The history of the wallet chain dates back to the 1950’s. It’s birth was tied to the credit card and gas companies.

Credit Cards became popular in the 1950’s and gas station owners tried to encourage cash transactions by offering a discount for purchasing gas with cash. This was an incentive for truckers who spend a ton of money on gas to carry large amounts of cash. The trucker wallet was born

It was long enough to hold cash without having to fold it in half. And it had a chain to secure it to your pants.

Eventually bikers picked up on the trend because they were losing their while riding.

Now everyone participates in the trend.
