Architect’s Wallet

$88.00

The Architect’s Wallet eliminates the multiple layers of paper-thin leather dividers of typical wallets, in favor of minimalism and usability. Instead of dozens of cute little slots, it incorporates a write-anywhere Fisher Space Pen in matte black, silver, or polished brass, and a take-anywhere extra small Moleskine Volant notebook (two included, purchase more on Amazon or at your local paper goods store) that is slightly larger than a credit card.

With space for three cards inside the notebook flap and five to ten in the thumb-slot pouch (tight fit at first, but the leather will stretch to fit over time), and space for some folded cash and receipts in either slot, the minimalist design will easily fit in the front pocket of all but the skinniest jeans, and the inherent stretch of the leather will conform to your pocket over time.

If you secretly want a purse in your pocket to carry around all of your club membership cards, Mr. Costanza, this is probably not the wallet for you.

If you appreciate the fact that this hand crafted, saddle-stitched piece of thick, rugged 5/6oz leather will very likely be the last wallet you ever have to purchase–in short, if you appreciate fewer high quality things, rather than more mediocre things–we guarantee that this will fit the bill(s).

Note: You should expect the notebook cover to get worn out if you don’t fill/swap it out quickly. If you would like to have a cover to protect the notebook from wear and tear, we suggest the Charette Wallet, a sister design to the Architect.

Available in an array of colors aside from those shown here. If you’d like a different color, you can just pick one of the options here and make a note in the ‘special instructions’ field with the color you’d like.

Dimensions: 87mm x 115mm (approximately 3-3/8″ x 4.5″)

    Monogram Location/Size Notes

    For monograms, we keep them on the smaller side, but visible. We size them based on the size of the product to maintain a proportional and classy look: near the closure on a watchband, on the bottom right front cover of notebooks, centered on the front of purses or clutches, etc.. If you prefer a different location, give us an idea here and we'll contact you to make sure we engrave where you'd like.

    Handwritten: you/your kids/your highly advanced dog writes a message on a piece of paper, you take a photo of it, we engrave it.

    Handwritten Message Upload*

    • (max file size 2 GB) $

    For best results, write clearly with a black pen (or fine-tip sharpie) on an unlined piece of white paper. Take a photograph of it with your phone from overhead with minimal shadows in good light. We'll contact you if we have issues with the photograph, but it's usually a pretty straightforward process. If you mess something up you can just scribble it out and write the word again; we'll make sure we have the text looking correct before we make your product.

    Message Location/Size Notes

    For engraved messages, we tend to place them more subtly on a product: The inside cover of a notebook, inside of a wallet, inside of a watchband/hidden when worn, etc., because they tend to be more 'personal' messages that usually want to be more discreet. If you prefer a different location, give us an idea here and we'll contact you to make sure we engrave where you'd like.

    Logo/Graphic/Artwork Upload*

    • (max file size 2 GB) $

    Black & white or three-color grayscale logos work best in the best resolution you have available (vector graphics--ai/eps/etc.--are even better). Feel free to contact us with questions on “engraveability” of your logo. Pricing assumes no photoshop/illustrator work necessary for logo to engrave well.

    Please don't ask us to engrave anything you don't have the rights to (team logos, etc.)

    Graphic location/size notes

    For corporate logos or graphics, we tend to engrave them more prominently on a product: Front of a notebook, outer cover of a wallet, etc. We'll contact you to finalize location after your order, but If you'd like to give us an idea where you'd like it that's great.

  • Anything you'd like to tell the maker as they're making your product?

    Maybe we asked you to include a special note in your order...or maybe you just wanna say you really like turtles. You do you.

    We can't guarantee that we can accommodate special requests, but we do our best.

    • $
  • Typically, we include a short 'thank you' note to the purchaser on the inside of the shipping box, because, well...thanks!

    But if you're getting this for someone else, it might be weird for them to see a note to you, so we'll gladly write a message to them from you instead. But maybe it'd be weird if it's not in your handwriting? Nah, probably not, should be cool. Worth the risk, isn't it?

    Anyway, you type it here and we'll write it for you--just don't be racist/homophobic/etc.; that won't make it on the box.
