Not sure what to say?

Rest in peace Mr. Alessi.

For 22 years now I have been using one of your holsters. The guns come and go but your holster has been the mainstay.

Cousin Lou( my favorite cousin) here I am in 2017 missing you as much as ever. Thoughts and prayers that. We meet again.

Lou Made me a beautiful leather holster of exceptional quality for my WWII Walther PPK around 1980 and it was (and still is)of exceptional quality. I recently gave the holster and my Walther PPK to one of my family members in the Buffalo area and am proud to have had that holster with the gun all these years. The fit and quality were, and still are, excellent.
I am happy to see that family members are carrying on the tradition of exceptional quality holsters, and I will be ordering one...

Its indeed rare today when consumer products exceed customer expectations. Alessi products design and construction are in my humble opinion the very finest available to the practical enthusiast. Thank you all for carrying forward his vision. Regards. Richard Sukup, PE (Professional licensed Engineer).

As I sit here conditioning and polishing my Alessi Kimber rig I was reminded of the phone conversation with Lou approx. 2008 when I placed my order having admired the same rig worn by my Instructor: John Benner of TDI in West Union Ohio.

In my ignorance I assumed (incorrectly) that I was simply ordering a "mass-produced" holster and failed to realize until I received it how amazing is the quality and handmade craftsmanship; that will last my own lifetime.


To all my family, friends, colleagues of Louie, customers, and especially to ALL of you who contributed to the Guest Book:

It will be six years since I lost my beloved husband, Lou. I'm not sure if anyone will be seeing my post, but I am writing it mostly for myself and our beautiful daughter, Alexandra.

I just reread all of these messages which I have read many, many times, and each and every time I do, there is a wailing deep inside of me. I am always screaming...

Best Holster I ever had. Still use it...

He is sorely missed.

Hey Alex, He's always in our Prayers....He's there, all you need do is "Listen"
