I’m sure you have been there… You’re getting ready to head out the door and as you are grabbing your belongings you notice your department store wallet is already cracking and coming apart.
“Didn’t I just buy this thing?” you say to yourself. “It’s basically useless already.”
Wallets may seem pretty simple, but there are actually a few things to look for which will help you be sure your pocket partner stays looking stunning for years to come.
First things first, let’s talk about leather. A lot of the wallets you will find at your local big box store will be marked “Genuine Leather”.
Sounds like a good thing, right? Wrong. Genuine leather is actually a disingenuous name and one of the cheapest and lowest quality types of leather. It is usually made of leather scraps, leftovers and other filler materials glued together and then painted and textured in an attempt to make it look better.
Look for a wallet made of Full Grain Leather. This is the highest quality leather you can get. Full Grain Leather comes from the strongest and thickest parts of the hide. Because of this it often shows the natural characteristics of the leather and will eventually develop a unique patina. There is no glue and no filler with Full Grain Leather; just heavy duty hide that is going to last.
Most wallets you find at your local Walmart or department store are going to be constructed mainly with a plastic mesh. These are made by taking pieces of thin, cheap leather and sandwiching a piece of plastic or other stiffener in between them. They glue and/or sew the pieces together to create a wallet that seems to be stiff and strong when you first pick it up. These wallets rarely last. The cheap leather will wear out, the stiffener will crack and the stitching will come apart. You have probably owned a wallet that fell apart on you and it was almost certainly made with leather over plastic.
Full leather wallets are naturally stronger. They don’t rely on stiffeners or adhesive to keep things together. One solid hunk of leather isn’t going to crack or fall apart. There are no seams; there is no stiffener to crack.
Full leather wallets will just plain last longer. Period.
After reading this you might think that a Full Grain Leather Wallet with a Lifetime Warranty is going to cost you an arm and a leg. I understand why you might think that. I mean who wants to spend a few hundred bucks on a wallet? Don't get me wrong, I know there are wallets out there selling for over $500 and they may be worth every penny of that and more! But you can get all of these things for a lot less than $100.
Not even $90, Not even $80. Our wallets start at $45!
There you have it. You can have your cake and eat it too!

We can offer that because we sell direct to you! If you ever had a wallet fall apart on you, give one of ours a try and see the difference a quality wallet makes.
The Best Wallet!
"I recently purchased The Aviator wallet for myself, and I love it! I researched quite a few different wallets from different companies advertising on social media, I read reviews, looked at all the photos, compared sizes and pricing,...etc, but kept being drawn back to Baurdi, and in particular, The Aviator. It turned out to be better in my hands than I had hoped!"

"I couldn't be happier with my new (and first) Baurdi wallet. It oozes quality, it smells great and it fits my cards and cash in a slim profile. Unlike most modern wallets it has a full cash slot, something I wanted since I'm using cash a lot more now in these COVID times. Brett even included a hand-written note thanking me for my order.
