I doubt I’ve ever been mistaken for a metrosexual, even when I lived in New York City, but I’ll grab onto any fashionable item that is also functional. When form and function come together, it’s a beautiful thing.
So I like the line of accessories from Malcolm Fontier, including this cool little Mojito micro wallet. The idea is this: when you go out for a night on the town, do you really need a wallet two inches thick that has your cards from Costco, the grocery store, and the gym? Take cash, ID, and a credit card and you’re good to go. You can fit up to six cards in this little wallet though, with an elastic strap holding them in. On the side is a pocket for your folded up cash, billed as “a money clip without the clip.”
It comes in four colors and it’s stylish, but it’s also really practical as well. I’ve used it around town a few times in the past month and managed one weekend trip with only this along. I’m off to Vegas for a conference next week and this is what will be going with me every time I leave the room. (Unfortunately, I’m not blessed with a roll of hundred-dollar bills to gamble with, sigh…) I think this thing gets a bit ungainly if there are more than two credit cards and an ID in it, but most times that’s plenty anyway.
The Mojito micro wallet retails for $20, though be advised the construction is tagged as “animal-friendly,” which means “not leather” (and not likely to every biodegrade either since it’s synthetic). Follow this link to see more photos and even a video of it in use. They also make a similar larger case to hold your iPhone. You can get their stuff online or take a look at their retail store locater. Go to the Malcolm Fontier site to see the whole line of striking cool but functional bags and accessories. Need an incentive to click over? Well, there are videos of naked people…
