    I am shopping for a new wallet, and I have this one particularly in mind:

    http://www.aspinaloflondon.com/eshop...d-cobalt-suede

    It looks nice, and the price seems very good for the quality.

    Do any members have any of these wallets? How soft and strong is the leather? Do the suede parts not last as long as the leather parts?

    I keep my wallet in my front pocket, and it is important that it be thin. At the moment, I have a bifold nappa wallet which is falling apart. With 5 credit cards and a few bills, it is about a half an inch thick. Is the Aspinal wallet noticeable thicker than that? I was considering a separate slim card case and money clip, but it doesn't seem like a slim bifold is really that much larger in the pocket.

    Also, if anyone knows of comparable wallets for under $100 or so, I would love to hear about them.

    Thanks!

    I don't have an Aspinal wallet, but I have ordered some and given them out as gifts. They are very good quality for the price.

    You can get one for cheap from Aspinal's ebay store, if you don't mind the spelling mistake:

    They're pretty good quality in materials and finishing for the price. I have no real complaints there. But coming from a smaller card case/bill-holder, I found the bi-fold too large to carry in my front pocket. It's now sitting in my drawer. If you're used to a 3.5x5 wallet, I think it's a good buy especially with the variety of colors you can get it in. Can't comment on the wear aspect as I pretty much just put cards in it, put it in my pocket, and took them out.

    Has anyone ordered one of these wallets with the spelling mistake? Where and with what color exactly is it engraved and how visible is the engraving?

    I went to the website: http://www.aspinaloflondon.com/eshop...d-cobalt-suede

    If you click on view more images, there is a picture where I see some writing on the inside in gold. Maybe this is similar to the engraving on these spelling mistakes?
