Company Description

In 2012, Brooklyn designer Jack Sutter set out to redefine the wallet category forever by introducing the TGT (pronounced “tight”) wallet. His blockbuster Kickstarter remains the most successful wallet project in Kickstarter history. TGT continues to develop products based on simplicity, reduction, freedom and keeping it tight.

TGT wallets are constructed from soft Italian leather and high-quality elastic. They fit into the tightest pocket, and make pants fit better.

TGT's yarn and elastic are custom made in the USA, and all wallets are manufactured in the USA.
