The quality of the wallet is stellar. In comparison, other soft leather wallets would wear quickly. This wallet seems to me to be a more permanent selection. I often find myself noticing the subtle leather odor when I am active with the wallet, which adds a layer to the purchase, if you enjoy fine leather odors. I have not had any issues with object placement and retrieval of cards are smooth and separated. Out of a lifetime of wallets, this one is by far the best I have used and hope to use for years to come. I will be looking into other BBC products as well. Made for a lifetime, is what I am interested in.
