If anyone has a doubt about getting a wallet because of its steep price, I would highly recommend that you buy one. My mother gave me her epi french purse that she has had for 7 or 8 years and it is still in great condition and very durable. She said she got it when the cost was in the low 400's and now its $635! I have been using it for months now and i love it! Even though you could buy a bag instead of a wallet, the wallet is so worth the money.
