    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think that will will be as close a match as you would get, variations between dye lots and individula hides aside, since both companies use Horween leather. Apparently, the other shell cordovan colors are dyed by Rancourt itself, but the natural shell is straight from Horween.

    $1950 and a few hours to go. Let's see if we can't get this to $2K. Anyone?

    There are 2 vendors that we are waiting on, so there may be up to 10 or 11 auctions left!

    Next up will be a custom wallet of your choice from @Deusis , of www.guardedgoods.com. Essentially, the wallet is MTO, and any leather combination he has in stock is up for grabs. We will then do some accessories over the weekend, and then do @David Reeves U.K jacket on Monday. A set of four (4) Individualized shirts from @Drinkwaters will follow on Tuesday - so a special head's up to you Boston peeps like @rydenfan . I haven't thought much beyond that!

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The hammer drops at $2K. So awesome for everyone, and please, everyone, thank Brett Viberg for his generosity. Congratulations @z8k1n . Please email me at styleforum.net@gmail.com for further instructions.

    Amazing. I'll bring up the tally and the next auction (more shell cordovan!) in a bit.

    Hmmm... I don't remember. But it's in the 2014 Styleforum Gives thread. I will look it up, but maybe someone can do my homework for me?

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    if my chart-checking is correct, we got $14134 from the auction last year, not including donations from other sources.

    That sounds high, but it's possible, since we had several after Christmas. I thought that it was $14134 including the contribution from @SpooPoker . That would sound more in line with what I remember. But let's beat a total of $15K! Bid on the auctions here. Bid on the luxeswap auctions!

    possibly. that was the last number you publicly stated at the end of all auctions and you said you hoped to reach 15k in a few days (assuming from other sources).

    Auction 10: MTO Shell Cordovan wallet from Guarded Goods.
    Ends Saturday, Dec 12, 2015, 12 p.m. PST (aka noon)​

    Let's start the bidding... now.

    This is a special auction for a special Made to order (MTO) billfold wallet from our own @Deusis of Guarded Goods

    From our conversation:
    a custom bifold from my website. Any and all leathers are up for grabs, including some of the more rare colors I have a small amount of on hand such as Ravello Shell Cordovan from Horween (probably only enough for an exterior in this though). We could do a full shell cordovan bifold with 4 slots (this style but in full shell). Customer could customize. I have lots of shell options available on my website from 4 different tanneries."

    Here are the parameters for this custom made wallet:
    - Bulwark Bifold
    - Exterior Leather (Shell Cordovan options available here, Standard Leather optionsavailable here)
    - Interior Leather (Same as above)
    - Thread Color (Natural, White, Brown, Black, White, Green, Navy, Red)
    - Edge Finishing (Wax Burnished or Painted)
    - Number of slots (2, 4, 6, or an ID window)
    - Option of adding hidden slots
    - Option of adding stitching around entire interior and exterior
    - Include or exclude logo. Can add a monogram as well.

    Retail: Up to $450 for all the bells and whistles like the maximum number of slots, painted edges, and hidden pockets. Essentially enough to hold your entire G-roll.

    The bidding will start at $200. Pleae bid in increments of $20.

    Here are some pictures of the Bulwark billfold:
