    No, two out of three wallets are common and if I was willing to compromise I would have done so already. I want to keep all of my stuff in one place for ease of carrying.

    it all boils down to what you consider "small" & "thin", otherwise its all based on perception

    my wife has struggled over years on this same issue, she has gone through countless wallets, obviously we're not talking the same size wallets here so her choices/experiences really cant help but in order to get any efficient fb/help/suggestions we need measurements, ideally peak tolerance measurements, and even then its still a crapshoot because there's the "how do the coins stack inside the coin pouch" issue, and the "is it a flap snap or zipper coin pocket" issue, so yeah....

    Design something custom to fit your needs from someone like April in Paris.

    I live in a city and many places don't take cards.

    Additionally, if I'm at a bar, why would I wait for them to bring my card back and sign or why would I start a tab that I'm likely to forget to close at some point. Cash is just easier for shenanigans.

    I also throw all my change into a jar at home everyday. I hate loose coins.

    Yeah, I mean. I was walking down the streets of brooklyn a few years ago and found a guy selling custom bags and wallets. I had him make two truck tarp wallets for me. Still working on the first one. I like minimalism and thinness for wallets. Leather would have been nice, but I think these are cool.

    Mine are red and black in college colors.

    i've always just used one of these. wrap your cash around your cards, then clip.

    I feel it's a waste of effort and time to have to move all of my cards, change, and bills from one pocket to another, removing them, and what have you and just want to keep them all in one place. Not only does it keep everything safe, but it also protects my pockets from the wear that change causes and stops me from pulling out just a couple of crumpled bills when I need to pay for something. Cash is preferable to cards because it allows me to see exactly how much I have left and adjust my purchasing habits accordingly. Cards are required for identification, emergency, and RFID chip building access purposes. I always use change for my purchases and thus have less than $5 in change in my wallet at all times.

    My current wallet is a leather bi-fold with external coin pocket (very much like the one I linked), but only measures 4" x 3.25" x 0.5" empty. With less than $5 in change and all of my bills and cards, it's still about 1" thick. Unfortunately it's getting old; the leather is cracking and the snap on the coin pocket no longer seals properly. It's got a rounded bottom edge so it fits nicely in any shape of pocket. I couldn't ask for a better wallet, but apparently wallets like this are ridiculously rare! I've searched all the stores in my area and none of them carry anything like it.

    Other specifications I would consider ideal are snap closures (velcro feels yuck, zippers are too bulky, haven't seen any rope closures on wallets), a black/dark brown/burgundy colour (burgundy would probably be ideal), and a lack of branding (or at the very least no EXTERNAL branding).


    Also, interested to hear about more people's thoughts on wallet vs. no wallet.

    Man, I wish I could just carry a couple cards and a couple bills - I lug around so much change it's ridiculous since the lowest denomination of paper currency is $10 here and a LOT of places don't take credit cards and need to carry 10 or so cards with me. I use just about the most minimal wallet that can fit all this - a double fold with a snap and a coin pouch

    April in Paris is probably the best you can do unless you regularly commission Hermes one offs. The owner used to make said customs for Hermes.

    I use one of these for cards, subway tickets, etc. Cash goes in front pocket. Coins go into tip jar / busker guitar case / parking meter / gumball machine.

    I have one of these made by forum member @luk-cha, notes go in the middle room and coins go loosely in the pocket.
