    ^ Thanks for the pics. It looks quite thick, but compact. Packed full is right! I only carry five cards and a small amount of cash. The stacking of cards in the multiple slots is what makes these types of wallets thick when loaded. Using the top slot for cards and nothing in the bottom slots (or just thin cards with no raised letters/numbers) would make this wallet fairly thin when loaded.

    I should add too that i never carry cash, even though this wallet was designed specifically for that purpose. You have to be careful though when taking cash out of the clip. I once ripped a bill in half because it got stuck

    That's interesting because I thought it looked thin in the photos! I mean, it is a single piece of shell cordovan leather on the bottom, with another single piece on the left and right stitched onto the bottom to hold the cards. It doesn't get any more simple than that. I suppose they could have used a thinner piece of leather but that would have compromised the durability and quality IMO. I think they got it just right and it feels like it will last for several years. What matters most I think is how much you try to stuff inside of it. To help, here are some pics I took of it fully loaded. You can see it is quite compact, and relatively thin overall.

    Looking at getting a new card case and want to keep it simple and preferably inexpensive. Ive been eyeing this card case on the saks 5th ave website:

    http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT<>prd_id=845524446744956

    its made for the saks collection by a different brand. im assuming the quality should be decent but curious to know if anyone has any experience with these?

    added a screen shot of the page for you lazy mofos:

    I think I may have finally found the perfect wallet for me. I was in Nordstrom recently and stumbled upon this Bosca Weekend Wallet...

    http://m.shop.nordstrom.com/s/bosca-...=keywordsearch

    Same wallet on Bosca's website...

    http://bosca.com/weekend-wallet-4433.html

    The Nordstrom reviewer hit the nail on the head on all acounts. This is nice and slim with 4-5 cards and a small amount of cash. I especially like the single gusset currency opening. Nordstrom does pricing matching and they honored Bosca's 10% off first order promo.

    Just switched out to a new slim wallet to cut down on the bulk and wear on dressier occasions. Excited to see how this one ages.

    Natural steerhide Dalee's/Deluxeware, of Japan. It's developed a nice, golden brown patina, darkening with use.
