Welcome to the Speakeasy D’Avella Minimalist Wallet, featuring the stunning Premium Autumn Harvest leather color with a striking copper thread accent. In this review, we’ll explore the design, features, and overall quality of this wallet. With a plethora of customization options, it’s a wallet that caters to both style and functionality.
Speakeasy D’Avella Minimalist Wallet: Design and Customization
The Speakeasy D’Avella Minimalist Wallet offers a wide range of customization options. You can choose from ten different leather colors and twelve thread colors, allowing you to create a wallet that perfectly matches your style. Additionally, the choice of logo options, including full body, head, or skull-based designs, adds a unique touch to your wallet. While personalization options are abundant, please note that the color of the snap remains fixed. In our case, we went with the antique brass snap, which complements the autumn harvest leather beautifully.
The Speakeasy wallet boasts a clever and functional design. It starts with an external card slot for quick and easy access to your most-used card. The thumb push and thumb grab openings are a thoughtful addition, making card retrieval effortless. The snap closure reveals a space for cash, folded once, ideally suited for domestic and shorter currencies. Surprisingly, it can accommodate a substantial amount of cash, all while keeping it securely in place.
This section can expand along with the cards, thanks to its innovative design, which utilizes a single piece of leather wrapping around with a separate piece for the middle section. This not only reduces material usage but also enhances the wallet’s aesthetics. This wallet is similar to other designs like the Rustic Heirloom Leather, Sin City Leather and Alpha Leather wallets.
Size and Weight:
Measuring at 4 x 3 x 0.4 inches and weighing a mere 33 grams (1.2 ounces), the Speakeasy D’Avella Minimalist Wallet is incredibly slim and lightweight. It easily slips into your pocket without creating any noticeable bulk, making it an ideal choice for those who value minimalism.
Capacity and Durability:
The wallet is designed to hold up to six cards comfortably. During our testing, it accommodated five cards with ease. It can even adapt to taller currencies like the Tauruscamp Grain or BaseCamp wallets using Singaporean dollar without any issues. Crafted in the United States, this wallet is an all-leather marvel. It’s constructed using full-grain vegetable-tanned leather, with premium options featuring a waxy finish and a delightful pull-up effect. The burnishing on both sides is impeccably done, showcasing the craftsmanship that goes into its creation. The leather’s thickness is perfect for maintaining its slim profile, even when folded over. Considering the quality of leather and its USA-made construction, the wallet’s price is more than reasonable.
For right-handed individuals, the design of this wallet offers a distinct advantage. The combination of the thumb push and thumb grab, coupled with the snap closure, allows for swift, single-handed access to both cards and cash. The wallet’s flexibility means it can expand to accommodate more cards and cash, but it’s essential to exercise caution not to overstretch it, as this can cause cards to become loose. This characteristic is common in all-leather wallets, and it’s wise to carry the number of cards you intend to use regularly to maintain a secure fit. Some users have reported that metal cards can gradually loosen due to stretching, especially when surrounded by other cards or cash.
