The Dior Homme Metal Corner is the businessman’s indispensable document holder. Reinterpreted along clean lines and available in double-sided leather set off with a distinctive metal closure.

Just when you then elegance can’t be enhanced. Dior does it yet again.
Looks sturdy and yes, elegant but upon closer inspection, most unworthy of the price tag. the metal hardware feels a tad cheap. The majority of the stitch work is done with a machine; what remains are a few centimetres of handmade saddle-stitches on the luggage tag and leather tab above the lock-clasp. The edges show inking done by a lackadaisical, almost clumsy hand. And the leather? No transparency…devoid of natural grain/texture. It is Stamped……… Done only with poorer grade skins that are too marred, marked and scarred. For the price, get yourself a TUMI or burn a nice hole in your pocket with a visit to that ot’H’er store known for its bright orange boxes.
