There are two types of men in this world, those that put their bills directly into their wallet and those that fold their bills first. This men’s wallet was designed for the gentlemen who prefer to fold first and organize a bit more. By creating two separate sides to the wallet you can fold your cash on one side and keep receipts tucked in on the other, while your cards are safe and secure in front.

As with all of my leather wallet designs I chose to favor the durability of Full-Grain Vegetable-Tanned Leather paired with Solid Brass hardware, to create a wallet that is thin and will last for a lifetime of heavy use. It will comfortably disappear into your front or back pocket without the bulk.
*Fits most currencies, see 'Size' section below for details

- The personalization will be surrounded by a diamond mark on each end as shown in the photos unless you use your own symbols at the ends in which case I will use my discretion

-The best of the best etsy shops, full interview here:
This wallet will easily fit 4 -6 cards ( a few more if you allow the leather to stretch), receipts notes and bills.
The wallet measures approximately 4.25 x 3.33 inches (107mm x 84mm) when folded and is about 3/16 inch (4.7mm) at its thickest point.
The wallet will fit larger Euro bills and British bills when folded twice.
** Design Update: I recently updated the hardware used to attach the chain to the wallet. Instead of the grommet shown in the photos, I now use a very small triangular D-ring that is directly attached to the rivet. Photos coming soon!
OPTION A - Is a lighter weight steel with nickel plating. It's about 18 inches long and the chain width is 3/16" wide.
OPTION B - A nice heavy weight chain made of stainless steel with a stainless steel clip. Measures 18 inches long and a chain width of 7/16" wide.
OPTION C - A sturdy Full Grain Leather strap is cut to 7/16" width and riveted to a stainless steel clip on one end and a stainless steel split ring on the other. The leather color will match your wallet unless specified in the comment section at checkout. Measures about 18.5" long.
OPTION D - This leather chain strap ends in a snapping belt loop meant to go over belts up to 1.75" wide. Made from one piece of solid full-grain leather, the other end attaches you your wallet via a stainless steel split ring. Leather color will match your wallet unless specified in the comment section at checkout. Measures 19" long from end to end, 7/16" width on strap section, and 7/8" width on snap section.
OPTION E - Want to attach your own chain? Choose this option and we will install a solid brass nickel plated grommet with stainless steel split ring so you can use your own chain. The grommet will be installed in the same location as the photos and placement cannot be customized.

THE CREATION OF YOUR WALLET
Now, there aren't too many people makin' wallets with as much care as I do, so I thought I would share the process with y'all:
♦Every morning Mr. Lentz wakes up and brews a pot of Cowboy Coffee, you know - the grainy type with a bit of grind still left in the cup. Sippin' on this, he enters his workshop and pulls out a large 'side' of raw, full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather. Usually a roll of about 24 square feet, of leather smellin' goodness. From this roll he will plan out the day's cuts, which pieces will be best used for wallets, and where the most interesting natural markings lay. Mr. Lentz will then start the cutting and punching process, shaping the wallet down to the millimeter using a series of sharp knives and precision cutting tools.
♦From there, it will be carried over to the Mr. Lentz logo branding machine, a beast of a tool that is capable of over a thousand degrees of heat. The brand is set in place and the logo is impressed on the surface...a sweet smell of singed leather fills the air with a puff of steam. Next, the wallet is carried over to the sequential number machine, where Mr. Lentz first sprays on a bit of water into place before adjusting the machine and pulling down on the lever to set the numbers deep into the leather. This number signifies the order in which the wallet or other leather good was made in the history of Mr. Lentz Leather Goods. It is sequential right from the start of Mr. Lentz's early work, and he has a book to account for every item and number marked.
♦If you chose to personalize your wallet, then Mr. Lentz will heat up another branding tool, as well capable of over 1,000 degrees. The letters are hand placed into the tool in the old-fashioned typesetter's way, then the wallet is again sprayed with a mist of water. Mr. Lentz will hold the branding tool above the wallet, carefully aligning the initials in place, then with a quick and brisk movement, the numbers are pressed and held into place as the tool brands the leather.
♦The wallet is then set out to dry in the natural heat and wind of the Southwest's desert air for several hours. Once fully dry, the wallet is brought over to be oiled and conditioned. Mr. Lentz is proud to say that he makes his own leather conditioner from all-natural materials as well. It is the same leather conditioner that he ships free with every wallet as a can of Spiff N' Shine (also hand-filled! ) The wallet is set on a table and rubbed down from side to side with a few layers of an oil-wax mixture. This process is then repeated on the backside and over again until the wallet has fully absorbed just the right amount as to be soft and pliable.
♦Once oiled, every wallet is hand-buffed with a soft cloth before each rivet is placed into the leather, one by one. The rivets are assembled together with several hundred pounds of force, creating a super-durable and tight fit... one that will last a long long time. The wallet is then hand hammered into shape, thus keeping its tightly made corners and folds.
♦Each wallet is then fit with a paper sleeve made from recycled materials, and attached with a free tin of Mr. Lentz Spiff N' Shine. Then, finally - after a day or so of work - it is off to the postal service to make its way to you and your pocket. It will last you a long long time.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed hearing about all of the work that went into this purely handcrafted piece of leather goodness!

It's just a bit smaller than I pictured it in my mind's eye, even with the photos I viewed beforehand, so I took a picture with a quarter. Problem solved. And that's it. That's my only gripe. It's a single piece of leather, no stitching, so it's gonna be around for the long haul. No extra pockets, no impossible to reach corners. Simple and effective. Once we get past the breaking in and a patina starts coming through, she's gonna be a looker.
Perfect. Looked at a bunch of different options on Etsy for a new wallet, and I'm so happy I picked this one. I can fit all the cash I need plus as of now 6 cards or so. Color is awesome and it's unbelievably soft. Incredible minimalist design, I know it will last and I can't wait to see it age. Mr. Lentz, you have earned yourself a lifelong customer! I'll certainly be coming back for more.
My husband loves his new wallet and keychain! Stamped them with our wedding date-only got married the beginning of this year. Got them for him for his birthday and he has used them everyday since. He also received compliments on them all the time! Hadn’t found a real leather wallet that he liked in years that didn’t fall apart within a month. He has been using the wallet for almost 2 months now and it is only just starting to break in. Definitely will order one again when he needs a new one, but hopefully not for a few years! Thanks Mr Lentz!!
I ordered this wallet for my teenage sone for Christmas, not wanting to get him an "old man" looking wallet. HE LOVED IT! It's youthful, trendy, and the perfect size. It's even starting to look better as it ages! It arrived on time. I would totally order again. Thank you so much! Amy
