    Hey all!

    Any cool suggestions to even more slim wallets that you've used?

    I own a DUN wallet, a Dash 3.0, a Haru wallet, Natsu wallet and Aki Wallet (me and my team runs kisetsu.co).

    Just want to find out how many cards do you guys usually carry and amount of cash, and also what else do you guys carry around with you on a daily basis?

    I love collecting wallets and designing new ones. Do share in this thread, some of the great features you like or don't like about a wallet and maybe I can design something cool! ;)

    First time poster here. I've been waiting for a post like this. can you make something like this;
    https://www.lucrin.co.uk/accessorie...pact/horizontal-case-4-cards-side-opening.htm

    its a credit card case but with a side opening, so much easier to shove in cash and receipts etc... I used to have one from Zegna which fell to pieces till i eventually found this one from Lucrin. Its ok but the leather is quite soft, could do with being more sturdy. can you make one.

    I stopped using wallets years ago. A money clip holds 2 credit cards, 3-4 of my business cards (although I have a few in all of my jackets / suits) and enough cash to make the day.

    More than enough.

    The problem with these is that they are slim until you load them with credit cards. Plus, you always end up carrying cards you don't need.

    Because you check what cash you have daily (before leaving home etc), with the money clip you always carry the absolutely necessary.

    Just my 2p of course.

    I use this. It covers everything, fits cards and cash. What I find usefull for slimness is that it has a construction with no full leather fold (not sure this makes sense) which is really where bulkness comes from, IMHO

    It's only got 4 card slots, so it stays quite slim. I love mine. :D

    This one is really simple and I have one of these as well. I don't separate my cards and cash and therefore this cardholder gets bulky when I fit bills in (folded in quarters) or it will jut out when folded in half. Overall I think its a great and simple wallet but don't you think 65 pounds is a little too pricey? :/

    Do you use a metal money clip or the leather with magnet one?

    I totally agree. If you carry about 2-6 cards, a simple cardholder like this will do the trick!

    I am currently using this cardholder wallet. This is one of our team's designs.

    I am carrying 4 cards and some bills for my daily activities.

    Hey! I think they don't have that model. The link sends me to the category. But was it something like this one?

    That's right, as Pennypacker says "no one carries wallets anymore, they went out with powdered wigs."

    As for what I'd recommend, I've also found card cases to be the best fit for me, I only need to carry 4 cards and this allows me to do so without breaking the lines of my pants. There's also a slot for notes. I really like the Ettinger Bridle Hide card cases, and Berg & Berg did a nice Nubuck one, though I don't think they're in stock anymore.
