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!

You answered your own question. You're right, we don't kill horses for their meat. That's why any production of shell cordovan is a byproduct of horses that died due to other reasons. Kind of explains why shell is so expensive! Additionally, each horse only produces a small quantity, and finally, it takes a long time to tan properly. But as far as leather goes, shell is absolutely worth it. It's gorgeous and insanely durable.

British Belt Co are not the very best in terms of build quality (if their belts are anything to go by) but it is more than serviceable. For a wallet with a shell cordovan exterior, this drop is a steal.

For those wondering Drop confirmed that the material used in these wallets "Thomas Ware pit-tanned leather" is cordovan shell. https://drop.com/buy/the-british-belt-co-thomas-ware-leather-cardholder/talk#discussions "Sorry for the wait here. Yes - this is Thomas Ware & Sons pit processed Cordovan Shell outer and Italian Full-grain Veg-Tanned inner. The plus here is the unique Thomas Ware & Sons tannery pit process which is an older, more times-taking method that takes in excess of 15 months.  Check out their website: http://thomasware.co.uk/our-leather-process/ This is a very special leather, arguably even more luxe & durable most cordovan"

My understanding is that these kinds of wallets are for people that end up putting them in the back pockets, only to end up being pick pocketed.

Indeed. No branding is key. I have a few other shell products like shoes and watch straps. I’ve had the wallet for about a year I guess. It looks brand new with everyday use.

is it actually hand stitched like they say? from the pictures it looks machine stitched; which for the price is understandable...i just have noticed that Drop has a tendency to say that things machine stitched are stitched "by hand" because someone uses hands to operate the machine

Inside definitely is not, but the outside looks like it. Wonder what kind of shell it is, i.e., Horween, Comipel, etc. Also unfortunate it didn't drop sooner as it could have made a good Christmas gift.

It was confirmed by Drop to be shell cordovan at least on the trifold version of this wallet. The description is the same so this is almost certainly cordovan shell. https://drop.com/buy/the-british-belt-co-thomas-ware-leather-cardholder/talk#discussions Sorry for the wait here.

This is good price for cordovan bifold wallets. But I wish there are other color choices, since I already have black and burgundy versions.

Ah yes, just what I needed. A $100 wallet to store my fistful of $1 bills and receipts from 3 months ago.
