Want a wallet with rugged style and tough-as-nails construction, yet is function and minimalist? Then you need to check out the Architect’s Wallet from form•function•form. Hand crafted from a saddle-stitched piece of thick, rugged 5/6 oz leather, it eliminates the multiple layers of paper-thin leather dividers of typical wallets, in favor of minimalism and usability. It incorporates a write-anywhere Fisher Space Pen (a favorite of many for portability and durability) and a take-anywhere extra small Moleskine Volant notebook (tiny but tough and handy) that is slightly larger than a credit card. With space for three cards inside the notebook flap and five to ten in the thumb-slot pouch, and space for some folded cash and receipts in either slot, the minimalist design will easily fit in the front pocket of all but the skinniest jeans (you know who you are). Available in over a dozen leather color and texture combinations. What’s the catch for all this made-in-USA awesomeness ? Price. Once you’ve emptied your thick wallet on its $98 price tag, a minimalist wallet will be all you need. Also see the related Charette Wallet, which has pen loop instead of a pen pocket.
