If I didn’t already have a bi fold wallet I would get this one to slim down as I like carrying my wallet in the front pocket as well.
In my left pocket, is a kangaroo leather wallet made bySomewhere along the way I've lost my wallet and while one option is to replace it with what I had it's also a good time to look at options.
It was a Tumi Alpha Slimfold ID which for my needs was ideal. Goldilocks size at 9cm x 10.5cm (3.5" x 4.1"), eight card slots (five x primary, two x deep/wide (one at back of each side), one x ID) and a deepish notes pocket that could take one set of unfolded notes in the vertical or two sets of folded notes (i.e. one in each half) in the horizontal position. Durable material that survived multiple trips through the washing machine.
- similar size
- front pocket carry majority of the time, occasionally in suit breast pocket
- eight card slots max
- pass/ID window is nice but not necessary
- real leather (preferred) or ballistic nylon (nothing pretending to be leather)
- cow or some other mammalian leather (shark skin is so 1985)
- matte smooth or pebbled finish
- coin purse (never understood the need for a wallet to have a space for coins, defeats the attempt to be flat/skinny
No particular loyalty to brand or country of origin.
What its replacing.....

I second the ridge. I have the titanium version. Prevents me from keeping too much crap in there to.

While I realize this makes me something of monster what I'd like to get my hands on is a wallet made from seal. I had a pair of cowboy boots with the vamp and heal cap in seal leather (just the leather, no bedazzled fur), thin but tough wearing and very unique texture.The strop guys and the whip makers
know that as far as mammalian leather goes,
kangaroo is the thinnest and toughest.
Use the same but with money strap. Can carry eveyrthing not card size under the strap. Was unsure at first if id miss something but since I got it I never looked back. Total satisfaction.I have been carrying a Ridge aluminum for the past two years and I love it. Perfect for me i have to carry sbout 12 cards and it works good with a built in money clip
Well, the threads always start with requests for *thin* wallet suggestions. Guys want to pretend that the thinness of their wallets is due to the wallet construction rather than the spending.I'm amazed always that wallet threads are so often seen on a shaving forum .. but then I always reply, consistently as I can recall, that my best is a Rogue front pocket in Salmon Skin. Mine goes 3/8 inch thick fully loaded, but it is after all the load that determines the fatness of the wallet ..
I have had 6-8 of these over the years, right from when all they had was one model (ca. 2007). Ironically they discontinued that and I now use this:Thanks to your post, I believe I will buy one. They get great reviews, are inexpensive, and my wallet is dying.
Thank you for the info! I did some research on them and they sound like a real success story.I have had 6-8 of these over the years, right from when all they had was one model (ca. 2007). Ironically they discontinued that and I now use this:
Their original was much better quality.
The material that they use now isn't quite the same. The old one didn't wrinkle.
