  • DETAILS

The Dr. Greg Series Billfold is made from the leather of a baseball glove sourced from “Dr. Greg” Luttrell’s personal collection and is one of only 48 billfolds in this Limited Edition collection.


The entire back panel and the two front card pockets on this billfold were hand-cut from a glove curated from Dr. Greg’s collection. We combined those pieces with a dyed middle layer of premium quality full-grain steerhide to provide structure, durability, and an accent of color unlike any past FC Goods’ wallet.

The Legacy Of Dr. Greg

& Manhattan Leather Design

He was a Cubs fan living in St. Louis, but Dr. Greg’s friends loved him in spite of it.


Dr. Greg Luttrell– called “Dr. Greg” by all who knew him in deference to the pride he took in his engineering Ph.D.– started doing leatherwork as a hobby, which turned into a full-bore obsession in the form of Manhattan Leather Designs, his leathercrafting outlet named for his hometown of Manhattan, KS. 


Manhattan Leather’s most distinctive feature? The use of baseball gloves, which the notoriously colorful man accented with colorful dyed slices of steerhide.


Esophageal cancer took Dr. Greg quickly in early 2019, but the story of the beloved husband, father, friend, baseball fan, and leatherworker lives on in the form of the FC Goods Limited Edition Dr. Greg Series– wallets made from the gloves from Dr. Greg’s collection.

How we make this BILLFOLD


STEP 1

SOURCE BASEBALL GLOVES FROM DR. GREG’S COLLECTION

Dr. Greg knew and appreciated FC Goods. So when a close friend asked if we wanted to acquire the gloves that Dr. Greg and his wife, Karol, had spent nearly every weekend collecting from garage sales, thrift stores, and beyond, we were all too happy to, and to carry on his legacy.

STEP 2

HAND-CUT SWATCHES FROM EACH GLOVE

With Dr. Greg’s gloves in hand, our leathercrafting team individually examined each glove and hand-cut the pieces of they deemed most durable, functional, and representative of the unique character of the glove they came from– and the game we love.

STEP 3

COMBINE WITH DYED FULL-GRAIN STEERHIDE

FC Goods utilizes premium quality full-grain steerhide for the middle panel in every Limited Edition product to provide structural integrity and usability. Because Dr. Greg’s leather goods often featured colorful slices of dyed leather, we did the same, accenting this Limited Edition series with dyed steerhide for the first time in our history.

STEP 4

MACHINE SEW EACH WALLET INDIVIDUALLY

With glove leather selected and cut, our team of leatherworkers sewed each product one-at-a-time. The legacy of our shared pastime is in the leather of each glove, and the attention to detail ensures that the final product will last.

STEP 5

STAMP WITH GOLD LEAF FC GOODS LOGO

No FC Goods wallet is complete until we stamp our logo in gold leaf foil into the final product. It’s the perfect accent to the wallet, and a symbol of the standard of craftsmanship to which we hold ourselves.

Leather Conditioner Included

Free With Each Purchase

We include premium leather conditioner with every Dr. Greg Series wallet purchase. Conditioning your wallet helps preserve the quality and history of its leather—aged by weekend double headers and late-night games of catch. The better you care for your wallet, the longer you’ll be able to carry that history with you.
