Wallets: I hate them, but having loose coins in your pocket which fall out every time you sit down is worse. Especially in a country where the coins are actually worth something. Right now I have a typically over-engineered German wallet which will probably last me forever, but I like the look of SF Bags’ new Finn. It’s flat, it holds cash and cars and – if you pick the bigger model – it also has space for your iPhone.
The Finn comes in two sizes and six autumn-y colors. The 25 holds 20-ish cards plus “a nice wad of cash,” and the 27 is a little wider, accommodating your iphone 5. Both have self-locking YKK zippers which open up on two sides, letting you get into the wallet without letting everything fall out.
The price isn’t bad either: $35 for a hand=stitched Italian leather wallet. And if it’s up to Waterfield’s usual high standards it should last you a good long while.
