    Also, there is a very high end bespoke bookmaker near the Hurlingham Polo Club in Buenos Aires who can get shell directly from Horween.

    So is there something wrong with the older one, hence the reason for the new one?

    I should have been a bit moe clear. Both wallets were made for me bespoke in Buenos Aires at the same time. I asked that he make two so that I could have a replacement ready but the "old" one is still in great shape so it will be a while before the "new" one gets taken out of the bag.

    Just placed order for Little New York in black cordovan. Can't wait for this minimalist wallet. Phil is a great person to do business with.

    Lost my BB cordovan wallet (with all my IDs in it) a few weeks ago. Cancelled, replaced everything finally, but now need to find a new wallet.

    The Leffot fold just seems a bit too minimal in that I am afraid I would lose cards everytime I needed some cash. Any recs for something similar but with a pocket for cards?

    Deals running today only for shell. For some reason my last post got marked as spam. Sorry!
