The Modest Mark Walet Review
The Modest mark wallet is something that I find difficult to evaluate. On the one hand, the design is something that I’ve seen before. It’s nothing new in terms of its look and functionality. On the other hand, I find it very increasingly difficult to criticize the wallet for anything as it does its job as a stylish, functional and attractive minimalist wallet very very well. The Modest Mark really doesn’t disappoint and although it suffers from some common issues (which we’ll discuss) I find it a very enjoyable wallet to use.
The Modest Mark Wallet is as thin as they get if you’re looking for a minimalist wallet with charm and durability then you can go a lot worst then to consider them for your next wallet. Let’s take a closer look at what I like about the Modest Mark.
‘Modest Mark works in a humble studio based in Singapore. We started out designing minimalist wallets, launching our first Kickstarter campaign in 2015 and was very well received. We continued to redesign and innovate on slim minimalist wallets. Through our design philosophy, be it a minimalist wallet, a key organizer or notebooks, we hope to bring a fresh take on everyday carry items to you’.
Look & Design
The design of the Mark Wallet is one that combines both types of leather, on the front, wrapped in canvas material. The high-quality crazy horse leather really gives the wallet a great luxury appearance and great feel. The cutout triangle which mirrors the Modest Marks logo also adds a unique design feature as well as acting primarily as a quick-access slot for cards stored in the very front. Attractive and functional!
The remainder of the wallet is made up of a fairly rough feeling canvas material. This is also where the various color design variations come into play. Modest Mark gives you a choice of 4 standard colors (perhaps more with funding options). These include Royal Blue, Maroon, Jet black and ash grey. I personally used the Maroon and it’s a great unique color that was a nice change.
Functionality & Utility
In practice, the Mark works very much like a typical minimalist wallet. I found it has a total capacity of 5 cards with 2 in the front and 3 in the back. You can indeed fit more but it would be a squeeze and suffers from the normal card bulking issue we’ve all grown to love (or hate). Nevertheless, in general, the wallet has been very pleasant to use, with no glaring issues with day to day use and a nice feel in your front or back pocket.
One issue I did find though, with the canvas, is how secure cards are within their respective slots. The front slot is not the issue but I found the back slot, made from canvas, very loose and could feel the cards moving around quite easily. I tried shaking the wallet and with some force, the 2 cards I had stored did fall out. As you store more cards, (say 3 or 4) it naturally becomes tighter so this issue doesn’t occur. Just something to keep in mind and it shouldn’t deter you from this great wallet.
The Modest Mark is a great wallet for men looking for an attractive and affordable slim wallet. It simply does everything at an above satisfactory level and it far exceeded my expectations in use during my daily carry. I find it my favorite ultra slim and thin minimalist wallet in 2017 so take that as you will. As well as this you can grab yourself this wallet for only $25.00 (with 10% off if you sign up to their mailing list) at a very affordable price compared to other wallets on the market today.
