"THE PARK SLOPER SENIOR"
NOTE: This is the SENIOR. The Park Sloper JUNIOR is the smaller, micro-sized version of this wallet that takes 2.5"x4" notebooks and includes a tiny Fisher Space Pen. See a size comparison and learn more here: http://onestarleathergoods.com/products/#/the-park-sloper-walletnotebook/
I had been wanting to combine a wallet and pocket notebook for some time, so when my cousin called me in 2012 and requested exactly that, I immediately got to work. My cousin is a singer/songwriter living in Brooklyn, NYC (www.johndelore.com). He gave the product its name as he figured it would be a hit in his neighborhood. A lot of time and effort has lead me to this design and I stand by its quality and utility. Often copied but never replicated, if you're looking for the original, you've come to the right place.
Two card slots hold at least 4+ credit cards each. Behind them is a large pocket for folded bills, receipts, etc. A partially open top facilitates access. You can also tuck bills or cards behind the notebook.
The narrow pocket between the card slots can be used for a house key, micro pen, micro pocket knife, fortune cookie papers, etc.
The Park Sloper Senior is at home in a bag, a purse or in the back pocket of your jeans. As long as you position the pen along the outside edge of the pocket, this wallet is comfortable even when sitting--if you look at the outside seam of your back pocket while you are sitting, it remains almost straight, so there is very little risk of bending or breaking pens.
This is available with a second set of pockets behind the notebook, for those who need a little more card storage space. More info: http://onestarleathergoods.com/products/#/the-park-sloper-walletnotebook/
Includes a Field Notes 3.5"x5.5" pocket notebook, and it will work with similarly sized notebooks from a wide variety of companies: Clairefontaine, Moleskine, Rhodia, Forest Choice, Word Notebooks, Rite in Rain, Doane Paper, Fabriano, Paper Stax, Scout Books, Furrow Books, Slim Note, Denik, Calepino-- you get the idea, there are a lot of options.
This will work well with a passport, but you may want to check out my Travel Wallet, sized specifically for that purpose: http://onestarleathergoods.com/products/#/travel-wallet
The pen sleeve will fit many pens up to about 11mm in diameter. The pen sleeve is designed to swallow the entire pen, including clip, so there is nothing to catch on pockets and such. The open window in the pen sleeve facilitates removal of the pen. Pen not included, you must provide your own.
15cm x 11.5cm closed, 15cm x 22cm open
Superior quality Hermann Oak natural vegetable tanned leather. It will age dramatically and patina beautifully. See the last photo for how this leather will age. This leather has no finish or wax applied, so it will age dramatically, picking up dirt and indigo dye from jeans and darkening with exposure to UV light.
You need to treat this leather with balm or oil to prevent cracking and deterioration and keep it looking its best. Our One Star Leather Balm happens to be the best product I've ever used on my leathers, https://www.etsy.com/listing/112643822/one-star-leather-balm. I recommend applying it in thin coats: Once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, and then as needed.
Our products are 100% handmade in our little garage workshop in California. No sewing machines, no assembly lines. Just top quality raw materials put together by hand.

"This is a thousand times better than my highest expectations! Such a beautiful, tough, and extraordinarily useful wallet. I can't imagine ever owing another kind. Thanks!!" -Vedis, Montreal
"This piece is just flat out practical, and will more than likely be the 'go to' on a daily basis. I carry a bag daily for work, and even when I'm not working; so dropping this wallet in my outside pocket...equipped with the recommended Karas Bolt pen is a no brainer for allowing me to have all my necessities organized, with easy access." -William, Tennessee
