    #1 prices are more than Japan
    #2 No Green Cordovan

    End of story.

    Ashland does green. And if you aren't willing to pay Ashland's entirely reasonable prices, I don't know what to say.

    My eyes must be going.
    I looked over their site and I could not see a green wallet, in Cordovan or CXL

    I picked up a custom billfold from Ashland. They were a pleasure to deal with and I am excited for the final product!

    Did you end up ordering the wallet? If so, how do you like it and how is the quality? I was thinking about getting that exact wallet from them.

    I ended up getting a custom Johnny the Fox from Ashland. I love the quality (and smell) of the wallet and overall though it was pricey it's something that will last me a decade or more.The wallet was even boxed nicely and came with a little leather keychain. Excellent presentation.

    Here are some pics that Phil sent me (not of my wallet, but the colour is identical...my Horween stamp is perfectly centered :D).

    I am hoping it will lighten up a bit in time!

    Just came across this - what color is that Johnny the fox wallet? is that Cognac?
    How are you liking it after a few months?
