Good Morning Lovelies!
I’m in the market for a new wallet, but there’s a catch. I want one with where the change purse part of the wallet closes with one of those endearing clasps. Maybe this is because my mother always had one like that when I was growing up. Or maybe it’s because it reminds me of pretty clutches that have the same closure. But the bottom line is, I’m just not supporting the zipper closure on the change purse of a wallet anymore. I know what you are thinking….what a huge stance you are taking on such an important issue! I really am so political. All joking aside, when I started searching I realized finding a wallet with this feature would be much harder than I expected. However, after searching for “metal clasp wallet”, “metal snap change purse wallet”, and “wallet with metal claspy thingy”, I did figure out what the “feature” is called…..a kiss lock or a kiss clasp! And when you think about it, the two interlocking metal balls DO look like they are making out a little, right? So a completely accurate name.
Once I had the name of the feature correct, it got slightly easier to find….but not much. Apparently these wallets just aren’t that common (damn you zippered pocket), but there are a couple of companies that seem to still be embracing the kiss-lock. Two in particular that have a good selection of nice looking kiss-lock wallets are Ted Baker and Hobo Bags. But for the most part they were few and far between. The ones I did find that I liked are below.
Are you a kiss-lock girl or a zipper girl (or guy)?
