You know the drill. Man’s wallet falls apart but he refuses to get a new one. The new ones are too expensive, he says. Or they are much too fancy, colleagues will laugh, he says. The new ones can’t hold much either, not like his 10-year-old leather block that’s now bulging at the seams and fraying at the sides, he says, while staring at it ever so lovingly as he clutches it ever so tighter.
So what do you do? You can either pry it from his hands as he lays asleep and change his wallet for him, or show him this post, which should move even the most stubborn of men. From Louis Vuitton’s S/S16 collection, the new Epi Stripes collection is exactly as its name describes, a selection of Epi leather wallets that come emblazoned with red and white stripes along with letters L & V.
Choose from amongst the Multiple Wallet (5 credit card slots, 2 compartments for notes and bills and 2 side slots for other receipts), the Pocket Organiser (3 credit card slots, 5 interior pockets and 1 external pocket) and the Zippy Organiser (12 credit card slots, a zippered coin compartment, two compartments for papers and passport and 1 flat bill compartment), big enough for even the most fussy of men.
Priced at SGD890, SGD570 and SGD1570 respectively, there’s also a Brazza Wallet, your standard long wallet with card slots on one side and a zipped compartment on the other, which means you have up to at least 4 different options to please him. And if it doesn’t work and he insists on keeping his old leather block, at least you’ll know you tried, while you shop at Louis Vuitton for yourself instead. Right?
