Charette Wallet

$108.00

This three-card-slot wallet includes the write-anywhere Fisher Space Pen that we’re so fond of (here with a clip in matte black, silver, or polished brass options) and holds an included Rhodia A7 pocket size notebook. We like this wallet as an alternative to our original notebook wallet–the Architect’s Wallet–because it adds a cover to keep the notebook from getting beat up if you’re not changing it out often enough, and dedicated card slots in a slightly larger footprint.

Dimensions: 123mm x 98mm (approximately 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″).

    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.

From FL to ME in record time!

My other half does the subtle Christmas nudge: a text message link to what he's like to magically appear under the tree. And this year is was a F.F.F. wallet with space pen and "wittle" notebook.. with his initials! Super easy, online order from my phone- just had to turn it horizontally to view the cart button. BUT somehow I missed the "expedite shipping" option- Thankfully I DM'ed F.F.F. in Instagram and they got back to me THE SAME DAY and Santa had that wallet wrapped and under the tree in time for the holiday! It arrived in a clean white box, and inside were my personalized gifts (I also ordered the Timex 40mm Cobalt Chronograph watch for my father) in small cloth gift bags.. and a personal note- handwritten- into the top of the box! Very nice touch!

Spence opted for the Charette Wallet in Latte with a Chrome pen.. (I was surprised because he's a trained architect that he didn't run with the adorable branding of "The Architects Wallet" BUT he LOVES it! He was carrying a single pocket, really minimalist wallet from FlowFold.. Which now just houses extra gift cards at our front door key dish.

The initials came out perfectly- although if you were looking for them to pop- they don't. It's a very low key vibe. Like a: Oh yeah, no biggie, I just carry my whole life in my back pocket, kinda vibe. Where my wallet from LV has bright and bold, painted bedazzlement- Spence has hipster cool.

He already owns three watches from F.F.F. and I expect that we'll be placing more orders in the not too distant future!

Heirloom Wallet

So I stumbled upon this amazing company a little more than a year ago when I was browsing wallets on the internet, my Coach wallet was beginning to fall apart after about a couple of years and I desperately needed a replacement. I came across the Charrette and knew this was what I wanted. I love to jot notes sometimes on the go, and the beauty and functionality definitely appealed to me. I reached out to Shawn and asked for the XS version and some customizations. The final product I received checked all the boxes and exceeded all my expectations. The best part is that this is USA made which is something I actively search for when making purchases. It makes all the difference. Thank you Shawn!!!

Wallet with pen and pad

A very nice, expensive wallet. It’s good quality and it should last. I love the look of it. And it wears well in my side pocket or my back pocket. I have to keep an eye on the pen because it fell to the ground once already after only a week. Probably the leather loops that hold the pen should be a little smaller so you have to force it in so it cannot fall out accidentally. I’d be pissed if I lost the pen, but it’s a chance I took when I bought it because other reviewers have mentioned this. For this price there should be zero flaws, zero. Still it’s a five star wallet for quality and concept and execution. Tighten up the pen loop and it would be a perfect wallet.

The Best

Hands down the best wallet I’ve ever owned in my life. So good that it wears in after half a year and fits even better. Allows you to capture everything and anything. Simply the best.

Best wallet ever

So I had placed my order for a sweet new multi function wallet/mini note pad. Thinking how could this really get any better. And that’s when it did. Shawn has reached out to me(good thing I used my real number) because the attention to detail and wanting me to have the best wallet I could get went over a number of different fonts with me that were outside of the normal offering which was awesome cause we found the perfect one. Then he explained how it will be a nice subtle yet classy engraving to add to the already sweet look of the leather. So moral of my story is that I’m super happy with the over all experience and even happier with my new wallet. 10/10 would fully recommend to anyone looking for a simple yet multi functional wallet

Great wallet, extremely well made and the design is well thought out and executed. Not many products out there combine functionality and usefulness with very high quality. But this wallet does. EXCELLENT customer service as well. What a find! I will be purchasing more items. Thanks a lot!!

Just what I wanted

I stared at this wallet for about a year before I finally bought it. I like to have a notebook and a pen with me, and I was tired of the added bulk in my back pocket. This was a perfect solution! And it shipped in a timely manner. I look forward to all the compliments I will get when I pull it out in the future to jot something down. Thanks, folks!

Awesome product

Basically exactly what I was looking for. Leather is good quality. I feel like this is something I'll be able to pass down to the next generation, and that's pretty cool.
