RRL Spring/Summer 2012 Leather Envelope Wallet

RRL makes the old, new. It’s what they do. There is of course that lingering question, why not just buy the real-deal original at half the price?  We won’t attempt to answer that right now – some of us enjoy hunting down vintage, some of us don’t. Takes all sorts right? Anyway, onto this Italian vegetable tanned leather wallet from the Spring Summer 2012 collection, which of course has been aged. Everything the label presents needs to feel passed down rather than straight of the production line.We like the Concho snap, giving it a bit of Southwest flavour and the overall clean appearance avoids it looking too faux-vintage.

Context tells us “The SS12 RRL collection pulls inspiration from historical marine surplus, turn-of-the-century American engineer’s garments and the life of British archaeologist T.E. Lawrence.” Get your olden days bill holder at Context.
