AUGUSTMAN x Gnome & Bow Presents AVGVSTVS – A Collection Of Small Leather Goods
We’re hitting a decade of style, substance and success this year. A milestone we definitely would not have been able to achieve without the support of our avid readers.
There are a few things we’re doing in conjunction with our 10th anniversary. Firstly, our very own associate editor Farhan Shah will be competing in an amateur fight at Legends Unleashed! this 10 September. And on 24 September, a team of four from our editorial team will be running in the ASICS City Relay in suits. These initiatives go towards Global Clinic, which you can read more about here and click here to support.
On the style front, we now have AVGVSTVS – a collaboration with established local accessories player Gnome & Bow. Just like how the name of our magazine came about (and no, we definitely did not launch in August), it’s derived from Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor.
Augustus Caesar undoubtedly had power over his empire but was wise to know that no one person could rule alone. Together with his team of advisors and support of his wife, he maintained a fair rule. We saw in him what an august man stands for and referenced the AVGVSTVS five-piece collection based on Augustus Caesar as well as his consorts.
The Maecenas Cardholder
A classic cardholder with an open slot that can store over 10 cards. Use this to keep from overstuffing your wallet with cards or even as a convenient alternative to a regular-sized wallet if all you need is something more compact.
The Livia Card Wallet
Keep it simple and sleek with the Livia. With six card slots and a cash compartment to boot, this minimal cardholder-sized wallet fits perfectly into a jacket pocket without creating an unsightly bulge.
The Piso Billfold With Money Clip
Prefer to see your cash at a glance and hate fumbling around for the right amount? The Piso is the full-blooded option with eight card slots and a money clip right in the middle to secure cash.
The Agrippa Wallet
A classic never gets old. The Agrippa is our take on the standard wallet with eight card slots. The glen plaid fabric lining that is apparent in all five pieces of the collection is best displayed here to full effect too.
The Augustus Billfold With Coin Pouch
The complete all-in-one wallet is Augustus. It has everything the Agrippa has with the addition of a coin pouch for loose change. And with the quality stitching that Gnome & Bow is known for, it’s sure to hold on to every penny.
Each soft leather piece is stamped with a specially designed Roman numeral ‘X‘ logo that recalls the grand Roman Senate. And they’re individually packed in an AVGVSTVS book cover too.
