Kawatako "Sakura" Short Wallet (Type H) One Year In Use

July 05, 2016


The Kawatako "Sakura" Short Wallet (Type H) is some basic wallet which we have been selling over years. The wallet is constructed with best imported Italian cowhide leather which is vegetable tanned and uneven dyed in Japan.

The "Sakura" color is specially developed by Kawatako which is baby pink in brand new condition.With many uses, you may see the "Sakura" turns to be some salmon colorway, comparing with tan colorway, the ageing way of "Sakura" looks even "CLEANER" and if you scratch the leather, you may see some natural tan color come up as well, however, with several hours in use, the natural tan underneath will turns to salmon colorway again magically.

The embossed logo looks much clear with uses

Hand-finished edge still keep the wallet in a good shape even I place the wallet in back pocket for a year...


The color of interior looks slightly lighter which is a great contrasted look throughout time of uses...

With a year of daily use, the well made wallet still keeps in a good shape (or even a better shape compares to brand new one) and I guess she can still serve me for a decade...

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
