Hi Evan. We can’t reply to your post properly as it appears that you’re no longer here as a user, but I’ll try anyway. Thanks for your purchase. We truly do use 100% Full Grain Leather. The best for any leather product out there. The leather has to be somewhat thin, in order to produce a functioning wallet (too thick and it won’t close, etc). We believe, based on other feedback, it’s a proper thickness.
We wish we could have tried to address the money clip issue, but it appears too late....the clip is mechanical in nature and due to use, etc could fail. We do replace them at no charge if/when needed.
The actual clip is glued in place, you are correct. Not sure how else we can secure it...but open to suggestions. We rarely receive any negative feedback on the fact that it’s glued, sorry that doesn’t work in your favor here.
We do try to respond to all comments, positive and negative. I’m sorry you had a negative experience. If there is anything we can do, don’t hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order # included.
