I never thought I would see this, but here’s a stainless steel wallet for men. Yes, you read that right. It’s made of stainless steel, but it’s extremely thin and flexible and feels like silk. It comes packaged in a signature Stewart/Stand box. For optimal maintenance of this product, you are advised to not use more than one card in each slot or pack beyond capacity, and clean the wallet with a jewelry polishing cloth. uncommongoods.com.
