Since it is called a horseshoe wallet, I wonder if it brings you good luck financially. After all, a horseshoe brings luck, and this is a wallet. Our friend Lydia showed us her version before we left for Portugal. I particularly liked how, when opened, one side creates a shallow dish to hold coins, bills, etc. It makes it much easier to find things when one has a little tray. I have owned a Commes des Garcon wallet for 10 years; it has survived a flood, a fire and a theft - I got it back with the help of Dominos (the thief had ordered a pizza!). For some time it has been up for replacement. But with what? Wallets are very personal. Our model, #3, is made near Estremoz on the outskirts of the Portuguese "desert". It ages well. We include a $1 bill in each, as my grandmother always said it was bad luck to present an empty wallet to someone. Although you are buying ours from us I still think it is appropriate.
