Leather color options
You may notice that it takes a little bit of effort to insert or remove credit cards into the slots of your Wilhelm Seam wallet when you first start using it. There is a break-in period with my wallets due to the nature of the leather I use to make them. By design the wallets intentionally start out tight so that when the leather wears-in with use the pockets do not become so loose that the cards fall out. I'd liken the process to breaking in a pair of good leather work boots or oxford shoes.
Typically it takes about two to three weeks of regular use for the leather to start stretching out a bit and form around the credit cards and cash. For all the credit card slots in each of my models, they will stretch out from daily use of just being in a pocket and being moved around, handled, sat on, and putting in and pulling out the credit cards. The interior of the leather pockets will smooth out over time in addition to the leather stretching, so inserting and removing cards should take minimal effort once the wallet is fully broken in.
Since every device screen is calibrated differently, exact product color can not be guaranteed. I do my best to accurately represent the color of the product in the photos and descriptions, but there may be some variability from different areas of the leather hide or between batches. As leather is a natural material and all products are handmade, please expect minor variations from piece to piece.
