    That is some SERIOUSLY GOOD LOOKING LEATHER!!!!

    More that 2 years is a verrrrry long wait, though. Of course, the willingness NOT to compromise is evident in every one of those pictures.

    Enjoy!

    That is the best looking exotic holster I've seen. I am curious about the 2 year wait though. I doubt it takes that long to make the holster, so it's either a huge backlog, or difficulty in getting the materials. Any idea what caused it?

    I saw a DeFatti pocket holster on some site that was ostrich (I think). I should never have looked. Nothing else matched up. The problem with a 2-3 yr wait is I may get tired of my gun by them, or we may be carrying .22 laser guided pulse ions by then.
    Wow, that's a beauty!

    Oh my goodness... That is a stunningly beautiful rig. And your choice of hides is magnificent.

    I do believe something like that is worth the wait. Matt really outdid himself on that one.

    Congrats on getting such a work of art. I'm green with envy!

    I consider myself very fortunate as I had Matt build me a PH-3 in Alligator for my Seecamp LWS380. That was almost 4 years ago and it's been worn every day since. It still looks brand new today. The retention qualities remain intact as the day I took possession.

    His workmanship is impeccable and his attention to detail surpasses that of a perfectionist.

    Matt Del Fatti is arguably among the very few leather holster builders in the World who's outstanding reputation has reached a cult-like status.

    CONGRATS on your Del Fatti rig..!!

    That is about one of the best looking leather combos that I've seen posted here...
