Your comment is quite appreciated, and it is indeed true that the coin pouch does present fat, but I'm afraid my daily life requires coin. I don't see how I can avoid coin. And another accessory in my pocket - along with passport cover (the lampart string idea seems too complicated to hang onto) and wallet for my plastic or laminated library and trainfare reduction cards would mean more to lose.

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

Thanks very much for expanding my horizon - here deep in the jungle, I never heard of Launer. You speak my language, too: "small, foldable" - but my inspection of the website gets me dizzy , especially if I look at the prices - please do you mean any Launer or do you have a favorite?

Last visit to the disco I lost my new leather gloves made by Eska in Austria. So I do have a connection to cordovan, which you recommend as material. But my missing, probably stolen gloves were soft, whereas cordovan is shiny and stiff, right?

If so, I don't think the human spirit was done justice because at least one certain important deep thinker and philosopher was not included. Ha, ha, ha! (Guess who,
!)

PS: I recognise now that I've confused Sophie's Choice with Sophie's World. I don't know what Sophie's Choice is.

It's shell cordovan.

Obviously, this kind contributor wishes to emphasize material and is enthused by his choice and the recognition it gets. However, my problem to hold my horses is not solved just by minimalism of mention of material. I need the other causes - form (design) etc. to get my ideal wallet materialised.

I also think that a wallet should be green.

I didn't realise that that green was of 8 baby crocodiles. My tears are allegedly not the real thing for the human being, whose genuine nature is destined not merely to let his body let loose bodily substances, but to employ my brain to think what all this means. Which reminds me that green is a color for symbolic representation of envy, too. Somebody has more than me. I in-visio the other who has property I wish I had. Like the whereabouts of my ideal wallet, for example.

Gratefully acknowledged as dramatic visual enrichment for the colorless word green. I'm so pleased that my thread attracts such artistic creatures who know color is almost as great as God. But the sensually textured leather wallet design is suspiciously full of card pockets injuring my simplistic prejudice, or with other words: why so many - isn't that sinful? Seems to me my Teutonic nature boy model above without photo has more virtue. Neverthemore - where can I get this wallet? Where did you find it, please?

People need several credit cards - they use one to pay off the other.

This one is from Bottega Veneta.

Crocodiles much relished are diminished by hungry pythons, whose increase not at least is due to their inclination to devour any crocodile they meet, even if their dinner can sometimes after being swallowed move more than a python can tolerate. Lizards must be what Launer uses for that beautiful green leather, right?

I read an interview with that Bottega Veneta director, a German designer who went to a Waldorf school and wants everything handcrafted. By the way, he has a house in Florida and doesn't want to return to Europe. At least that's what was in the magazine quoted. His models look like he got some inspiration from Eurythmic veils. Your higher financial transaction is cool and sounds like what Steiner claims about the relativity of determination of things - they need each or one another (see his main work, chapter 3), but I ain't got no credit card, just my train and library cards. When I get a job, I can pay off my girlfriend who lends me her credit card to order my new wallet, when I know which one is right. What did you pay for yours, if I'm not getting too close?

I think it was something like €125 on sale.
