When you buy something made from quality full grain vegetable tanned leather, you're buying it for life. And you can be sure that while it will last a lifetime, you can also be sure that it will never look quite the same. Natural leather like this is almost akin to a blank canvas, it will change and develop "patina" as it ages, the color will darken and richen as it absorbs the oils from your fingers and the indigo from your denim.
It's been a long time coming, but here is the newest wallet design, fresh from the Pigeon Tree lab! I wanted to create a wallet that resembled a trucker wallet, but didn't stick out of your pocket or feel cumbersome. I believe this wallet is the perfect balance between a standard bifold and a mid-sized trucker wallet.
This particular model has been carefully and selectively tanned, creating a "tan line" design. This will be interesting to see age, because one half of the wallet will always be darker than the other. At some point it may become so dark that the line is invisible, but that will take many, many years!
6 side-loading card slots, 2 top-loading "hidden" pockets which are easily accessible even when closed (perfect for stuffing receipts) and a full-size billfold slot, plenty of room for you to burn a hole in your pocket with. Edges are hand burnished with natural bees wax. A stitched-in solid brass snap keeps the wallet closed, and will patina with that classic "bump" through the leather.
All wallets now come with wallet lanyard rings, but the loops are easily removable so let me know if you don't plan on using a wallet lanyard, or you can remove it yourself with a couple of sets of pliers. Dimensions:
