I have always found that it can be difficult to find a well-made wallet. I had more sense than to spend $1500 on one in some boutique in Paris. I was appalled by the thought of wrapping my hard earned money in vinyl. Finally I appreciate well-made products with an artistic touch.
I used to buy a wallet every few years. It looked fine at first, but soon time took its toll. The stitching started to fail. The nylon lining started to crack or fray. What I thought was quality leather started to fall apart and soon the wallet looked worn out. It was time to move on.
It can also be difficult to find the right style of wallet. I have had wallets that were too simple and lacking enough room for the basics. Others were too bulky and cumbersome to be useful – remember the George Costanza Wallet?
I wanted a wallet that did what I wanted it to do – so I designed my own … for the Classic, Refined Man.
A brilliantly designed special pouch fits your business cards, cigar cutter or your hotel key.
It fits just the right amount of cards, bills and receipts. Its cash area is wide and tall for both American and Canadian bills. You don't need anything else.
It’s made it from luxurious semi-gloss cowhide. Unique, masculin design. Hand-stitched accents. Available in three colors - Natural Tobacco, Maduro Brown, and Oscuro Black. It will look better the more you use it – like an old saddle.
Stitched with marine-grade thread. It's pockets are lined with soft yet durable full grain cowhide. Aside from the stitching, it is completely made of leather. No plastic windows or low-class fabric linings. Quite possibly the last wallet you will ever choose to own.
Some simple things were done to extend the durability. Most wallets have painted edges that chip and crack over time. Instead, we wrapped the leather over the edges, then stitched it tight – a finishing touch that will pay off over time. Your cards fit vertically into the sleeves. This allows for a more compact, intelligent design.
It feels and smells like you are sitting in a Bentley. Maybe a leathersmith's shop. It will transport your mind to a different time.
