Perhaps it's the price point.

I can look into a less expensive interior. I was going to have the liner/interiors made from scratch, but I may be able to get a 'stock' interior and fit the custom laser etched outer shells to them.

There's a company in Missouri who produce ready made interiors for wallets. Nice things.
We'll be more limited as to design and size choice, but it will bring the price down by a decent amount.

OK, here we are.
I spoke with the supplier in Missouri.

Of the limited selection of designs, sizes and colours available from stock, these seemed to fit the bill best.
They are 'Vintage', distressed leather, Buffalo hide interiors, made in the USA.

These are Trifold with an ID holder. They fit bigger bills than a standard wallet, so are good for non-US clients as well. Lots of card slots as requested.

For me, the Vintage Tan Buffalo is best, as it goes very well with the tones of leather I tend to stock, whiskey and vintage whiskey colours.

This will bring the wallet price down to around USD$100 plus shipping.

Thoughts?

To be honest, I am not a great lover of trifold wallets but I am willing to
sacrifice utility for aesthetics :D Still on board for one.
Badger, what are the dimensions of the new style?

'Off the shelf' interiors, although very well made and of good quality, severely limit your choices.
You have to use what they have.
I felt these suited our needs best.

Closed dimensions: 3-3/16" x 4"
Open dimensions: 9-3/16" x 4"

I have a sinking feeling that, even though we're talking about a small run, hand made, custom laser etched, Oak Tanned leather, themed wallet for a hundred Bucks, this may all be academic anyway....

I know a local Browncoat who was interested the last time I brought this up.
I'd count her as a tentative.

You might not be wrong :(
But if it helps you can put me down for 2 (two) wallets with the above interior.

Bronson, I appreciate that but would rather count genuinely interested parties.
I can't go ahead with a run of tentatives...
If the Browncoat is interested I'll be happy to add them to the list.

Fanfromthefirst, I'll put you down for 2 wallets for the time being.

Still, no new interest here. Not looking good.


1. Fanfromthefirst x 2 wallet
2. BronsonBB x 1 wallet
3. Tertius x 1 wallet
4. dsears30 x 1 wallet

OK, public opinion seems pretty clear on this one.
I'm not going to spend any more time or work on this. I feel it's a lost cause.

Thanks to those who showed interest.
