The Temperley Affair is the perfect binder with the exception of rings - give me 30mm and I'd die happily.
I totally agree with Janine. The Temperley Affair is definitely the one that I would nominate for a revamp remake. The rings are far too small you can only hold the basic essential leaves inside of it, however I like the fact you have on the left hand side the note book which hides away the amble credit card / business card slots. However, my only issue other than the ring size is the lace covering... I am petrified that my bracelet or ring will accident tear the lovely lace. I would fancy a nice soft leather version. Finally, because I change my FFs often depending on my mood I'd ensure that all FF come with dust bag because it's a pain having to clean near the rings and all the nooks etc :-)
I'd love an A5 double Filofax, similar to the rare one made by Mulberry several years ago. I saw it on Janet Carr's website. Two banks of 30mm or bigger would be great.
I'd love one like that too. Janet's is superb!
A slimline Baroque with 19mm rings. Rest of the insides the same.
Holborn personal, love the leather & pockets, just needs bigger rings.
I would be tempted to cross the line of illegality for a 6-ring personal-double-width Deskfax
Love it, Alan!
I don't need to design a thing - I'd just order one of the Longchamp/LV binders Janet designed from VDS!
??? Details, J!!!
Well, I just joined the vdS Club too! as I finally received several custom ordered binders on Monday.......Beautiful looking (Brandy Italian leather outside), beautifully crafted, and very functional too with large rings, secretarial pocket in front, and wider/extra pen loops......Planner heaven right now..... ;-)Mark
I am loving my compact VDS! It's perfect! I am thinking, however, of buying a regular personal size of the same binder and maybe another compact in another color. But that is all in the future...
Congrats......from a new vdS binder owner (see my post above....)Enjoy!Mark
30mm rings minimum, secretarial pockets both sides with lots of card slots, a big back pocket, personal size, quality leather, lightly structured, two elastic pen loops, snap closure, gold hardware, black outside and brown inside. In other words, a 30mm standard VDS with black Janet leather outside, original Janet Leather inside with Janet's un-dyed binder's layout, Bontex, gold hardware and a big back pocket.
A Personal sized planner that opened up to reveal A5 sized pages. A Tardist planner if you will.
I like the way you think!!
I enjoy reading this answer on RUTS :) Fortunately, companies esp. Van der Spek are helping to make our dreams become a reality :)
