I love that watch! Has anyone seen phone covers in exotic leather? I have been looking for something unique to add for awhile.

Thread necro. Having a tidy up and just thought I would post a few photos of some wallets and accessories I came across:

Deadstock 50s French hand saddle-sewn wallet:





Vintage wallet, probably 20s or 30s





Mark Cross passport holder / travel wallet:





Another pre-war wallet, this time from Mappin and Webb:







The jewel in the crown, unused Cartier coat wallet and matching jotter in a stunning burgundy:

I have a pigsin wallet with a very similar interior to this. Id dated it as 40s - 50s but maybe its earlier than I thought. Interesting!

Very nice indeed, two baby crocs by the look of it, hand stitched too. Where are you finding these? Great collection!

Hermes wallet quality is insane. The leather, saddlestiching on all stiches, skivving to make the wallet as thin as possible, and finishing is soo nice. Probably one of the best quality wallets in the world...but admittedly still overpriced.

Here's mine. mc2 Copernic in matte alligator in blue marine...reminds me of xenomorph skin.

Something old and something new.

The new is a Hackett alligator wallet that has me impressed with the quality of the skin, the use of alligator for the interior, and the overall construction quality (machine sewn, but leather lining to the note section and all very neatly put together).

The old is a crocodile grooming kit from Garrard which contains a nail file and small comb, both set in sterling silver.

The Hackett wallet looks surpassingly good. Are the card slots silk lined or full alligator? Nicely chosen and cut skin

The card slots and coin purse are silk lined, and the billfold section is leather lined. Like you say, I'm impressed by the intelligent choices on which corners to cut when making it to a price.
