Rustic Manhattan - part III

Rustic Hand-Stitched and Waxed Vegetable-Dyed Credit Card Sleeve (LEO Design)

Let's end our tour of "Rustic Manhattan" with this streamlined beauty—perfect for a Saturday night out in jeans. Two side pockets sandwich a central slot, giving you plenty of room for a license, credit card or two and, maybe, a couple of Twenties. You'll have everything you need for a fun night out and, yet, it's not so bulky in your front pocket. It is hand-stitched (and edge waxed) of vegetable-dyed leather from Chicago, although it was crafted in NYC. The orange-ish color will darken—turn browner—and develop a soft lustre with use and handling. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
