New Model - Machine Gun Jack - Snap Card Case

a new family member: machine gun jack After about four years of development and dragging my feet I am proud to announce our newest wallet model: Machine Gun Jack. This minimalist snap card holder is made from a single, symmetrical piece of leather and is thin enough to disappear into your front pocket. We have chosen specific leathers from Horween that will age, patina, and get better with each use.  Jack measures in at a tiny 4" x 2" closed and is available in famous Horween Shell Cordovan, Chromexcel, Essex, and Dublin leather.

New Horween Shell Cordovan Color Development: Amaretto, Denim, and Ultraviolet

After decades of waiting, in July 2016 Skip Horween unveiled the first new shell cordovan color, Garnet: a gorgeous, deep red color with burnt ochre overtones. Garnet was received with overwhelming positivity and is an excellent foot in the door for Horween to introduce new shell cordovan colors. Skip has been motivated to develop new colors and has been doing many trials. Today, I have a unique privilege to introduce not just one but three potential new colors now in development: Amaretto, Denim, and Ultraviolet. I find each of the potential new colors to be fantastic. Something specifically stands out to me in each new shade: they all have a more vibrant and “pure” color to them when compared to...
