American Bench Craft: Wallet Review

4 Comments Entrepreneurship

As you can easily see by the above picture, this post is going to be about something epic. And yes, it’s an incredibly epic product – a full grain leather wallet, that’s made in the USA, by none other than American Bench Craft.

American Bench Craft started in 2014 with a strong purpose: Make a better wallet. In addition, they wanted everything to be processed in America – from the materials to the manufacturing. Since their start, they’ve grown rapidly in such a short period of time.

They’ve been featured on numerous sites like The Grommet, Americanologists, Permabuy, Bespokepost and more. And it’s no surprise, because after making an unbelievable wallet that’s gotten tons of media attention, they’ve created other products from belts to bracelets.

When I found out that they were located only 30 minutes north of Boston in Reading, MA, I realized I had to go. To make it even better, they just started promoting their new customizable wallets.

After getting there, I got to see their entire design process and what went into making each and every wallet. It’s a crazy complicated process, and it was insane to see how it’s designed. Here’s a mini video I made of my journey:

After getting the wallet, my mind was blown. Not only is it really sleek and classy, it looks amazing. Even from a distance, the wallet is extremely eye catching, with gold lettering and gold rivets.

Although the wallet is made with the highest quality leather and is a strong, patented design, that isn’t the best part to me. The best part is the marketability: Like any entrepreneur, it’s important to market and brand yourself correctly, and this wallet does just that.

If I’m out at a club, bar, venue, or any random store, it attracts a lot of attention and is a quick conversation starter. A quick glance can easily start a convo, and from there I can talk about music, entrepreneurship, this blog, and more. Not to mention, the wallet looks awesome in general – regardless if someone sees it or not.

Check out their products, you definitely won’t be disappointed: American Bench Craft.

    With my first order, I was very satisfied with the quality of leather goods that American Bench Craft hand makes. I bought the first order directly from them and last week ordered 8 more items for myself and as gifts. I received that order today and again I’m very pleased with the quality of the workmanship. Over the years I have bought many wallets from companies over the years and the stiching broke apart and the leather wore out. Into the trash they ended up. These wallets and the other items I purchased will improve with age because of the quality of leather and no stitching to break loose. It is difficult in todays world to find handcrafted leather goods at a reasonable price

      Couldn’t agree more! My wallet has lasted roughly 2 years now and it’s still in amazing condition

    After researching several wallets I bought the riveted wallet 2 .0 from American bench craft and I’m so glad I did. The wallet is perfect and the customer service was excellent. It was a truly great experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to order from them in the future.

      Couldn’t agree more, I honestly will never use another wallet after using theirs for over a year now
