Big, Brash, Stylish: The Fat Herbie Double Bifold
Racketeering. Bookmaking. Loansharking. Extortion. Herbert “Fat Herbie” Blitzstein loomed large in the Chicago mob world of the 50s and 60s – and not just because he was a 6-foot, 300-pound gorilla in a tailored silk pinstripe, known for cruising his streets in a great white yacht of a Cadillac El Dorado. Indeed, Fat Herbie had guts to match his girth – he made his bones working as muscle for Tony “The Ant” Spilotro and robbing jewelry stores by punching right through the wall – a tactic that gave “The Hole in the Wall Gang” its name.
Our Fat Herbie wallet honors this legendary wiseguy with its own imposing size and panache, like a Magnum in your pocket. With four full-sized card pockets hand-stitched in Horween Leather’s world-renowned Shell Cordovan, your cash and plastic will finally get the digs they deserve. And the rich grain of the equine leather will just get better with age – unlike poor Herbie himself whose career ended with a .22 slug to the back of the head.
