I have never really had to think about wallets much in my life until I retired. I basically used my credential case as my wallet for most of my adult life, and when traveling, I have used one of the cheapo $5 bifold faux leather wallets that last about as long as a vacation does before falling apart (Visiting family in Mexico made it necessary to leave the creds behind). As for money, I got in the habit of a money clip as that is what my dad used and taught me.
These last few years since retiring has been a struggle with my “wallet strategy”. I’ve already torn through a good number of cheapos. I have not found anything that I was happy with until I found Dango. I’m not going to lie, they are a little pricey, but anything I looked at that was quality and “smart” was going to cost some bucks.
I settled on the Dango D01 Dapper Pen Wallet and got the multi-tool with it. This thing is f’n amazing! Quality build and holds a lot more that you would think without too much bulk. Mine is even one of the biggest in their collection and it is surprisingly compact for everything it does. The pen is really nice and uses non-proprietary “space pen” cartridges (available from different companies) that write upside down etc. I have grown accustomed to splurging on my family, but going really basic for me. Generic tennis shoes, Walmart brand clothes, etc. Fortunately my wife sees the value and importance of guns, and this is the one occasional expense I have indulged in over the years. I felt guilty about throwing down real money for a “luxury” item like a wallet.
When it arrived and I put it all together, I hesitantly showed the wifey, hoping for the best. No furrowed brow, no frowny face, just casual inspection. She casually looked it over, flipped it around a few times and said, “This is nice. You finally decided to stop wasting money and got yourself a real wallet for a change!” I’m a lucky man, and now I have a nice wallet too! What more can a man ask for?
