When your money has needed holding.
When your suits have needed casing.
Yes, it’s leather. Speaking of...
Check out Kenton Sorenson, a smart line of leather things out of the upper Midwest, available online now.
So this guy Sorenson: he’s a retired classically trained barber from Minnesota turned Nordic cowhide god. About 25 years ago, he decided to fashion himself a leather case for his various tools. It ended up being a pretty damn great case, so he dove into the cutthroat world of leathering. And what leathering. Think straps instead of zippers, and nickel plating instead of brass. Long story short: you’re about to get a lot of compliments on your new briefcase, iPad sleeve or weekend bag.
You’ll use this stuff to, well, carry other stuff. If you’ve got a newly minted Kindle Fire, there’s a leather case just for it. Your passport: of course. Your iPhone now has its own special wallet. All of it comes in sort of a pale brown color that’ll age into a nice, ancient-looking caramel and just get better as the years go by.
Which is pretty much your plan, too.
