I’m the kind of person that likes to have very little in my wallet, and I like to carry a very small compact wallet in my back pocket. I don’t like the idea of sitting on some thick lumpy chunk of leather, and the idea of having to take it out of my pocket every time I sit down seems rather stupid.
Now, with all that said, I have to say I am rather intrigued by Maison Martin Margiela‘s line 11 wallets. This line showcases an unconventional wooden wallet for the spring/summer 2011 mens collection.
The wallet is lined with supple calf-skin leather, and the exterior is made lacquered wood in a variety of stains. The wallet looks beautiful, and it looks like it would hold all my personal items, plus money and identification. As much as I like the idea of it and the way it looks, I doubt I would ever buy one. From the photos, the closed wallet looks like it is over half an inch thick. Sorry I don’t have enough padding on my rear end to offset the pain this thing would cause me.
