Aestus Gear Vegetable Tanned Card Wallet – $32.50

The simple wallet is so refreshing. Cards and cash. That’s all you need. If you have more, get a wallet like this and your butt won’t look like it’s been gorging on receipts.

It’s been rumored (by me) that tri-fold wallets were invented by chiropractors as a part of a shady plan to rule the world by indenturing us to their services. That’s what my sources say. Incidentally they were all recently killed in freak spinal adjustment accidents.

So, don’t let these chiropractors get out of control. Go slim.

the operation

Quinn & Leah, of Aestus Gear in Vernal, UT operate a small simple operation on Etsy selling simply sophisticated vegetable tanned leather items. They make two camera straps and a very simple wallet at exceptional prices.

I have had the distinct pleasure of carrying this wallet for the past few months. It’s not fresh anymore. It’s been lived with. That’s the beauty of vegetable tanned goods, they just age with their environment. Hence the ink imprint from a sticky-note I left in it for a while.

durability

Aestus Gear is using top quality beeswax thread and solid 2mm vegetable tanned leather. When the wallet arrived it engulfed the room in that newly-opened-leather perfume.

At this point, four months into daily use, the wallet shows no signs of poor construction. Since there is only one side that gets stitched there isn’t much to get wrong with such solid thread. Very well made.

functionality

Card and cash. Nothing more, nothing less. Light and easy to carry. Perfect.

Simple is the ultimate sophistication.

  1. No Mitchell Leather wallet? They make some outstanding stuff, not to mention ridiculously nice briefcases.

    • They do. There are many great companies out there. As of yet we have not had the opportunity to review any of their goods. Thanks for the question!
