    Brian, my belt guy could probably do some cool wallets...not sure if he has yet that I know of. I know he's doing some custom stud/jeweling work for my buddie's gf's leather purse straps right now so I don't see why wallets would be much different. I might see him this weekend so I'll ask if he does any wallet work and get any relevant info.

    Wild Swans, eh? Anyone have pics or know of a homepage? A Google search turned up a bit of randomness. Thankfully nothing to do with menstruation.

    www.wildswans.co.jp They have them in the natural (pale) leather that the Red Moon wallets come in.

    Refer here to get an ideal of what Wild Swans has to offer: http://letgoasyoulike.fc2web.com/leather.htm
    Wow, thanks. I think I like the overall look of Red Moon better. Wild Swans has amazing presentation and I don't really know anything about how they're made, but they seem a lot more minimalist and I'm not big on the logo stamps. Red Moon seems to have more character. Of course, that's a very uneducated opinion. By the way: of the Red Moon wallets, is the light saddle-leather the only leather in which you see a dramatic change?

    They're two different takes, really. The Wild Swans stuff has a more luxurious edge to it, while Red Moon is all about being rough and tough. Both of them are really serious though. You could always get a WS coin purse and a RM wallet, or vice versa. [​IMG]

    i can get wild swans if you guys want them, but it won't come cheap!

    i'm probably getting a spanker, but i'm just having trouble with what color to get. black will match everything else, the choco is a beautiful color, and the natural is too light for me but it will turn to a nice color down the line.... ah choices.

    you know, a holiday like this is probably setting you back a bomb. how do you stop yourself from picking up an item each time you go shopping for someone else's stuff?

    That's exactly what I was thinking with my Red Moon wallet. Black matches, however the tan will be soooo beautiful. Sigh...I'm getting this in saddle leather:

    They're an exorbitant amount of money (which I'm sending you right now, as I'm sobbing) and we'll never speak of this again.
