Franklin was a successful inventor, writer, publisher, diplomat, drafter/signer of our Declaration of Independence, abolitionist, entrepreneur, and networker. Another true Renaissance man and Mission Man.
Our Benjamin Collection is an intentional nod (and wink!) to good ole Ben, who would have felt right at home grabbing his namesake collection as his EDC (everyday carry for your Benjamins). In fact, social critic David Brook called Franklin our founding Yuppie. Intentionality was our emphasis, from the hand-selected, marbled, twice-tanned leather (both chrome and vegetable tanning) to the rich yet simplistic lines visible in each Benjamin leather good. We can imagine Mr. Franklin proudly carrying his collection on the streets of Philadelphia, Paris, or anywhere in the world his business or exploits might take him.
Where will your adventures take you with the Benjamin by your side?
When the call is for traveling light, this lean, minimalist chrome/veg re-tanned offering carries the basics comfortably. Dark grey fabric lines the ID window and this front pocket wallet is otherwise the same item that comes with our bi-fold wallet replete with matching aesthetics, but we sell it separately for those who prefer a leaner alternative to the bulk of a classic wallet. With nearly every financial and commercial transaction migrating to mobile devices, some eagerly embrace the nimble ease of a cashless lifestyle. Now they need not sacrifice the lifelong gratification of carrying a wallet rich with character.
Got this for my girlfriend for Christmas, she was looking for a slim front pocket wallet. Ordered it on 'Cyber Monday' and received it a week later with the free shipping option. The wallet is gorgeous, well made, and beautifully packaged. The pockets were all tight to start out, but as it's leather they've molded perfectly with time to the cards she keeps in there . It's worth noting that unlike some wallets, this doesn't have any plastic or anything over the ID slot. I personally like this because I think the plastic looks cheap and doesn't do anything anyway.
