A classic Ettinger in its truest meaning. Ettinger started producing black leather Bridle Hide wallets in 1930s and this iconic piece has continuously been the bestselling product throughout the decades. The sleek black bridle hide exterior marries perfectly the London Tan panel hide interior, creating a combination that is elegant with a fun surprise inside.Bridle leather is bound to change in time and acquires a beautiful shiny patina. The traditional English bridle leather is strong enough to keep your possessions protected, becoming a lifelong friend. The London Tan panel hide inside the wallet does darken in time and may bruise if put under pressure. We always advise against keeping Bridle Hide products in trouser pockets, where the pressure and humid conditions may deteriorate the leather prematurely, especially if never cleaned nor polished.
