Just showed this thread to my wife. Get her interested and we can both have some fun! Great looking wallet, Tom. It looks like a perfect size. I don't like large wallets.

I'd buy but not dealing with customs.

Any other stores besides Paris?

Will it fit in a front pocket?

Thank you!
See post above! Fits in front pocket perfectly. I never put my wallet in my back pocket. I don't know how anyone does. Same size as LV pocket organizer but roughly half the cost

Almost identical layout as the previous generation LV pocket organizer.

Yeah they are almost all the same.

I'd say LV has the most utility offering 3 card slots on the right. Goyard feels special with the hand stenciled exterior. The FLP is just a lot of fun with the pattern and soft interior.

Thank you. If I'm in Paris or Japan I'd buy on in heartbeat.

Looks great

Very nice ~ really loving the style of these. Planning on being in Paris again in the spring and will definitely check them out. My LV Damier Canvas has lasted almost 7 years now but is showing it's age (still love it though)

Does anyone know if they offer monogramming?

I asked. This is what Louise said:

No we don't have a monogramming/hot stamping service, we do not offer this customization service, as our canvas is waxed and grained it doesn't enable the painting on it. Moreover painted initials belong to the tradition of packing. Our own system of customizable badge will be soon available.

Congrats. I hope you like it. I can't stop fondling my Paris Blue wallet. It is SO soft and luxurious. The wife is still waiting for her tote, which was shipped via a slow boat to China (or so it seems to her).

What do people who don't know you well say when they see you fondling your wallet?

I like to smell my wallet. The interior leather smells like I would imagine heaven would smell like.

I must say the exterior is on the rough and rugged side compared even to LV canvas. Only the interior is soft. Still loving this wallet

My best friend complimented it tonight and asked where I come up with this crap, after having seen my Goyard I bought whilst we were in Chicago last weekend....TRF I said

Today I ordered a Faure Le Page 6cc slot bi-fold in the Ivresse red. The price was actually reasonable, but the shipping is on the high side. Add to that my CC company will likely charge a 3% conversion fee and then the Customs duty, if there is any. Total should still be under $400 which is comparable to many of the other luxury wallets, if not cheaper than most. Hope to have it soon. :) Aloha all, Tim

That's the wallet I'm looking at, but can't settle on a color.

My read of the HTS puts the US customs duty at 40% (ouch!).

Abdullah, I hope it is not that high. I paid duty on some jewelry few years ago and for $1500 in jewelry the duty was $85. I hope its more like 7 or 8%. Fingers crossed. Cheers, Tim

The HTS is sort of complicated for small leather goods and leather/textiles. Let's hope I goofed that up and it's only a couple percent.

Ah yes, this might be what I'm looking for. I only do small card holders. How much is this one? What are the measurements? It looks like I will be emailing FLP. Enablers

Yea, not bad and less than most high end luxury card holders. I just purchased a Burberry Horseferry Check Card Case in black/charcoal which I haven't used yet. I may just flip it on eBay and pull the trigger on the FLP Porte Cartes.

Beautiful wallet. Hope you love it.

We still haven't got the customs bill. I'll let everyone know as soon as we do.

Can you confirm the colors in your pic? Top row...Paris Blue, Empire Green, Walnut Brown and Ivresse Red? Bottom row...Steel Grey and ?

I inquired about the Porte Cartes and Nicolas at the boutique sent me a bunch of pics. I'm really digging these...





Unless I'm mistaken, there are two Walnut Browns. That's how the pics are labeled. I really like the first one because it has a textured buffalo leather on the outside as opposed to the smooth leather. Or is that first one steel grey?

Good point. I don't know, but if you email Nicolas of one of the others, they will answer your question as best they can. Good luck.
