The Field Notes brand of notebooks debuted in 2007, and since then have become a staple in many people’s everyday carry gear thanks to their small, convenient size. Of course, these stylish notebooks are ripe for the invention of many different kinds of holders, folders, and wallets to keep them safe. One such option is the simple and attractive Tyler Field Notes Wallet from Byline Supply Co, based in Portland, OR.
ABOUT BYLINE SUPPLY CO.
Austin Boyd founded Byline Supply Co for well-made American heritage goods was born from a leather belt his grandfather made years ago. He appreciated the quality of the same experience to people today. These goods told the story of the owner, even after they had passed. This ideal is what Austin and his team strive for, making sure each piece is handcrafted entirely from USA-sourced materials. From their website: “We exist to help you live your legacy, and give you a piece of true American heritage.”
The Tyler Field Notes Wallet is made with 3-4 oz Hermann Oak leather in a natural, undyed color. The edges are waxed and burnished, giving it a nice finished look. The 3-4 oz leather is a great choice – it gives the wallet a slim profile while staying nice and sturdy. The Hermann Oak leather softens and darkens with more use. It gradually becomes easier to open and lay flat but keeps its shape well.
FUNCTION & AESTHETIC
The Tyler Field Notes Wallet contains two inside pockets to carry a notebook or passport, along with two card slots. It has space to hold a Field Notes journal which measure 3-1/2” wide by 5-1/2” tall.
The wallet comes in three color options – tan, brown, and natural. The natural color will naturally darken around the edges and develop a nice patina with more use. Its shape and style is rustic yet modern – perfect for stylish people who want to stay organized without being flashy.
The Tyler Field Notes Wallet is a nice little accessory to have around, especially if you want to get in the habit of writing things down more often. It’s slim and easy to carry, and can be used as a wallet or card holder for further consolidating your every day carry belongings. This is a high quality, American-made piece that will keep your notes and doodles safe for years to come. The Tyler Wallet is currently on sale for only $47.50 (usually $95), which is an incredible deal. Snatch one up while you can (and maybe grab some extras as gifts)!
