Breaking the Fold

Lei ChicBell bottom pants. Psychedelic apron tops. Your guy’s wallet shoved in his pants pocket.

Answer: Things that make a person look hippy.

You've been telling him for months that his bulky billfold makes him look pear shaped. But recently, even he’s noticed the suspiciously bi-fold-shaped spot wearing through his favorite jeans.

Buck his bad habit with a change you'll both agree on - a slim new bill holder by Handsome Young Son (HYS).

Lei Chic Ireland native and current Maui resident Naoise Magee began his line earlier this year out of leather he picked up while hiking through Peru. A single hand-cut piece is folded, origami-inspired style, into a sleek, supple, and completely seamless wallet with room for dollars and unique angled slots for IDs and credit cards.

The vegetable-dyed leather is available in brown, a darker tobacco, midnight blue, or mustard yellow and retails for about 70 dollars.

So it'll take less than a hundred to make him look like a million.

Now that’s money.

HYS wallets are available at I Am shop , 1221 Kapiolani Blvd. or on HYS's website.
