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 can't leave the house without having a pen on you, this is your wallet.
My wallet game has been a constant progression since my first one. Long behind are the days of that loud, Velcro, anti-mating call sounding tri-fold. No more do I carry a wallet with a chain, for I do not carry in the back giving me hip dysplasia. I shan't ever revive the flashy Nixon bi-fold in an attempt to show off how edgy I am.
In all seriousness, this is probably the last wallet I will ever have. Not only does it have that premium build and feel, but the smell of quality leather is intoxicating. I detest taking notes on my phone, so the notebook and pen is a god send. Might I add the admiration you gain from whipping this bad boy out, like a full well groomed beard, this wallet shows confidence and commands respect. I have people compliment me on it almost every time I have to use it. I will also note that I might have been the first person to receive a modified new variant of the Architect, with two slots on the opposite side of the notebook, instead of the single side pocket. Get this one if you can, but don't ask for an ID window. If you do, then you must also need to cork the end of your forks for safety.
The only tips I would give is to carry the wallet in your front pocket (where it belongs), and to have the card slots face down. The notebook will wear slower if you don't have it against your leg. I will be buying future products from this guys. $1000 products for around $100, they're the pound for pound leather good making champs. Thanks FFF.
Guys i work construction labor. In fact i did concrete. This wallet has shocked me. I have no idea why but this damn thing has been covered in concrete many times and beaten to shit. I don't understand why it looks the way it does.
I've had 2 of these in the past; one I gave as a gift and the other one, by puppy chewed! I was stoked to order another one because I used my old one constantly. Loved the little pen and everything about it. The new version has improved stitching and workmanship, and the previous one was also great. The owner was super helpful to me in the ordering process when I was having issues processing the order and even gave me a discount for helping him sort out the issue because they were updating the pay-wall and trouble-shooting. Really great experience all around and the delivery process was really fast as well. incredibly stoked to have this gear back in my life.
Didn't see an option to edit my initial review, but wanted to update that I was sent a replacement un-prompted, and it looks on point. Happy doing business with FFF!
Looks a bit more worn/irregular upon arrival than I expected, given the pictures on the site, but I am ok with the look. I am into the minimalist thing when it comes to my edc, but was looking for a change to something more classy and quality, and this scratches the itch perfectly.
I’m a full time science fiction and fantasy novelist. Even with technology being as awesome as it is today, I don’t always have time to pull out a device for jotting down notes and ideas - which might come at any time.
Enter the notebook/pen/wallet combo!
Because it’s my wallet, I always have it with me, so I always have a space to write down notes to review later. Sure, I also have my iPhone - but there’s something organic about writing the idea down which gets lost a little bit in typing it onto a screen. Probably just that I grew up with notebooks instead of smartphones, but it works for me.
The quality is excellent. The minimalist nature of this wallet means I’m not carrying around a ton of junk - just the essentials. Overall, I think this is an incredible tool, and I strongly recommend it.
My boyfriend is a mechanical engineer and is always looking for paper to jot things down so this wallet is perfect because he doesn’t leave the house without it. Also, the craftsmanship is beautiful and I loved the personalized note written on the lid of the box it came in. Smiles all around!
