My husband loses everything. He’s also very difficult in taste, very traditional and conservative, and after he lost his wallet again I took the opportunity to get him to try something different.
We started out by thinking about what he needs to carry in his wallet: a bunch of credit/business cards, some cash and his ID. He also needs a wallet to be thin since it has the strange habit of collecting useless receipts – tons of them – and if he had a wallet that is bulky to begin with I could only imagine how it would end up!
At first, he was looking at the LIRA – Men’s Italian Leather Wallet with Privacy ID Flap, which he really liked because of its clear view window for the ID.
Then I showed him another wallet from Dionigi, the QUATTRINI – Men’s Nylon and Leather Wallet. I pointed out how it is slightly smaller than the LIRA, is slim to begin with, and has a good number of card slots. This wallet really has everything my husband needs, plus it’s a little more modern and younger looking which I like!
He was up for trying it … I couldn’t believe it! I actually let the excitement carry me away a little since I then tried to convince him to get it in blue. I should have known that such a suggestion would not going anywhere! Too bad because I really think the blue one is cute, especially for the sporty, always-in-jeans type of guy.
Well, my husband usually never likes clothes or accessories that are designed in a way that is different from how you would commonly expect them to be. He had always owned a traditional-style black leather wallet before. This new design was already a huge step forward for him!
He has been using it for a few months now and he is happy with it. We recently found out the best feature of all: no more tracking down lost wallets at the movie theatre or restaurants, not to mention digging through our couch and in our cars — because the textured nylon makes this wallet less likely to slip out from my husband’s back pocket. It’s like the wallet is slip-proof!!!
Of course I’m not saying that the QUATTRINI (or its brother SPICCIOLI – Nylon and Leather Wallet with Coin Pocket) is a loss-proof wallet or that it won’t ever slip out – especially if you are dealing with a man like my husband! – but I would definitely recommend it to all you men who carry your wallet in the back pocket of your pants!
