    I've had a large natural Jean Shop wallet for about 2 months. Picked it up at Hollander & Lexer in Brooklyn. It's just starting to break in nicely. Made in Spain.

    can u post pics?

    Sure -- I will try to take pics later tonight but might not be able to post them for a day or two. The guy at the shop showed me his 5-yr old wallet, and it had developed a rich black patina. I was considering the small wallet, but I'm glad I got the larger. I have too much stuff to carry around these days.

    Another vote for Coach water buffalo - I have the card case in tan. I think they can be had at Coach outlets for as low as $20 or so during sales. It's not tan anymore though; has darkened considerably in the 2-3 years I've had it. Looks pretty cool. Other than that, shows no signs of wearing out anytime soon. [​IMG]

    A good friend of mine turned me on to güs wallets, and been interested in replacing my 12 year old Jurine wallet with one of these. Has anyone had experiences with any of their products and care to share?

    Two options:

    The link above has an alternate view of the wallet.

    and

    güs card case

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    I'm considering buying a tanner bifold wallet. can anyone add any input on the quality of the wallet? Will the natural leather age well? Also, I normally hold about 5 or 6 cards counting my I'd and I'm worried the 4 slots won't be enough. Are the slots deep enough to hold two cards? I like a slim, small wallet. Can anyone recommend any other natural/tan slim bifold wallets <75$?

    For the winter months, have gone to using my derek alexander breast pocket wallet. I have more room to carry this in winter when I have coat and jacket pockets. I prefer this over my small military wallet because the cash pockets are very convenient (I can use the different slots for different denominations, and also keep a blank check or two) and the card holders are nice.

    The Tanner leather does indeed age nicely... here's my natural tan cardholder at the one year mark... no mink oil was used on it; just regular, everyday use.

    If you're looking for something on the conservative side, I'll throw in Aspinal

    I bought one of these two years back and love it.

    I recently received a natural Tanner Goods wallet from my brother as a birthday gift and I love it. I was using a Filson card wallet thing but it was too hard to get cash in and out of the one small top slot so I decided to go back to a bi-fold style wallet. Can't wait to see how this one breaks in as I've only had it for a couple days now.

    I just throw a couple of bills, an ID, and a CTA card in the little cardboard pouch at the back of my moleskine. Works well.

    Got the same one in dark brown. Awesome little wallet. Razor thin.

    I've used mine for three years already and the threads are starting to fray. I might get another soon.

    i don't know if it was for the sake of "styling" for the wallet but do the dollar bills actually fit inside the wallet or are they always peeking out like that?
