    Wallets



    So while taking a break at work a member of upper management was outside as well. This gentleman is always extremely well dressed. He took out his wallet to get his key card and much to my surprise I heard velcro when he opened his wallet. This made me wonder 2 things.


    What does your wallet look like?

    What is your take on velcro on wallets?


    I have a black leather bifold Vespa wallet.

    I ride vintage Vespas which is why I carry this wallet

    I think that velcro on wallets is best left in high school.


    And discuss

    Here's mine :





    Brown leather bifold from Roots.


    I had a velcro wallet from the dollar store in high school. I liked it a lot.

      I use a Slimmy front pocket wallet. Silly name, but it's minimalist and pretty well-designed.

      I used to have the inch-thick filing cabinet wallet, but it had to go.


      No on the velcro, if only because I really hate that noise.

        Got this over a year ago and haven't looked back. The leather is very nice. Made in the US and very slim.

        They actually make a great looking cordovan one now. But that's crazy pricey.

          I have a Big Skinny bi-fold that isn't exactly stylish (although I elected not to have the cheesy logo on the front) but it works extremely well for my needs: http://www.bigskinny.net/multi-pocket.html


          I place more value on function over style when it comes to wallets.

              Carbon Fiber money clip from Superior Titanium... Nice if you work somewhere with metal detectors. Removes the temptation to collect random scraps of paper which I am otherwise susceptible to...

                I bought a Dopp Regatta card case a few years ago. It was $30 or so and the leather is super soft. It has held up very well. The only thing I don't like is that it has a clear front sleeve for my license. It is convenient, but sort of cheapens the wallet in my opinion.

                  I've had a magnetic black leather Coach money clip for about 7-8 years now. I just ordered a Neiman Marcus money clip that is currently in the LastCall sale. There's nothing wrong with my Coach money clip, but I felt I wanted to try something a bit different as the Coach one doesn't have a place to hold my ID or credit cards. I just stick them in the middle of the cash and have the clip hold it all together.

                    I used to carry a money clip, because I hate the bulk of a wallet, and can't understand why anyone would want to carry more than the bare minimum. Then I moved to an extremely warm climate, and found that with 115+F temps and 90+% humidity, my pocket was a soggy mess of bills, so I had to get a real wallet. I bought a cheap department store brand wallet, and dealt with that for a few months, until I was in Florence and bought a nice monogrammed leather one at the Misuri store in the Piazza Santa Croce that is a bifold with a money clip. I hate it, because it's thick, but it was a good souvenir (and I got it almost free with a leather jacket I bought). Headed back to the US next month, and I can't wait to break out the money clip again.
