The Frank Clegg X IG Ultra Slim Card Case

Give the pockets of trousers and suit jackets a rest , and stop making yourself a target for pick pockets on the subway . If you’ve been carrying around that huge billfold for so long that your physician mistakes it for  tumor your relief is here.

Famed leather maker Frank Clegg of Frank Clegg Leatherworks and Grant Harris of Image Granted, LLC have collaborated and created The Frank Clegg X IG Ultra Slim Card Case . Here are a few words from Mr. Grant Harris himself describing the attributes of the product .

“If you’re anything like me then you don’t like a bunch of junk in your pockets reminiscent of Costanza messing up the line of your outfit so Frank and I worked together to make something for the minimalist, or at least those trying to be.”

“The case is completely unlined using Frank’s storied vegetable tanned leather.  Even Frank hasn’t made something this slim in all his years of work.  There are two outside pockets and one center pocket.  It features our logos discreetly printed under one side and the customer can request his or her initials to be printed on the other.  We aimed to make something simple, affordable, and useful.  I use mine everyday.” - Grant Harris, MBA Image Granted,LLC
This card case is now available for sale on Frank Clegg Leatherworks .

The last three weeks, I’ve been working with Nike around the buildup to 8.12, a day they appropriately chose for the world to celebrate sport and make the most active day in Nike+ history. They’ve run a campaign the last few weeks called Find Your Greatness, which opens the idea that greatness is reachable, available to everyone. It inspired me to find a way to take part on 8.12, and in my own way, to find greatness.

FRIDAY FIND | Travel has been a lot on my mind for the past couple weeks. Maybe it’s just wanderlust and spring air—-or maybe it’s the fact that I will be traveling across Europe this July and August. Well whatever the cause, I can’t help thinking about luggage. Because for any type of travel, a good piece or two of luggage is a necessity. But why the abundance of big, chunky, plastic looking tombs-on-wheels? Do the designers and manufacturers not realize that a piece of luggage is supposed to compliment and complete your wardrobe, not the other way around? What happened to style, grace, and sophistication when it comes to modern luggage? To answer my own question, I have no idea. But that doesn’t mean we have to conform to the accepted and buy what’s readily available in any department store or even Wal-Mart. And that’s why I’m so happy to introduce to you Frank Clegg Leatherworks, skillfully hand-crafted in Massachusetts since 1970. I especially would like to introduce Frank Clegg’s Signature Travel Duffle. Available in seven different leather colors (and carryon size!), this duffle is truly a work of art. This is not your regular duffle. Nor is it your standard, piece of junk luggage. This is your accessory, your focal point, or your bag to let everyone know just how vogue you really are. I don’t know about you, but I see myself in Florence with an oversize blue striped chiffon top, off-white linen pants (rolled up a little, of course), a nude pump, and my tan leather duffle hanging off an arm. Who knows—-I might just have my hair down and a pair of Audrey Hepburn sunglasses on. You never know. Lot’s of Christ’s Love. xoxo ~KILLEEN BRONWYN
