New arrival: Filofax The Original A5 Organiser in Patent Fuchsia

My fuchsia-coloured patent Filofax The Original A5 arrived today! It goes really nicely with the Personal-sized Original I already had. I will use the Personal when I’m out and about and the A5 will be be used to keep my home and family organised.

I noticed that this A5’s strap is a bit longer than the one on the brown A5 I reviewed a week ago. I measured both straps and the difference seems to be 0.3 inches (0.8 cm). Not that much of a difference, but I imagine that it could make a real difference in terms of how many things it can hold.

Test
The Original A5s in Patent Fuchsia and Retro Brown, side by side. You can tell by looking at them that the strap of the brown A5 fits a bit tighter around the Filofax compared to the one of the fuchsia-coloured A5.

 

Both straps. The strap of the Patent Fuchsia A5 is  4.3 inches (11 cm) long and the strap of the Retro Brown A5 measures 4 inches (10.2 cm).
