EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

Anson Calder nails it again with their Billfold wallet, but it’s $145

I tend to bring up Anson Calder’s price as part of their video listings. They continue to kill it with product with simplistic design, elegant operation and superior materials, and they know it! Their pricing reflects their confidence. If price is secondary to quality, function and operation, then you have to look at this wallet. They’ve quickly become one of my favorites.

This is this packaging is very upscale but simple. The only thing that changes is the insert inside which depends on the wallet being shipped.  We know this as we’ve had several of their wallets reviewed. This is the cognac color. 

As you saw it handled 6 cards, 3 on each side without a problem and 6 slips of cash. The cash seems to sit well but doesn’t leave much room as the cash wants to peek over the top.

The company says it can hold up a 14 cards, but that would have to come after some break in period.  The length of the wallet accommodates more cards in there due to leather spacing. This allows the wallet to close even after you’ve included many, many cards.  Let me show you. 

It’s made from calfskin leather tanned in a 16th century French tannery, It’s then shipped over to the United States, where it’s manufactured in California. It is a full grain veg-tanned leather with burnished edges on this particular wallet. It’s very supple, soft, the thickness of leathers is just right. It comes in 6 colors both in non-RFID and RFID protection, I’d recommend you go for the non-RFID. The price on this is $145. That’s a very premium price.  But if you think about it’s manufacturing journey, French leather shipped to the United States and then manufactured in California. One thing that’s a given is with all Anson Calder products, they’re designed to be easy to use. That’s due in part to its simplicity, elegant design, and its perfectly cut thickness of leather to accommodate its purpose. And really the ease of the break in period, there’s no struggle. It’s measures 3” x 7 ¾” x ⅛” think. inches by seven and three quarter inches by one eighth inch thin. Now of course we’ve really enjoyed the Anson Calder products. They’re one of my favorite brands due to the consistency of their offering, material design and functional quality. Let’s now get to the final score. For quality a 5, for price a 2, features a 3,, usability a 3, and perception a 5. That takes us to a final score of 37 out of 50 or 3.7 out of 5.
