    *Thread

    Matching thread to the lighter colored leather is generally recommended (except in the case of exotic leathers, where matching the thread to exterior is preferred). For more contrast, consider off-white or gray thread. Note: As item is hand-sewn, thread color will be the same on both exterior and interior.

    Standard font is limited to capital letters only (max 2 of the same letter). The old style font is smaller, but more expansive allowing for upper and lower case letters as well as numbers and symbols.

    Initials will be stamped in the inner bottom right corner for folding items and in the front bottom right corner for non-folding items, unless specified otherwise. For items with the mini pocket addition, initials will be stamped in the center.

    Please note that foil show may premature wear compared to the rest of the item.

Design & Capacity

  • 6 card pockets
  • 2 hidden pockets
  • 1 cash pocket
  • Best suited for 6-14 cards + cash

4 & 8 pocket versions also available under ‘Additional Options’

Construction

  • Hand sewn using the saddle stitch method
  • All edges are finely creased and polished to a smooth finish
  • Cash pocket and hidden pockets lined with leather.

I employ both burnishing and hand painting in my work. I will choose a suitable edge treatment depending on the leathers chosen. If you’d like a specific edge treatment, please add your request to the order notes.

Materials

  • World-class French, Italian, or Japanese leathers (according to above selection)
  • Polyester thread for superior abrasion resistance

Water-based glue is used to glue edges and lining. After edge burnishing or painting is complete, a paraffin beeswax blend is applied. Reinforcement used with Chèvre Crispé and Sherpa interiors to prevent stretch and reduce bulk.

Dimensions

  • Height: 8.6cm (3.39″)
  • Length (when folded) 11.2cm (4.41″)
  • Thickness (at edge) ~0.76cm (.3″)

Listed capacities are a rough guide to help you choose a suitable wallet. If no wallet suits your desired carry, I’d be happy to discuss making a custom wallet for you. If you need further recommendations, feel free to contact me.

Note: Cards and cash compete for space in many of the wallet designs, so carrying at or near capacity for both cards and cash simultaneously won’t be possible.

Shell cordovan classic bifold

Product came as expected. It’s hard to go back to regular leather goods after using leatherbound product, especially at this quality and competitive price point.
