We’ll admit, nothing beats leather when it comes to materials for good-looking wallets. If you’d like to try something different for a change, though, how about this Diamond Plate Stainless Steel Wallet from Stewart/Stand?
Don’t worry, you won’t be spending the day with a thick steel plates on your back pocket. That just sounds uncomfortable. Instead, it’s a wallet constructed from less-inconvenient stainless steel fabric – the same material they use for making anti-radiation clothes. For those concerned about their environmental footprints, the wallet uses 85 percent post-consumer recycled stainless steel, so keep that in mind the next time you feel like scoffing at someone’s natural leather wallet.
While Stewart/Stand makes many billfold designs using the same stainless steel fabric, we’re particularly fond of the Diamond Plate Stainless Steel Wallet for its familiar texture, which ensures no one will mistake your wallet’s construction for anything other than stainless steel. Like the rest of the outfit’s wallets, it comes with built-in RFID blocking to protect you from credit card and ID theft, along with a ballistic nylon spine so the wallet is able to properly fold. Dimensions are 4.4 x 3.4 x 0.2 inches, with a large bill compartment, six credit card slots in a crossing design, and two stash pockets. And, yes, you can clean it with jewelry polishing cloth like an actual metal object.
Available directly from Stewart/Stand, the Diamond Plate Stainless Steel Wallet is priced at $72.
