Waste of money. Get a Property Of... leather wallet in the same style for a fraction of the price. Or, four to five when they're on Gilt.

I know this, I own CP's and Property Of... items and the leather is just as nice on either. So why not save the money and pick up a wallet or two or three for a fraction of the price with the same functionality and look minus the price (honestly, how much do you think the leather costs on these to manufacture)?

Otherwise, I don't understand your question. The money fits in the damn thing like any other wallet? Do you think they made it too small for money? Too big for it? And then it depends on what model from CP you get. Ugh.

Well in Makr wallets you have to double fold your bills and it makes the wallet bulky and a hassle to take money out. So I want front pocket wallet that can fit single folded bills.

What is your point? The ones I have aren't like that at all. Leather and a zipper.

I understand promoting a cheaper alternative that is essentially the same (I haven't seen either in person, so I can't comment)...but who needs two or three wallets?

In my opinion wallets are an investment piece. I've had my Prada wallet forever and I don't see it going anywhere. Most people will use the same wallet for years. Nobody needs two or three wallets. You don't need to sell him on a bargain buy.

There is very little about either of the common projects wallets that scream manhood.
