I do not have a specific Launer as my favorite (to be honest, I do not own one - only drool over one).  If I had to buy one, I believe I would get the credit card case ones - but that fold in the middle yet still have a place for bills.

 

The black with the red interior is very nice looking...but the bridle leather is appealing as well.  I do not think you can go wrong with any of them.

 

Look at this one...

I don't understand your question. Please forgive delay in response due to lack of Internet access.

Sorry for my rude delay in reply - it's not intentional - I simply don't have my own Internet access, and have to sometimes wait a week or more before I get online to receive and reply.

I have two questions about your kind selection:
1. Why must Launer print/emboss their or its name so large?
2. Don't you think a coin pouch with snap closure necessary for a daily wallet?

I don't get your point with both posts in which a text of merely a single word: >multipost< is included, and would appreciate an explanation?

So have you made a decision?

Thanks very much for your inquiry about my decision, Bear. I've recently been gravitating to Aspinal - and to a wallet or pocketbook with zipper. Unfortunately, Aspinal doesn't offer any brighter coloured leather which I prefer, nor is what they offer of bridle leather.

The idea of the zipper seems to be the next phase in my development. I imagine a zipper promises security of contents, right?

But the price is too high - I wonder if Aspinal has sales, or if the other wallet manufacturers have something better?

You go in to your wallet so often, do you really want to have to unzip it each and every time? It also adds that extra man-made component. I'd rather have a handsewn leather wallet, without any extras. YMMV.

If you feel the need for a coin section, why not get a separate coin purse?  I found one in Spain, a spring closure croc embossed leather for very reasonable cost.  I can't remember where I got it or what it is, but there are many such things available.  That way, you can maintain the thin wallet and have coin access!

by this I hope you're saying you also thought it was crap?

If you really want small, you may be best looking at wallets designed for the US market. A wallet's height, in my experience, is largely a factor of the likely user's likely currency and US dollars tend to be shorter than European currency. In fact I find it odd that a German site would have a wallet that short.

How much actual cash do you carry? I find myself using credt/debit for almost all purchases, so find it much more comfortable to carry a thin card holder and then using a money clip for bills when needed. This streamlines the thickness of the wallet.

As far as the OP's request, I know it doesn't have a coin compartment, but this is about the smallest I've ever seen for a real wallet with a bill compartment:

I looked at it (again). No coin purse. I wonder if anything could fall out?

I discovered that a poster above makes his own leather goods - I overlooked that before because I just read his comment about the leather. However, the bridle leather wallet he offers on his website doesn't seem as fine as that advertised by Ettinger, although the price difference is almost twice as high. My present inclination is Ettinger bridle leather.
