After being failed by the rubber-band-from-a-broccoli-stem method, a Brooklyn designer decided it was time for a new take on slim wallets. Some quick sewing lessons from a friend led to the creation of the TGT Wallet, a handsome way to keep your valuables secure without the bulk that regular wallets impose on your butt pocket.
TGT's elastic straps stretch to fit your credit cards, business cards, and train passes, while a leather pouch — fashioned with scraps from a local furniture store — keeps your dollar bills neatly in place.
What started as a little email blast to friends grew into a successful Kickstarter campaign and has finally evolved into a full-blown business. It's time to respect the silhouette of your butt and avoid the George Costanza explosion.
