That does look nice. Perhaps this wallet from german Manufactum is made by that company?:

Love that bifold. Are the card slots made from 2 solid pieces of leather (one on each side) or from 6 total pieces (3 on each side)?

From what I see, should be from 6 pieces

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?

That gore range bi fold. Is it branded in anyway? Is there a horween stamp in the bill fold?
post #237 of 447

Why are people buying so many fucking wallets?

 

Don't wallets last for decades?

Do you move your shit between different wallets depending on mood/occassion/dress style?

I do. Only swapping between two at the moment though. One for the weekend and one for the weekdays.

There is no brand name/marking on and inside the wallet.

The Horween stamp is inside the large bill compartment.

Kolecho ravello shell wallet after about 4 months. Can't say that I'm all too impressed with the quality but I do get compliments on it all the time. Love the design though. Note the use of the single piece of shell for the card holders.
