Wintercheck Factory: William Wallet

I’m a total packrat when it comes to my wallet – it has everything I could possibly need in there – various credit cards, ID cards, discount cards, cash, keys, tissue, external thumb drives, tissue, even a tampon… but man does it weigh down my bag!

Horrors, that is my current ‘wallet’

It’s great for day-to-day life in Singapore, but when I’m travelling, I like to streamline my wallet completely because I’m a little paranoid about losing stuff overseas. All I try to carry when I go abroad are:

  • Drivers License (good for ID and car rental/driving purposes)
  • 2 Credit Cards (1 stowed away in case of emergency)
  • Spare Transitlink card (for SG, just in case)
  • 1 Flat thumbdrive (in case of camera emergencies – I’ve lost my camera before but was saved by my photo backup!)

The William Wallet, designed by Kristen Wentreck of the Wintercheck Factory is a great stylish way to keep all your essentials together, while keeping your pockets light. It’s really pretty, the metallic black surface doesn’t scratch easily and goes with everything!

It’s especially great for the men who often ruin great dress pants with bulging pockets… Or ladies who have those really small totes and no pockets in their dresses to stow bulky wallets. Travellers can stash it in coat/jeans pockets unobtrusively and keeping their hands free for maps and take pictures.

Besides travelling, I’ll probably use mine when I head out to the clubs and I don’t want anything on-hand. Dancing on a crowded dancefloor with a sling bag/wristlet? Not particularly glam if you want to get groovy~ And I’m definitely taking it with me on my next trip, whenever that will be!

The Travelling Essentials and the William Wallet
tadah! All in one compact piece. The essential stuff I put on the outside, those I don’t touch so much I keep safely tucked inside
This is definitely streamlining!
Mine currently holds TOT namecards

  1. I’ve been looking for the wallet for a while now but i can’t seem to find them, If you’re selling them I’d like to place an order please .. And if it’s possible to ship them to Saudi Arabia ..

  2. Hi, I would love to get either a black or silver. Amazing find, any possibility of having them in stock? πŸ™‚

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Brandon,

      no more black at this point, but i just mayyyyy get my hands on some backstock silver pieces if you’re willing to wait awhile! Keep a look out towards the end of March for that, i’ll keep your email on hand and let you know more details when i have them! In the meantime, you could consider the coloured ones too, they are really quite nice as well =)

    • Hi all! Thanks for your interest in the William Wallet… currently i only have a few pieces of Black in stock
      The silver ones flew off the shelf before I even had a chance to make an order!
      If you’re interested in placing an order, head over to the shop page for more details or drop me an email please!


  4. Hi there –
    I am also interested in the black or silver. Do you have either in stock still? My boyfriend would love this!


  5. Hi :

    Do you have any black matte or distressed silver left? Also, would you ship to US/Australia?
    Wintercheck only has the colored ones in stock.
    Please do let me know! πŸ™‚


    • Hi IG,

      Yes Black is still available. Am checking to see if Steel is still available…
      Shipping to UK is not a problem! drop me an email if you want to place an order =)


  6. Hey – I’m praying that you have the William wallet in matt black?

    Their website has the funky yellows and reds (black’s out of stock) but I would rather play it conservative on this one πŸ™‚

    P.S. – Amazing to find this available in Singapore! Thank you!
