HOLMES custom buckle-front strap for Jared Artaud of the band The Vacant Lots.

Custom lettered TVL strap for Jared Artaud of The Vacant Lots. Despite the graphic minimalism, the un-dyed lettering + black combo was up there with the hardest color work I've ever done and something I'd gone out of my way to avoid trying until now.

Blood + sweat for the win.
