Jan.29, 2017 ... RJ has designed a new style of wallets and other items. They are a one (1) piece item, made of different leathers, on genuine calf skin. These are not bulky as are the laced wallets (10 pieces), and will last a lifetime with the rivets. These are in the Misc. category on the wallets page. This new style of wallet will hold 12 to 15 cards.
