Free For All Friday No 294

Welcome to the 184th day of 2014... more or less the mid point of the year plus or minus a few days!

And of course I wish all our readers in the United States of America a happy Independence Day.

But of course it is a Friday so please feel free to discuss anything Filofax or ring bound organiser related.

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. Hello,
    I shall like your opinion. I have the possibility in size staff is to buy yellow or black Finsbury or Malden in old rose. What do you advise(do recommend) me? Thank you and excellent day.
    Bonjour,
    J'aimerai votre avis, j'ai la possibilité en taille personnel soit d'acheter un Finsbury jaune ou noir ou un Malden en vieux rose. Que me conseillez-vous? Merci et excellente journée.

    1. Bonjour,
      les deux sont de très bonne qualité. Pour le Finsbury, j'apprécie sa robustesse, mais le jaune risque de se ternir (tout dépend de l'utilisation que vous en ferez) et le noir est pour moi trop masculin...(je possède la couleur framboise qui résiste à tout). Il a une pochette zippée à droite.
      Quant au Malden, j'apprécie sa souplesse, le vieux rose (un collector!!) se patinera bien en vieillissant. Il a une petite pochette zippée à gauche et j'apprécie de pouvoir mettre un bloc note à droite. (je possède le pourpre). C'est celui-ci que je préfère et utilise tout le temps.
      J'espère que cela vous aidera pour votre choix, n'hésitez pas à consulter les autres articles du site qui présentent les avantages et inconvénients de chaque modèle avec beaucoup de détails.

  2. Good morning all!

    Do you know what colour rings is the blue Filofax Winchester Iguana print supposed to have?

    I have recently purchased one and on closer inspection I suspect that the previous owners may have changed the ring mechanism. Also, the only photograph I can find online is of the Japanese web site where the rings look to be in gold. Mine currently has silver rings although I think gold rings would look nicer :-) I hope someone can tell me which colour rings so that I can get it right and restore it to what it should have been. It's a stunning Filofax which I hope to use for many years.

    Many thanks!

    1. I think it's quite possible that examples of both ring colours may have been produced. Gold rings were normally explicitly mentioned in the catalogue, and I don't recall seeing this.

  5. There are no Filofax models in the same material and shade as the tan Flex, other than the iPad cases.

  6. A spot of enabling for London-based readers: There's a lot of binders on sale at the Liberty & John Lewis Oxford St summer sales!
