Rapha+Paul Smith Essentials case: wearing in Part Two

For the second instalment of the Wearing In series I present you my Rapha+ paul Smith essentials case. It's quite an appealing little number if you overlook the fact that it bears more than a passing resemblance to a woman's makeup bag, and remind yourself that it does in fact contain very manly cycling-type things like tyre levers and a puncture kit.

It has some nice Paul Smith details such as the bi-coloured zip and embossed leather to one side, as well as a message from the man himself printed on the lining.

Seeing as this has already been up a few mountains with me on the Etape and done some considerable miles since and is still looking as good as new, I fear this might present a little less exciting subject.

But it is white leather and is already demonstrating a few signs of wear, so I live in hope that over time it might become a nicely battered piece of kit, especially with the grime of the winter looming.
