Let's take @Michigan Planner's example, gentlemen. If we hit $1750, I'll personally throw in a pocket square so that you can look extra #pitti. You know you sorta want to do it.
(and now you'll have an excuse).post #161 of 68412/4/15 at 5:28pmThread StarterQuote:

Auction 5: A Suitable Wardrobe Russian Reindeer Passport Holder or Pocket wallet
Ends Sunday, Dec 6, 2015.5 p.m. PST
Let's start the bidding... now. The following auction will be a 48 hour auction and will end Sunday at 5 pm PST.
As some of you may know, A Suitable Wardrobe was recently acquired by @kirbya, of The Hanger Project, probably the original business born on the forum. Kirby tells me that he is committed to the same extremely high quality accessories for which A Suitable Wardrobe has always been known. It's probably one of the few places I knew of that stocked an Astrakan. Not sure what I'd do with it, but it was cool.
This auction is for one Russian Reindeer Passport Holder OR Pocket Wallet, winner's choice (https://www.asuitablewardrobe.com/russian-reindeer-passport-cover.html or https://www.asuitablewardrobe.com/russian-reindeer-pocket-wallet.html)
What is "Russian reindeer"? So glad you asked.
From A Suitable Wardrobe:
Due to its rarity and uniqueness, G. J. Cleverly 1786 Russian Reindeer leather is normally only available through our bespoke service... except what you see here on A Suitable Wardrobe. On December 10th 1786 a storm forced the Metta Catharina to seek shelter in Plymouth Sound. She had been bound for the Mediterranean with a cargo of hemp and leather from the Russian Port of St. Petersburg. The Catherina broke free and was blown towards Mount Edgecumbe before sinking. The crew were able to get ashore but the ship and its cargo were lost - until almost 200 years later divers found a ship’s bell on the sea floor. Further investigation revealed bundles of hides littering the sea bed. They were remarkably well preserved after two centuries of immersion in black mud.
Since those hides were retrieved, many hundreds have been brought to the surface. They have been tanned the traditional Russian way, which involves soaking in pits of willow bark and currying with birch oil. The process gives them a very distinct aroma. Most of the hides have been cross hatched in the grain embossed by hand. The famous ‘Russia’ leather is renowned for it’s ability to resist water and repel insects.
What we have here, then, are items of extreme rarity and historical value. Ain't no small timer carryng their passport through security in leather from the Metta Catharine.
Let's start the bidding at $350. The minimum increment on a bid will be $20. Please announce bids on this thread. If you wish to be anonymous, you may PM me, and I will proxy the bid for you.
Important note: The bidding will not end if there has been a bid in the last 10 minutes, regardless of time. So, for example, if there is a bid at 2:59 Monday morning, the bidding will go on until 3:09, and if there is a bid before or at that time, the bidding will continue. Essentially, sniping is not going to be effective. It's for charity, y'all.
Here are some pictures to make you all weep and bid generously and often:
