I recently acquired this Filofax Eton Pocket Organiser, as soon as I picked the Eton out of its box and removed the packing, I realised why this particular model has a certain 'wow' factor to it.
The leather is so soft and supple, the stitching is so beautifully done and the layout and design shows some great detail and consideration, I was quite won over by it as soon as I saw it.
To me it isn't a 'fashion icon' more of a design classic in a way, simple, understated but so well executed that it will be a timeless classic in future years... may be.
It only has the smaller Pocket ring size of 15 mm, but this is the same as my Chameleon. But as you can see there's no shortage of pockets or card slots. There isn't a full width wallet pocket on the rear side. However, it does lay flat right out of the box.
My Malden Pocket looks quite big in comparison! The Malden is 19mm ring size hence the slightly bigger overall size.

Two pen loops in a Pocket organiser is fairly unusual, but the Eton has one on each side so I put in my Filofax Mini Pen and Pencil.
For such a luxury organiser a cotton cream diary insert seemed appropriate. I also raided my stash of inserts for other cotton cream inserts to populate it.
I would love to get hold of a personal size Eton... if you have one you are willing to part with.. please contact me philofaxy at gmail dot com
