Slim Design - Fits great in a suit coat or blazer pocket. Ladies, this leather wallet is also a nice alternative to the Big Wallet when you’re looking to travel light or just making a quick trip out. This wallet will not fit a checkbook. It seems like it might, but it won’t. Checkbook spines are too thick. If you try to mash a stack of checks in this wallet, the spine will prevent the wallet from closing properly.
100 Year Warranty - Have your great grandchildren talk to my great grandchildren and we'll fix it or replace it for free. Only for 100 years though.
Industrial Thread - Stout industrial marine-grade Polyester UV-resistant thread. It’s used for airbags, sails, work boots and other heavy-duty applications. So it should keep leather wallets together just fine. I ought to keep an extra spool in my truck for towing.
Fully Tanned Leather – Good tanneries remove all natural oils and preservatives from the hide and then replenish them with high-quality synthetics and oils. Then they soak and tumble it for up to twenty hours until the new colors and oils reach the middle. Cheap tanneries only tumble them long enough to color the surface and leave the middle to dry up and crack. The exposed, unfinished edges on these wallets shows the full tan.
Leather - 100% hypoallergenic Full Grain chrome tanned leather. And, our leather isn't “buttery soft” (fibers separated and broken down by hours of tumbling and stretching at the tannery). It’s your job to tenderize the leather wallet over the years.
Construction - This wallet is made from as few pieces of leather as possible. Seams are the weakest point and so the fewer the better. It would be much cheaper for us to make it with lots of smaller pieces, but it's the quality details such as this that separates my wallets from lower quality wallets.
Thread - The double zero continuous-filament Polyester thread we use is a little thicker than what is used on most boots. It’s impressive and expensive, and pretty rare on handmade leather wallets. Common thread is made of short little fibers wound together into one long thread. This thread is made of long continuous fibers that won't fall apart in a strong wind. Polyester thread is also the only thread I know of that doesn't deteriorate with exposure to the sun like Nylon or Kevlar.
How can I get my spouse to understand that I need this?
Here's your rationale: Buy the best, cry once. It's all about the cost per year. In college, I bought a pair of very expensive shoes for my job as a waiter. I couldn't afford them, but I bought them anyhow. They were really light and comfortable and took me through two years of waiting tables and one year as a limo driver and another year of occasional use. And then they still looked good for a month of Sundays. Cost per year was about $25. Most of the other waiters bought a new pair of $55 heavy and uncomfortable shoes every 6 months because theirs wore out and looked ratty by then. One of the principles the successful in the world understand is this: If one buys quality from the start they save money. Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish. This will be one of the most savvy investments and inexpensive leather pieces you'll ever have. And remember, you must truly love yourself before you can love others. A couple of other things to think about you'll be more popular. Everybody isn't buying one. I'll invite you to my birthday party. What's wrong, you chicken?

Are the animals tortured before they are slaughtered?
Absolutely not ! With some pigs we do use waterboarding and sensory deprivation techniques previous to slaughtering them, but the cows do not require any special handling.
Where can I see one of the bags in person?
I don't have any of the items in stores and we're not big fans of folks coming to our home in San Antonio because of the weirdo factor. My sister, Patricia and her husband (my Chess and Scrabble nemesis), send out the leather from their place near Ft. Worth, Texas, but again, because of the weirdo factor they're not set up to show either. If it helps, everyone tells me that they look better in person.
How much do they cost you, Dave?
Well, I lived for three years in a $100 a month apartment in Mexico with no hot water, because of these bags. My dog, Blue, and I drove for thousands of hours all over the North American continent because of these bags. I had a crooked Federale sent to kill me because of these bags (I convinced him that Señor Alarcon would never pay him) and we became friends). I've shed gallons of blood and tears and sweat and at least a quart of other people's, because of these bags. I've slept in my car or on the rack of my old Land Cruiser at least 150 times because of these bags. I've lost weeks of sleep and have gone hungry for days because of these bags. I was broke for years and even had to trade two of Blue's little puppies for a month's worth of tacos in order to eat because of these bags. I've been detained by who knows how many Mexican police because of these bags. I've thrown away thousands of dollars and made hundreds of mistakes because of these bags. I've been stolen from, taken advantage of and robbed because of these bags (they even stole Blue once, but I got him back). All of these things and more have happened to me because of these bags. They cost me a lot.
Best Slim Leather Wallet you can find!
I searched everywhere for a lady slim wallet, online and in store. Most lady wallets are thick and chunky and has coin pouch. I wanted a simple leather wallet without the coin pouch and it was soooo hard to find. Most slim wallets available that is actually thin are not made out of leather. I even looked at the luxury brands such as LV, Gucci..etc. The closest one I came across was in the LV store, but it costs around $500 and it wasn't thin enough for my liking. Most shops suggested me to get the men's wallets as they don't have the coin pocket and are thin. But I didn't want to carry a men's wallet. FINALLY I decided to get this one. I LOVE IT! It is so simple yet elegant. People have commented on how special this wallet looks, and I love it even more because no one else has it!
Good basic wallet
This wallet is gorgeous and looks very sturdy; I was able to fit around three cards in each slot but the wallet is new and I'm sure that it will stretch over time. The dark coffee brown color is a little darker than pictured. The design is classic enough to work as a ladies' wallet.
As usual, great product
I've been carrying this slim wallet for several months now. I was concerned at first that it wouldn't hold enough cards. Turns out it holds 4 in each pocket. The length is great and I like the tab for closure. Great product as usual.
