well, first off...I can't imagine life without my Big Skinny Metro! I've bought 4...maybe 5 of them now. I get a couple years out of them before they wear out.
The new one had a couple issues:
1. It's bigger. I don't miss the divided bill pocket or the key holder being gone...but it's sewn BIGGER than the old wallet - by a 1/4" on all sides..it's not the same size and it doesn't fit as well into the pockets. Especially the pockets I've sewn / hemmed to fit the older versions.
2. The color. My wife nagged me for 2 weeks before i gave up. She called it "gold" and a "girls color" and "you can't pull that out in front of clients"...and I went back to an older black one. I guess I should have stayed with the black! lol.
Anyway - I hope the black ones are still small...the smaller size is one of the best parts!
overall, I still love my Big Skinny Metro (even if I'm using one that should be duct taped right now, lol.
Merchant Response:Hi john, Thank you for your feedback! Haha gold?? Sounds like you may have gotten one of our extremely old ones, perhaps the Toffee color? don't worry all the new ones are the exact dimensions you prefer. Hope this helps! Have a great day! BigSkinny
