There was a french calf in tan passport cover on BB clearance section for about a year. When they had their clearance sale a few weeks ago, it came down to $50 so I bought it. Do I really need it? No, but once they can find it and ship it to me, I'm pretty sure that I'll keep it as tan leather always looks good.
If I had my own internet access, I would have answered your most interesting post before. Yes, I would like to see your nice calf skin cover for your check book, although I don't have a check book and I am still concerned about which passport case I must buy. I have abandoned my idea to have the case on a lanyard - Ettinger offered to punch a hole in their case and add a ring around the hole, but the further dilemma is lanyard selection and skin contact. Ettinger claims their passport case is softer than Swaine's, but didn't elaborate about the asserted style difference? Thanks very much for the tip and I shall check BB for that tan passport cover!
