Brooklyn-based designer draws inspiration from an elastic band he found on a head of broccoli.
TGT (Tight) is a wallet designed by Jack Sutter where he got the idea after seeing a friend keep his money and cards together with a thick elastic band. The Brooklyn-based designer uses high-quality elastic in different colors and patterns to create the main part of the wallet. The elastic easily stretches to be able to hold plastic cards, money, and even a USB drive securely.
There’s 2.0 version of the TGT where there’s a small pocket made of Italian leather attached to the elastic. The slim wallet ensures that all the content fits nicely into your pocket or bag without the bulge to “respect the silhouette of the butt.”
The Kickstarter project has already exceeded its pledged goal of $20,000 and has raised over $130,000 with still 20 days to go. Watch the video below to see how TGT looks and how the idea started.
