What wallet do you use? Is there a particular brand or model you are partial to?

For years I have used a Coach Men's slim leather card holder as my wallet that was a gift. I typically carry my wallet in my front pocket so needed a smaller and less bulky option. This worked well for a while, but is getting worn out from use.

What do you use? Post Links if you can.

I have a coach black leather wallet right now...but I want to switch to a thinner wallet. Something for one or two cards and some bills.

I've been using a Tanner Goods cardholder as a wallet for a few years now. Really well made and durables, plus it is a bit different.

They have changed the design slightly since I bought mine, but they serve the same purpose. Here is a pic form the site:

I have a coach check book I liberated from my GF and my wallet is Joseph Abboud, I replaced my Prada wallet two years ago. I tend to put too much crap in my wallets and they wear out fast. So far the Joseph Abboud has not shown any wear but I also thinned out the contents. I change wallets when I wear a suit. I have a bill fold that fits better in the inside breast pocket of a sport coat/suit. I don't remember who makes it I have had it for many years but I do remember I bought it at a shop on Newbury St right after I bought a suit at Louis Boston and the salesman it recommended to me that a wallet make the suit droop. I didn't like what they had so I went on a hunt. LOL

About the time my wallet starts getting wore out, I get one for Christmas. I have only bought one once or twice in my life. I prefer a tri-fold. I think they come from JC Penney most of the time.

Currently have a Calvin Klein leather and material wallet but will be buying one of these this week.

Saddleback leather company .
They make all types of high quality leather goods.
I've read tons of reviews about these wallets and the consensus is one of the best wallets out there.

Super thick leather, pigskin lining.
$50 for medium sized.

I used a ripstop military camo wallet for years until it was stolen by a pick pocket at the Vatican last year.

I'm as serious as a heart attack, LOL.

PS: Luckily I had everything except one CC in a money belt. I called Chase within an hour and they had already charged $10K on the MoFo.

I also keep my wallet in my front pocket, so this is the one that I use, is very compact, holds everythin i need and does not bulge up. picked up at Coach's outlet store for men for $39.99 i have the black one, but they offer lots of varieties.

I had my wallet in a cargo pocket because the day before I had met an American on the subway that had his stolen from his front pocket.

LOL

I also recently bought a wallet from Saddleback. Probably the last wallet I'll ever need.

I use the Bleeker Compact ID Wallet. It has a removable inset so I can put extra things in if needed, but then its more bulky, or I can leave it out and have a slim profile.
Unfortunately, Coach doesn't have it on a single web page, but if you go to the one below, about mid-way down is the Compact ID Wallet section, on my browser the Compact ID Wallets are just about the big picture of one.
http://www.coach.com/online/handbags...&LOC=LN#110874


I recommend it mostly for its sturdiness. I once went through several wallets in a year before I decided to stop being cheap, and I went Coach. ... Never went back.
