The 1970s was a decade of inspiration for many things—disco music, bell bottoms and unapologetically bold polyester neckties. Though many of these menswear relics have found their way to thrift shops, Kris has given them life beyond the bin, as a wallet. Not just any wallet, but one that tells the story of a person who suited up for the office everyday, who attended his daughter’s ballet recital or was just plain boss. Whatever the story may be, there’s a history and a soul to each and every wallet that adds a new chapter in its reincarnation. These statement-making carriers are painstakingly made by hand—ironed, stripped, cut, reinforced, sewn and ironed some more. And they’re durable as all getout. After all, polyester has serious staying power. Probably through the next ‘70s.
