Charming Jack Spade Matchbook Holder

The only problem that I can see with the Jack Space leather matchbook cover is access to a reliable supply of strike front matches. There was a time when all matchbooks had the sulfur strip on the front of the folder, but there must have been national pocket fire disaster as US manufacturers moved the strike strip to the back. Japan has somehow avoided catastrophe as the sulfur strip is still on the front of Japanese matchbooks.

Of course, nobody needs a leather matchbook caddy, but at $10 it is certainly a cheap way to up your barfly profile. Even if you are not interested in distinguishing yourself at your local, the quiet pleasures of little luxuries like this are undeniable.
