I bought my first Classic Wallet No 101 just before starting law school in 1994. I wanted to treat myself and something to make me look mature and distinguish myself. The salesman at Nordstrom suggested this wallet and said it would last 10 years. It lasted me 9 years! 24 years later I'm on my third Classic Wallet and looking forward to my next one! I planning on buying my girlfriend's son one as well.
