I’m really picky when it comes to buying new wallets. I don’t carry many cards and, much like the Queen of England, I rarely carry cash, so I hate anything that unnecessarily puts a big bulge in my back pocket.
With the Slim Wallet from Danny P, I’ve found a beautiful leather billfold that carries up to eight cards and a fistful of notes without ever getting too bulky.
Handmade out of high-quality Italian leather, the Slim Wallet is soft and supple and incredibly good-looking. I chose the brown “cognac” model, which has blue insides that deliver a somewhat striking contrast to the quiet exterior. The two colors work wonderfully well together to provide the Slim Wallet with its own unique look.
Thanks to that soft leather and the surprisingly lightweight design, the Slim Wallet is immensely comfortable in your pocket. So comfortable, in fact, that you’ll quickly forget it’s even there. I filled mine with as much as I could cram into it, and even though it got slightly fatter, it still slipped nicely into my pockets — even in the tighter pants I sometimes wear out at weekends.
The Slim Wallet’s excellent design means that even if you fill it, it never gets too fat. There’s space for eight cards, two pockets for additional business cards and IDs, and a generous slot for paper money. If you’re a receipt hoarder or you happen to have dozens of cards, you may have to streamline a little bit, but there’s plenty of space here if you need it.
What’s more, the Slim Wallet won’t just accommodate U.S. dollars, but also taller notes like British pounds and euros. For those who like numbers, it measures 4.69 inches (119mm) wide by 3.54 inches (90mm) tall when it’s closed.
I’ve been using Danny P products for a while now — I had both the wallet case and the regular case for iPhone 5s, and I’m using a gorgeous leather MacBook Air sleeve (review coming soon) — and I’ve always been hugely impressed by their design and build quality. You have to spend extra for these items, but it’s well worth it.
With the Slim Wallet, you get a stunning product that suits almost any style, whether you’re suited and booted for the office or heading out for some milk in an old pair of jeans. It’s built to last: The more you use it and the more worn it becomes, the more character it has and the better it looks.
The Slim Wallet’s priced at $109, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who’s on the hunt for a fancy leather billfold with plenty of space that never gets too chunky. It’s also available in black and a darker “tobacco” brown, and you can order yours now from the Danny P website.
