Our wallet chain customers are typically pretty happy with their purchase. As a result, they tend to want to wear their chains everywhere. Occasionally we hear stories of panic however when a customer tries to take their chain onto an airplane, or to a concert, or some other event where maybe security doesn't allow such items. Do yourself a favor, if you wear a wallet chain on the regular, be smart and have a plan. If you're getting on an airplane the TSA only allows wallet chains in your checked bags or in your carry on. If you're headed to a concert maybe consider a front pocket wallet without a chain. The last thing you want is to be denied entry to a show you paid good money to see because you don't want your chain confiscated,and you don't have time to walk all the way back to your car to lock it up. We know our wallet chains are high quality, and when you own one you'll want to show it off. But you should always be mindful of what your plans are for the day when you're carrying a heavy duty length of chain at your waist. Do yourself a favor, and have a plan.
When we look at the weight and gauge of certain leathers we're having to do a little tactile mathematics. Because our wallets are seldom made from a single ply of leather. We're looking for the right combination of leathers that get a certain thickness and flexibility that we know will break in well.
If you would like to be certain that your order from Anvil Customs this year is under the Christmas Tree, I would recommend making your order by December 10th. That's the last day we can promise to have your order done in time and shipped for Christmas. That goes doubly true if you live out of country...
If you do your research you will find hundreds of websites that sell mass produced thin leather wallets from Asia that really don't have that "special" quality about them. Plus they're basically designed to fall apart in a year or two, so that's right out. No no, you want something that is unique, nicely crafted and built to last don't you? That's the type of gift that really makes a statement.
