If you’ve been bowled over by the retro prints Prada has been using loads of since a couple of seasons ago, you’ll find some sort of semblance of it in the Jetsam Uncle Larry series, a collection of wallets made up of reconstructed vintage neckties and wool suiting.
Each piece as unique as the next, they all come with a long billfold slot for cash as well as a pair of card slots, great for days when you need to carry pretty little while you’re out and about.
Besides the ones from the Uncle Larry series that I adore, I’m also eyeing these from the Jetsam Spiffy Lumberjack collection, also made from vintage ties.
All made in San Diego by American firm Prix-Prix, whose ethos is all about sustainable design, these eco-friendly wallets will be available at Cumulus at SGD69 a pop in the coming week. The perfect no-brainer gift to yourself after a bad day at work, these will make great X’mas gifts as well.
