Enduring Classic

The Tri-Fold Wallet

There's something about a tri-fold wallet. Maybe it's the old-school masculine charm. Or maybe it's that fluid unfolding after being produced from your pocket. Perhaps it's the fact that you can neatly store all your necessary cards, a driver's license and even a few crisp bills without bulking up your backside. After all, it's a wallet, not a sandwich—keeping things lean means ditching the ATM receipts (and the dream that you're ever going back for the nine burritos needed to cash in on the free tenth one).  This beauty, by southern leather company Moore & GIles, will hold everything you need. Crafted in Virginia from leather tanned with wax in Northern Italy, it has the rich, varied colors you'd expect from a piece you've had for decades.
