So I felt the need (urge) to add it to my collection. I had every intention of actually carrying it, but, wait for it............I used it for a day and just HAD to go back to my Brown Holborn Zip Personal size! I know, I know.........seems we are always looking for the perfect binder. Well, it appears I have finally made up my mind that for me, my Holborn is my perfect binder! I don't feel bad about buying this binder though, I may use it at home for an upcoming project, we'll see. Until then, I am ok with it just residing in my small collection.
Here are pics of it with my inserts.......
Overall I love the leather, it seems very well made. I did not see any ring gaps or marks on the leather so I am pleased with my purchase. I believe my Holborn zip is the perfect binder for me, I have always loved zipped binders because they can usually hold a lot of stuff and I don't have to worry about anything falling out of it, needless to say my Holborn is all that and more to me.
I have thought about this a lot after especially watching YouTube videos from Joshua LaPorte: My setup in the Winchester and A Planner Decision. Also, Katebtps (Kate The Perpetual Student): A Planner Paradox- Filofax. Made me do a lot of thinking about my setup and wether I was happy with it. Here is her link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j76jdUygIUQ and here is the link for Joshua LaPorte: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqfuA4b-OXw for A Planner Decision and link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkQNwKQU9Pg for My setup in the Winchester.
Now after trying to carry the new binder, which lasted all of one day, before I "pined" away for my Holborn and had to switch it back, pretty much the same night, I have realized that what I already have seems to be truly perfect for me and I keep going back to it unable to use anything else because it just doesn't feel the same!
Silly, I know, but there it is..............such as life......(sigh)
