I’ve never really liked leather wallets; the way they stretch to fit just about whatever you can shove in is a recipe for disaster. Over the years I’ve tried many alternatives, and compromised with a money clip until I came across these little gems from a German firm that truly makes things the way they used to. Hansaware offers an incredible range of nickel and brass cases, sized to hold anything from contact lenses through eyeglasses. Manufactured using the original tools dating to the 20′s and 30′s, their deco-cool retro look is the real deal. And best of all, a cigarette case perfectly sized for credit cards won’t expand… no matter how hard you try to pack in that extra Starbucks card, this is a wallet that forces you to carry just what you need and no more. A distinctive way to stash your cash and keep your pocket bulge-free, $25-35 depending on style and materials.
