Official simplified version of Johnny’s Cuff, made by the same hands as the one Johnny wears. “Close To Johnny’s” Cuff.
After the release of “Pirates of the Caribbean, Curse of the Black Pearl”, July 9, 2003, gbb Custom Leather began receiving angry emails from Johnny Depp fans all over the world. Most notably, Japanese fans were furious when they received badly designed and executed fakes of the cuff made for Mr. Depp during filming. The cuff was ubiquitous because of the print publicity surrounding the film. Puzzled, at first at how Japanese clients, usually very attentive to detail could be fooled, gbb Custom Leather looked into the fake bracelet sellers’ websites. The makers of the phonies were using a photo of Johnny wearing his authentic gbb Cuff! Mystery solved. They’re still at it.
Like Johnny Depp, customers of gbb Custom Leather, old and new, deserve high quality. You can expect the finest materials and craftsmanship. Your cuff will darken with age and exposure to sun and oxygen, just like Mr. Depp’s.
The new “Close to Johnny Cuff” looks like Johnny’s.
Handmade in the U.S.A. by gbb Custom Leather.
