Everlane Fold-Over Wallet Review
You didn't think I would just keep quiet about my new everlane wallet, did you? Nope. I love this thing, and here's why...
It's thin without compromising functionality.
The "wallet" I was using before was thin too. It wasn't as much a wallet as just a leather card pouch. It seemed great in theory. But the reality was me taking a full minute to find my driver's license. Since all the cards were stuck together, (a little nerdery here) it took an order of n operations to find any one item; where n is the number of items in my wallet.
This Everlane fold-over lets me have my cake and eat it too. It's beautiful, it's thin, the leather feels great (i'm no leather expert, but it seems like it's going to hold up a lot better than its predecessor), aaaand I don't have to fumble for my ID like a nervous teenager.
Here's what it's comfortably holding:
top: car/health insurance // id, debit card (for cheaper gas), credit card, clipper card (for getting around sf)
bottom: the wallet itself (it looks black in this photo, but it's burgundy) // yoga cash
What do you think? Do you use a wallet? I'll be honest. Before this came out, I was so desperate. I considered just holding my cards together with a rubber band (à la regina :)
P.S. I busted this beauty out when paying for lunch on Monday. My coworkers ended up passing it around the the table. :) A couple of them ordered one for themselves once we got back to the office. (I'm intrigued to see the gray one in person.)
P.P.S. Other Everlane reviews: sandals, box cut tee, cashmere hat.
