I LOVE the concept of a minimalistic wallet. Every now and then, I do my best to empty my wallet of nonessential bulk. But sadly I never even get close to what I would consider sleek or slim. The artisans at Leather Works have created just that, a thin, well-made wallet designed to carry around your [...]

Wallets, like gear bags, are an every day necessity. But they can easily become stuffed with items that you don't really need or use, becoming more of a burden to carry than a useful accessory. I think that's why we're seeing so many minimalist wallets on the market right now. People are tired of clutter and bulky [...]

I keep wanting to switch to a minimalist wallet, but there's one thing that prevents me from doing so - having to double fold my cash. Call me crazy, but I don't want to fold my cash in half and then fold it in half once more, just to fit it in the wallet. The [...]

TruVirtuCandC - 3

I can't wait until all transactions are private, digital and use whichever device you happen to have with you. I've carried a wallet for years, and it sometimes becomes the "George Castanza" wallet of Seinfeld fame, where one more piece of paper will cause it to explode. With that in mind, when Julie offered the team [...]
