3sixteen just posted a photo showing how their new Tanner Goods bracelets will age over time. When you buy the bracelets new, they look pale and stiff, but I think part of the fun in owning a genuine leather product like this is watching it age, change color, and crease. Definitely looks better as it gets broken in (plus there’s the connection you have with actually being a part of the aging process rather than simply buying it pre-aged). Compare the look of the aged leather above with how it looked like almost a year ago.

If you’re interested in getting one, the bracelets are now on sale at Self Edge.
