Sometimes it’s easy to dismiss a leather product as poor because of a low price, but that’s the notion Albatross is trying to dismiss with their Natural Bifold and other aggressively priced, full grain, vegetable tanned leather goods.

Pocket-sized notebooks have always been around, but recently more and more people seem to have these handy little things to whip out and quickly write something down.

Deceptively Simple Minimal Thin Leather Wallets – $45 & $50

Range Leather Gannett Wallet Review – $45

I credit host Monty Hall of Let’s Make A Deal with the quote “Good things come in small packages.” While he wasn’t the first person to utter the quote, we all understand his meaning – sometimes what’s inside the little box is going to be worth far more than what’s behind the large door. Such is the case with the resurgence of interest in minimalist wallets. Leather crafters have responded to this interest, and with …

Being on the review staff at BestLeather I’ve seen more wallets than the back pocket of a pair of Levi’s 501s.
