    We've never heard anyone complain about USPS. They're probably your best bet.

    If your order were over $1,000, I'd say we could ship UPS / FedEx Canada Consolidated. More reliable and with tracking, but the customs can sometimes be higher.

    order placed. Though I don't think the 12 socks I ordered had the 10% discount so i'll email you the order ID.

    Guess i'll post back if theres any brokerage fees but as an experienced online shopper I would not be surprised If i got them, that is just the way of life for us canadians.

    It's possible that any additional discount codes knock out the Free Shipping (technology issue we've been unable to solve for some time). Just pay for shipping, respond to the order confirmation, and request that we refund it.

    As everyone on our email list already knows, we're currently running a Twelve Days of Christmas email campaign showcasing unique products we've sourced especially for the holidays.

    Anyway, one of the items we just added are some Ettinger Bridle Leather wallets that are absolutely spectacular. Thought you all might be interested.

    [​IMG]

    A customer recently was chatting with me through the website about his thinking on wallets. Although the stock Ettinger wallet is absolutely beautiful, he brought up a few really interesting points.

    1. He hates bulky stuff in his pockets. I do, also, which is why I use a money clip instead of a wallet (although I'll probably take one of the Navy wallets for myself after the holidays). He suggested modifying this wall to not include the internal money divider in order to make this wallet even slimmer. I totally agree - great idea.

    2. He recommended adding the wallet in RED because it's the best way to get a waiter's attention when you need the check and want to leave. Again, I totally agree. I would have never otherwise considered a red wallet, but with this narrative, I might just end up with one soon.

    3. He uses a different, even slimmer wallet formally. Fascinating. Again, I've never thought of using more than one wallet. Normally if I'm going out formally, I'll just take my drivers license, AMEX, and a few 20's and stick them in my pocket. But he has a totally second wallet for this purpose.... which made me think... what is the perfect "formal" wallet? Criteria would be as slim as possible.

    So, this has ignited my interest in collaborating with Ettinger to develop a custom wallet(s). Any additional suggestions?

    I can definitely vouch for the quality of Ettinger stuff. I got an Ettinger x Saira Hunjan oxblood wallet, card holder, flask and keyring a few months ago, and all of them are awesome.

    Kirby, glad I looked at your thread today. This is actually something I've been searching for. First, I completely agree with both you and your customer. I hate bulky wallets, and I have taken to use a slim card holder and carrying cash separately.

    I'd add these comments:
    1. I travel a lot, and I've taken to the habit of only carrying things in my front pockets for security reasons. So for me, a full sized cash-carrying wallet is too big.

    2. I also use different wallets for different purposes. Part of this has come about because, in my search for what I want, I've purchased a few and have extras to do this with. Mine are split roughly between home and travel us.

    3. The most important features to me are the ability to carry two to three credit cards in easily accessible slots, a bank card in a hidden pocket, and an ID (driver's licence) in an easily accessible outside slot pocket. To me, the gold standard for this type of wallet is the Louis Vuitton Pocket Organizer. A friend had one, and instead of buying one myself (as I should have), I've been trying to replicate it.

    4. I had a custom wallet made by Nicholas Hollows (on this site), using the LV as a model. It came out terrific Here are some pictures. It's much less formal than something you would make, I think. I would love to see a more formal version of this or something like the LV.

    Gentlemen -

    Thank you for posting pictures. I'd expecting nothing less from the men on this forum. :

    kmdsimpson - for your travel wallet (the LV one) - is there anywhere for cash? Or would that be kept separately?

    Honestly, I suppose that it isn't that important that something like this be able to carry cash. For one, cash is being used less and less. At most, I have a few 20's in my pocket. Second, if you really are trying to minimize the footprint of one's wallet, then you could always carry cash in separately altogether. Cash is really the bulkiest component of a wallet, yet it can be easily relocated to an independent pocket.

    I think I am going to look into having the current style modified to remove the inner divider (pictured below):
    [​IMG]

    And then look into having one similar to the LV Pocket Organizer recreated.

    Let me know your thoughts...

    Kirby,

    No room for cash. I carry it separately. I think the dimensions of a wallet that holds cash - not just thickness, but also width and height (usually in the 3" x 4" range) are too large. The LV Pocket Organizer is about the perfect size to fit into a front pocket. Or like the size that Don L posted, as well.

    Just my personal preference.

    Kirby,

    Wanted to say that I received the Parker Razor I purchased and was very pleased with it! I was looking at this one for the longest time and this Parker has scratched the itch without the financial impact! For $30 plus shipping it was almost a steal!

    Consequently, I was trying to leave a product review on your site and for some reason the review form refused to appear. I am not sure if it's working appropriately.

    Just FYI and thanks again!

    MZHammer - I am happy that I was able to prevent you from wasting money on a $200 razor. It's sad what Gilette is doing to The Art of Shaving. I recently saw them release a vibrating badger brush?!? I mean, who was the marketing idiot (or genius) that thought of that! A vibrating badger brush -- like that's supposed to do anything.

    A great example of how a multinational marketing conglomerate continues to sterilize the enjoyment of shaving.

    Also - I do not see any pending reviews from you. Were you logged in when submitting? If you email me the review, I'll try to post it manually. I really appreciate you submitting a review! They are very helpful to us.
