LV had a lot of canvas and textured leathers which I didn't care for. The few plain leather wallets they had did not look that great in both leather quality and finishing. Several of the wallets appeared to have the sides fused together
The Hermes wallets on the other hand looked good and appeared to be well made. However, there is also price premium for Hermes.
My third option is Swaine Adeney. I have several bags & cases from SAB and have generally been pleased with them. They have also done some custom work for me so I could possibly specify a custom order for a wallet if so desired.
The easiest, but also most expensive option would be to purchase the Hermes wallet. I'm okay with this, but wondering if the price premium is somewhat justifiable i.e. am I paying more for name/brand recognition than quality of goods.
Any thoughts or opinions would be welcome!
