Alligator Skin Wallet

Custom alligator skin wallet

Made from wild-caught alligators, this genuine alligator wallet is durable, sleek and handmade in the USA by our Master Leathermen. This exquisite artisan wallet is backed by our unbeatable 100-year warranty and each alligator is hand-dyed one of our unique signature colors. Test drive this wallet for 30-days and we will buy it back from you if it does not exceed your expectations. The leather interior is hand cut from top quality cowhide leather. The cowhide interior can be upgraded to match the hand-dyed alligator exterior. The interior of the pockets are lined with RFID-blocking fabric to protect your credit cards from thieves. Each edge is painted by hand to prevent the edges from separating.

Once broken in, this alligator wallet will comfortably hold 15-20 cards (2-3 cards per slot) as well as additional cards in the hidden compartments on either side of the wallet (total of two hidden compartments). The water-resistant, semi-gloss finish on our luxurious alligator skin wallets elevate an everyday item into a timeless piece of art.

For an extra special touch, personalize your wallet with complimentary initials (choose up to three letters). The ¾ inch Times New Roman letters are embossed on the bottom right hand corner of the wallets exterior. We do not hand paint gold letters and we do not emboss numbers. Personalized wallets will also ship within 48 hours.

The alligator skin wallet measures 8.5"L x 3.25" W while open and 4.5”L x 3.25” W while closed. There is one 3” wide cash compartment and no divider. We do not offer clear plastic ID windows in our bifold wallets.


Watch The Story of The First Mate

"My First Mate made a mistake that would change Southern Trapper forever. He thought it would be funny to play a prank on me, but he accidentally knocked over a bottle of black dye onto a light tan alligator skin that I had just finished dying. I must have dropped every cuss word in the book. He reached for a cloth to soak up the dye before it quickly spread across the entire alligator, but it was too late. The black dye had left its mark. A handsome mark with deep character that I quickly began to like. The contrasting tones brought out the texture and masculinity of the alligator, and I knew he was onto something great. Instead of asking him to scrub the poop deck, I asked him to fire up the sewing machine and make a few wallets. His mistake earned him a spot in my Legendary Tales collection, meet The First Mate. Watch the story unfold in the video." - Capt Bligh

First Mate Alligator Skin Wallet

Simply stated, I could not be happier with the wallet. Sometimes it seems that certain leather goods are not as nice as they appear to be when they are viewed online. That was not the case with the First Mate wallet I received on Christmas. It is just beautiful, and I could not be more pleased.
