I was pretty choked because of how much I paid for this wallet. I figured it would last me a long time. It's way past the one year warranty so I guess i'm SOL. I'm just angry because now it looks like a cheap/fake wallet.

also, mine is the older style bifold with the license window which I prefer so I don't even think they make this one anymore..
Nice wallet, my brother has the brown Guccissima and the same thing is happening with his because he wears it in his back pocket. You can get it repaired (the leather re-dyed)...you'll just end up having to pay for it. Take it back to Gucci and see what they say? But that's normal wear and tear on Guccissima leather.

I like it alot. I have a card or 2 in each slot and its comfortable for me but to each his own. I used to have a gucci one with the coin pouch and compared to that this is obviously way better :P

Oh, didn't know you could re-dye it. That might be an option. Though, if it's like $100 i'm not sure if it'll be worth it.

Thanks for the idea though.

well since gucci doesn't make the transparent card slot anymore in their wallets, it could be a worthwhile investment to transform an old wallet into a close-to-looking brand new one. I definetly think the gucci wallet you have looks alot better than the ones for sale nowadays. just sayin,

Hey guys got a question about my wallet (like the one above). You can kind of see it in the pic but the wallet does close flush. When it is closed it one side sits on an angle instead of straight with the bottom. What could be causes/repairs for this?

im guessing when you sit down the wallet offsets and well, it just gets creased like that?

Depends what you want it for.. if you want it to flash and show off, then go for it. Really, how many people are actually going to grab your wallet and examine it?

I personally go for the authentics because to me, it's more about the pride of getting something nice out of some hard work. Like GQ says, a man's wallet and watch define who they are.

But to answer your question.. of course you will notice some differences if you have both side by side.. more or less depending on the quality of your fake. But most people would hardly be able to tell a replica from an authentic that's been used for a few months.

Spoiler!


this is the one i got around a year ago.. i liked it cause it was more subtle and not as 'flashy'. those red and green ones are hideous. and i wanted the id slot inside, this was only one of the two that had it. i think this pic is of a fake one though..

edit: ugh picture is too big and i don't know how to resize it on the forums. i just spoiler'd it.
