    Yeah! It's quite the bummer, really. Mine can really only carry 3-4 keys which is kind of a pain, haha. But it's darkened up so nicely over the last year I can't help but keep using it. It was originally a really bright garnet and now it is a dead ringer for color 8 (pictured at the end with my color 8 Stronghold by GG).

    Nice collection. I think personally I would have gone with a lighter color again. Mmmm... whisky.

    Got in a couple wallets, both made from 1 piece of Italian shell.

    First off, a whiskey Alstad Forsta 1.2+ LTD (the '+' being for the addition of the card slots at my request - the maker says this may become v1.3). This normally comes in a pretty cool perforated design but I opted to go smooth due to the slots.

    https://alstadgoods.com/products/ltd-perforated-forsta1-2-green-shell-cordovan - this wallet is shown in a dark green shell, but also note that it comes in this whiskey shade as well as 3 shades of red, black, and north of cordovan (at a significant discount over regular shell).

    The pictures are a shade darker than it appeared IRL, unfortunately at the time San Diego was in perpetual June gloom so this is the best daylight shot I could get when it first arrived. An IG post from the maker which is more representative of the color when new: https://www.instagram.com/p/BVtSCSolzok/

    Next, I have a purple Offene Mere Gun Deck. This is actually in a reverse config as I'm a lefty.

    Side-by-side, the Forsta w/ about a week of wear next to the new Gun Deck.

    The Forsta will be my main wallet, the Gun Deck is cool but not as practical, just got it as I love the funky design. I really love the Forsta... it's pretty much the perfect bifold wallet IMO - it's rather slim being one piece of shell folded over twice... essentially 6 layers of shell total, with only stitching on the edges. You can carry a surprising amount as well due to the accordion effect of the design.

    I'll upload more down the road once they both have some good patina in.
