New wallet

After previously discussing my wallet lust, I thought I’d share my impulse purchase last night at Target.

My beloved Timbuk2 money clip/cardholder has been slowly coming apart, so it needed replacing. Unfortunately, they don’t make them anymore. The new wallet, from Target’s house brand, lacks the Timbuk2’s modern looks and clear plastic ID window, but it does have a bottle opener built into the money clip, and a skull and crossbones. It is made out of leather, theoretically, and it is slightly longer than the old one to accommodate the clip’s snapping action. The clip is slimmer, closer to the body of the wallet. newwallet

I may miss the clear plastic ID window, since I do tend to use it often. Time will tell. Meanwhile, the new guy is still small and slim.
