    With all this Horween wallet talk. . .someone has to pick this up:

    MYTHICAL SHELL CORDOVAN COLOR #4 WALLET:

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/67847666...-cordovan-wiry

    If I didn't already own ten wallets, I would have bought this one myself!


    Wow, not cool! Looks like someone completely copied Jason @ Makr designs. I'm going to send him this link.

    For those that don't know... makr.com. Had my shell #8 Flap wallet for a while now. Love it.

    From the look of it, he has been copying MAKR designs for a while now. . .even been selling them on eBay for a long time.

    You are a real classy guy, aren't you?

    yeah, reading his posts I dare say he's probably not troubled with complex thoughts.

    You a banker? Either now or in a previous life? Serious question.

    yep, these are today's Alden Fans

    These Whiskey 9905's look a little sterile right out of the box. Need some creases pronto.

    Is it worth it because it's Horween or is it overpriced because it's Horween?
    Overpriced? I don't think so, which is why I bought it. Compared to most designer wallets this one is reasonably, if not modestly priced. The difference being that the Whitehouse Cox shell wallet is constructed of the highest quality leather in the world by a company that has been doing it for nearly 150 years. Go check out the Louis Voutton, Gucci, and other overly branded wallets and I will show you overpriced. By the way, Pebble, I feel ya man...

    This is what you come back with for me calling you out for being a generic SW&D prick? Um, ok . . .

    Thanks for sharing your opinion. I am observing a lot of products that are hanging on by a inserting a branded component into their design. Some recent examples: Oak Street Bootmakers, MAKR, Quoddy, etc. Take away the Horween leather and the products become much less desirable. Thoughts?
