Good leather-bound journals?

Anyone know of a good, quality, leather-bound journal?

I'm looking for a gift for someone, and I had the thought of a nice leather-bound journal. I'd prefer it be something you could refill. I've found plenty of Google matches, but most of them seem to be from semi-shady sources, and I was wondering if there is one company that is considered de facto.

Sort of like Moleskin, but leather.

Jenni Blick has lots, and many of those are refillable.

Mulberry make the best leather notebooks I have found, but they are not refillable (See Organisers & Inserts > Other.) Very nice though.

Your timing is uncanny. I recently received an email from Levenger touting their new line of refillable leather journals. And though it makes me feel a bit like a cog, here's the link they gave:

How about Moleskine, with leather? Cool Tools recently had a post about leather covers for Moleskine journals.

Franklin Covey has been around forever making some of the best leather binders. I have used a zippered refillable calender for at least 5 years and it has performed perfectly. The leather binders can be used for any purpose and are a standard size which can use paper from any source.
