    Thanks buddy. If I can find out a way to get some of that money back. :)

    beautiful wallet nonetheless. i'm tempted to buy the blue-red combo.

    Wait so the billfold is supposed to be $150 not $200?

    sounds like it is. there's no reference so it's hard to call up customer service and tell them as it is.

    Can the pocket on the billfold (wallet) function as a business card holder? I don't want to buy a separate item for this. Thanks

    I think they fixed the pics, otherwise I will have a billfold, that I don't want, coming my way when it ships.

    Said I would get $50 credit back to my card :slayer:

    Technically BB still owes me like $5 for tax and additional shipping but I guess it saves the hassle of going to a store when I get out of school

    Yeah called. Lady on phone said I got breast wallet and not billfold. I explained the situation and she said I needed to go into store. I said it's the same deal regardless as the system had an error. She asked for manager approval and I got the credit back. Apparently someone called earlier today as well with same situation

    that was me earlier also. I really tried to explain to her but was having a hard time. I didn't feel like spending more time and decided to go to the store. Just called back and she said it's okay. Will credit back $50 so all is good!

    Good to hear. I probably would have gone in store if I was home but no BB near me in Indiana

    Thanks

    Long breast wallet is supposed to be $200. None of the items I got have the inner markings, just the logo

    did anyone purchase the coin pocket wallet? can i have the measurements? is it the same size as the regular billfold wallet?

    as for the inner "Oil Shell Cordovan. Handmade in Japan" marking, it seems that these wallets are the newer version and the marking is on the inside bill compartment. furthermore, from the web pics, the older wallet marking shows "Oil Shell Cordovan and French Leather?..." whereas the wallet I received only specifies that it is Oil Shell Cordovan.

    So i still had most of the wallets in my cart from a while back, though their status are "not available", but I'm seeing some price drops

    $70 for card case
    $120 for bifolds
    $160 for breast wallet

    Maybe this would carry over the next time they have some restock, just an update.

    Edit: Could one call Customer Service and ask for credit back if they havent charged your card from this drop?

    Especially those made from shells that are not sourced from Horween.

    Maybe I'll check to see if the store will give me my $40 + tax back

    It's a sale item, no way they should be giving you back store credit. I doubt it will be restocked. If you really wanted the wallet a few bucks shouldn't be the deciding factor for you.

    I didn't imply that $40 is the deciding factor to keep or not, if you are referring to me, since you quoted myself and Jchance. I'll keep or don't keep based on need.

    My order from a few days ago was just updated as out of stock. If anyone wants to part with the navy/red card case, I would be interested.
