Monocle Tokyo

monocletokyo.jpg

While we wish for a Monocle Shop to finally hit California (C'mon, what's the holdup, Tyler?), we jealously watch as Tokyo gets a new Monocle shop, a complement to their already existing Tokyo Cafe. Opening this month, the shop is located in the Tomigaya district, southwest from Yoyogi Park. Inside you'll find the latest Monocle Shop goods, collaborations, and a selection of Monocle issues both past and present.

MAKR Open Billfold Wallet

makrbillfold.jpg

As much as we love the slim profile of a card case, we wouldn't mind going back to a billfold if this wallet from MAKR was in our pockets. You can't go wrong with either of the leather choices and you've got Horween Latigo or Wickett and Craig English Bridle leather to choose from. You've got one cash pocket that is large enough for currency of all types and sizes and six card slots. The wallet is machine sewn and handsewn with rolled and painted edges.

$185, MAKR

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
