The leather is soft, slightly padded and it has some structure which I prefer in my personal sized binders. Like the personal Ascot, it has a very slim profile which I like and lies flat.
The seller described it as having 'a nice patina' on the eBay listing, but that translated in real life to a bit beaten up! I gave it a wipe with a damp cloth, put on some neatsfoot oil and finally a small amount of black shoe polish to help restore the colour. I'm really pleased with the results as the leather seemed to appreciate the TLC and now looks great.
Of all the binders that I've owned, I think this is my preferred layout.
On the left hand side, there are eight credit card slots, with a full length pocket behind with a pen loop. On the right, there is a full length zipped pocket, another full length slip pocket in front and a pen loop. The two pen loops are very handy and I like that the zipper part of the right pocket is covered up.

Whilst I'm a big Ascot fan, I think that I actually prefer the layout and print on this Dundee which I wasn't expecting. It holds lots, will wear well and I can use it as a wallet.
