8th August 2016 – The AUGUSTUS leather wallet collection commemorates August Man's 10th anniversary and the name that it's associated with, demonstrated with a specially designed logo that recalls the grand Roman Senate with the Roman numeral 'X'.
August Man is a definitive men's style journal packed with features read by the globe-trotting, cosmopolitan man who covets success and the finer things in life. The word 'august', along with its calendar reference stems from the name of the first Roman emperor, Augustus Caesar, the man who established the Roman Empire.
Gnome & Bow worked closely with the August Man team for many months, to conceptualise their story and weave its essence into a characteristic five piece wallet collection, each named after a key person who helped shape the Roman empire:
Each wallet is crafted in a full grain grey leather, black and white glen plaid lining and finished with their signature hand stitch, this time in a matching royal blue. Other intricate details include a unique X-shaped card slot and a deboss of the collection emblem, inspired by Roman pillars and the Roman numeral 'X'.
They come packaged in an exquisitely designed book box packaging and each design is limited to 100 pieces worldwide.
AUGUSTUS is testament to Gnome & Bow’s unwavering pursuit for classic, elegant aesthetics whilst embracing the art of storytelling.
