Smythson of Bond Street is one of the leading names in the luxury leather goods industry around the world and an icon in the UK. Smythson of Bond Street was established in 1887 and is the proud holder of three Royal warrants, granted by Her Majesty The Queen in 1964, HRH The Prince of Wales in 1980, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother in 1987 and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 2002. While holding The Queen Mother's Warrant, Smythson was one of only eight companies in the world to hold all four warrants simultaneously. Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition given to companies or individuals that have supplied goods or services for at least five years to the households of the British Royal Family. As users of the most functional and classic pigskin card case, we can attest that their quality, design and craftsmanship is exceptional.
This beautiful black pigskin card case gets its inspiration from an early card case launched by Smythson back in 1925 and described in their catalogue at the time as 'perfectly finished and available in the finest leather'. At that time the card case was fitted with a thin sterling silver mount on the border of the top cover and embossed with gold foil lettering.
Today, the current model of their card case features a simple, functional and durable design that catches the eyes of other watchlifestylers every time we pull it out to hand out one of our business cards. Measuring only 4" tall by 2.75" wide, the card case is light, sturdy but not too bulky at less than 0.5" at its thickest point.
Besides its functionality and design, something else we love about this card case is how discreet the Smythson of Bond Street branding was done. The branding is only visible as you pull the top cover off to take out one of your business cards. This is a nice and elegant touch that gets enhanced even more, if your business cards happen to have silver foiling.
This elegant Smythson of Bond Street card case is as functional as that Rolex GMT Master ref. 1675 Pepsi you've been wanting to buy for months. The best part about Smythson leather goods, is how exclusive they are and how only a very few watchlifestylers will be pulling out one of these cases out of their bespoke suit pockets.
If you are walking around New Bond Street in London or 57th Street in New York City, make sure to pay them a visit and look at all their leather goods selection that includes everything from bags, wallets, card holders and cases, leather accessories, books, diaries and even some amazing chess sets and watch boxes.
