A Wallet for the Rest of Us: Jimi
Item: Jimi Wallet
Where to Buy: thejimi.com
Review: "The wallet for people who hate wallets."
The Jimi wallet's slogan describes me exactly. Wallets always seem to be needlessly large and awkward, a place to stuff sundry receipts and coins. I currently keep my cards and money in a small change purse to avoid just such an outcome.
But hopefully not for long. I do have a birthday coming up, and this is what I want: a Jimi wallet.
I first came across the Jimi wallet in the gift shop of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and immediately coveted it. The hard plastic wallet is translucent but brightly colored-- a cross between hipster chic and avant garde.
What's more, it's water resistant and can even clip to a keychain or lanyard.
The only problem with the Jimi wallet? Which color to request.
I'm leaning toward pink. Or sea glass green.
