Classic Man

There is something quite thrilling about making a custom order for someone, there is a distinct adrenalin as you attempt to create something your customer will truly love. I was approached by this fellow, after he had seen a wallet I had made for his friend, made with my fair hands. He wanted to commission me to make a wallet that matched his style and personality with a discrete personalized touch. He explained it was his mission to obtain a totally handmade wardrobe whilst supporting black owned business. I was happy to take on the challenge, and very quickly came up with a design that I felt complimented his style and my aesthetic of simple classic beauty. I loved designing and making the wallet so much I will be adding a version of this wallet to my new Etsy shop. Most importantly, he was pretty chuffed with his new classic wallet, another satisfied customer.
