When you’ve had clothing or leather goods for a long time, often the first thing to go is the stitching. It’s a huge pain in the ass – for me at least – because I’m absolutely useless with a sewing machine — meaning I have to tap up a professional to get my stuff fixed.
If you’re like me and useless with DIY, consider Loyal Stricklin’s Johnny wallet. Made in the USA from a single piece of Italian vegetable-tanned leather, the Johnny wallet is both sleek and minimalistic with no stitching used at all in the construction. Built with one pocket which has been split for cash and cards, the wallet folds into itself for a clean silhouette when not in use. If longevity is your thing, Johnny B Goode. Pun intended.
The Italian Veg Tan Johnny wallet comes in a couple of colorways – chestnut and olmo pueblo – both of which will patina like nobody’s business over time. Loyal Stricklin’ says it best: durable, simple, rugged. What more could you want?
