I’ve got a bog standard leather wallet in black boasting a 10 card capacity and a see through section to view the mug shot on my driving licence :laughing:

It’s years old so might go for an upgrade depending on any recommendations I see posted on here.

I have seen the ridge wallet but never given it a try as i remember having a off-brand one and it destroyed by embossed cards.
I also switch between the Misc Goods Co. flap wallet Version 3. I love it so much, it patinas well but sometimes i like to swap with other wallet i have in my collection.

That’s interesting as I haven’t had a problem with my ridge, and I’ve had Curve metal, Crypto.com red metal card and Revolut metal cards together. I do prefer some weight on my wallet so I know its there. Just don’t ask haha.

You are covered by a lifetime warranty on the ridge. :+1:

I used to have the Bellroy Card Sleeve wallet years ago but, it did my head in with the pull tag haha.

I’ve had this wallet for over 20 years, and yes it has seen better days, but no matter how many others I try, I still seem to go back to this trusty old one.

At the moment I’m using a wallet by Casmonal which is fairly similar to the original Trove wallet but was a bit cheaper and uses some different materials. But I’ve just ordered a handmade leather wallet from Benjamin Bott Design. It’s called the Double Wren, is a three-pocket design with two different pieces of leather interlinking. I’m having mine done bespoke with a different leather combination and thread to this, but you can get an idea of the style from these images.


As a side note for anyone considering a new wallet, the youtube channel Walletopia is a really good resource for wallet reviews where you can see a physical demonstration of the wallet in use.

That’s really nice. Very similar to my handmade wallet from Misc Goods Co.

There’s a really nice handmade wallet I have my eyes on from Open Sea Lather Co.

That’s a great design and a really nice looking wallet. Isn’t this the guy who’s in the navy and then makes wallets when he not on duty? That’s pretty cool.

Yes. He Sure is :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

You get to mix and match your leather choices and choose your own colour thread. It’s so unique and handmade. There’s nothing like it :eyes:

I’m curious, having never used a flap wallet before, what the experience is like. I’ve always assumed that the flap may be a little annoying in use, and get caught when you’re shoving it into a jeans pocket etc. Since you already have a flap wallet, and are considering another, I guess that never been an issue for you?

I recently tried swapping my Misc Goods Co flap wallet for a card holder and went straight back. It’s so easy to open and close.

In terms of cards. Mine can hold up to 15 cards but I only carry 3. I have my bank card at the front and I have my id in the middle and credit at the back so it’s really easy to get cards out.

I find opening snd closing it really easy and you get used to it too. I can actually do it one handed now :laughing:

I really like that Gun Deck Quickdraw and it seems reasonably priced for a handmade wallet with all the different options available.

I think I’m going to buy the gun deck QuickDraw next

So I’ll jump on the bandwagon but I’m rather boring and functional in the wallet department :wink:

I always use slim form factor cases, often for business cards. This is the current setup which was a business card holder gifted by a tech firm.

It holds all the cards and IDs I need, except if I am travelling internationally then I often need space for a few more.

So I’m transitioning to a wallet I thankfully received for Christmas 2019! It has a slide bar to push the cards out, but you need to pull a few out to find what you want usually.

I usually carry my wallet in my back pocket and tend to sit down on it, so something metallic like these two is always ideal.

Ah Akielo. I miss that mechanism. Definitely helped when I had only a couple of cards. Now a days I usually have 8+ cards and certainly wouldn’t trust curve to hold my cards… :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:

Yeah I’m carrying 5 bank cards, ID, office access, and some business cards and it’s all fitting nicely for now.

When I move to the new one I could probably carry 2 other ID cards I sometimes use but I’m considering buying a travel wallet for some of those and trying to leave them at home when not travelling.

I’ve done the whole Curve only thing but it only takes a processor to go offline and you’re screwed getting home or paying for dinner.
