For all their utility, most wallets are still too bulky for guys to comfortably and discreetly carry in their back pocket.
Enter the most successful wallet project in Kickstarter history and our pick for the best alternative to the traditional bifold: the TGT (pronounced “tight”) wallet.
Brooklyn designer Jack Sutter got the idea for the wallet from a friend who was using a rubber band from a broccoli stem to hold his cards and cash. It was perfect, simple, and small in his pocket. Likewise, TGT wallets offer comfort, lightness, and ample pocket space; and they afford guys the ability to leave unnecessary bags at home. They’re also handmade in the US by local craftsmen and artisans.
TGT wallets come in a variety of different colours; the Americana pictured here has red, white, and blue stripes and is a customer favourite. The Deluxe version of the Americana wallet retails for about $A58. Have a closer look below:
About that leather: TGT conducted a global search of leather tanneries to find the finest, softest, and most elastic lambskin in the world.
Its simple construction eliminates bulk, fits everything you need, and slides effortlessly into your tightest pocket.
