my boyfriend's birthday is coming up, and this year i decided to get him a Comme des Garcons wallet. surprisingly, this is somewhat of a challenging purchase. i didn't want to get him something plain and boring like your typical brown leather billfold (though there are plenty of attractive options from Mulberry and others). it's challenging because, for those of you familiar with CdG wallets, their signature design is the zip-around style. so when i was looking online, i came across this cobalt blue version from CdG's new 'Luxury Group' collection.
the good: CdG wallets are designed with a relatively unisex vibe and the quality is *superb* (i've been using my clover embossed red CdG for 3+ years now and it still looks brand new)
the tricky: are there gender connotations to a zip wallet vs a traditional billfold style? is there something inherently 'feminine' about a zipper detail on a men's wallet? i know the zip wallet for guys is a design that's been around since the 1970s. but i feel like most guys have a billfold style...
let me know what you think! (any guys reading this, please weigh in as well!)
edit: thanks everyone for your lively opinions! i decided to get this *other* CdG wallet instead. glossy black leather with a cool leather lining. i think it's the best of both worlds :)
