A Boy’s Best Friend: Bottega Venetta Continental Wallets
Bottega Veneta wallets are sensible and easy on the eyes.
Bottega Veneta is a beautiful Italian fashion house like no other. Its woven calfskin leather, referred as intrecciato, is the house’s identity in the world of leather goods. Big intrecciato bags are always a treat, and the texture is disarmingly good. But, sometimes you don’t want to lug around such big pieces all the time.
That’s why small leather goods are always a treat to have. SLGs, like Bottega Veneta’s Continental Wallets, are so easy to lug around on a daily basis because they sit nicely inside whatever bag you’ve decided to carry for any particular day. And if you are a fan of the intricate texture BV is known for in their leather goods, you won’t miss it so much in a wallet form, because this way you can use it everyday.
The continental wallet has a generous number of slots to hold your cards including two slip pockets. It also has two main bill pockets, one thicker and the other thinner, so you can insert any odds and ends that you may be carrying around with you. It’s a great wallet to hold. I especially like the fact that it doesn’t have a zipper inside – something I’ve quite learned I particularly wish weren’t there sometimes – making it a much simpler wallet to carry. (Though, there are variations of this wallet that does have zippers, if you like them).
So if you’re looking for a luxury wallet, don’t forget to include Bottega Veneta in your choices.
