I understand why ‘people got mad’ at the guy for trying to keep his passion and business going but, I think they’re being too damn critical. Dave’s designs are superior to anyone else’s I’ve seen. They use the top of the line material. They stand by their 100 year guarantee. They don’t employee children and aren’t unethical in their work conditions. I’ve never had an issue with customer service. To me it’s a solid company with a goal to be classic in means of quality and innovative in ways of design. I’ve got one of their XL classic leather bags. I’ve had it for a year. I have TRIED to break it, kicked it around, what have you. Not been careful with it so to speak. The thing just gets more beautiful the more I do it. So, kudos man. I’m happy you got a piece of leather to fill your pocket that’ll last you forever and a girlfriend that understands you enough to know to get this wallet.
Speaking of wallets, after having talked up Saddleback, I’ve had a Johnston & Murphy wallet for about 8 years now. Bought after I got back from a trip to China and my forever wallet fell apart while there. Looks just about the same as the day I bought it. A fine wallet I hope to give it to posterity one day.
