Anyone familiar with this Valextra card case?

    Barney's in NYC carries Valextra but I'm not sure if they sell them online. You can try calling them i guess

    Thanks. I'm familiar with those, and the issue is that they are significantly larger and therefore not ideal for a front pocket. There is the business card case, too, but the gusseted pocket means that stuff falls out since it ends up being pretty loose in there. Maybe I'll go through all of the options in-store at Barney's here in Chicago or otherwise in NY next time I'm there.

    Update: managed to make contact with Valextra's flagship boutique in Milan and they were only too happy to sell via phone/email. Very nice to deal with.

    that's a fantastic looking Valextra case. i just bought a Valextra wallet myself (from Barney's SF and i confirm nothing that looks like that was in stock), and i kind of wish that i knew this was an option

    Thanks. Just arrived yesterday and am very pleased. It's worth noting that the colors seen on www.valextra.it are exclusives for the online boutique but they make that case in their standard colors as well. As of last week I know they had black and navy but assuming they have others as well (I only asked about a few color options).

    If you ever decide to look at others then there are two things I would suggest:

    1. Look at the Japanese online store (www.valextra.jp) and www.modern-blue.jp (no idea if it's legit but they show a lot of styles not available online elsewhere) because there seem to be a lot more styles to view online for Japanese customers so you can see what's out there and get the style numbers.

    2. Order direct from the Milan flagship boutique, since they have everything. If you're thinking of doing that, shoot me a PM and I'll give you the working email address (one on the site doesn't seem to go anywhere) as well as the name of the person I dealt with there.

    Hi, do you mind sharing the email address and the name of the person from the boutique? Thanks a lot!
