English Bridle Leather Wallet

English Bridle Leather Wallet
The "English" Bridle leather used for these wallets is tanned in the U.S.A. I'm using it to make some of the same styles as the calfskin wallets. This Bridle Leather makes a more firm wallet than the Calfskin Leather. The light color is a little darker or lighter than the way it came out in the pictures depending on the batch I have in stock. Other bridle leather colors are shown on the Bridle Leather Belt page.
I expect these wallets to break in with a more leathery look and to darken more with use. Since this is a new offering... you will have to let me know about that in a few years.
When I handle it, it makes that noise you hear when stepping into the saddle, that leather against leather noise. Wallets #1, #2, #3, measure 3-5/8" X 8-3/4" when open. Wallet #4 Measures 8-3/4" x 4-1/4" open and 4-1/4" x 3" closed.

Style #1

Six card pocket wallet, two center pockets and bill compartment.

Wallet style #1 shown in Dark Brown Bridle Leather.

Style #2

Slim Fold, four card pockets and bill compartment.

Style #3

Six card pockets with folded edges, two center pockets and bill compartment.

Style #4

Three fold wallet with folded edges, three card pockets and bill compartment.

Style #5

Bi fold mens Hipster Bridle Leather wallet with three inward opening card pockets on each side plus one long pocket below. Large full size bill compartment in rear. Each of the card pockets will hold at least 2 cards. The idea here is to spread the cards out over a larger area for less bulk. Measures 4-1/8" x 8-3/4" (Wallet shown is in Lt. Brown Buffalo calf leather)

That's what's used for the calfskin wallets... Gold foil? That isn't what this leather is about. lets just brand these! No fancy foil, lets just burn it in!
