The other day my father in law, who fought in the Greek civil war 50 years ago, gave us his binoculars. A very nice item and with a big sentimental value. Apart from the binoculars themselves, the leather case was very nice as well. So, what I did was to place the binoculars on the small table near the couch in the living room, and use the leather case as a small bag. It looks great with jeans and can also create a safari look. I am thinking of replacing the strap with a nice two color fabric (maybe something with two vertical lines one white and one dark red or khaki green).
