I ordered the 3 pocket version in Tobacco Pueblo and I must say it is beautiful. I have received many compliments since acquiring it, and find myself admiring it often. The leather and craftsmanship are both very high quality, especially at this price point.
I do note that it took 4 weeks to reach me after shipping, when I was expecting it in 1-2 weeks. Not the fault of Leatherbound, and I am still very satisfied with my purchase.
The quality of the wallet is something that I could have seen myself buying in the past years, but at this price it was something I had to try. I would normally buy bifolds but this wallet is doing the trick and it is doing it well.
This wallet is sexy
I had a lot of questions and requests for pictures that Silas was kind enough to answer. He will also fulfill any customization requests to the best of his ability.
Although I needed a new wallet I didn’t expect to feel so oddly happy about in person. Really enjoy it’s construction and color choices.
For $40 this wallet feels absolutely worth it especially for something handmade. Can and will recommend to my friends and family.
Absolutely wonderful service, at a very competitive price. Leatherboundink was very helpful in choosing leather colours/combinations. Once ordered a clear waiting period was given, which was held to. The shipping was expedient. Product was flawless on arrival, I hope it lasts this way for a long time!
The wallet was exactly what I've been looking for for a while now, the quality is out of this world, I'm almost disappointed I won't need to buy anyone soon. Shipping was super fast from Taiwan to Canada too!
love the money clip design! the blue & yellow combo turned out better than expected in person. Shipping came to canada within 2 weeks!
I found this product on a social media platform. The owner answered my questions quickly, and I was impressed with their products. It was the right time for me to spend more on a homemade, professional, and long-lasting wallet. I look forward to not having to get a new wallet every year or two for a long time to come!
I spent the last month or so looking to find a beautiful portfolio for my S.O. and ended up on Leatherbound. In that time, I've conversed with the Silas with over 20 emails. From our conversation, I can say that he is a professional, both with his quality craftsmanship and with his communication detailing suggestions and responding to the needs that I wanted for the portfolio.
While I finalize my order for a custom portfolio, I ordered two passport covers. One with a whisky buttero exterior and natural buttero interior and another in rose buttero exterior/interior. The quality is very high and amazing for the price point I have paid for. The rose buttero was also leather that was not in stock and custom ordered and was perfect for my S.O.
In the end, I'm glad I found this website and feel that products I received are at a quality and price point are in a league that is untouchable for a larger-scale leathermaker. They feel like they are made to last and each of ours feels so personable and unique.
Thanks for these one-of-a-kind passport holders. It gives me no excuse not to travel now!
I asked Silas on reddit how they would recommend securing some keys to a wallet and they recommended something like this. At first I was a bit skeptical on the key hardware but I love it! Not only that but the quality of the wallet is just amazing!
Well constructed from a good leather. Customization gives the wallet an edge compared to others at price point.
This is the ultimate form of the 5-slot cardholder wallet. I love that you can see how it’s made on the blog, and it looks wonderful up close.
Cards stuck in the slots at first, but loosened up after removing and replacing a few times. The centre pocket opens fairly easily by pinching the sides. Comfortably holds my 5 cards and ~6 bills so far. Cards seem to bend outwards slightly regardless of how much or how little is in the centre pocket, but I expect the pockets will loosen up a bit with some wear.
I ordered a minimalist wallet with a special request to use a leather not available on the website. Silas was quick to respond that they could make it for me! The wallet is even nicer in person, and the quality is very good. Shipping to Canada was also quicker than the outlined estimates, as my wallet arrived in about 2 weeks time. Would absolutely recommend, and will probably be buying more in the future as gifts! Thanks.
I love it. My only criticism is that the slots for sliding the passport in are too long. The passport cover gets bent putting it in and taking it out.
I commissioned a minimalist bifold after seeing one in the ready-made products that had already sold -- the owner was happy to make me an identical one. I just received the wallet today and looks every bit as amazing in person; the construction is flawless and the material is beautiful. Can't recommend this operation highly enough, you won't be disappointed!
Amazing quality and communication
I was looking for my next wallet after my previous one totally fell apart. After hunting around, I reached out to Silas who was super professional, responsive, and sent me all the pictures I asked for of different leathers and colors (there are so many options!).
The quality of the Shell Cordovan and the Pueblo leather on this wallet is astounding. But, anyone out there can buy top quality leather. You need a great leatherworker to turn it into something special. As soon as I opened the awesome packaging, I knew the craftsmanship was something special. It's super slim, holds all of my cards (9 in total) and a few USD bills comfortably. The stitching and edge work are finely finished and I can tell this thing will last me for years to come. It's the sort of quality you just can't get from machine-made and large production goods.
I will most likely be ordering more for holiday gifts and definitely telling all my family and friends about it.
Details were good, no flaws. Fast replies. This is my 2d wallet from leather bound. I ordered with no hesitation.
Received the wallet yesterday. The leather feels amazing, the cards fit in effortlessly and just a wonder to look upon. The stitching is fantastic as well, would buy from again if the need ever arrived but the quality leads me to believe the wallet will last me more than a few years.
Received my first wallet from him yesterday, very glad I ran into him to make my wallet. Ordered another one before even reviewing the first one. Very good workmanship overall l. Quick customer service as well
I worked with Silas on getting a custom order. Nothing in the inventory was quite what I wanted. After a couple communications, the order was confirmed. The actual product exceeded my expectations. Its a beautiful piece and it will be used extensively.
After receiving and using my Minimalist Bifold I can say with confidence — this is an exceptionally made item that is well worth its price. The bifold is as handsome in person as it is on the website.
The feel and look of the stitching and leather is superb.
I was looking for the slimmest possible wallet to replace a Bosca that fell apart too easily, and this exceeded my expectations. It absolutely disappears in my pocket.
Not much break-in was needed. This is a beautiful piece and worth every penny. The look, feel, and even smell is amazing. This was my first purchase, but will certainly not be my last. There are some amazing color options, and I plan to request a custom piece soon.
It is also worth noting that the customer service is fantastic. Silas was very helpful and answered all questions and concerns quickly and politely. I have been recommending this site to my friends, as well.
