This my second Big Skinny; the leather cover is far more acceptable than the synthetic cover
This my second Big Skinny; the leather cover is far more acceptable than the synthetic cover.
My first was all thin synthetic (Nylon?), and it lasted for many, many years - until it started to fall apart. Even then, I gave it up reluctantly, because every other wallet would have trouble fitting in my pocket with all the stuff I needed to put into it!
This time, I decided to go for the Leather Hybrid Bifold Wallet, and it seems to have the same relatively thin size, the same capaciousness for cards and $, but with a far more attractive look and a sturdier feel. I'm actually proud to pull it out in public now: it's beautiful and stylish. And most people would have no concept of how much I've slid into it.
And I do mean "slid into it": I had an interim wallet that wasn't a Big Skinny (and therefor much larger and more awkward) whose pockets always seemed too small for my cards - even a single card didn't readily "slide into it". Yet, with Big Skinny, the cards go in easily, and stay in there until I want to withdraw it. Magic? Or just good, thoughtful design, coupled with excellent manufacturing and materials.
Anyhow, I looked all around for a cheaper, "just as good" wallet, and I failed. It's worth the money!!
