The Launch

Landmarks
& Lions

The only downside to losing the coats and jackets this time of year is the loss of pocket real estate. There's less room to stash stuff when you're relegated to the five pockets of your slim fit selvedge jeans. So we're all for space-saving measures like the wallets and phones cases from Landmarks & Lions, a new line of affordable accessories out of Minnesota. The line is the brainchild of Canyon Crosby, a travel junkie who crafts each piece by hand in his Minneapolis studio. The supple leather wallets are made from lambskin and goatskin—thinner hides that allow the sleek and sturdy wallets to fit an iPhone (or other smartphones) along with your necessary cards and cash. What's more, a soft felt or cotton lining helps clean your phone's screen each time you pull it out. Just don't let a pickpocket swipe it ... because you won't even be able to call and cancel your credit cards.

Answer

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
