  1. Quiet day! I thought Philofaxy might be inundated with gushing comments about the new "sumptuously soft textured croc effect organiser crafted from luxury Italian calf leather" (but presumably made in India or China?). Just £179 (€200) in A5. www.filofax.co.uk/Classic Croc

    1. I'm waiting the arrival of one! To see if it lives up to the description...

    2. It looks nice, but you can't tell quality from a few photos. I'd still rather save my money for a VDS...

    3. Actually this is what I thought initially when I read Tim´s comment. I think Filofax has let down so many customers along the many years that despite the pictures are all nice and dandy... it still comes with a whiff of current Filofax... um... quality. And if indeed one is to spend money on a nice binder, why not get something that is actually good and one that is known to stand the test of time.

    4. Do you think the design looks suspiciously like a Van der Spek Touch Me, or a Gillio Compagna- zip pocket on the left, slip pocket on the left and right of left interior side, credit card pockets on the right...

    5. YES! This is exactly what I thought. Good looking planner, looks just like those fabulous ones with rings that actually are good quality. In all honesty, the level of doing the absolute minimum is starting to tip the scale from disappointment to repulsed.

  2. I think I am more curious to see the soon-to-come new colors in the other styles.

    1. Me too +Peach , even though I'm quite happy with my pocket Malden.

  3. The classic croc one in the pocket size is wider than my Franklin pocket binder. I would not carry it if I am walking a mile. The zipper compartment is convenient. I prefer a smaller pocket binder since I do not intend to place a calendar in it.

  4. Hi all. Anyone else disappointed with the configuration of the current Original A5's front/back interior covers; the fugly wide elastic pen holder, and pad slot on the back? It didn't stop me from buying the Patent Nude (ka ching!), but this morning I removed the elastic pen holder, preferring to cover the now visible stitch holes with a clipped in card. Hmmm – still a fan, missing the old days I guess.
