Shell Cordovan Wallet Pron - Page 46

post #676 of 875

Also thought I'd share a photo displaying the variation in the reverse side of Horween Black Shell Cordovan. It goes from very dark green/blue to almost a light brown.

What was the consensus from the reddit ama? Is the reverse side just as resiliant as the finshed side?

There was this video or blog post from Horween I believe a bit ago about washing the shells and how they use the same water over a day, so as the day goes on, the water gets darker and darker so the shells with lighter backsides were usually produced earlier in the day and those with darker backsides around the end of the day. I thought that it was just such a cool thing to be able to see and notice.

I remember the video but can't recall where I watched. It may have been twitvid (dead link).

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!

 


Can't wait to see how that reverse shell ages. I'm not that big of a fan but always nice to see funky makeups!

 

Also @Deusis, I'm curious, how many shell wallets have you kept for personal use? :smarmy:

Some very nice cordovan wallets you made @Deusis. Is it possible to order a custom made wallet?

Just curious, what's your turnaround time on average?

It will be just as resilient but whether it will hold its color is TBD. I am of the opinion that the darker colors will hold. I know some other people think otherwise.

3 - 4 weeks usually.

Haha, great question. I have only ever made 5 shell cordovan wallets for myself.
