    @greg_s - Thanks for the suggestion sir. I will definitely add it to the list.

    @ Ben: I haven't had the wallet for too long, pushing a year maybe. All I can say is that I typically am not the nicest person to my leather goods. I like the patina they get over time. This wallet has just continued to look better and shows no signs of bad wear and tear. Granted, that's just after a year. The leather is purposefully thin, but doesn't seem flimsy at all. So far so good. I've definitely spent $80 in much worse ways. I don't dig money clips, but I don't dig sitting on a thick wallet either so this seemed to be the choice for me.

    @Bryan - you probably have a point. Let's open up to $100 or under, no coin pocket necessary, and has to hold at least 5 cards and some bills. Minimalist is fine but not necessary.


    @greg_s - I really like that wallet. You've had one before? For some reason, the construction makes it look flimsy. Also, the words "glued" make me doubt it's longevity. Thoughts?

    If you look at the first picture where the brown looking cards are coming out on the inside of the bi-fold. That is one of 2 credit card slots (one on each side). Then just the cash slot. The inner flaps are just part of the design and the way that it is made. It's function is just to be super slim and minimal, so they are folded out of a single thin piece of leather (hence the flaps on the inside).

    @greg_s: that's a pretty awesome looking wallet. I wish there were more pics though. Does it hold any credit cards, or do you just have to stick it in the cash slot? What's up with those inner flap looking areas on the sides? I would definitely be interested in that when it becomes available, if it were a bit more useable. I need room for at least my public transportation card, work id card, credit card, debit card, and my driver's license.

    This one is slightly above your $75 threshold (at $80) and currently sold out, but it is the best damn wallet I've ever owned. Also, it has received more compliments than any wallet I've ever owned.

    I agree, ChrisW's suggestion looks a bit feminine. Perhaps with some wear it might look less so, but at $96 I wouldn't risk it myself :P.


    I really think you're best off not worrying about the coins. There's really not much stylish about counting your pennies out to the cashier/waitress/whatever, so why bother carrying it around? Depending on where you are, the people serving you could almost always appreciate your spare change as a tip. If you don't want to do that, throw the change in one of your other pockets and when you get home put it in a jar. Once you have a bunch of coins go cash them in for non-coin currency.


    There are a lot of nice low-profile wallets, once you get coins out of the picture. Even the local Macy's has a rather large selection, but they probably won't be as nice as the $75 threshold can buy.

    Must it have a place for coins?

    That looks really nice, but it looks a little feminine to me? Thanks for the suggestion. Anything else?

    I'm not sure if this would interest you: http://corterleather.bigcartel.com/product/brewster-long-wallet


    It is a little more than your budget ($96) but the guy's materials and workmanship are amazing.

    I prefer my wallets thin and that means no coin pocket. Goodluck with your search!

    Wallet?



    Hey everyone... I would like to find a nice wallet with a coin pocket where all the coins won't fall out. Preferably, it'll be cheaper than $75. Thanks
