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.
I love shell cordovan...it kills me that the mid tier vendors can rape people on the price for mediocre quality. I do leather working as a hobby and up to now have stayed with gunbelts, holsters and the occasional hand sewn briefcase but started making some minimalist wallets/card holders. 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.
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.
I have no connection to this vendor, but I'm intrigued:
Has anyone bought from him(?)?
These look great. How do you like the argentian leather compared to horween?
