Not to jack the thread but this made me laugh. My first experience with A&F was about 1980 when I accompanied my friend and his father to the A&F store in Beverly Hills to pick up a pistol. I remember all the taxidermy and high end clothes..real rugged stuff. I think I recall they had a travel agency too that featured big game hunts to Africa and India. When I was told 20 years later that an A&F store existed in my local mall, I thought I would go there to research a firearm purchase. Imagine the surprise of emo kid behind the counter full of skinny jeans when I told him why I was there...

hijack off

I think Roy died in the 80's and his daughter/kids(?) kept the business going but moved the shop to Boise? Should still be around somewhere. Google Gfeller Casemakers.


I have a belt and briefcase from Gfeller. They use vegetable tanned leather from Hermann Oak Tannery in St Louis. The leather starts a light tan and takes on a deep reddish/brown as it ages.
