It’s been some time since George Costanza (of Seinfeld) struggled with an overstuffed wallet, causing him back pain, and men these days have gravitated to thinner wallets or better yet, a simple card case to carry the necessities of capitalist life: credit and debit cards, ID, business cards, and perhaps a folded up bill or two.
While there are many different styles out there—and luxurious ones abound—we felt a simple one piece, envelope style case would fit the bill (or vice versa, no pun intended). This one is handmade of highest quality bridle leather—yes, what’s used in expensive bridles and saddles, and what used to be used in bespoke English luggage—and will last a lifetime; aging beautifully and developing a unique patina, much like photograph on the drivers’ license that might be carried inside.
With no stitching to come apart, and thick enough to withstand the rigors of life in our pockets and bags yet supple enough (and will get more supple over time) to not create a bulge wherever it lives, the card case, unlike some other minimalist styles, gives one the flexibility to also carry cash, receipts, a toothpick if that’s your wont, and even a condom or two. Or three or more, when you’re feeling lucky. (I mean women, too, who have as much need for card cases as men, to say nothing of condoms.) A limited edition collaboration with Apogee Handmade, the case will be available for a short time in our General Store.
