    BB sent me the wrong wallets. I orders the billfolds but instead received the breast wallet. The billfolds and card case reappeared online this morning. Was able to snag a couple. Hoping to receive the billfolds and not more breast wallets

    The shell used is some of the best I've handled. The look and feel of it feels luxurious. I looked closely at the white and red shell and didnt spot a single blemish or defect. Also the the construction is top notch. The edges are finished with an appropriately colored wax/plastic solution.

    Anyone else own a cordovan wallet? I've been in search of one for a while. Below is a list of companies that make she'll wallets:

    Brooks Brothers
    Brooks Brothers Black Fleece
    Allen Edmonds
    Palmer Trading Co.

    Am I missing anyone?

    I bought a BB bill fold one at the Xmas sale have been coveting it for a while and the price was right so bash the plastic and very happy with the purchase.

    Could you post pics? I'm interested to see how the leather ages. I recently purchased an AE #8 card case and love the way it's aged over the last few months. I think Cordovan leather is particularly suited for wallets because the extended contact with various surfaces allows it to develop a gorgeous patina is relatively no time.

    Jcrew has some as well made by Bucktown.

    Btw, what color did you get? I've got the b/w card case and, hopefully, the b/w billfold on the way.

    You could probably request a shell cordovan wallet from any high end leather goods or shoe maker. The only issues would be price and whether or not they'd even be willing to work with SC in the first place. I've seen pictures of a Whitehouse Cox SC wallet on these forums (and boy was it beautiful).

    Makr has some as well as a bunch of other Hoween stuff (both CXL and shell)

    Corter Leather does a little, you could probably custom order one
