Buying new wallets used to bother me because I couldn't believe how fast they wore out. $50 down the drain every few years. The problem was solved twenty something years ago. My wife and I stopped in Mulberry Leather in Paris and I bought what I thought was an astronomically expensive wallet. I still have it, but now it's in my night table drawer. Last pass through Heathrow, I bought a new one at the Mulberry store in the BA terminal. It'll last until I die. We found a Mulberry store in the states in the premium outlets in Palm Springs. I don't need another wallet but my wife bought a handbag. It'll last forever. A man needs a wallet. My wife needs handbags for every occasion.
