when confronted with "brayr rabbit and the tar baby"-i ask to speak with the owner/manager

"the clerk is a jerk" if the owner doesn't know it -a dissatisfied customer will tell 12 people

your reputation precedes itself-which helps or destroys your business

The legendary foo. What is the story behind him? How did he get his own icon and what does that icon mean?

Foo is famous for his diminuitive size and great attitude he shows when being ribbed about it. He was a finalist for Esquire's best dressed regular guy competition (or is it GQ?) a while back. He's got great knowledge and taste, all around good sport.

He did great fit assessments, dont know if he still does.

I don't actually remember what triggered the icon, nor what its original meaning was. I use it when I believe its something Foo Approved(R) or want to call bullshit.

It shouldn't matter who you are, treatment should be the same. And, why are you so hung up on a particular shade of green wallet? Aren't there more important things to be thinking about?

God I miss this thread. The video was the second funniest animated video, behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It doesn't feel like nice leather to me, in contrast to the leather I've seen on other Valextra stuff. Meanwhile, I've been corrected that the Evergrain leather Hermes uses is a naturally grained calfkin, not embossed.

Not that it matters now, but was leafing through this thread (given all the references to it and its ability to provide good, lighthearted reading) and noticed this post. My understanding (simply by observing the products and prices) is that Valextra uses three grades of leather on wallets: there's the completely smooth leather (least expensive, not available in US AFAIK, only seen on Euro online store and used mostly for small card cases). Then there is the grained but likely embossed variant, which I think is what many of the card cases and wallets at Barney's are and probably what you saw, which comes in second. Then there is a softer, more lustrous grained leather, which I don't think is embossed, and is the highest line. Again, haven't seen much of the latter in the US. These are examples of the three, all on the same model but in different colors:

The smooth: http://shop.valextra.it/en_EU/MEN-S-WALLETS-GRIP-SPRING-6-CARDS-STRAWBERRY_L2NhdGFsb2cvdmlld1Byb2R1Y3QuanNwP2NkUHJvZHVjdD03MDU0MA==.jsp

The embossed: http://shop.valextra.it/en_EU/MEN-S-WALLETS-GRIP-SPRING-6-CARDS-NAVY-BLUE_L2NhdGFsb2cvdmlld1Byb2R1Y3QuanNwP2NkUHJvZHVjdD02ODQ0NQ==.jsp

The natural grain: http://shop.valextra.it/en_EU/MEN-S-WALLETS-GRIP-SPRING-6-CARDS-VALEXTRA-GREEN_L2NhdGFsb2cvdmlld1Byb2R1Y3QuanNwP2NkUHJvZHVjdD02ODQ0Mg==.jsp

Also note that the latter is a very dark green and, should future needs call for it, I know that items may be ordered directly from the Milano flagship store via phone/email and that custom orders are available when a style/color combo doesn't exist in the store.
