    Does anyone here know of some one who does an eyeclass case suitable for a shirt pocket? I'd like one in chromexcel.

    Anybody out there make nubuck belts? I need something to go with a pair of sand suede chukkas that have been languishing in a shoebox and need to see the light of day this summer.

    Notepad/folder holder by Renaissance Art Leather. This one is about a year and a half old. I chose it because of the look and because it offered storage. You could easily fit a 200 pages of printer paper in this with no problem. On the left it has 2 large pockets for folders, and 3 small pockets. There is a 3rd large pocket under the notepad. I recently placed an order for a second one and it should be delivered soon. I am told they now use a slightly lighter (thinner) leather - my current one weighs 39 ounces completely empty.

    Great little thread here which I've only recently found due to workload preventing to much SF participation these days.
    I am always interested to see comments about leather artisans and their great work as we all need a leg up occasionally from the dedicated followers of fashion found here on SF in bucket loads.

    Not a good place to purchase anything but Tandy has some decent instructional videos for beginners. I buy a lot of items from Springfield leather.

    Hi, Jin here, I have been using unlucky's belt for a month now and loving it throughly. I ordered a 16 oz, lined with black stitching, with the stainless steel buckle, made of Triple C harness leather. Unlucky is a pleasure to do business with and the amazing thing was he didn't even charge me until the belt was complete. Love it with my jeans but with shorts i should really be getting a less thick belt as the buckle sticks out. looks great on jeans; not so much with shorts. [​IMG]

    Just a warning: I had the WORST customer service experience I have yet to have online with Makr. When I called to have them take care of a simple customer service problem – the the wallet I had ordered was undelivered because the apartment number was dropped by the computer program – they accused me of trying to "scam them"and refused to send out a new one while they waited for the return of the misdirected one. When I complained that this was not the kind of customer service one would get with guilt or Amazon, they said "we don't need your business we're doing fine."I have never experienced such a lack of customer support and arrogance. They said I was free to order a new one and that if the other one came back to them they would credit me for it- NOT the way to do business! The supervisor literally called me a "liar" and used an expletive in describing what I could do with my business. They may have attractive items on their website (though I have never seen them firsthand) but their attitude does not deserve your hard earned dollars. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY AS THEY ARE CONTEMPTUOUS OF THEIR CUSTOMERS!
    BTW this is the first time I have ever posted a negative review of a company online and I have been buying for years.

    I cant remember the details, but I think someone I knew used one as a tobacco bag when I was a kid.

    I actually got a shell cordovan one about a week ago and really like it. I moved my blockbuster, cosco and grocery store cards into my car. Everything else fit into the flap wallet with room to spare.

    I'd get in touch with Jason (Jason@makr.com) for more info regarding availability and colors. It's not much more than the regular Horween leather wallets, which are pretty tasty themselves. pekklemon — what color was it originally? Was it from his site, or is that one of the cordovans? Actually Rosenberg, if you wanted, you could contact nick@horween.com, I just looked at the stuff over at Horween's, and the stuff is very nice, and some of them might be shell cordovan, and you'll have a better idea of how they look as they have pics. Plus, let us know what they say.

    Just got mine in a chocolate brown / tobacco finish in cordovan. Sent the payment Thursday, Here's a pic of the box: The wallet: Inside (note the Horween stamp): Depth: Size compared to a bi-fold wallet: It looks so good. I know it'll look even better after a couple of weeks of use. BTW, just in case anyone's interested, here's the wallet I'm replacing.

    I have the Makr Slim Kangaroo leather wallet - apparently, 1 of 15 in the world. I love it. Holds about 3 cards, 1 ID, and some cash easily.

    Hi jasonzz! The Makr wallets are very nice but way too expensive! I wanted to buy one too but I changed my mind when I found an online shop selling similar products: atelierpall.com, but at very reasonable prices. I bought one a couple of weeks ago, and it is great! The leather is nice and the construction is solid, and for a few extra dollars I had my name engraved on it too! Not to mention the customer service is impeccable! They answered to my e-mail almost right-away and agreed to make the wallet in my favorite color. This is what I bought: http://www.atelierpall.com/wallets/classic-flap-wallet-in-oxblood/ but in chestnut brown. I totally recommend this brand!

    North Star Leather. Discovered them thru a great deal of research into American handmade leather artisan goods. Natural leather is not an option on any of their items but I emailed them and they happily obliged to produce a bracelet, card case/slim wallet, and long trucker wallet in an open grain natural leather for me at no additional charge. The quality is top notch. Here are the items brand new. I'll update with wear. The long wallet is already picking up some slight traces of indigo from my raw jeans. Love these guys stuff and the prices are BEYOND competitive![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
