Awesome wallet!.....wait....nope, it appears to be a fake...
on May 2, 2013
I absolutely love this wallet. Nice supple good quality leather. lots of space inside. I havent owned it long enough to speak to it durability but Im full expecting to own this wallet for a good 10 years just like the other good quality leather wallets Ive owned in my time. Having said that Id never pay the claimed retail price of $120 dollars. I got this on sale for half price. You can buy great quality leather wallet for between $40-$60 bucks. anything more and your just paying for the brand name IMO.
Ive owned this wallet now for only 5.5 months and the color on the corners of this wallet are turning from black to a bluish color. I checked with Ralph Lauren Directly and they said that it sounds like a good fake. They said they couldnt be sure since Amazon isnt a licensed Ralph Lauren retailer but from some of the things she described to me to look for and some of the things I described to her we both agreed it did indeed appear to be a fake. I loved the wallet and if the corners werent turning blue after only 5.5 months of use I wouldnt even care if it was a fake for the price I paid but the discoloration of it makes it very undesirable to me. At this point I doubt I'll own it for another 6 months before replacing it with what I hope will be a real wallet that will last 10 years before starting to wear out and fade.
