yeah they will. natural leather will patina over time much like how raw denim works. things such as interaction with water and sunlight help to evole the leather, its pretty cool!

i am still waiting on my belt

After 12 months my denim stretched... Any hints or tips on making them tighter other than washing it?

What brand do you have? Some tend to stretch more than others and lose shape over time. To get rid of the stretch soak in hot water or warm wash are the only options...

I strongly dislike the Nudie wallet at $199.

The quality looks to be quite low, the loose stitching and cheapo chain are telling.

Lol $199? I thought it would be closer to $50, if that.

maybe they noticed that too and changed their stitching.
You can see on buddy's wallet the stitching is white so maybe they're using something more durable now and wanted to make it noticeable by changing the stitch color.
Idk, just a thought.

Edit: speaking of leather, I really need to oil my tandy belt soon. Will be a year since its last oiling in April.

its clearly full grain leather and a semi premium brand. $199 may be a bit steep but 125+ i can easily picture. not to my taste but it doesnt look that cheap to me.

I would rather pay that much for a legit full-grain wallet than double that for some LV Damier bullshit.

Google styleforum APC thread. Will have a few dozen examples of how much they shrink. From my experience, lengthwise they don't shrink or stretch much at all, but always safe to leave a bit of wiggle room, i.e. don't hem it to a point where a few milimeters shorter would make it look like ass.

....or, you could pay $75 for a full-grain wallet from Tanner Goods, and save $124 through the exclusion of poor quality stitching and a horrible chain.

LV wallets are awful, Alexander McQueen makes the best pieces in that price bracket.
