Awesome Recycle - LV Strap

Now no one can say I don't recycle!

My good friend Aaron Tan a custom leathersmith based in Thailand and Singapore did me a solid.  He made me a SICK...custom one off strap for my watch off my OLD WALLET!  I was about to throw it away...when he told me..."let me make you a bad ass strap with that thing!"

My old wallet was a Louis Vuitton Taiga Wallet.

you can see it there...I had the 6 slot but it was in a cool "X" shape...anyways...

Aaron took that wallet and made me that bad ass strap...one off...no one else will have it and best part is it was made from MY wallet...that I had in my pocket for over 7 years.  It is def a part of me....and now it will stay with me forever.
