I’ve watched a lot of people switch over to the Essex from chunky bifolds and have heard many George Costanza references as they make the change (for a few years I sold a slim bifold and most folks preferred this style to that). The Essex has been a best seller since day one and is probably the most accommodating with six pockets. It has a slim profile for all that it can hold!
Once broken in, the Essex will hold at least 15 cards + some cash.
About the Leather
Mahogany and Black leathers are both English Bridle. They won't require much oiling as long as they're used regularly.
The Natural is a straight vegetable tannage. The leather is oiled before it's sewn so it's ready to be used right away, but could do with some coconut oil here and there to help the patina darken. Keep in mind: the natural will darken as you use it! It will not be pink forever!
Everything here is done by hand, including the sewing — all wallets are sewing machine free. I saddle stitch by hand, using two needles on either end of a thread. All leather is US-sourced cowhide. There are finished edges on the Mahogany and Black, and a raw edge with a light burnish on the Natural. Thread is a flat poly braid from Europe. Haven't seen a poly stitch break yet, but I'm happy to resew if you pop a stitch.
If you wish to monogram this wallet, please choose the option from the menu below. You can choose up to 6 letters, numbers, and &./ which you will be able to include on the checkout page. The fee for monogramming is $12.
