Monk FactsThis is a tough, simple pouch, made from Frank Clegg’s tumbled calf leather. It has a bombproof RiRi zipper, because the zipper is always the first thing to break on items like these. Big enough to carry all of your miscellaneous stuff – keys, loose change, wallet and phone – it can also carry an A5 notepad with ease. Clegg have used their tumbled calf leather, a softer, textured leather that develops a beautiful patina with time and is perfect for smaller leather goods. Leather goods should be tough but elegant. A man’s briefcase should last the duration of his career and its patina should be a record of his decades of meetings, late nights and countless commutes. It should be built to stand up to years of use and all kinds of weather, but still look good enough to impress a colleague. Frank Clegg knew all this when he started out in the mid 1970s and he has spent the intervening decades refining his craft and sourcing the best materials to transform this ideal of what leathergoods should be into concrete form. Clegg specialise in the use of harness leather, a full-thickness cowhide that has been treated extensively with hot grease and waxes to give it flexibility, smoothness and depth of colour. Only thick, perfect hides can be used and it is an expensive process, but the leather produced is the only material that can be used for the rigid, durable pieces for which Clegg is renowned.
