Wallets. I have them.

Somehow, I’ve become a bit of a collector of wallets made of paper. Here’s one of them.

Grey Wallet
My current choice. It’s not leather, believe it or not!

 

It’s called a Mighty Wallet, and is made by the folks over at Dynomighty.

At first, I was a bit skeptical of using folded paper as a wallet, but it both grows on one and has some practical use. In a way, it forces a more disciplined use of the wallet. I mean, everybody knows about the “old man” wallet, the one your dad (or other elder wallet user) has that is so massive that it closely resembles a small, leather-bound brick. I never liked having that feeling in any pocket. Since it’s paper and folded (not stitched), you’re less inclined to overfill it since that would push the seams apart. Since I do not carry a lot of cash or cards, this is great.

Also, dropping a bulging wallet can sometimes be quite embarrassing, especially when cards fall out.

A cool thing about the particular wallets I’ve collected is that they can also be pretty good conversation-starters (I have a Batman wallet, for example), but that’s not just due to the fact they’re made of paper, but more due to there being some pretty interesting designs available, of which I have a few.
