I’m carrying 3 wallets on me.
Yeah, tricky to tell I know. But that’s kinda the point. No one should ever be able to see your wallet. Ever. Nothing ruins a great look like a giant bulge in your jacket…or your pants for that matter. Wait, that came out wrong.
I personally have 2 wallets, an everyday piece with a coin pouch and every single card I own and then a slim little card wallet for those nights out on the town – when I wanna avoid the awkward bulge. The truth is, I don’t even need the big guy, I barely even use it, I’ve had it for about 10 years now and it’s probably time for it to find a home in my bottom drawer. Sorry, I was just thinking out loud there for a bit.
Anyway, lets get back to the 3 wallets story shall we. The guys at Distil Union asked me to take a look at their collection of Wally Wallets. The philosophy behind the design was slimming down the wallet without loosing functionality. So I decided to put them to a little slim test.
3 wallets no bulges. Boom.
Okay, I really shouldn’t have stuck one in my back pocket because you couldn’t see it anyway but you get the point right? The trick with keeping these guys slim is the pull tab technology that lets you store your cards tightly and neatly while still giving you easy access to them. What that essentially does is remove the extra layers of leather used for card slots and makes your wallet slimmer. The guys at distill union are pretty serious about making wallets slimmer, they even offer a ‘Fat Wallet Fix‘ tutorial to help you slim down to your essentials.
Clever packaging and quirky quotes aside these wallets are really well made, the leather is super soft and you can just feel how well it will age. The Pull-Tab tech works smoothly and Distil Union has also introduced a FlexLock™ mechanism – a spring-steel pocket that keeps your contents secured even as the leather stretches.
I wouldn’t mind finding one of these guys under the Christmas tree this year, even if it is labeled ‘from Sergio to Sergio’. Maybe you’ll do the same, if so use product code WMBW15 and get 15% off your Distil Union order till January 1st 2017.
Okay. Stay fancy.
