Been playing with some photography a bit so here's my @Deusis's custom color 2 horween shell wallet he made for me almost a year ago now. I use this everyday and it's developed an incredible shine. Thanks again man!

Not necessary wallets but... deal with it.

 

Rocado SRL Emerald Green Shell Cordovan Women's Clutch Wallet. Super beastly wallet. Really thick and heavy. I need to stitch up the bottom corners so it stays shut a bit better.

 

 

Finished up some 22mm watch straps this weekend as well. Black Rocado SRL Shell and Natural Shinki Hikaku Shell.

I got a restock of 4 shells of Horween Natural Shell Cordovan last night. That is always a good night.

Incredibly fun project to do and I'm pleased with the results. Let me know your thoughts!

 

 


A little late to the party, but the album was immensely enjoyable to look through, cheers!!

I've had tons of requests for a wallet with a money clip in it and I've had it on my list to make for the longest time so I finally did it on Friday. I'm very pleased with how it turned out and expect to make this a regular item I make. If you have any additional recommendations for changes... let me know! I made the prototype out of Horween #8.

 

Things I would change in the future are I think I might make it about .5" wider. It is easy enough to get the cards out right now but I think an extra .5" would make it even easier. I'd also extend the stitching on the exterior from around the card slots all the way to the stitching to secure the money clip. It would make it a bit more cohesive I think.

Right now I am testing out the prototype and have 10 cards and 5 bills and it is still quite thin (~.4" thick). I'm thinking this will be my go-to style for my own personal use going forward. I'll probably make it with an exterior of Horween #4 and interior slots of Whiskey shell cordovan.

 

 

 

I also just received some Horween #4 Shell Cordovan in so I'm excited to start some projects with that to share.

Have a friend looking for this exact thing. Will pass along.

And in honor of Viberg's release of their Horween Reverse Black Shell Cordovan Service boots... I thought I'd do a makeup in my money clip wallet. Turned out really well, I think!
