Shell Cordovan Wallet Pron - Page 16post #227 of 89912/13/12 at 3:15pmQuote:Originally Posted by Ashlandleather
Definitely Kreis from Germany. They're pretty expensive it seems! http://shop.kreis-ledermanufaktur.de/index.php?id=4&no_cache=1
That does look nice. Perhaps this wallet from german Manufactum is made by that company?:

Recently got 3 cordovan wallets, 2 from Ashland Leather, 1 from Gore Range Leather co.
Both Phil@Ashland Leather and Rick@Gore Range Leather are easy to work with.
They both did an excellent job!

Loving this. I saw it on the Chester Mox site after reading the beginning of this thread, and am seriously considering buying it.
Serious question: How do retailers/manufacturers justify such high prices for these? Maybe I'm misunderstanding the cost of the shell itself, but it seems silly for a wallet to cost $400+, when Horween-sourced cordovan shoes can be had for ~$600 when buying directly from Carmina.
Edit: Also, I've only recently considered a key case/wallet, and I can't seem to find any online. Would a regular leather crafter be able to make one of these without too much trouble?post #236 of 89912/18/12 at 11:14ampost #237 of 89912/18/12 at 3:35pmpost #238 of 89912/18/12 at 4:04pmpost #239 of 89912/18/12 at 10:28pmpost #240 of 89912/19/12 at 2:30pmThread Starter
