In their quest to cover the full range of wallet needs, the relentlessly-evolving Bellroy has released a new model that's the opposite of the carry-all Travel Wallet: The Card Sleeve Wallet.
Minimalist and ultra-slim, the Card Sleeve does away with the bi-fold form factor and adopts the company's "Nude Approach," where the idea is "better outcomes with fewer materials. There are no linings, no zips, in fact, there's almost nothing but vegetable tanned leather and thread." And, of course, design: A pull-tab prevents wallet-mining when it's time to produce a business card, and there are quick-stash slits front and back for the plastic you use most.
"We've been testing and refining this for several months now, and have fallen in love with the updates," writes Bellroy's Lincoln Eather. "And we think we've nailed it."
The Card Sleeve comes in both flat leather, for those who prefer an even-wearing black, and pull-up leather in cocoa or blue, which will more quickly develop patina and character marks.
