Shell Cordovan Wallet Pron - Page 14

post #196 of 452
And here it is. The final photo shows it with a dozen cards jammed in there. If my smartrip card scans through the back, I think I've just bought my last wallet.

It's their brand. I could've opted for plain -- but since this is one or two guys in an old factory rather than MultiNationalMegaCorp, I'm fine with it embossed across the front of the wallet.

Namor, they are all Horween. I took the Horween shells to BA to have the wallets made there.

How many cards fit in one slot? I usually carry 6-7 cards total.

Im in talks with David Mitchell of Mitchell Leather. Trying to get a kind of inverted one. 

 

Natural Cordovan with Brown CXL Interior (or possibly the golden wheat cxl, but i kinda like the contrast from the outside to the inside).

 

In addition, I've requested just their standard small emblem rather than than the whole big emblem they use for horween stuff. It just seems a little overbearing in the large emblem.

Right now I have three cards in each of the four slots. It's handling them just fine; the CXL stretches appropriately.

I think you'll like it. The man is very easy to deal with and quite enthusiastic about working with good leather. The emblem doesn't bother me at all but I agree that a smaller one might be more tasteful.

That wallet looks really thick. What do you think about the thickness?

post #207 of 452
it is really thick, about double the thickness of my previous wallet, but suprisingly in pocket it is pretty comfortable and soft.. does not feel like you're sitting on a rock

Just got this custom piece in black marble shell from Phil at Ashland Leather. Love it. Best customer service experience I have ever had from first email to delivery. Thanks Phil!

I've been enjoying this wallet for the last few weeks.  It holds my phone and the few cards and cash I like to have on me. Pretty slick

The Wallet to carry the minimum. 

I ended up purchasing this through fleabay which holds 3 Cards Credit/whatever a nice concettina  section which will easily hold some folded cash and some loose change.
