When was the last time you paid cash for something? Can you remember? As quick taps and banking apps increasingly take over our wallets, everything from your Uber to your Deliveroo can be ordered, paid for, and delivered to your doorstep from your phone or card. Coins and notes, it would appear, have had their day.
With this in mind, Gentleman’s Journal have done away with the classic wallet, and downsized to a neat, chic cardholder. Perfect for storing your credit, business or Oyster cards, along with a token note or two, these are the best accessories for a modern man’s money — and they won’t ruin the lines of your jacket, either…
