Fade of the Day – Stock & Barrel No. 55 Wallet (5 Months)
They sure know how to break in wallets over in Philadelphia. Or at least Paul Washington does because his Stock & Barrel No.55 Leather Bi-Fold Wallet is the subject of today’s Fade of the Day. Paul has been getting his patina reps in every day for five months and the results have made the commitment worth it.
The exterior of this veg tan wallet has a great natural patina with pockets of more subtle and more exaggerated aging which give the wallet a one-of-a-kind appearance. Just as the leather’s exterior patina was dictated by where the wallet was worn in the pants, the interior aging was dictated by the actual items put into the wallet. For instance, the interior pockets have formed perfectly and begun to darken around the cards they hold. All of these elements contribute to what make Paul’s wallet his own. For all the work that has been done on this thing, there is a lot more to get out of it and for what we are excited to see what happens.
