Horween® Shell Chain Wallet No.9
Our classic "Long Wallet" is made from Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan, quite possibly the finest leather in the world. This is a special wallet in a special leather. The "Marbled Shell" option is a very unique and a limited finish, while the color#8 and black are timeless classics.
Each wallet is individually embossed with a unique serial#, then saddle-stitched completely by hand with imported Spanish thread. The edges are carefully beveled, sanded, stained and waxed to give them a smooth, rounded edge. The unlined body was designed to outlive the "traditional" wallet, with a 100% Shell Cordovan body. After finishing they are hand-waxed on the edges and polished before shipping.
The inside is a custom design with six card slots, a bill slot large enough for all domestic & U.S. currencies and a cut-out large enough for documents, bills or a checkbook. Designed with custom Italian hardware and a detachable, premium solid-brass chain and belt keeper.

GENUINE HORWEEN® SHELL CORDOVAN
Tanned In Chicago, IL Since 1905
Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan is quite possible the finest leather in the world. Unique in many ways, shell cordovan is known for it's extreme durability, extraordinary bright luster and glass-like surface and the rich cordovan aroma.
The entire tanning process goes through around 100-processes and takes a full 6-months to complete tan, making this the ultimate "Artisan Tanned Leather". Cordovan is more than just a color, it is a very specific leather from the "butt" of a horsehide. The oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished over six months.
Each shell is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors then hot stuffed & slicked onto glass frames to dry. They are hand curried and shaved by highly skilled artisans to expose the shell and the dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by fine craftsmen.
