The smartphone still has a long way to go before it can entirely replace the wallet, so in the mean time, it’s a safe place to splurge for a style upgrade. The new Hard Graft Inbound Passport Wallet is a continuation of the British brand’s mastery with leather and wool. This travel-minded pocket folder carries cash, coins and cards in a compact case that ties with a central drawstring. It’s not big or bulky, nor is it an eyesore– it carries the basics on your travels so all you need in your pockets is this and your mobile device.
Like the other Hard Graft gear, the Hard Graft Inbound Passport Wallet is made of vegetable-tanned Italian leather and fine gray wool. The outer later of the wallet is a natural “heritage” color, while the inside is a smoky black. The business end of the wallet, where cards and cash are stored, is lined with the aforementioned wool. The whole thing folds neatly and ties with drawstrings for a safe, snug fit of all your important bits.
The Hard Graft Inbound Passport Wallet is available for U.S. buyers for $199. It might seem high for a wallet, but you’re buying a piece that’s built to last. The Hard Graft wallet in my pocket is a little over two years old now, and it doesn’t show wear, only character.
