      Yeah I still haven't received anything either. I was a $75 pledge and could really use that money for my wedding :/

    2. Creator Jai Bishop on February 13, 2014

      All quite in Japan as well (and that is with Cody's "new" website being in Japanese too). It is a bit of a shame that your religious ethics are strictly theologically based and do not extend into practical application. While I feel disappointed that I lost out on $25 I really feel for those who pledged in the triple digits (especially those that pledged $425 or more).

      nothing yet...

    4. Creator Vicki H. on October 27, 2013

      Has anyone received their leather goods yet? Or does anyone have any information or update on this project? As before, I've received absolutely nothing (goods or communications-wise). :(

    5. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on September 22, 2013

      @Vicki H. Not yet but another backer also hired an attorney, I sent her my email and I am hopeful that we can get to the bottom of this.

    6. Creator Vicki H. on September 22, 2013

      Ken's Lil' Sister: Did you hear anything from any of the places you contacted? Would be interested to hear any news about this project, from anyone...

    7. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on August 20, 2013

      I just filed a compliant with IC3 which is the internet cyber crimes branch of the FBI. I will let folks know what happens, but I am not going to just GIVE this guy my hard earned cash so he can gallivant around with his family. I also have a call into a fellow attorney in Texas, so if any of you folks want to jump on board for a lawsuit let me know.

    8. Creator Vicki H. on August 10, 2013

      Just wondering...has anyone received anything yet? I have not received anything, nor any communications from Cody. I noticed on Cody's Kickstarter profile it says the last time he logged in to Kickstarter was June 10, so I'm getting worried. :( The website listed for Cody in the right hand column also no longer seems to work, as it goes to a webpage all in Japanese. Has anyone heard anything from Cody at all?

    9. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on July 12, 2013

      On July 3rd I received an email notification that Cody was going to send my leather goods, but the trac number merely says:
      Electronic Shipping Info Received
      The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on July 3, 2013 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if/when available. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

      There are several interesting things about this, first, I never chose which color leather I want, the light, or dark brown (Cody, I want the dark brown) second, this was done on the 3rd and since then Cody has been on numerous trips and excursions. According to his posts on Twitter, he is "blessed" and "loving life". I guess a free portion of $7K will engender those feelings.

      I am bummed that I he won't bother to just let us know what the heck is going on. While I am doubtful that I will get it back, I want my money back as well.

    10. Creator Pamela on July 9, 2013

      Has anyone received anything?? at this point i would like my money back

    11. Creator Atul Shah on June 19, 2013

      I have not received anything, I wish he would make an effort to post an update.

    12. Creator Vicki H. on June 6, 2013

      I have not received anything, nor any reply to my last comment/query below (dated May 20). :( Anyone else?

    13. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on June 2, 2013

      So, I just received a reply from Cody, where he claims that ALL the bags have shipped, and that he has updated this project weekly. As soon as I figure out how, I will copy and paste my message and his reply.
      Has anyone received their pledge?

    14. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on May 30, 2013

      I would like my money back.

    15. Creator Atul Shah on May 29, 2013

      Mr. Vance,
      I notice you are active on FB but, would love to get an update from you on KS. The only thing I received recently is a shipping notification with an outdated shipping address. I have moved, so please let me know how I can update my info. BTW your website theleathernomad.com takes me to a Japanese site. Cheers!

    16. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on May 25, 2013

      Hey Cody,
      You were on the site last night and haven't responded to any of the inquiries, nor have you responded to my direct emails. I am still hopeful that you will fulfill your obligations, I am growing increasingly concerned. I see that you are spearheading a fundraiser for folks debased by the tornado, and are actually giving 10% of your process from your sales. So, it is safe to assume that you have the goods, will you just ship them out to us.
      Please communicate with your backers.

    17. Creator Aryn Keen on May 20, 2013

      Same as below. What's the word?

    18. Creator Vicki H. on May 20, 2013

      Haven't received anything as of yet...hope everything is okay. Could you please update us as to the status of our pledge rewards? Any information at all (even if it's simply about a further delay) would be most appreciated, thanks.

    19. Creator Tom Pepe on May 16, 2013

      Cody,

      Please provide an update and status. Hope all is well.

    20. Creator Ken's Lil' Sister on May 11, 2013

      Cody,
      I am getting concerned, is this project still viable? You indicated rewards were shipping weeks ago, yet I didn't indicate what color I wanted.
      Please advise.

    21. Creator ehsman814 on October 13, 2012

      Good luck - glad I am able to back an effort such as yours.

    22. Creator GirlandPiano on September 18, 2012

      Looks like a great project! Keep up the good work! do you have a website? Would love to keep track and save up for an order some day!

    23. Creator The Brewery Incubator on September 13, 2012

      Beautiful! Would love to chat about some custom work once your Kickstarter madness settles down a bit! Opening up a collaborative brewpub downtown and have been thinking about leather tap handles!

    24. Creator Carrie Strong on September 12, 2012

      Beautiful work, I'm only sorry I can't give more at the moment.

    25. Creator Chris Davis on September 6, 2012

      Good Luck Cody!
