It does take some time to break in because of the thickness but I just did it through normal wear.
I feel it's a good thing it takes a while to break in instead of being flat and floppy in a week...it's made to last.

Looks great btw. And nice watch and strap.

The Dublin leather, and as you said in your review so soft and it is like my old bomber jacket I had, heard they were coming back in style...

Shane David Designs Thank you all for your support! I still have a few wallets left, some different colors too. All hand made in the USA, even the leather is tanned in Horween's factory in Chicago. Hand stitched with hand waxed thread. Here are the finished items: Cocoa Dublin, Deep Blue, Chromexcel Tan (Has a redish tint), Brown Cavalier & another Dublin. Now I have to try and find some time to get a bunch of straps done. Cheers.

hikeNbike Enjoying my wallet and straps greatly. Best wallet I've ever owned and straps are fantastic as well. Here's a couple of pics on the cell not the best pics as my picture taking is a bit lacking. I highly recommend both the straps and the wallet. The leather Zulu is very soft.

AtomicTom Two phenomenal creations Don ! Holy cow, Mr. David does some amazing work!!! The strap grabs your attention right away with that sensational butterscotch color you mentioned. Really does look like that by the way ! It's a really eye-catching color that manages to stand out, as well as make the watch it's with look even classier. Ridiculously cool !

Nice how it's evidently so soft like this also. Can imagine this one feeling like you are wearing nothing on the wrist even though it looks so substantial. ..What a wallet too Don ! Neat how not only the craftsmanship is top notch like the strap, but how the leather is stiffer than the strap. Seems like some kind of wallet ! Really awesome review as always Don. Thanks very much !!!

Shane David Designs Had some time available to get started on some more Dublin wallets. Not sure exactly when they will be ready to ship. I used the last of my Dublin leather so there will not be anymore in this material available after these, unless of course I am able to locate more.

I know people enjoy seeing progress shots so here are a few:

Hand Stitching:

Shane David Designs I have 4 wallets half complete, I will be working on them when I can squeeze in the time. One is the same leather as reviewed, the other three are different colors. With the commercial order I am working on turn around is very slow. After it is finished I will be knocking a bunch of stuff out and loading up the website. Thank you all for the kind words. And a huge thank you to those of you who placed an order.

That's a smoking price for a horween Zulu, only wish he had them in black, or a dark distressed finish.

n80leather Great job Shane! The wallet looks super...to reinforce what Don said about the wallet being the last one you may ever have to buy, very true. My $30 timberland leather wallet is coming apart; stitches are loose, the pockets are tearing away from the body, and the edge coat is peeing off. Its only 5 years old. Much better investment in something handmade. Thanks for the review

Just took a look at the Zulus.
I'm not a fan of zulu straps but that's a great price for a handmade leather one.
Looking forward toward your impressions.

You can still probably order a wallet and he will make one.

What strap did you order?

Shane David Designs Thank you for the review Don. I am very busy at the moment working on a large commercial order but I will reply to e-mails ASAP. I have the last pre-made wallet already spoken for. I am currently at least a month out on special orders due to back log but feel free to shoot me an e-mail and get on the list.

Also this softer Horween leather tends to stretch a bit over time but has held up very well to my daily wear. You may see it stretch one extra hole over time. I wouldn't worry to much about damaging it by wearing it often unless you wear it in substantially rough conditions.
