Continuation of WX2 Military leather goods, this week we release the Naval wallet.
The idea came about when we first handled our supplies of these Blue Cavalier Chromexcel Leathers (Horween). What we saw was a wavy ‘sea of blue leathers’ when stacking the hides on the shelf. All it took was someone to cry out, we should do something for the Navy. And that is how it all started.
Standing at 5″ tall, this wallet is perfect for any backpockets. Brown threads contrasting the blue leather with a curve cut on the leather flap.
The buttons hidden for the closure is with a reason as we want to make use of the pull-up characteristics of the chromexcel leather for the buttons to create impressions on the leather surface. Showing different tones of blue and adding character to the wallet just like the cool characters of those Naval boys.
Imagining the life of the seamen out in the ocean, they would often want to keep a picture or two of those whom they want to remember – their loved ones. These precious pictures must be kept with security as well as carry along all the time. To fulfill this, the extra leather flap with buttons closure ensures that.
Instead of building a ‘window screen’ for the pictures to be seen easily, we would like you to put the pictures in the hidden slot (behind the card slots). The reason is simple, this is a Naval wallet, designed with a sailor’s lifestyle in mind. Not a wallet for you to flip out conveniently to show your pass to enter office building.
