Wallets That Fit The Bill – But Won’t Break The Bank

A wise man once said “ I just purchased a wallet, and now I have nothing to put into it.” Okay, maybe that’s not a real quote, but as much as we admire and respect the handsome craftsmanship of a $1,300 Hermès wallet, there is absolutely nothing worse than buying something that holds your money- and having nothing left to put in it. Actually, there is something worse, having your wallet stolen, or losing a wallet that costs more than the items inside. That is why we are bringing you a neat selection of wallets at an affordable price. They’re basically a steal.

Bison Made’s medium sized wallet is handmade in the USA with no glue, rubber, lining, no nonsense.  – $110

-Feeling a little green these days? We hope not. But this green leather wallet is perfect for fall. – $95

-Speaking of color…if you’re the kinda guy that needs a little extra security – and by security we mean a zipper so all that left over change doesn’t fall out, look no further than this Comme des Garçon wallet with a blue metal zipper. – $135

-J. Crew does a great job at sticking to the basics. This wallet is classic. Beautiful brown leather, eight card slots, cash sleeve, two receipt pouches – and for $45. Holy moly.

-We have to give some major props to Jack Spade. Remember those duct tape wallets you once tried to make? Well Spade is about to give you some major nostalgia. Fine grain calfskin + trompe l’oeil = 80 bucks. Check it out at Jack Spade online.

Steven Kurutz and American Giant endeavor to create a flannel 100% American made
Follow American Giant to bring flannel back to the USA

What makes the flannel shirt something that stays with us here in America? Is it the quintessential garment of the American worker? Does it make us feel as though we are driving horses across the plains in the old American West? How about working the day away, clearing logs from the Pacific Northwest to supply the entire country with the lumber needed to build houses, decks, and shop fronts? Or maybe we don't have to reach back as far to imagine the flannel renaissance of the 1990s bringing us the nostalgia of our childhood imitating Kurt Cobain on stage. Either way, the flannel is a staple of Americana, and American fashion brand American Giant has spent years attempting to bring that garment back home.

What started out as an article in the New York Times blossomed into a half-decade journey for author Steven Kurutz to chronicle AG's desire to bring flannel-making back to the shores of the United States and to save factory jobs in his new book, American Flannel. As a native of a small town in Pennsylvania, Kurutz has watched his town wither away as factory jobs were shipped overseas. For him, the book was more than a story of American determination; it was a personal connection to a quest to save his own hometown and others like it.
