Archslim Wallet


Designed in AutoCAD, like all of our products, this two slot wallet with integrated space for a notebook and Fisher Space pen is a mix of our original Architect Wallet and our newer Charette Wallet. It trades lighter weight leather than the Architect in order to provide dedicated card slots without the extra thickness of the cover on the Charette.

Two vertical credit card slots on the face of the wallet with a cutaway thumb slot on the bottom. Interior business card slit with space for receipts behind business cards, and another space for receipts/tickets/emergency cash between the back of the notebook and the credit card slots.

Laser cut from a single piece of Horween horsefront leather (thin, strong, low stretch, durable), folded and hand stitched with burnished edges.

Includes one Moleskine notebook, color may vary. Refills readily available online or at your local stationery store.

Dimensions: 109mm x 87mm (approximately 4-1/4″ x 3-3/8″).

“How do I know which color is which??” Select a leather color from the drop down menus below, and the photos will update to reflect your choice.

Engraving/Monogramming options

(input full name, NOT initials; we will style your engraving per your selection above)

Using a clean piece of unlined white paper (computer paper), hand write your message with a black pen–preferably even a sharpie so it will engrave nice and thick, then take a well lit photo of it with your phone and upload it here. Don’t worry if it’s crooked or you need to cross out a word and re-write it, we can adjust it all in photoshop. We’ll tweak as needed to make it engrave well and contact you prior to making to finalize location.

Gift Message OR Special Instructions

If you’d prefer a (Twitter-sized) gift message to the recipient, instead of our typical thank-you note to the purchaser, let us know what you’d like on the card. You can also include any special instructions we may have asked you for if you chatted with us via email/messenger so we can make sure your order is perfect. Or, tell us what bourbon we really need to check out, or your favorite meme format…you’ve got 420 characters, go wild.

Archslim Wallet

FFF Wallet/Notebooks

I've been a Customer for over 5-6 years since the Architect 's introduction. All there work is with top of the line leather. Theirworkmanship is perfect. Their design is the best available win form an functionality. When I need a special gift for a very special person in mt life I turn to the FFF site. These are all heirloom products...your grandchildren will fight over them when you're gone. Customer service is beyond compare. Buy with confidence that their art is bbeyond compare anywhere in the universe...seriously.

Gets better every day

After seeing FFF products around for several years, finally took the jump as self-xmas present this year during black friday. When i first got the wallet, felt a bit stiff an unable to hold all the stuff my previous 5 pocket card case from Rugby Ralph Lauren (had it for 6 years now). However, the wallet continues to break in, and it keeps getting better with age. I love having a notebook/pen on me at all times- forces me to codify my thoughts and capture the moment (rather than getting lost in my phone). Highly reccomend.

Keeping this for the long haul

I owned both sizes, initially the Rhodia size before losing it and replacing it with the Moleskine. Having both, I prefer the Moleskine, the loss in notebook size does not outweigh the compact form factor. Plus, with only 2 card slots vs. the 3, it forces me to be more selective of what I stuff in my wallet and ultimately results in a smaller (if only slightly) bulge in my pocket. You will be happy with either, I came from a card holder wallet so the smaller of the two is welcomed, thanks Shawn!


I am unsatisfied with this wallet. Having gone some distance with it, I feel I have valid experience to share.

I love the idea, a slim wallet with pad and paper buily right into its profile. This is the well done part, and what netted the purchase.

But then reality. The notebook portion itself is completely exposed, and consequently not fit for sustaining the wear of daily use. The cover will peel away, the actually book will bend, and the edges will tear. This is what happened to me in the course of normal or perhaps even light use.

I did not use the pen frequently, and as its holder was also not fit for normal daily use, it was easily lost. So now torn, peeled notebook and empty pen holder... the wallet certainly looked great to start with, but does not even approach reasonable expectation for sturdiness.

On the reverse side, the leather has stretched so have to keep multiple cards in each pocket or they slide out.

I wouldn'y recommend buying this, and wish I hadn't. It's a terrific idea. It's physical appearance is stunning and seems impressive. But this thing is expensive and doesn't account for reality, or reasonable expectations for daily use.

Hello; we're very sorry that you're not happy with your wallet. Please send an email over and we will get you taken care of, either with a charette wallet (the cover over the notebook may work better for you), or a refund of your purchase. We definitely don't want you feeling like you are stuck with a wallet you're not completely happy with, especially one that sounds as if it was from a fluke, overly stretchy piece of leather.
Great wallet

Slim and yet really functional. I was a little worried about its capacity to carry cards at first, but the leather expands just to the right tension with use.

Archslim wallet

For the guy who frequently needs to jot a quick note but wants a slim wallet, the archslim accomplishes both and looks fantastic.
