Launched in Sydney, Australia in 2004, designer Will Sked began more humbly than you might think. Pounding the pavement and popping into local shops to show them a handful of wallets he had made and poof! Voila, Status Anxiety was hit.
Taking inspiration from literal status anxiety, Sked 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. His brand is for a life lived simply, with a greater appreciation for things that last rather than the latest fashion fad.
Though their aesthetic appeal is broad, they’re not for the masses. All their products are still designed in a Sydney studio and continue in a well trodden, minimalist vibe. They're about quality over quantity and a focus on both form and function in every piece. You know we love this. 
Status Anxiety is a bit particular about their materials cuz, c'mon. There's leather, and then... there's leather. Their tanneries develop premium leathers just for them. Some are washed, others shrunken, and some embossed just the way they 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. And how could you not love that?
