Review of custom men's biker wallet for Christmas!
by Sarah Anne Howell Dec 09th 2013
The wallet is AWESOME!!! The tooling, the coloring, the construction... Really just TOP NOTCH and BEAUTIFUL!!!
Working with John I just don't think could have been a better experience! He was very thorough throughout the whole process, in describing what he was doing, as well making sure he had a clear picture of what I wanted.
Over all it was just the best experience I've had working with someone from the internet on a custom made project!
I'd recommend him to ANYONE needing custom leatherwork!!!
Review of Custom made leather purse
by jewel Nov 25th 2013
John was great to work with.... communication was great.....I had a specific purse I wanted made(it was a cheap non-leather purse).... and I now have a quality made, two-tone reptile leather purse with MANY zippers and compartments on the outside as well as in the inside....John nailed it spot on! If you put the purses together side by side you can hardly tell them apart....Thanks John, and keep up the good work!

Review of Saddlebag pack
by Shannon Sep 05th 2013
It was great working with John! It was hard for me to describe what exactly I wanted with the saddlebag pack, but he worked with me and communicated and gave his expert advise, and it turned out great!! The tooling, leatherwork, everything was professional and he was super fast in getting it to me when I needed it.
Thank you John for everything!!!
Review of wallet/coin purse
by Patricia Aug 25th 2013
I was absolutely delighted with my experience with John at Alamo Custom Leather! Although he and I live in the same area, we communicated mostly via email (which is my preference). I emailed him photos and dimensions for my little "wallet" and told John to use his experience & expertise to create my project. And did he ever! He not only created one of what I requested, but three! And when I arrived to pick it up and was having a hard time deciding which one of the three I would chose, John surprised me by telling me he'd give me all three for the price of the one I had ordered!!!
I forgot to take a photos of them before I gave them away as gifts (the recipients were all very pleased!!).
I would highly recommend John and Alamo Custom Leather for any custom made leather item. I know I won't hesitate to!
