Rated 5 out of 5 by ClassyDresser An extraordinarily beautiful wallet
This is the first cordovan-anything I have ever owned. What an INCREDIBLE wallet this is! I bought the black. I have handled cordovan shoes, but this wallet is even nicer than the very expensive cordovan shoes I've checked out. The wallet is shockingly smooth - like glass. It is also beautifully and meticulously crafted.
I have invested enough $s into high caliber business blazers and suits and I felt that the time was right for me to have a long wallet for the very first time. Quite honestly, I feel wealthy when I handle this wallet, especially when using it with my blazers. It truly makes me feel like a 'gentleman'. What a *very* classy accessory.
Yes, it is expensive, no doubt. But if this is the time for you to own what appears to be the best, or among the best, of long wallets, well, you are sure to derive much satisfaction from this one.
I trusted the reviews of others here and their reviews were exactly on target. To those before me here, "Thank you!".

In February of 2012, I wrote a review of this outstanding breast pocket wallet as well as its companion pieces; the business card case, the money clip and the billfold. All of these cordovan leather goods remain in my possession today.
With on-going use and enjoyment, hey look and feel as they did over two years ago. Now, admittedly, I do own one piece of this set in each color and continue alternate these leather goods based upon the color of my shoes and watchbands as all well dressed gentlemen should…but, nevertheless, these outstanding accessories have stood up extraordinarily well and continue to be a source of pleasure and pride. A Brooks Brothers gentleman always attend to the smallest details in his appearance. Wallets, brief cases and watchbands which all match, shoe laces, tortious shell combs, well groomed hair, manicured nails, well tied ties, perfect cufflinks for the occasion are not the signs of obsessive behavior nor are they details which should be overlooked because of the rush and pressures of everyday life. Once you are committed to these "details," it takes so little effort to maintain your appearance and priorities. They come naturally. In a small way, it's like always insisting on a blue cheese or almond stuffed olive in your favorite martini. It's the details in life and with your wardrobe that bring pleasure, joy and refinement. Now…off you go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PTD47 An Outsanding Wallet
Both the long wallet and the billfold should be part of every well dressed gentleman's wardrobe. I own one of each color and change them based upon the other leather items (e.g. shoes and watchbands) I choose to wear on a specific day. After a year of regular use, they are like new. These are the finest wallets I have ever owned and I recommend them - without reservation to other Brooks Brothers devotees around the world.

I have always preferred long wallets. This wallet is by far the best one I have ever owned.
I especially like it because it holds the larger sizes of foreign currencies.
I highly recommend this wallet
