was in neither of them colours btw.

How many cards can fit in those slots?

You can fit about 5 cards in each side with not much difficulty, although it does thicken the wallet considerably.

I bought the camo version of this a couple of months ago, and its great. Its a tight fit for UK Sterling notes, but apart from that I love it.

Lost my wallet at weekend, want a slim leather bi-fold, no strap or poppers or any of that kind of thing. Most I look at seem to be really bulky looking. Any recomendations?

Corter wallets are excellent quality and priced well:

I have the natural classic bifold.

They will mark down and shipping was very reasonable - around $15 if I remember correctly.

Only issue you may find is that it takes a bit of use to break the leather in, so it will take a month or so to get it to lie closed and get the slim profile you want.

Even then corter leather is usually so thick I doubt it will ever be slim. Looks quite substantial from the site pics too.

I swapped my bi-fold for one of these, and much prefer it if you're looking for a slim wallet

Had one of those il bussetos and all the lining ripped out after less than 3 months, disappointing.

Muji have got their made by Il Bussetto wallets back in (Covent Garden)
Black and dark brown.
Can't remember price, something like £35-40, amazing value.

Only pic I can find online is of the natural one:

Coin pockets in wallets are really effeminate.

What do you do with your change then? Do a noble and give it back to the cashier?

put it in your fucking pocket/coin pocket

coins = uneven distribution of pressure when the wallet is in your back pocket = cracked cards
