Very impressed with the quality of the wallet and Shell Cordovan. The craftsmanship is top notch. Silas was great with communication throughout the process. He even agreed to use the more marbled pieces of the shell to get the look I was after
I initially ordered this wallet with a burgundy exterior from Leder Ogawa and ortensia Pueblo leather.
However, after some pleasant back and forth with Silas, I ended up choosing teal Buffalo leather for the interior instead, with thread matched to the interior.
I am very pleased with the quality of the final product, the deep burgundy is gorgeous while the teal of the buffalo adds a nice contrast, the leathers are in excellent condition and you can easily tell that both the Cordovan and buffalo is of formidable quality.
The construction is nothing short of excellent, the cut of the leather is flawless, and the stitchwork impressive, with some nicely painted edges, and subtle embossed initials. I have absolutely no doubts that this wallet will outlast me (with proper care of course).
I found the utility of the Compact Bifold style to be perfect for some one with a minimal amount of cards and bills in their wallet at any given time (Though I believe Silas can accommodate a couple more card slots if requested). The wallet fits well in my inner jacket pocket without bulging out and is overall a great size for suits.
The ordering experience was also a point of pleasantness, communication from Silas was great and he really helped me narrow down the final selection of leather for the interior, when I initially had some doubts about what to go with.
I can highly recommend ordering from Leatherbound, and I certainly will be ordering wallets for family members in the future.
I ordered a minimalist wallet made out of blue sharkskin. I was surprised at how great it looks in person, super eye-catching. The stitching and craftmanship is also really well done and feels like it will last a very long time. Silas was also very responsive on Instagram and answered all of my questions/recommendations! Would absolutely recommend and will buy something again in the future.
Outstanding customer service quality, quick communication, flawless return process. Highly recommended.
Nice and kind service and really delicate money clip wallet. I would love to order again and recommend to my frd.
My boyfriend’s wallet was peeling, filled with holes, and barely intact. Though I was quite impressed that it still held his cards and coins, I think it was obvious that a new wallet had to come into play. Silas worked with me from start to finish — providing sample photos, checking in to see what I wanted, sending progress photos. The wallet is a little thicker than his prior wallet, but I think that’s due to the fact that he’s been sitting on the other one for over 10 years now. Color, quality, & feel are all amazing! If he made bags I’d commission him for a backpack, but for now I’ll have to settle for at least ordering another SLG in the future.
The material and quality of these wallets are top notch. The layout of the vertical wallet perfectly meets my needs, and cards stay in place yet are easy to access. The wallet is made so well. From order to delivery - met expectations and I couldn’t be happier. I’ll be ordering again in the future.
Beautifully crafted and high quality leather material! I love the texture and the perfect size for a bifold wallet. Silas has been very patient and helpful throughout the whole process as well. Definitely recommended!
Absolutely beautiful work!
High quality materials and work. Love the texture and easy communication. Solid product
It looks and feels clean. I like that classic leather smell to it as well
Silas was very receptive about custom requirements that I had and worked it into the design of the wallet. He also furnished me with images when he started on my wallet. Fantastic workmanship. Really happy with it!
Excellent experience and excellent product. Silas personally helped me with the design and created a personalized custom wallet at an amazing price.
Silas has been awesome from beginning to end with the commissioned wallet. The wallet that I have received is gorgeous and I have received many compliments on it. The packaging is also very beautiful. Even after using it for about 2 weeks non-stop, the smell of leather is still there and amazing. The handfeel is very luxurious (saffiano leather) and the closure is very strong so I didn't have to worry about items falling out! Once again, thank you Silas for such a beautiful product.
Love the minimal look and feel of my monochrome orange wallet. Small durable and hopefully will last me years ! Thank you so much !
The wallet is really nice a little bit on the bigger side. But all in all great for fitting some cards and folded cash. Silas is very talented and his work reflects it, top notch quality something you’d expect out of very high end brands. I’d recommend asking him about the different colours you’re thinking about as the leathers have different characteristics. 10/10 would recommend
Silas did an amazing job with my commission. The leathers feels amazing, the colors are rich and the craftsmanship is top notch. The stitching, edges, and everything looks great, couldn't have asked for better. Silas worked with me to select materials and stitching colors from a post I saw a while back that wasn't immediately configurable through the page and it was really easy to communicate with him and get exactly what I was after. Now my wife is jealous and wants one too!
Silas is very throughout this whole process. He suggested what looks good for the wallet. After the wallet was shipped it arrived in the US in no time, very nice packaging. Will definitely do business with him over and over.
Quality top notch, Silas responsive, the packaging beautiful, the leather exceptional.
Stop shopping around. I am not kidding. I am someone who values quality and can justify spending a little bit more for something that I know is made well and with good intentions. I can promise that is what youre getting when you commission a wallet from Silas. A professional, skilled craftsman who truly provides a work of art that will last for years and become even more beautiful as that time passes. My wallet took a little while longer because there was an unforeseen problem with the leather that Slias worked on diligently. I would rather have my wallet done right as opposed to done right now. If you are someone who appreciates craftsmanship and pieces with personality, you truly need look no further.
This is the second custom piece Silas has made for me. The first was a small card holder and this was a notebook cover for an A5 size notebook. The style perfectly matches the card holder and Silas even prototyped a new style of pen holder for me. I let him know the general idea of what I was looking for but also relied on his expertise to suggest what he felt would work the best. The order was made in the estimated time given and shipping was surprisingly quick to California. I'm already thinking of what to get next.
Silas was very helpful and worked with me to customize my wallet to my specifications. I am extremely happy with the final product. The quality and craftsmanship are exceptional!
This stretch out version of Vertical Bifold fits all international currency folded once yet remain looking compact and slim. Love the leather combination of Chocolate Chèvre and Tobacco Pueblo with accent Epsom leather. Beautiful wallet, Excellent workmanship, Highly recommended!
I ordered this wallet as a birthday present and was not disappointed. Silas was great in communicating with me about shipping and making sure I got the wallet on time. The wallet came out flawless, even better than expected. I’m very happy with the whole process and will be back for more.
