We Plan to be back in Stock by Tuesday 2/9!
No need for over complication.
Hand stitched with a 25lb breaking strength thread, Phil's Wallet uses just two strips of recycled leather & hearty sewing to maximize durability.
Thinner stuffed than most empty.
Just 3"x4" and under 1/8" thick. Two external card pockets capable of 10+ cards and a center cash wedge for up to 20 American dollar bills.
Made to be abused.
No Special Care Needed.
My wallet has been through bicycle crashes, accidental hot tub soaks, and tossed out of a moving vehicle. It keeps coming back stronger!
The Simple Wallet
This isn't a revolutionary new design that will change the way people carry money, my wallets are as simple as possible so that I make the
most of the few materials I can locally recycle.
Phil's Wallets will always be 100% hand
made in America using 100% recycled leathers.
I strive not just for simplicity in design,
but in the spirit of every aspect of my business.
That's why we run everything out of our home
workspace, from sewing of the wallets to the designing of the website and packaging.
Stitching is Herculean. Craftsmanship is pragmatic. It's even picking up some nice grey dye from my jeans. Kicks more ass than any wallet has the right to.

The quality is excellent and it is slim enough to be almost unnoticeable in my pocket and prevents me stuffing it with receipts and business cards, but is the perfect size for me to carry walking around cash in.
Received my wallet yesterday and took it out of my pocket today. Most comfortable wallet I've ever had in my pocket, and it can hold everything I need from my trifold that was about 4 times its size.
As a bartender, I like to be able to fit fat wads of cash in my wallet (even if they are mostly singles.) Amazingly, this lil guy does the job happily.
Compact, well-made with good strong stitches and fits everything I need. It also fits nicely in my front pocket where it protects me from backaches and my smartphone from getting scratched.
It's thinner than my empty old wallet, even loaded up with 4 plastic cards on each side pocket and a small wad of bills in the middle. I'm probably going to order a few to give as xmas presents!

I've been getting a bunch of compliments on my wallet from people recently, I didn't know that was a thing that people commented others on, but there you go!
I put about fifteen bills and four or five cards and it's thinner than my old wallet when it was empty! Color scheme's a huge plus and quality is tops.
The difference in comfort after carrying a big tri-fold wallet for a long time is really something. The look of the wallet is great and the leather looks even better after being a bit worn.
Was worried that it wouldn't hold lots of bills, but it did NOT fail me, even stuffed with more bills than I'd expected to hold at any given time. Love the design, love the simplicity.
Unless you're absolutely dying to keep all of your old receipts on you at all times, get this. I hardly even notice I have it on me when I head out.
Had mine for about 3 months now. Only problem is with dark denim the dye transfers over a bit. Built quality is great, but I might dye the entire thing black since it looks odd.
Frequently Asked Questions
"We get that all of the time."
"So how do I choose my wallet color?"
I recycle all of the leather by hand. I come across such a variety of colors that I can't consistently offer a choice of color. I do however only use relatively neutral earth tone color schemes in my wallets.If you absolutely despise your color you can send it back for a different color, no questions asked. Just email me first.
While my wallet is designed for U.S. bills I have many international customers who use my wallets.
Alternative sized bills can be folded in 3 and still tucked away within the wallet.
"How long will shipping take?"
Wallets typically leave my shop a day or two after purchase and from then it can take up to 7
business days priority and up to 2 weeks economy. International times vary.
"So what the heck is recycled leather?"
We personally hand recycle all of the leather for our products. Our mission is to give
new life to materials that would have otherwise gone unused.
Leather Nerds Beware:
This is not a full grain leather wallet. My wallets have a very unique feel due to the materials I am able to recycle. In addition to the many environmental benefits of using materials that would have gone to waste, many actually
prefer the feel of my wallets and I find I can make them even thinner and more durable than conventional leathers.
"Is there any guarantee?"
All wallets are backed by a five year guarantee protecting any defects that may have occurred as a result of an
error on our end. This includes but is not limited to thread breakage, wallet un-stitching, and inferior materials.
This does not cover any damage that is caused by extreme usage beyond anything you should be subjecting a wallet to. [But send a message anyways, we are usually pretty cool about these so long as the system is not being abused.]
Just send back the wallet at your own expense with an explanation note and we will replace it, no hassles.
"Will I receive an email confirmation?"
You should receive a confirmation right away. You will receive another email with your
tracking when your order ships. This could take us up to 3 business days.
