I’m a front pocket wallet guy…and I’m also a minimalist when it comes to my EDC. I have been through a couple of front pocket wallets over the past year, and haven’t landed on the right solution. I used a traditional card case for quite some time, but it ended up stretching out to the point where it wasn’t functional. I recently got a good deal on the Bottega Veneta card case, but it isn’t a good case for carrying cash. The opening is tight, and pretty shallow, so folded bills stick out like a shark fin.
As you all know, the Mashburns have been having quite a sale, and I came across this card case when I was in Ann’s store yesterday afternoon. I immediately knew this was it. It holds 6-7 cards, and has a great slot for cash, all while staying ‘inside the lines’. It’s just a touch bigger than the traditional card case, but in no way too big for any front pocket. The leather is very soft, and thick enough to keep it’s form. So far, so good. I’ll report back after a couple weeks worth of work.
So the case is on sale at Ann Mashburn, and they have a few colors available. I got Navy blue, but the green is pretty nice as well…check out the whole collection here.
