Collection: Status Anxiety

Status Anxiety didn't have a typical start . . .

Will from Status Anxiety hit the fashion boutiques in his home town of Sydney, on foot, with a few wallets he had made.

Without fail every time he rocked up to a new store, there was one question he was sure to be asked... ‘What is Status Anxiety?’

Status Anxiety is the social condition caused by comparing ourselves to those around us. It's measuring how we're doing in terms of possessions, appearance and job titles etc resulting in status anxiety. It's no coincidence the question you get asked when you first meet someone is 'what do you do?'

This status anxiety can cause us to make decisions with our time and money that compromise what we really value in order to be 'successful'.

We’re not making light of anxiety but drawing attention to the potential affect of this condition which can leave us poorer.

Status Anxiety is about worrying less on measuring up to others’ perceptions, not taking ourselves too seriously and reassessing real value in all areas of our lives. They are for a life lived simply, with a greater appreciation for things that last rather than the latest fashion fad.

Since 2004, Status Anxiety have been doing their darndest to create high quality, minimalist leather goods that complement this ethos of simplicity and true value in all areas of our lives including what we buy.

Though their appeal is broad, they are not for the masses. All Status Anxiety products are still designed in their Sydney studio and continue in their well trodden minimalist aesthetic. Status Anxiety are about quality over quantity and a focus on both form and function in every piece.

Status Anxiety - do you have it?

There's leather, and then... there's leather. Status Anxiety's tanneries develop their premium leather just for them. Some are washed, others shrunken, and some embossed just the way we like it.

Every Status Anxiety piece is handcrafted in inherently awesome, ethically sourced, predominantly Italian and Brazilian leather. And rest assured, no rare or endangered snow leopards are harmed in the process.

You change your clothes daily (hopefully), but your bag and wallet go with you every day. With Status Anxiety's minimalistic and uncomplicated designs, you can do your thing without looking like you take yourself too seriously. No one wants that.
