I’m not sure if I want to go back to college but, after staying at the Graduate Ann Arbor, I definitely want to stay in these college town hotels which I wrote about for USA Today 10Best!

Recycled Tie and Shirt Wallets

I take back everything we’ve everything said about suits and ties being boring, after seeing these unique wallets from Laura Skelton.

Handmade from thrift-store pinstripe suits and silk ties (no worries – they’re in excellent condition and fresh as a daisy), each wallet features a pocket for bills and two side pockets for cards. Stick a check in, and you have a great gift for a grad. Stick in pictures of the family, and it’s a much more personal Father’s Day present than just another tie.

We love that Laura has taken some of the most typical, ho-hum gifts for men – wallets and ties – and combined them in a totally creative and practical way.

Find them at one of our favorite shopping sites, Uncommon Goods.
