- An odd one: The William Wallet from Wintercheck Factory
Innovative concepts are always welcome. It’s not always that they succeed in being functional though, but this ones seems to make it. And, it’s also visually very pleasing. William Wallet (card case?) from Wintercheck Factory. Design by Kristen Wentrcek. Thanks to Svékus Gergely for sharing this wallet with us!
- The connoisseur wallet
From Makr comes this very delicious wallet / card case: “Horizon Three Wallet“. It’s very hand made, edge painted and polished to perfection. The leather is Saddle Tan Horween® Chromexcel®. Just look at that – two “®”‘s in the material name! The price is in comparison. A hefty $90. But hey, it’s VERY beautiful!
- Capsule wallet from Porter by Yoshida
This black delight, Capsule Wallet, from japanese label Porter by Yoshida gives me severe cravings. At time of writing it’s out of stock, but keep an eye out for it if it comes back!
- Star gazing
Here’s a wallet that tickles a nerve for me – the Astronomy Billfold. It’s not really that beautiful a wallet in my opinion, but the idea with a lasercut star constellation (Northern Cross and Big Dipper in this case) is just brilliant! Laser cut patterns on wallets is not the uncommon, and there are some [...]
- In the mail
They nice folks over at Lifethreal sent a flowfold wallet for us to review. (Thanks!) To be honest, my initial reaction is that it feels a bit plastic. But then when you start investigating it a bit, pulling and streaching, you quickly realise that the sailcloth it’s made of makes it tough and (I assume) [...]
- The vintage trend
Vintage is reaching over hype at the moment. A backlash is sure to come. Perhaps all newly produced “vintage looking” accessories and artifacts are a sign of that. Nonetheless, some still do it with a genuine touch. Nic & Mel says they bring back the best from history. Can’t say I disagree when looking at [...]
- Retro-Modern they call it
Returning to Etsy to find this very nice wallet (yet another one with iPhone storage capabilities) from Portel based in Tallin, Estonia. The finish to the leather and the tough metal knobs fits perfectly together. Nice one! $79 + p&h.
- The best party wallet ever?
Ulterior Motive once again have a few really nifty card cases released. This time it’s about as minimalistic as it gets, with only one “slot”. There’s also a handy slider hole (which we have come to recognize from other Ulterior Motive wallets) that makes it easy for you to get the cards/money out quick. The [...]
- Hickoree’s scarred wallet
I for one, is quite passionate about details. This “scarred” wallet from Hickoree’s for example, have a beautiful little stamped logo with two guns that makes the composition perfect. In all, “just” a piece of leather cleverly put together, not even a single stich is visible (not sure there even is any). Currently out of [...]
- Propery of…™
Dutch fashion smiths Property of…™ have some truly delicious accessories! It’s hard to find exactly what is so special about their wallets, but the finish, attention to detail, structures and fabrics really makes them stand out. Selectism have more on their Autumn 2011 release: Oh, and from the pictures of their Property of…™ store in [...]
