Fade of the Day – Billykirk No. 092 Card Case (8.5 Years)
Don’t you love it when the characters on your credit card fade into your leather wallet? It gives the wallet a nice personal flare, just like here on this Billykirk snap wallet with 8.5 years of year! Alex in Singapore sent us this black leather wallet for today’s Fade of the Day.
Black leather wallets made from full-grain leather usually develop distinct sharp folds that you can see when the light hits it right, producing a nice tonal effect to this wallet. The construction is still sound and the snaps appear to still be working too.
Alex uses this one in his front pocket for cards only, but keeps cash in his back pocket – an interesting carrying method. The pronounced card fades have given Alex a nicely worn in leather piece that’ll last for many more years, only enhancing the buttery soft texture and unique wear with use.
