red waxed thread never leave her side. They are from 2004. *
Please note: All of our No. 134's come with matching waxed thread now and have a different stitch pattern.
