Oh, oh--I forgot to mention!
For all those who see everyone else here going gaga over the use of "Shell Cordovan" in these wallets, but don't actually know what Shell Cordovan is (but who would like to know before they send MD a hundred clams), I suggest you ask these fine fellows--who, as it turns out, happen to be experts on the subject!
All of which begs the question: if we Americans don't eat horse meat (they do elsewhere, but it's actually illegal to slaughter horses for meat in the US), then why oh why, would be keen to kill them for wallets? At least with a cow, you can rationalize that we kill them to make BigMacs, and that the cowhide we use for other stuff, was just the byproduct of a cheap lunch--at least that's the way most people look at.
But horses? Tsk, tsk!
