In today’s age, where clothing in general has gotten much more slimmer and form fitting, your wallet should also follow suit. Let’s face it, there’s no real reason you should be carrying a huge bulky wallet.
Keirin Cut Jeans, the makers of athletic cut jeans, are diving into the leather accessories business, starting with wallets. They’ve sent me a few different leather wallets, but one of them stands out much more than the others, and that’s their super slim wallet. While empty, it feels like the thickness of about 4 credit cards. So adding in your own few cards won’t bulk it up too much more.
What’s nice about this kind of slim wallet is that you hardly even notice it in your front pocket. And yes you should be carrying your wallet in your front pocket…your back will thank you later in life.
But I highly recommend this product. It’s super lightweight, tasteful logo which keeps the overall look simple, and will look better with age. It may not be available for pre-order yet, but should be in the near future.
Transitioning to a Slim Wallet
Need some help transitioning to a slim wallet? Here’s what to do. Only carry your essential cards. Got pictures in your wallet? Get rid of them because you have a smartphone to store pics. Membership cards? Put them in a separate wallet and leave it in the glove compartment of your car. And you can do the same with extra cards and such. Pick your most important few credit/debit cards, your drivers license/ID, and free yourself of bulk. Trust me, you will not miss it, and wished you had done it sooner.
