    Yes I do that. In my opinion it is very important. Otherwise leather could tear at this place. I don't use them I use a overstitch wheel in size circa 6 spi. Very thanks for this information. I will use them in the next project This is how look this briefcase after one year of use.

    Thank you very much for your compliments. This is the price of the tannery, of the whole double bend, not for square meter. without shipping cost (+10 euro). I thought it was not a big price when I look of the prices of Sedgwick's leathers. I bought now one Sedgwick shoulder (10 sq ft) by Abbey England and included the shipping cost (30 GBP) and taxes (20% VAT) i paid 164 euro.... :/
