Where are Serman Brands products designed?
Our wallets are proudly designed here in Roseville California. Thanks to your help we are able to test and design new prototypes in house here in the United States. Occasionally our team works with external designers in places like Europe and Asia. This helps keep things fresh, with new ideas flowing through our Head Quarters.

What currencies do the wallets hold?
Most SERMAN|BRANDS wallets are designed to hold US currency (Don't worry, we are working on something exciting for our international customers). We do provide the size of the wallet in the description and picture of the US currency position.
Our 5.0 & 5.S model can fit most international bills, if the bills are folded.
How many cards do the wallets fit?
For each wallet, we let you know the number of cards it can hold on the product page. For example our 1.0 model best fits 6-8 cards. We do not recommend you to over stuff the wallet, this will put excessive strain on stitching and materials and can cause it to tear over time.
Money Clip Care
How to tighten the mechanical money clip:
The money clip can lose tension over time, because it is regulated by a twist on twist off. Take the money clip out of the wallet it and turn it clock wise to tighten it. The money clip should regain tension. If not we do sell money clip replacements for 2.99 with free shipping!

The money clip is not glued to the wallet to give you the option to remove the money clip completely and use the wallet without it. Also, this way it is easier to replace the money clip.
We recommend keeping the same number of cards in each slot that you decide to begin with. For example: if you begin with 3 cards in a pocket, over time the leather will stretch out to hold those 3 cards. If you try to down size to 1 or 2 cards in that same pocket then those cards will become loose. This is not a defect, just the nature of all leather. Is this principle the same for the pull tab pocket? Yes.
What to do when leather gets dirty?
DO: Take a cotton cloth and some water. Damp the cloth and gently rub the surface of the wallet until the dirt gets absorbed in the damp cloth. This will not remove the color of the leather.
DON’T: Use any soaps, detergents, or vinegar because this may alter the color of the leather.
What to do when leather gets wet?
DO: Gently wipe any standing water on the wallet with a clean, dry cloth. Next, allow for the wallet to dry at room temperature. Give your wallet time to dry because speed drying will produce crinkles. Make sure your wallet is in its original shape when drying.
DON’T: Use a blow dryer because this will produce wrinkle in the wallet. Exposing your wallet to extreme temperatures will also produce wrinkles.
What to do when leather is dry?
DO: Rub an all-natural, clear product (leather cream or solution) that is indicated for providing moisture. Apply a small amount onto the wallet with a lint-free cloth.
DON’T: Wait until your wallet gets really dry. Regular conditioning will increase the life of your wallet.
IF LEATHER GETS SCRATCHED
How to remove scratches: apply a small amount of leather conditioning or use a small amount of olive oil. Use a cotton-swab applicator (such as a cotton ball or a Q-tip) for the procedure. After applying the oil directly to the scratch, rub it into the surrounding leather with a circular motion. Allow the oil to dry for an hour, then wipe it off with a clean cloth.
How does the smart strap work?
Step 1: Pull on the smart strap to reveal your cards.
Step 2: Push down on your cards, to reinsert the red strap.
(if you are not reinserting cards back into the slot, simply use your finger to push the strap back into the pocket).
<< closeLeather Materials
Full-grain leather/Top-grain leather
Our exceptional leather qualities include full-grain leathers and top-grain leathers. These leathers are full of richness and functionality performance. This leather type guarantees a cow hide that is in its natural form and has all of its layers intact. Since the grain layer is pure and very tight, the leather is very durable. Because of this, depth and character are achieved and contribute to the individual personality of each wallet.
This leather stays true to its nature by being receptive to scratches. This beautifies the outer leather persona. With use, the wallet will absorb the natural oils of your hands which will allow the wallet to develop a rich and dark color. Each wallet has a compelling story to tell.
Available in the colors: Texas Brown, California Desert, Charcoal Black, Canyon Red, Slate Gray
Our dress leathers will flatter your individual style. These leathers are coated to produce an impeccable exterior that is more resistant to markings. The coating protects the wallet from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. Here, dependability and attractiveness are intermingled. Furthermore, the leather is sufficiently strong and substantial. Treat yourself.
Available in the colors: Jet Black, Chocolate, Mahogany, Luxe Blue, Titanium Gray, Dark Caramel, Midnight Black, Morning Roast, Army Green, Arctic Blue, Alpine Green.
<< closeRFID Blocking Technology
What is RFID Protection? Why is it important?
SAFETY. PRIVACY. SECURITY - Our wallets are equipped with advanced RFID SECURE Technology, a unique metal composite, engineered specifically to block 13.56 MHz or higher RFID signals and protect the valuable information stored on RFID chips from unauthorized scans.
All Pass cards for work operate at different frequencies. The RFID lining does not shield against some cards that operate at low frequencies of 125 kHz like hotel key cards, employee ID Badges, transit passes etc. However the RFID lining does protects Credit or Debit cards and Enhanced driver's license.
RFID uses 2 common frequencies, 125Khz proximity and 13.56Mhz "smart". Most access credentials, bus type passes, etc in the US still use 125KHz proximity which the product data specifically states is not blocked.
Are all SERMAN|BRANDS items RFID protected?
Yes, all of the SERMAN BRANDS items are equipped with RFID blocking technology.
