It has been more than a year since we last reviewed a wallet from Mr. Lentz. We were genuinely surprised and absolutely delighted when Mr. Lentz contacted us and asked if we were interested to take a look at a couple of his products and let him know what we think about them. We of course jumped at the chance as we really loved the one that we reviewed last year. This is the first of the two reviews and this one is on the Mr. Lentz Minimal Traditional Leather Wallet.
First of all, if you loved the Mr. Lentz Minimalist Leather Wallet that we reviewed previously, you will most likely love this as well. This has all the features that we loved about the minimalist wallet. This includes the high quality full-grain vegetable-tanned leather held together with solid brass rivets that gives the wallet that rugged but elegant look which Mr. Lentz refers to as Cowboy Quality.
Take care of the leather properly by giving it a rub and buff every few months with the included tin of Spiff N’ Shine, Mr. Lentz’s special leather conditioner made from all-natural ingredients, and the wallet will last a lifetime. The leather may feel a little stiff when brand new but over time, it will get more supple with use. Don’t just take our word on the durability of the wallet. The Mr. Lentz Minimal Traditional Leather Wallet comes with a 100 year warranty against defects.
The other special feature with all wallets from Mr. Lentz is that each wallet is handmade by order by Mr. Lentz himself in his workshop. No mass production used here. To add to its uniqueness, each wallet has a unique sequentially stamped number. If you like, you can further customize the wallet by stamping or branding your name or initials (up to 10 characters) on the wallet.
While the Mr. Lentz Minimal Traditional Leather Wallet is very similar to the slim minimalist wallet, there is one big difference. The Mr. Lentz Minimal Traditional Leather Wallet is slightly thicker because it has two additional slots in addition to the two card slots, one on each side of the wallet flap. The card slots themselves will each hold 2 to 3 card each and maybe one more once you have worn in the wallet a bit.
The additional slots are slightly wider than the card slots. You can use them for storing more cards or even other items like receipts. The extra slots not only provides you with more storage space but also more compartments to organize your wallet properly.
We would recommend the Mr. Lentz Minimal Traditional Leather Wallet over the previous slim wallet design for those who prefer more card storage space or just simply a more organized wallet. There is a little sacrifice in wallet thickness of course but the wallet will still easily slip into a front pocket or into your shirt pocket. If you prefer the slimmer version, it is still available for sale.
