    Default Hancock & Moore Leather Drops Dec 23, 2014

    Here are the leather drops from Hancock & Moore, with a notice that all stock has been depleted. There is no January price increase this year on H&M and Jessica Charles, only pricing for the new Market intros, so that is good news as the cost of leather is rising due to lower cattle herd numbers, so I was half-expecting a bump in prices - appears we will be good until July on current pricing. If you were considering one of these hides on this list, you will need to re-select.

    Wow! Some highly recommended leather choices being dropped by H&M in the Kipling and Ryan lines, for example. Surprised to see one of Duane's favorites going away in Kipling Whiskey.

    Ha ha! Collectible or not H&M still has some great leathers to offer. Loving my pieces in Atticus Sable!

    Duane, What GR 2 leather would you recommend in place of the Kipling?

    I think it all depends of what you want. In GR 1 and 2 at H&M, you're going to get a finished leather for the most part, and there are a number of good ones. The only GR 2 leather I really don't care for is Document. I know if I were buying a GR 2 leather for myself, one of the ones I would look at is Atticus, because I prefer aniline hides instead of painted ones. Other than that, I'd be moving up into higher price categories to get the leather I want. The H&M product line is so well-made, and lasts such a long time that 5% or 10% more to get what you really want is (in my opinion) the only way to go. Amortized over the life of the piece (25 years +) its not much in the grand scheme of things.

    Very true! I really liked the look and feel of the Kipling and Ryan's. I am sure they will be missed.
