We’d say something like “a good wallet is hard to find” but clearly, such a statement would be false because we’ve never found a wallet that hasn’t been good. Suitable, yes. Functional and able to last a year or three, sure. Spend ten bucks and you’ve got a perfunctory wallet for a good three years. But if a good wallet isn’t hard to find, why not put forth the extra effort and find a great one? Agorables is here to help you with your search.
It’s clear that Agorables’ work is not for everyone, which means that it’s for a certain type of person–one with taste for the nitty and the gritty. Take a look above at both the Spanish Rose skulls and the tattoo gun wallet. These are perfect for those men and women who show more ink than skin when taking off their shirts, who can name five brands of whiskey known for taking rust off of a chrome fender and can most likely beat your dad in an Arm-wrestling contest. Or, they might be those who like the look of Agorables’s art and want to show it off to the world.
Vinyl wallets are different than your most leather variants. We’ve spotlighted some vegan products in the past so perhaps the idea of not carrying around a folded chunk of some animal’s processed skin appeals to you. We can understand that.
You can have the animal on the outside of your wallet, as seen here on this Black Panther design inspired by Sailor Jerry’s tattoos. We’ve seen a couple former navy workers, giving up their sealegs for a shovelhead, sporting some designs similar to the one up there. There’s no policy against ink within the Union. In fact, the Local holds a yearly tattoo and hot rod convention down in Tuscaloosa. This year, it was fellow Vinnie Edmonds out from Portland who won the best in show for his original design of a human circulatory system composed strictly out of the parts used to build the engine for a ’67 Dodge Charger. Beautiful.
It’s not just classic ink that you’ll find on Agorables wallets. No, they also have work for the sick and twisted sense of humor. Here, we have the Chupacabra food pyramid, for when you’re out on the road and have to ask “have I eaten a well balanced diet fit for a mythological Mexican beast?” These are the issues plaguing today’s youth and Argorables will be there to ferret them towards success and dementia.
But, they also can do cute.
Cute and gritty, but also colorful. This Day of the Dead themed wallet will either impress or horrify (possibly both) your friends and loved ones when you pull it out to pay for dinner. Perhaps this is what you want, so that people, so impressed by the sheer fear-inducing might of your wallet, will offer to pay for you. This is the power that could be yours. Buy today!
You can find Agorables main site here, which will direct you back to their Etsy shop. Be sure to contact them and say, “Yes. I want to bring about fear through monetary displays of might to all who gaze upon me.” Or say hi. We’re sure they’ll like the message either way. And come back here next week for another Tuesday uEtsy.
