Minimalist Slim Wallet From TheLeatherShop.com
The Slim Wallet is another cool piece of gear from TheLeatherShop.com. Made with minimalism in mind, the Slim Wallet does a great job holding your gear while passing unnoticed in your pockets!

Hand built in Seattle, WA, the Slim Wallet is made of hand dyed and glazed saddle leather sewn with waxed thread and reinforced with fancy brass rivets. The wallet sports two main compartments designed to easily hold 5-6 cards and a few bills without adding (almost) any bulk to your pockets! Other than the functional side of the Slim Wallet I must mention it’s high build quality – the guys from The Leather Shop did a great job detailing this wallet – the company logo and the store brand are nicely embossed on the sides of the wallet, the shinny brass rivets close the sewing lines on each end and the bottom and the top of the wallet are nicely decorated with hand made linear cuts in the leather …

ALSO CHECK the Stitch-less Leather Rivet Wallet, the Stitch-Less Leather Rivet Card Holder and the Palm Wallet from TheLeatherShop.com.

When I initially saw the Slim Wallet, my first thought was that it’s open pocket format will not hold my gear securely and I am in danger of loosing my cash and cards when using it. Well, after three weeks of usage, the Slim Wallet never let me down! It’s ingenious design secures the cash and the cards by applying lateral pressure when flat and allows easy access to the inside gear when the wallet is squeezed from both sides – check the video to see a live demonstration of how secure the cash and the cards are inside the wallet.

The Slim Wallet is available in tan and will set you back decent $40 US. Check out TheLeatherShop.com for more information about the Slim Wallet and to order one.

Stitch-less Leather Rivet Wallet by The Leather Shop
About a week ago I received my Leather Rivet Wallet from TheLeatherShop.com.
As you already know by now, and if you don’t, you learn it now, I have a sensibility for cool wallets. I own over 15 wallets and I like to constantly change them depending on my daily activities and my mood! So, knowing the Moose Brand (the leather gear brand behind The Leather Shop) and the high quality of their work from the two items I previously reviewed (the Palm Wallet and the Rivet Card Holder), I was looking forward to receive this new model!

When I first received the Rivet Wallet, I must admit I was a bit afraid it will not provide enough interior space for the basic stuff I like to have on me on daily bases. But, after using it for a week, I must admit (again!!!) that I was wrong, and it did provide more than enough interior space, while keeping the whole package slim and almost undetectable in my pants front pocket (don’t ask me why I keep my wallets in the front pocket, it’s a long story … but basically, because someone with bad intentions has to try twice harder to steal it than from the back pockets)!

I constantly held with me 3 credit cards, 1 ID card, a couple of bills for cash purchases, 4-5 business cards and a flash storage unit (either a micro SD card in a SD adapter or a slim USB drive). The Rivet wallet handled the task very well, and was a real head turner.

On the technical side, the Rivet wallet is made of one piece of folded saddle American leather, held together by a leather strip secured with two brass rivets. There are no stitches, zippers or buttons. The used leather is from the bend of a cow hide (the bend is the most expensive part of a hide and unlike the shoulder or belly – it does not warp), is hand dyed, glazed, and edge burnished. The entire manufacturing process takes place in US with US originating materials.
The Moose Rivet wallet comes in regular saddle leather with three tones available – Natural, Yellow and Tan (the one in the pics and video below is the Tan model) and in Shell Cordovan leather (available in Black and Dark Brown). Perfect for a gift to someone close to you … or to yourself, why not!?!

Check the video and the photo gallery in the post for a full hands-on review and visit TheLeatherShop.com for more info and buy one.
