    How would you guys carry cash (US Dollar) in this Chester Mox wallet? It doesn't fit very well folded in half. would you just fold it 3 times and slip it into one of the bottom slots, or just sammich it in between the two sides? And tips would be great.

    pretty much what you said..

    just store your cash in the ------> side pockets like you said. keep about 10 seperate bills. any more than 10 will cause bulkiness.

    for easy access, fold 10 bills seperately and organize it. that way you can just count how many bills you need when the bills are inside side pockets without pulling the entire cash and unfolding, count money, folding , putting in the side pocket.

    Hey there! Just started leatherworking about two months ago. I've been working with Horween Chestnut Dublin lately. This was for a recent sale.

    Got my HF CXL wallet from Chester Mox. It's a really dark green.
    Although, it doesn't seem to stay aligned very well, is this because the "spine" of the wallet is so soft? Any ide how to avoid this?

    Was just introduced to this thread and i have to say you guys do some amazibg work.

    dibadiba, have you considered opening a small business just as a secondary income source? Your wallets are excellent and that bag looks like absolute sex.
