    I'd love to discuss thread diameters more... could you share the exact diameters of these two threads? Very curious!

    Just received a new item from Parker (well two but only had time to photograph one).
    Barenia 35mm belt with nickel buckle and rose contrast stitch.
    As always very nice and the barenia leather is just oh so soft

    Glad you like it @coldinboston !

    I've added another picture to show off the contrasting thread a bit more, and a couple of the small case.

    This a very nice useful case.
    We did use some of the blue nilo from a prior project for accents. The inside pocket also has croc accents

    Here are some quick cell phone pics

    Hi Parker,

    It was a pleasure for my wife and I to meet you and see your wares, in person. There is an order in my future-what do you consider your best leather? I liked that black bull leather.

    Hi there @gyasih ! It was a pleasure to meet and chat with you and your wife as well. You both really liked that shrunken bull calf! It's probably my favorite, aesthetically.

    I have a total, crippling bias to use Chèvre Mysore for the interior of wallets, but I've mentioned that relentlessly, so it's exempt. My favorite leathers to work with are French Box Calf and Buttero - both are fun to craft, and do what you want them to. My least favorite to work with is stingray - it's like trying to cut through sheet metal with a popsicle stick.

    Honorable mention goes to Ostrich, which no one orders, ever. Definitely a unique leather for wallets - especially when the quills have been plated (so it doesn't look like cowboy boots.)

    Is the cardholder for business cards or credit cards? I'd like a slim holder to take to court instead of my bifold for my ID and a few basic cards.

    The croc card holder i received from parker i use for my ID, license, and a couple of CCs. I carry it instead of a wallet esp when wearing a suit. I suppose you could always use it for business cards as well.

    How well would a frequently used wallet, card holder, etc. hold up in the Chevre leather? Sorry for the questions, but am really interested in your products, we can take it to PM, if you prefer.

    Where do you store your cash then? A separate money clip or folded up in one of the card slots I assume?

    Most cash resides in my wifes wallet/purse.
    In terms of what i have in mine is usuallu 20dollars or so folded in one of the card slots. I rarely have to use cash anywhere i go. Usually pay with card or through my phone.

    Nvm, my order was refunded without any explanation. The card case will have to wait

    Thank you for the questions - I'll shoot you a PM.


    I haven't heard of one of my cardholders actually failing before, and I've been making the design for a few years.

    Usually, one of the fallbacks of cardholders is that one day you'll overstuff it. Not because you want to, but because it just happens, and you stretch the card slots a little bit.

    This happened to me with a non-folding design a couple of years ago. The day after I slimmed down the stack I was carrying, I lost my I.D.

    Ever since then, I've carried this style of cardholder. When closed it's nearly impossible for a card to come loose, even if you've stretched out the pockets a little bit.

    @Jr Mouse - I do the same as @coldinboston

    I carry 6 cards, a few bills, and a business card. It can handle more, but it will obviously change the form factor proportionally.
