Reader Question - Help identify this vintage organiser.

Hello Philofaxy team,

We received this from Linda, can you help identify this make and model of organiser? Leave a response in the comments or email me steve@philofaxy.com  
I have a lovely old diary/planner that I got in 1991 and had never thought much about the brand until now. And now it's driving me nuts because I cannot work out who made it. I am happy to keep using it but if I could get another of the same beautiful leather I would like to. Of course in my searching I've seen and now fallen in love with lots of other brands and I can feel an obsession coming on.

Anyway I am hoping you might recognise it and be able to tell me who made it. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Free For All Tuesday No 311

Tuesdays is the day we open the floor to you all to ask questions or discuss anything ring bound planner related.

Don't be shy to ask a question, we were all 'beginners' once me included. Don't think oh it is silly to ask a simple question that has been asked before.

Fire away with those questions and the answer might already be on Philofaxy, but yes I know it's not always easy to find particular posts.

Guest Post - John Rocha A5 size Binder in Black - Anthony

Thank you to Anthony for sending in this short guest post on an organiser I'd not come across before, they have appeared in Debenhams in UK. 

Recently I was visited our local branch of Debenhams Store and to my surprise there was a display of John Rocha Binders in real leather.

There was a choice of black or brown. I inspected all of them paying close attention to the alignment of the rings, 30mm, most were good. The ring mechanism on most of the binders when using the tabs to open required a huge effort to open.

I finally settled on one in black. Inside there is a 2017 diary a week on two pages, followed by tabs: Yearly Planner, Notes, Reminders, Meetings an A to Z index pages at the rear.

The quality of the paper is very close to the Cotton Cream, the paper weight around 90gsm. At the front there are eight horizontal cards slots, a zipped vertical pocket with leather pull tab and beneath that a full size inner pocket.

There is no pen loop or Today Page Marker. There is a substantial 12mm wide elastic loop which keeps the binder in a closed position.

I have to admit after only a very short time I’d decided to buy and wondered why the binders were here in the store. There is of course a section of John Rocha fashion clothes the display was in this area.

The full price was £42.00 the sale price £12.00 needless to say I am delighted with my purchase.

Thank  you Anthony, these look very good value for money, especially being leather.
