    BB sent me the wrong wallets. I orders the billfolds but instead received the breast wallet. The billfolds and card case reappeared online this morning. Was able to snag a couple. Hoping to receive the billfolds and not more breast wallets

    The shell used is some of the best I've handled. The look and feel of it feels luxurious. I looked closely at the white and red shell and didnt spot a single blemish or defect. Also the the construction is top notch. The edges are finished with an appropriately colored wax/plastic solution.

    Anyone else own a cordovan wallet? I've been in search of one for a while. Below is a list of companies that make she'll wallets:

    Brooks Brothers
    Brooks Brothers Black Fleece
    Allen Edmonds
    Palmer Trading Co.

    Am I missing anyone?

    Could you post pics? I'm interested to see how the leather ages. I recently purchased an AE #8 card case and love the way it's aged over the last few months. I think Cordovan leather is particularly suited for wallets because the extended contact with various surfaces allows it to develop a gorgeous patina is relatively no time.

    Jcrew has some as well made by Bucktown.

    Btw, what color did you get? I've got the b/w card case and, hopefully, the b/w billfold on the way.
