Tell me about Red Moon wallets - Page 10

post #137 of 148
Bump this ish up!!!

Checking these Ponderosa wallets over at Leather Goods Connection http://www.leathergoodsconnection.com/pochwa.html.

Very undecided on what I want:
1st: long or short wallet (worn plenty of long wallets in the past, but that was before I held down an office job!)
2nd: Unfinished natural oak inside and out, or medium or light brown hand stained with natural leather inside.

Any pointers, suggestions or pics??

Cheers.

^ Mmm, only that contrary to what LGC says on their website, their leather and hardware are not up to Red Moon standards - not comparable me thinks.

Thx. Which model you have (long or small) and what kind of leather? Any pics? Any experience with Obbi Good or Corter's wallets? As much as I'd love a Redmoon, I don't think I can justify the $300+.

Stateside, I can get one of the LGC's for around $90USD; an Obbi Good mid for $160 or a small for $120; or a Corter's short for around $125.

I totally appreciate your input.

Update, after a bunch of searching and consideration, I went with an Obbi Good Condor veg tan mid wallet w/rein.



Johnny at OGL is super nice, and answered all my questions. this wallet is hella beefy, and quite a bit bulkier than I initally figured. My wife says it looks like an old lady's clutch, which I can totally see

Looking forward to a nice tan, and indigo staining on this badboy. Plus a few jokes from those that just don't understand how cool I am with my man clutch!

^^ Sorry, totally missed your questions.
Nice pick up though!

^^ thx! any advice for tethers? I don't think this 12" rein is for me.

I'm really keen on this one from Tanner Goods from Portland, OR ($50/shipped)



Other option is this one from Hollow Leather ($40/shipped):


Other option is to go for a brass hook like this:


Damn, I love buying crap!

^ I love how that Tanner looks while the wallet is in the pocket (and Tanner natural leather ages beautifully), but won't that be a pain in the ass anytime you'll want get your wallet out?

Here is my Red Moon and reign. It takes awhile to become a "reign guy". I'm not sure I'm quite comfortable with it yet. I usually go without it, but I find myself checking my back pocket to make sure my wallet is still there.

Sorry, not much advice since I don't like tethers. Much prefer a solid metal chain.

Good point, S-Town! BTW- how long you had your redmoon?

I've had it for maybe 6 months now. It's HUGE, but I love it. I didn't tan it. Just rubbed in some mink oil. It's taken on some indigo, but not as much as I figured it would. I ordered the reign with silver hooks, and it look really great, but the hook has slipped off the wallet ring a few times. I'm thinking about getting one with clips.

Hello,
I just discovered these wallets. I really would like one! I read thru this entire thread and it's over a year old, so can anyone direct me on where to buy one?  I live in the eastern US. PM me if you have any information. Thanks in advance.
