Michael Forbes Portfolio Wallet

Postby David Hawkins » April 22nd, 2011, 2:19 pm

Possibly the best LePaul style wallet ever - I have one of these wallets for sale on eBay. In absolutely brand new condition - never been used.

This is an extremely rare item and no longer available.

To view and bid on the item please search on # 110678169411

I treasure mine as well. (The only thing I might've added to the design is a Marlo wedge.)

That said, the wallet is elegant in every respect--first class all the way. Instructions are detailed and terrific--it's clear it was created for real world use. Get it while you can!

The so-called Marlo Wedge as originally published uses a DIME to hold the wallet open. The idea of using a leather tab belongs to someone else.

Thanks, Richard--didn't know that. Barry Price's wallet includes that feature. I hope someone else on the board can reveal the true origins of the built in wedge.

The tab is the refinement that is being referred to in this ad as "suggested by Gary Kurtz".

Garnier Elite Wallet

I can't find my instructions to see if it is actually claimed as his idea.

Just to clarify - when the wallet was sold by Bob Kohler it came with one page of instructions and a link to an online forum where lots more information was available, such as preparing the envelopes, ideas on handling etc. The online forum no longer seems to be available but I have printed out all the information and this will be included with the wallet.
