Summer is here, so that means layering will face a dramatic decrease. One thing that I notice about most men, myself included, is that we don’t really address our pocket baggage. So, while we will cut down on the amount of clothing pieces we have on, our pockets don’t get the same treatment.
I don’t know about you, but my wallet is the main offender. I have so many things inside, from old receipts to business cards, which makes it really bulky. And contrary to popular belief, “fat” wallets are not appealing because they distract from your look. Think about it, have you ever seen a guy wearing a great outfit, but it’s ruined because of a big, thick rectangular block on his thigh…exactly!
Your accessories, which include your wallet, should complement your look. Not steal the show. With that being said, this is where card cases come into play. Streamlined to represent classic minimalism, card cases offer an easy and sleek solution to keep only the essentials close at hand. In other words, you can only take what’s important—eliminating the bulk.
Recently, I came across the California-born brand JAQET, which specializes in hand-crafted goods and instantly I was hooked. JAQET was founded in 2013 by designer Jacques Flynn who wanted create leather goods that were streamlined, timeless, and durable—similar to a well-tailored suit. What drew me to the brand was the craftsmanship of its product, especially their re-imagined wallets. Not only are the wallets crafted from high-grade handsome leather, but they add a functional, luxurious addition to your daily accessories without breaking the bank. In addition, the leather is not overly treated, so it allows for the wallet to age and develop into a piece that is unique to me.
As I mentioned earlier, your accessories should be an addition not the focus. I was looking for a refined choice to house my essentials and I found that missing link in the sleek, rich leather of JAQET wallets.
