Franklin was a successful inventor, writer, publisher, diplomat, drafter/signer of our Declaration of Independence, abolitionist, entrepreneur, and networker. Another true Renaissance man and Mission Man.
Our Benjamin Collection is an intentional nod (and wink!) to good ole Ben, who would have felt right at home grabbing his namesake collection as his EDC (everyday carry for your Benjamins). In fact, social critic David Brook called Franklin our founding Yuppie. Intentionality was our emphasis, from the hand-selected, marbled, twice-tanned leather (both chrome and vegetable tanning) to the rich yet simplistic lines visible in each Benjamin leather good. We can imagine Mr. Franklin proudly carrying his collection on the streets of Philadelphia, Paris, or anywhere in the world his business or exploits might take him.
Where will your adventures take you with the Benjamin by your side?
A wallet is like a handshake. Life demands a good one. With our chrome/veg re-tanned bi-fold, rugged and durable in construction, eye-catchingly refined in detail is a given. Real estate is where we depart most from the traditional, adding to generous interior pockets on both sides a usefully diverse selection of vertical and horizontal sliding pockets for credit cards, membership cards, and the like. The most inventive piece of expanded capacity, however, is an insert pocket housing a separate, minimalist front pocket wallet that slips easily in and out. Or that open pocket can be used as a standalone compartment. Handsome dark grey fabric lines the bi-fold's bill section and the front pocket wallet's ID window. Together, befitting the possession you will hold closest day in and day out, they will burnish with age, forming to the contours of your person and personality over a lifetime.
