Finishing touches: Ferragamo Money Clips.

Thursday, 22 January 2009


People with an athletic background in team sports have probably heard the saying ”A chain is only strong as its weakest link”. Not only does it apply in team sports and engineering but also to fashion. Regardless if you look more striking than Cinderella does at 23:59pm, whatever strengths are in your appearance will collapse like a house made out of a deck of cards if undressing your feet reveal half dirty sports socks will a holes under the heel. Such a negative sight will engrave itself in people’s brain harder than any positive memory they might have of you. Never under estimate the power of bad publicity.

Money is money regardless of appearance but how money is presented reflect an individual’s tidiness and organisational skills. Reaching down your left jeans pocket for a bundle of wrinkled bank notes tangled up in receipts will make any cashier shake their head in dismay as they will have to straighten out the mishandled notes. These money clips from Ferragamo are an excellent way of keeping exposed bank noted neat and easily accessible.

i use a ferragamo wallet, and it's the exact same leather as the first money clip!

The colour is certainly gorgeous, I have yet to step into a Ferragamo store so I should probably pay a visit to their store on Sloane street.

The money clip is cool. However, since I live in an almost cashless society, I'd have little use for one. Nearly every transaction down here in New Zealand is conducted via an electronic funds trasfer system known as EFPOS.

About the only people that do cash transactions down here are crims! LOL ;)

umm Bill...I'm pretty sure most western countries have EFPOS (sic) I happen to come from Australia (your big brothers to the west) and i still happen to use cash for 40% of my daily acquisitions...

I have never seen on of these, I dont see what they have over a plain wallet. Its like having a coin organizer.

@Reece, even though I live in NZ I'm not a Kiwi. I'm an ex-pat American. So, Aussies are definitely not my "big brothers". ;)

Regarding the usage of EFPOS in other western countries: In the US, at least 3 years ago when I was last there, it's unheard of. And, I really have no idea what the situation is like in Australia as I don't travel there. However, EFPOS is so widespread here in NZ that I can, and have, gone weeks at a time without needing to carry cash on my person. As a matter of fact, I can barely remember the last time I had any notes in my wallet. And, quite frankly, I don't miss it.

Bill: Although many people use card for many transactions, it's always good to carry cash for small purchase like milk, a pack of gum and similar. Best of all, cash helps make things easier when it's time to pay for the bill at a restaurant if you are a group of people.

Wow! I had no idea this was going to turn into a debate.

I do quite well with my card and have no need to carry cash. Thanks!
