I discovered that a poster above makes his own leather goods - I overlooked that before because I just read his comment about the leather. However, the bridle leather wallet he offers on his website doesn't seem as fine as that advertised by Ettinger, although the price difference is almost twice as high. My present inclination is Ettinger bridle leather.
Time you bought something rather than talked about it.
I bought the Ettinger wallet in bridle leather and am quite happy with it. Unfortunately, I forgot it once in a pocket so it got washed at 30 degrees for about 40 minutes, but although it did suffer a bit, it survived. Later I ordered in red an Ettinger passport case, which is also beautiful.
