  1. Megs and I welcomed our baby boy earlier this month and wanted to share the news with the TPF community. Come say hello to Baby Vaughn!

  1. The Maroon fold over wallet arrived yesterday. Everything fold over wallet owners have said is all true. It is a wonderfully practical and beautiful style. I cannot find one single drawback.

    It fits everything that a zip around fits and even a little more. Each slot is roomy enough to hold 2 cards. With so many wallet choices out there, this one can be overlooked. But if anyone is in the market for a wallet, you will not be disappointed with a fold over style.

    Here she is:

  2. Gorgeous color & lovely style, jburgh! If I ever move to a full size wallet, that's the one I'd buy!! Thanks for the great pictures :smile:
     
  3. I love that wallet
    the color is stunning
    isn't it the best wallet
    so roomy :dothewave::ps:
     
  4. congratulations jburgh- i just got the fold over wallet in indigo. the maroon is just gorgeous. i am not sure i would have chosen indigo if i knew maroon was available. i had had a black one years ago and sent it off to a new home but the style still called to me and i am just loving it.
    enjoy your new wallet and thanks for the picture-
     
  5. Happy J, excellent choice and gorgeous color!
     
  6. Gorgeous color! Thanks for the photos. I have this wallet in lilac. I think the style is softer in the hand, more pliable, than my other full-size wallets.

    Enjoy yours!
     
  7. Congrats. I need this wallet. I love larger wallets. This is so much more practical than the zip around.
     
  8. That's very pretty, jburgh. I have been a fan of this wallet after I saw it at Malleries. I think it'd be good to put my Droid phone in one of the zip compartments. Great choice :smile:
     
  9. Strong work! There's no "george kastanz-ing" this wallet!
     
  10. You won't be sorry!


    Yes, I am so glad I took the plunge


    Indigo is a great color! Enjoy yours too.


    Thanks, it sounds like it is raining wallets around the BV forum. :graucho:


    You're exactly right, it is so soft. Have you posted a pic of the lilac? I'd like to see it.

    You do need a fold over. It is easier to access the contents with a snap.


    Great idea - I'll try it with my HTC sensation. Then this wallet could double as a clutch.

    I don't exactly know what that means, but it struck me as very funny!


    Thank you everyone for the kind words.
     
  11. I think the reference relates to the Seinfeld character, George Costanza. Grietje is probably thinking of the episode in which George displays his wallet, which is comically over-stuffed by its contents. There would be none of that with the layout of this wallet--everything at a glance!


    I'm sure I posted photos here and there; I bought it when lilac's season ended (I think it was FW09). I found some in the Color Reference; I'll attach a shrunken version:

  12. Pretty nice style and actually very practical as well. Not to mention the leather looks buttery soft. Congrats!!
     
  13. Re the George Kastanza Wallet

    There is an episode in Seinfeld where Jerry sees George's wallet and it is filled to th gills with receipts and stuff. He could barely fold it. This beauty should never be allowed to get to that level. I'd have to arrange an intervention!
     
  14. Congrats on your new wallet - love the combination of smooth nappa and intrecciato!

    Wear her in good health. :smile:
     
  15. Jburgh, so pretty. I started the thread fold over wallet convert. I loved mine till the leather pockets holding the cards got so soft and stretched that every time I opened my wallet the cards fell out. I tried doubling up on the cards for a tighter fit but eventually the leather continued to stretch and I had the same problem. I ended up getting a zip around. Initially, I loved the wallet so much I got my dd one. So far she hasn't had a problem but she also rotates wallets whereas I don't. Good luck! I do love the maroon.
