Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 8:40 am

2013 2013 2013 The Charleston is one of the new models that Filofax have launched this year. I was lucky to be sent an early review sample by Ideas Network to look over and photograph.<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DKCrdGRYUsY/UimRPtGvYMI/AAAAAAAAQY4/XOAL_Cto-oc/s1600/IMG_4311.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DKCrdGRYUsY/UimRPtGvYMI/AAAAAAAAQY4/XOAL_Cto-oc/s400/IMG_4311.jpg" width="321" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Charleston Pocket (front)</td></tr></tbody></table><br />The clasp as a decorative gold coloured metal button, this is also picked up on the fastening of the clasp to the rear cover as well.<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-bEHXKvFM0KE/UimRc86oFaI/AAAAAAAAQZA/8H9KL8Odhn0/s1600/IMG_4312.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-bEHXKvFM0KE/UimRc86oFaI/AAAAAAAAQZA/8H9KL8Odhn0/s400/IMG_4312.jpg" width="332" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Charleston Pocket (rear)</td></tr></tbody></table><br />The Charleston is in&nbsp;full aniline buffalo leather, but it does have some polyester on the interior. The leather is quite smooth, but with a slight natural grain pattern to it. This particular example is in a dark inky blue colour, it is also available in brown, red and purple. <br /><br />The Pocket model comes with 15mm rings. There is no full width back pocket on this particular model. &nbsp;The Pocket size Charleston retails at £60 it will also be available in Compact and A5 size.<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LMYxeEQN1uY/UimR_yXqIyI/AAAAAAAAQZQ/QepeGXRMx-4/s1600/IMG_4318.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="263" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LMYxeEQN1uY/UimR_yXqIyI/AAAAAAAAQZQ/QepeGXRMx-4/s400/IMG_4318.jpg" width="400" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Charleston Pocket (interior)</td></tr></tbody></table><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4tOJGQkdUho/UimR_ePf7UI/AAAAAAAAQZI/i-7PTXttzeQ/s1600/IMG_4317.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="248" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4tOJGQkdUho/UimR_ePf7UI/AAAAAAAAQZI/i-7PTXttzeQ/s400/IMG_4317.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br />The front inside cover has three card slots and two full height pockets one on the inside the other on the outside in a similar design to the Holborn.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-IzRQhskpK3Y/UimScmX_4GI/AAAAAAAAQZY/YTIvSIzMU8g/s1600/IMG_4325.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="236" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-IzRQhskpK3Y/UimScmX_4GI/AAAAAAAAQZY/YTIvSIzMU8g/s400/IMG_4325.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GXUIrngQY0c/UimSc9CR5dI/AAAAAAAAQZc/YwFL6aa-8gI/s1600/IMG_4326.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="255" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GXUIrngQY0c/UimSc9CR5dI/AAAAAAAAQZc/YwFL6aa-8gI/s400/IMG_4326.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><br />The rear cover has a half width full height pocket in leather. &nbsp;The pen loop is fully elasticated and is a stitched at the outer edge of the organiser underneath the generous sized leather clasp.<br /><br />One thing I did notice that was different with this model is the rivets fixing the ring mechanism to the spine of the organiser have metal covers on them to hide the ugly rivet heads you see on other models.
