Please help me find the best replacement for my wallet - criticism of example

This wallet is small and the leather colour is natural. However I would prefer bridle leather. I cannot find any small wallet if I look at Swaine or Ettinger. I only have very few items to carry with me. So I need a small wallet. Please do criticise and advise!

I love the look of Launer...some outstanding options and colors - even bridle.

 

I like Swaine and Ettinger as well - but the Launer come in smaller, foldable package that to me, is more desirable.

Since a wallet is for carrying money in one form or another, green would be the natural choice. foo.gif

I don't like bridle leather for wallets. Too thick. Had a bridle leather card case from Swaine Adeney Brigg--never got used to it. Calfskin is more suitable.

Yes but the OP's link to his wallet seems like it would be much thicker than a standard card case - even an SAB one...don't you agree?

If you want small and slim, skip that one on the link. A coin pouch will just serve to fatten the whole thing

The colour green has its charm - I certainly wouldn't criticise it. Interestingly, that Launer model predicated exotic measures 11 X 9.5 cm and the photograph shows numerous card pockets - I cannot imagine how it compares to the above German model (10,5 X 7,5 cm) supposedly based on the size of a credit card?

I neglected to specify the measurements of the German wallet: 10,5 x 7,5 cm. The catalogue text asserts that this wallet is based on the dimensions of a credit card.
