Probably the greatest wallet ever

BEHOLD! It is the greatest wallet ever created. It was as though the heavens themselves hand crafted this rugged multi-function front pocket wallet and then allowed the brilliant bastards from Form-Function-Form take the credit for it.

It holds money cards and all of that other boring crap, but it also combines OTHER NON-WALLET THINGS INTO IT! Like what you say? Christ man, get off my back, I’m getting there and you’re impatience isn’t helping.

Err. I mean.

It combines a damn Fisher Space Pen and a friggin Moleskine Volant notepad into it! I simply have to have it. I mean, cmon, it combines the greatest pen and the greatest notepad 1)Note: Pen and notepad are classified as ‘greatest’ only due to their retail price as compared to the same items from other makersinto a wallet, which makes said wallet the greatest one ever PURELY by proxy! If it actually works as a wallet, that is even better!

I’ve had my wallet in my front pocket for about as long as I can remember. Which was a bit of bitch back in the days before it was ‘ok’ for a dude to actually do that. I had to use your basic back pocket bifold/trifold monstrosity and it always looked weird and you could feel it with every step.  Or you could use a money clip, which comes as no surprise is great for holding money, but fails at everything else. Though a lot of people used cigarette cases for their wallet, but honestly I’m not that smart and never thought of it.

So I just put up with it until everyone else started doing it, and then FREE MARKET CAPITALISM GO!
But even now most front pocket wallets kind of suck. They either use a gimicky magnet thing that is amazing at setting off airport scanners and de-magnetizing credit cards in said wallet. On the package, they proudly state that it’s for holding money. From my experience it will do just that, but lets hope to hell you carry no more than 3 bills around because if you do you are screwed! And really, why are you carrying untraceable currency anyway instead of using trackable credit cards as is the American way? Are you a damn commie?

Anyway, after trying many different front pockets, I finally settled on this one by Fossil 2)Fossil is like the Daewoo of accessories. If it can go in a pocket, be strapped around a wrist/waist/leg, or in any way be added to your body, Fossil makes some version of it.. It’s bifold, has a nice metal money clip in the middle, holds enough cards on the outside, and even some on the inside. Not super sturdy, but it works. They apparently no longer sell my exact version, so here’s a few pics

Anyway, ever since I’ve seen that Architect’s Wallet, I simply must have it. But damn it I always forget how much I covet it until I’m broke. So.. yeah… you can go ahead and buy it for me if you.
