Slim Wallet/Credit Card Holder - Page 3

I just picked up the Alden credit card case and love it - but as noted, you have to be willing to live with the logo.

Do you think the logo is really that obvious? I mean, who looks at the logo on something like that as you pull it out of your trousers or coat pocket? As for Asprey -- how's the quality? Anynone know the quality of Launer? Thanks gents. H

Here's a Scottish bridle hide version of the flat card case from Glen Royal, less formal than the Launer flat case Horace mentioned. This item is available from Classic Luggage in Washington D.C. by special order. http://www.glenroyal.com/glenroyal/html/access.htm Horace, frankly, if you as the user will be concerned about the logo before you purchase the Alden case, I'd bet that the concern will continue after purchase. But others (Kai and Arenn) don't care one jot and who is to say they're wrong?

i have the Paul Smith wallet/credit card holder that opens up to reveal a printed photo image of a Vespa GS front done up proper mod style with the mirrors/lights. i just saw one over the weekend that was equally smashing, with the closeup image of a fellow playing guitar in b/w, then there's the one with the Paul Smith mini cooper that i would get in a second if i saw one. i like the smaller creditcard wallet since there is less slots to fill up with garbage and keeps it slim.

I disagree with all of the critics of Coach. I've got a Coach magnetic money clip that has lasted me at least seven years, and a coach card wallet that has lasted at least five years. The card wallet's predecessor, also a Coach, only lasted two years, but that was my fault as it ended up in the washing machine. Of course, it could just be that all of my Coach items were produced domestically, prior to shipping production overseas. Does anybody know when that happened?

I use a Perry Ellis Portfolio wallet that I bought at Macy's for about $35. It's very thin and sleek. I keep my cash in one pocket and the credit cards in another (that's about all it fits).

What do you think of BOSCA? Are they well-made? http://www.boscaonline.com/wallets-money-clips.html

(STYLESTUDENT @ Feb. 19 2005,06:30) Alden is logical (but the logo is conspicuous).
none of you have mentioned the notecase for wear in the coat pocket.  This is my favorite, and you don't have the back problems.  Of course you must be wearing a coat. I found something at Harrods once, I think it was by Launer, but I have been unable to find since, that was the thinest notecase I'd ever seen.  It was double-sided, without flap.  Perfect for evenings out.
Www.englishhall.com sells what I believe is the full Launer range, including notecases. Richard James makes magnificent cardholders. They're handmade and soft, and very good quality. Of course, for the price you might be able to get even better. Depressing that people consider Hartmann "budget". Perhaps we need to invite Howard on this forum.

My latest purchase in the small wallet department (couldn't resist the deal and think that Smythson offers outstanding quality at an unfair (not a typo) retail price): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW This latest round started when I realized that my newest slim card case (black calf Dunhill) could well be another fake (because price on the box was in Hong Kong dollars). But not sure. Edit: Attention EBay shoppers. Thin full-length Daines Hathaway wallet now on sale (much less than Launer): http://<a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/......29&rd=1</a>

You've misunderstood, I think.  I don't care one way or the other about the logo for the Alden case.  What I was questioning was the (your?) original assertion that the logo on the Alden is a bit conspicuous. I certainly don't have that concern.

I mentioned it originally as a concern that prevented me from purchasing this item. Arenn mentioned it also, but it did not stop him. In that I also attributed this concern to you, I regret the misunderstanding.

Related question - how do people manage to get by w/ carrying few enough items to only use a small card case? I have wanted to move to this approach for some time, but find I have too many essential things to carry. I do fit it all into a very compact RL wallet made of a black watch plaid vinyl I think w/ leather lining. that has a separate money clip built in. It's lasted me over 10 years. Anyway maybe I'm too complicated to get down to few enough items to go any smaller. I've got drivers license, 2 debit cards, 1 Amex, 1 Visa, Library card, Y membership card, corp ID, health insurance card, car insurance card, plus cash.
