    My 2 year old Saddleback bi-fold wallet. This is the best leather thing I owned!

    I use Tarragon leather balm. You can get it from Heel Sew Quik(?) Megamall. I apply it like once a month and makes your wallet soft and cleans it of smudge.

    Finally done sour graping and will pull the trigger on a Saddleback. Can anybody suggest the most cost-effective way in shipping one from USA to Manila? I've tried Johnny air in the past but I've noticed that they've let a few philmuggers down recently. Thanks in advance!

    I think I saw some at OLX before, cheaper than Light Fix Cut Store, but LFCS's knowledge about what he sells and his way of transacting with customers is worth the slightly higher price too. :)

    Hi guys! Hope you can help me out. I'm getting the Big Leather Wallet and a Hobo Crossbody Purse from SBL. Upon inquiry, they were kind enough to offer to consolidate both packages for me to reduce shipping costs. I love how accommodating they are. :) Now I have 2 options:

    1. Have SBL ship to Manila (UPS Worldwide Expedited)
    2. Have SBL ship to a forwarder in the US (MSB or JAC)

    I'm tending towards the first option since it's less of a hassle but I'm worried that the package would just get sent to the post office instead of my door. Don't want to have to pay the people there. Has anyone had any experience shipping from SBL to Manila without using a forwarder?

    Congrats on your purchase!

    I've always used MSB or JAC for my SBL goods to avoid the hassle of the PO.

    I shipped a Hobo crossbody, 2 MBA sleeves and an iPad mini sleeve through MSB a few months ago and was charged $29.95 (5 pounds). Got my stuff in about 2 weeks.

    Trifold wallet for the missus... A bribe, so she won't get angry at me for purchasing another pair of shoes.

    just got a Simple Backpack Large in Chestnut. Looks huge at first, but it is just right for my frame. Got this 25% off via Dave's Deals, and shipped via LBC (1.8k shipping via sea).
