In these sucky economic times, you need a wallet that can shrink in profile along with your dough, lest it soon resemble an accessory version of Anna Nicole Smith: sloppily dropping the few dollars you have left, then applying for permanent residency in the Bahamas. Keep your money tight, with Mighty Wallets
From a painter-turned- jeweler-turned-designer, MWs are made from a single sheet of Tyvek, a recyclable microfiber used to weatherproof houses, consisting of "thousands of super fine plastic fibers spun in random interlocking patterns" -- giving it a light, strong design that stretches or retracts to snugly fit either a buttload of Benjamins, or a single, lonely Susan B. The ultra-thin wallet includes six pockets: two interior (cash, receipts), two exterior (business cards, change), and two sly inward-facing ones for the stuff you really don't want flitting away (c-cards, c-domes, Second Life password). Stylewise, MWs use highly detailed photos to depict 11 designs, from a graffiti-tagged collage, to an old leather wallet given to the designer by his grandfather, to an airmail envelope, to a dot matrix listing the first 3,000 digits of Pi (but you already knew that)
To literally escape financial ruin, they've also got indestructible Tyvek baggage tags in designs like "Passport", "Airmail", "Graffiti", and "Fragile", correctly identifying both its owner's remaining belongings and current state of mind.
