When it comes to everyday carry and accessories materials leather is tough to beat in the dapperness, durability and style stakes but it isn’t a material that everyone gets right when it comes to producing wares. There are some, however, that are masters of their trade when it comes to crafting top class leather goods and, it’s fair to say, London based accessories brand Wingback definitely fall into this bracket.
Wingback are relative newcomers to the accessories scene having, like a lot of our favourite brands at Coolector HQ, emerged from a successful Kickstarter campaign and the quality of the leather goods that they now produce is second to none. For any man looking for some great leather accessories and everyday carry this Christmas, Wingback have got you covered with an embarrassment of riches on this front.
Well Made, Quality Goods
When it comes to leather goods, the calibre of the product is directly correlated with the quality of the leather used in its crafting and that’s why you know you’re onto a winner with Wingback because they use full grain leather that is sourced from their partner tannery in Tuscany, Italy.
To deliver the impeccable looking wares that you’ll see across their site, a vegetable tanning process is used to craft the different shades of leather and takes advantage of the tannic acids naturally found in barks, branches and leaves to create some genuinely stunning leather wallets, phone sleeves and card holders. Take a look at a few of our favourite pieces from Wingback below:
With the recently released iPhone 7 in need of some luxurious accessories to compliment it, you’ll find few better than the Wingback iPhone Sleeve which isn’t just wonderfully well crafted, it is supremely functional too and delivers an abundance of storage options on top of provided great protection for your iPhone. The Wingback iPhone Sleeve keeps your phone protected and lets you store your essential cards and notes under the understated wing pocket. There is a small opening at the bottom that lets you plug in headphones or listen to music via the speaker. Style and functionality combine to deliver a magnificent looking product.
Most men today only carry around a small number of cards – in our case here at Coolector HQ, only around three or four – so the need for big, cumbersome wallets is long gone and the majority of men are now opting for understated, stylish and functional affairs like these excellent Wingback Card Holders. Crafted from their trademark Italian leather, you’ll feel a tangible quality to these card holders and they are available in a range of colours to match your own personal style tastes. Versatile and magnificently crafted, the Wingback Card Holder is a real favourite of ours at The Coolector.
If you’re planning on doing a spot of travelling this winter and need an accessory that’s not going to let you down, the Travel Wallet from Wingback would be our pick. Stylish with sufficient space for not just your passport but also plenty of your cards and cash, this aesthetically superior product which, like all of the wares from Wingback can be customised with your initials or other lettering, has got all the hallmarks of being a staple of your accessories line up for years to come. A fine example of the craftsmanship of this first rate, London based brand.
