1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    If you really want small, you may be best looking at wallets designed for the US market. A wallet's height, in my experience, is largely a factor of the likely user's likely currency and US dollars tend to be shorter than European currency. In fact I find it odd that a German site would have a wallet that short.

    How much actual cash do you carry? I find myself using credt/debit for almost all purchases, so find it much more comfortable to carry a thin card holder and then using a money clip for bills when needed. This streamlines the thickness of the wallet.

    I looked at it (again). No coin purse. I wonder if anything could fall out?

    I discovered that a poster above makes his own leather goods - I overlooked that before because I just read his comment about the leather. However, the bridle leather wallet he offers on his website doesn't seem as fine as that advertised by Ettinger, although the price difference is almost twice as high. My present inclination is Ettinger bridle leather.

    Time you bought something rather than talked about it.

    Dear GBR,

    I bought the Ettinger wallet in bridle leather and am quite happy with it. Unfortunately, I forgot it once in a pocket so it got washed at 30 degrees for about 40 minutes, but although it did suffer a bit, it survived. Later I ordered in red an Ettinger passport case, which is also beautiful.
