    Hello there, YSL aficionados,

    What can you tell me about this black patent leather wallet of YSL's? It's not on their e-store. Does anyone know if it has a special name/style?

    How does the patent leather hold up, in particular to key scratches?

    Any ideas on the price?

    Feel free to give your personal opinions too. :smile:

    I've always fancied the super sleekness of YSL, and this looks pretty awesome from the picture.

    Thank you!

    This indeed is a beutyful wallet. I saw another in online YSL store in black and navy leather, which seems like the identical shape, for $275. It could be that, like for the women's wallets, same shape would be the same price for various leathers (if it is not ostrich).

    I adore YSL patent on small accessories (I have not had a courage to get a large bag in patent yet, but that's me :shrugs:).

    I have few Y-mail wallets and cosmetic case in patent - not only that it is durable forever, but also so beautiful with grainy texture. It shows no fingerprints, it has a modest elegant shine - not glossy, mirror-like. In black, there is no worries for color transfer and dirty corners...my favourite small leather option.

    As a comparison, I have men's Prada envelope wallet/coin purse done in amazing patent brushed leather, but every time I touch it, I have an urge to clean it from finger marks, it is a bother indeed....that is why I took saffiano after...and then discovered this amazing patent from YSL.

    My keys are all over the bag and I already have marks on the back of Prada, and another leather card case (Hayden Harnett), but nothing appeared on YSL patent ever.
