Hold all your notes and cards
You're not still keeping your cash in a leather wallet, are you? How incredibly naff! That's the 21st century equivalent of dressing your fivers in flares and putting gold medallions on your credit cards. And you wouldn't want that, would you?
No, what you want is a Star Trek Issue 1 Tyvek Wallet
. And we should know, because as self-appointed arbiters of cool we know a thing or two about how best to hold one’s folding - and that thing you've got stuffed down the back of your trousers most definitely ain't it.
As you can see, this cool and quirky wallet resembles a bit of folded paper. But not just any old paper; the artwork is taken from Issue 1 of the Star Trek comic series
. Known to die hard Trekkies as the “Key Collection”, these classic images originally appeared between 1967 and 1978. Needless to say, pulling this Tyvek out of your pocket will immediately mark you out as an intergalactic man/woman of mystery: looking high tech and incredibly retro
at the same time.
Plenty of nooks and crannies to put your cash and cards in along with whatever other items you put in your wallet

But Tyvek wallets aren't just about highly original looks. Tyvek® is actually the brand name of a unique material that's like a cross between paper, film and fabric. Lightweight yet amazingly strong
, this miraculous stuff is breathable (so your beloved banknotes won't get all hot and bothered), yet it is water/chemical/tear/abrasion resistant. This means, unlike leather, a Tyvek Wallet won't start falling to bits after a bit of rough and tumble.
Bi-fold for notes and credit cards, the Tyvek Wallet
is ideal for storing scannable ID cards (such as Oyster etc) as the material is so thin you won't need to remove them. Best of all, this supremely innovative wallet is unlike anything else on the market. And that's what matters because Confucius* say: "Empty wallet that looks good is better than full one that looks rubbish."
