It’s On Sale: Chester Mox Wallets
Chester Mox is offering a 20% discount on all orders with the coupon code MAR20DISC. The company sells wallets handmade from premium leathers, with each wallet made by the company’s owners in Los Angeles.
Their most basic models are made from Horween leathers, which include horse front (a denser, waxier material than calf, but one that’s more affordable than shell cordovan) and Latigo (a firm leather with a dry hand). Over the years, however, they’ve added a number of premium materials to their line. There’s Ilcea’s antique calf, for example, a beautifully mottled leather that John Lobb uses for some of their shoes, and Barenia, a soft, French calfskin that’s famously used for Hermes bags.
Wallets made from speciality leathers cost a bit more, but there are still simple Horween card cases available for $45 (or $36 with the discount). I bought one many years ago and still use it as my go-to in conjunction with a money clip. If you see some other wallet designs you like, you can also have it made any of their leathers (including the more affordable Horween) since everything is made-on-order anyway. Just enquire for pricing.
The sale ends next week on Wednesday.
