What I got

Just FYI-- I wound up buying the saddleback leather medium bifold wallet just after that, based on the thread and a little more research, and I've been very happy with it do far. I think it's going to hold up very well.

I got my wallet from here

http://www.flowfold.com/category/billfolds

while the particular model I have is no longer being made they all use similar materials which are extremely resilient. I would recommend them to anyone.

they are made from reclaimed sails for all you hippies out there looking to save the environment.

Well made, seems to last forever, and small. Two thumbs up.

Well, the ol' moneyclip/card wallet was starting to show its age - not worn out or anything - and I was also starting to think of RFID protection. I wasn't really sure what I wanted, but I knew I still wanted to stay with a minimal wallet.

At company meetings a couple of weeks ago, one of the swag items tossed out to attendees was this - Stewart/Stand's stainless steel Driving Wallet. Made from stainless steel cloth and ballistic nylon cloth (the "fold"), this thing is nice! Just enough room for a few cards and a few bills, and the stainless steel cloth makes it naturally RFID protective.

I like it!

Here's one I saw last week on Kickstarter. Good looking product...They raised $86,000 in orders on the site.

I'm shocked. That really doesn't look very functional to me, no organization of anything. I suppose it's like carrying a basic moneyclip. Or a piece of cardboard and a rubber band. Oh well, to each their own.

Minimal is the idea. Lots of people carry a only few bucks, 3 or 4 cards and a drivers license in the front pocket. Thats the target market. Theres already plenty of options for the folks who require a traditional wallet with compartments for everything they own. Try a man purse

Hello,

I've been using this wallet that my good friends in Tokyo made. They are two brothers who ride BMW airheads and are really good leather craftsmen who go by the trade name of "The Yellow Brothers". You can see their web site here: http://www.yellowbros.com/collection/style/400003/

When this thread was started I also needed a new wallet. I spent a lot of time searching for a long (checkbook length) wallet to replace a junker I had bought. I picked up a Fossil and the nylon/satin lining was failing within weeks, so I kept looking.

Finally, I gave in and decided maybe I should check out other styles, I knew that tri-fold/bi-fold was out of the question as they hurt my back if I sit on them. I finally decided on a Saddleback ID wallet for $33 and haven't looked back. It forces me to not carry junk in my wallet and it fits in a shirt pocket easily. It holds every card I need to carry (which isn't many, one per slot) and a few bills. Looks and smells great and I can see why they guarantee them for life, very well built. I also got a checkbook app for my phone so I can more easily track debit card use and immediately toss receipts, this also cuts down on paper money carried of course.

Shortly after I bought it, I stumbled onto Col Littlejohn's stuff and if I did it again I might have went with their front pocket wallet first but not sure. I see no reason to switch though as this one works great.
