    I have an LV wallet right now, and am thinking of replacing it next year. I've had this one for like 3 years and it's served me very well and is in great condition, but I'd like to get something else.

    Anyone know a brand that will do tan ostrich leather? Alligator isn't tough enough for everyday wear as I'm told.

    If you want something really special and custom made, you should contact Yann at ABP (http://www.abp-paris.com). He'll make the perfect wallet to your exact specs and with the exact hide(s) you pick

    John Woodward (near San Diego) does quite a bit of work in ostrich leather. You might call him to discuss your exact needs.

    Beatrice at April in Paris (in San Francisco) makes some lovely items. She apprenticed at Hermes.

    I've visited both shops and seen the work of both artisans. While dramatically different, the shop owners and their work are top notch.
