First Splurge! ON a shell cordovan wallet! (Advice etc)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone,

This is KenjiKen and today I am splurging on a Shell Cordovan

wallet! My recent wallet has been outdated and after looking

on the forum- as well as doing my own research, I have compiled

a list of wallets that I am looking to purchase. Give me your

feedback!

 

First wallet is a shell cordovan bifold. I'm not

a huge fan of the bi fold but I have heard some

good reviews of it. 

 

Here's another wallet, perhaps my favorite!

Found from this website

 

Here's a chester mox shelll cordovan flap wallet (

a lot cheaper than the Makr one)

Here's a cordovan stitchless wallet? Never heard of them

found from https://theleathershop.com/

 

Here's another one I found- not digging the color scheme,

but it definetley looks different!

Also found at http://blog.dalucastraps.com/daluca-straps-horween-chromexcel-and-shell-cordovan-wallets/

 

Okay, it's either this one or the first one!

What are your guy's thoughts?

I'm a fan of the 2 wallet method. Card case for cards, billfold for bills. both as slim as possible to keep from accumulating junk.

Leffot Fold for bills (daily use for about a year, the cordovan has aged really well, I use mine inside-out, so the silver stamp can be seen without having to open it) http://uncrate.com/p/2010/10/leffot-fold-wallet-xl.jpg

Makr angle wallet for cards (in Kangaroo, which they don't make anymore, because of how thin the leather is compared to cordovan. it has also aged really well after 2 years of daily use)

Pick a style that works for your needs. My pants are too tight to have anything bulky.

Hello master player!

That seems quite sound, a seperate

case for cards and for bills. I know what you mean,

I wear slim fit chinos, and skinny jeans so bulky

wallets can be a pain sometimes.

and here it is from a different view

Overall impressions: It works great for cards. I keep my ID

credit cards and what not in it. It's slim and also shell cordovan so

I've noticed it "breaking in."

 

More coming up soon.
