The Fold

These svelte sheaths are about as low tech as you can get, just a single piece of Horween shell cordovan, three folds, and voila — your cash is snugly secured in horse ass leather for safekeeping. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Small – 2.5″ x 2.75″ folded, fits U.S. Dollars and no credit cards

Large – 2.5″ x 3.5″ folded, fits all international currencies plus a credit card or two

Deer Bone Restock

We’ve just restocked our popular deer bone for polishing cordovan. The oils inside this deer bone, when rubbed into shell cordovan leather, will restore uniformity to the color and smooth over scratches. It can even remove some small creases and welts. This is the secret weapon for polishing shell cordovan shoes.

Viberg Service Boot Pre-Order, Color 8 Shell Cordovan

UPDATE: This pre-order is sold out.

Viberg’s Service Boot takes the strengths of Horween Shell Cordovan leather and puts them to excellent use. As a durable and beautiful leather, the material can work as well in a workboot context as it can in a formal context. This captoe boot is both — a boot that will stand up to serious treatment while still looking fantastic. After this run, these boots may be retired.
