Fade of the Day – Il Bisonte Bi-fold Wallet (8 Years)

It’s time for another edition of Fade of the Day, and it looks like the patina gods have been kind to Clifford Lo, from Hong Kong, and his Il Bisonte Bi-Fold Wallet, a piece that he’s been using for the better part of a decade.

We thought our vegetable tanned wallet was looking good, but Clifford’s takes the cake completely. He hasn’t told us exactly how he’s earned such rich patina, but considering the rich amber tones offset by burnished black markings, it’d be safe to assume that he’s been rocking this leather wallet in the back pocket of some raw denim jeans. What’s really nice is how the thread has maintained its original color, allowing the leather to stand out in all its aged glory.
