Sure -- I will try to take pics later tonight but might not be able to post them for a day or two. The guy at the shop showed me his 5-yr old wallet, and it had developed a rich black patina. I was considering the small wallet, but I'm glad I got the larger. I have too much stuff to carry around these days.

Another vote for Coach water buffalo - I have the card case in tan. I think they can be had at Coach outlets for as low as $20 or so during sales. It's not tan anymore though; has darkened considerably in the 2-3 years I've had it. Looks pretty cool. Other than that, shows no signs of wearing out anytime soon.

A good friend of mine turned me on to güs wallets, and been interested in replacing my 12 year old Jurine wallet with one of these. Has anyone had experiences with any of their products and care to share?

Two options:



güs horizontal wallet

The link above has an alternate view of the wallet.

and



güs card case

Thanks in advance for any input.

I'm considering buying a tanner bifold wallet. can anyone add any input on the quality of the wallet? Will the natural leather age well? Also, I normally hold about 5 or 6 cards counting my I'd and I'm worried the 4 slots won't be enough. Are the slots deep enough to hold two cards? I like a slim, small wallet. Can anyone recommend any other natural/tan slim bifold wallets <75$?

For the winter months, have gone to using my derek alexander breast pocket wallet. I have more room to carry this in winter when I have coat and jacket pockets. I prefer this over my small military wallet because the cash pockets are very convenient (I can use the different slots for different denominations, and also keep a blank check or two) and the card holders are nice.

The Tanner leather does indeed age nicely... here's my natural tan cardholder at the one year mark... no mink oil was used on it; just regular, everyday use.
