SlimTECH’s Wallet Is the Ultimate Pocket Accessory

slimtech wallet ultimate pocket accessory 940
Slim wallets are not only becoming, they’re a necessity for the modern wardrobe. And the Carbonlite Minimalist by slimTECH, spotted at this week’s Capsule show in New York City, is one of the coolest and slimmest we’ve seen, thanks to its simple yet ingenious design.

Consisting of two highly durable, wafer-thin plates of aerospace grade carbon fiber, this wallet is held together by industrial-grade EPDM tension rings that loop around corrugated edges and expand as you insert cards between the sleeves. (For some reason we had a sudden flashback of the diminutive rubber bands folks used to sport around dental braces back in the late 80s. Thankfully when we tried these out the bands didn’t snap but stretched to easily accommodate nine credit cards.) As a result, slimTECH’s design not only feels sensible but also eliminates unwanted bulk from leather stretched out over time by users.

Three additional innovations keep our interest: first, an optional strap that sits on the outside so you can quickly cram bills to receipts and business cards in; second, a built-in money clip that lays hidden when not in use (simply press on the outer edge to flip it up and insert your notes); and third, RFID shields on the inside of the wallets so you can block out worrisome RFID scanning devices used to steal ID and credit card info. If that isn’t reason enough to like Carbonlite, the company also offers a handful of universally appealing metallic finishes to choose from, along with two extra sizes and sets of tension rings in its starter kit. Say farewell to pocket bulges for good.

The best casual watches for men (to upgrade your everyday style)
Whatever hobby you love, these timepieces can go with you to the top of the mountain or the bottom of the ocean
Nixon Spectra gold watches for men in style.

A casual watch is the kind of timepiece that pairs excellently with all your outfits -- it’s the kind of accessory that becomes so trusted that, without even thinking, you reach to put it on every morning. Most casual watches serve function over fashion. They are rugged but still stylish. Generally, an excellent casual watch’s characteristics will separate it from higher-end watches.

The first is that a casual watch typically works better as an automatic versus a mechanical -- they’re meant to take some beatings, after all. Second, they shouldn’t be considered luxury items. A snakeskin watch strap and a gaudy twenty-thousand dollar wrist weight won’t work. At the end of the day, a casual watch will serve some good looks, but it’ll mainly function as a tool for your hobbies and your off time. Here are some of the best casual watches that won’t break the bank.
