Balls. Wouldn't silver look good? Match the keys? In any case, I have the Ravello colored billfold coming my way. Hoping it's what I ordered..

Yeah, I wasn't really gonna use the key case though, just wanted one. He messaged me before shipping so you should be ok

Pretty sure it's indigo from my raw denim. That was one of the things I was worried about with the white.

My avatar is my personal black shell wallet. I based it on a Barrett Alley version but made it bigger. It's also sewn with kevlar thread to last a lifetime. I saw one of Noah Lambert's "one piece of folded leather" wallets yesterday and was really impressed. I"m using my last piece of black shell to make something similar. Can't wait for my Whiskey shell order to come in from Horweens. Sewing this one up tonight.

Any luck getting it sewn up?

 

I'm pretty curious to see how this one turns out.

 

Thanks,

I just finished sewing up a Whiskey Shell Cordovan wallet using Noah Lambert's design. (like my black example above). Made from a single piece of leather folded over. Love the color on this one. Will post pics tonight.

Noah...just an FYI that I'm just a hobbyist not a professional who's going to sell anything based on your work. 

Thank you for the inspiration. I decided to add a row of stitching to the folded over edge of the wallet. The originals

are about 5-6 oz leather and this is probably 3-4. It'll keep the edge looking nicer longer.

Not a problem. 

 

I think it looks great.

 

Thanks,

 

Noah

I have no connection to this vendor, but I'm intrigued:

Has anyone bought from him(?)?

The top two are from Chester Mox. The bottom two are bespoke from Argentina. All are Horween. All are #8 except top right which is black. I also have the top left in tobacco but it is not pictured.

These look great. How do you like the argentian leather compared to horween?
