    Default Some new leathers from Hancock and Moore worth a look 2019

    For those budget-conscious, the new Nirvana leather is remarkable for a price grade 1. When you see this made up (I have a barstool done in it as a floor model) you will guess this would be a more costly hide in a GR 3 or GR 4 category. It's that good. And its not from China so no 7 % Tariff (I think we have probably seen the end of adding new leathers from Chinese tanneries for the domestic market). It's a matte finish, feels and looks expensive. Will be a good pick. Five colorways, three are browns, one off-white, and one raspberry.

    Another I like is Turnin, Fawn and Charcoal colors. Only two colorways right now, but this is a very nice GR 3 that's not too velvety, great finish on it and has a good drape to it. Worth a look in that price group. Wish there were more colorways in it.

    And of course the Markle is the GR 4 go to for pure luxury, I'm never handled a leather as soft as this one is.

    Any idea if the Nirvana will make it's way to the JIT line Duane? How's it compare to the Juno?

    No idea on that. If it does, it will do so on an entire revamp of the program. H&M management knows they need to re-do the program, but with the Chinese tariffs in place they will probably want to source cut and sewn in another country (such as Vietnam) and that takes time.

    I have to say, the Nirvana fooled me. I unpacked the one barstool that it came on from the Market showroom and had not looked the leather up in the book (it was a new intro). Just by handling it, figured it was a GR 3, maybe a GR 4....and there it was as a GR 1. So yeah, its impressive. You can see the photo of the barstool in it, I have posted that today.
