I need a new wallet

I've been looking for a new, thin wallet. I keep my wallet in my front pocket, so I like a small one. The one I currently use was originally a photo sleeve. It works great for what I need, except that I can't fit business cards in it (pain). And, aside from looking a bit ghetto with the elastic band (no I don't ride a KLR), it serves it's purpose well.

The wallet (yeah baby, I'm rich, yo!):



Keeping the bills folded and stuffed in that pocket actually works well.

The inside:



I keep credit cards on one side (aided with the elastic ) and receipts and stuff in the other.

I can keep it in my front pocket without a huge bulge (my manhood's giant bulge is enough).

Anyone here have a nice, thin wallet? Where did you get it?

I use the Levenger Card Wallet. Nice and simple and good quality.

I like their curve model, but it has too many pockets! Each pocket adds unnecessary width.

That's the one I have, and trust me, it's skinny!!!
It may add a little width, but it's MUCH thinner than any wallet I've used.
And I carry my wallet in my front pocket as well.

Feel your pain

I've been on a quest for the slimmest, most functional wallet for the past 16 years. I have a half a dozen in my desk drawer that were all better than the last. I finally found the best and plan on desisting with my hunt:

I don't use it for biz cards, but I do carry the following:

1 ATM card
1 personal & 1 company credit card
Drivers license
TWIC
2 CCW cards (plastic), 1 paper
cash.

With all this, the thickness is 9/16".

It's simply the best. I have several with a center slot like this, but no way to get the stuff out. Getting the contents out is always a chore.

The pull tab is the balls. Since the folded "height" of cash is less than that of the credit cards, the cash is not quite as easy to remove from the center. When pulled all the way out, the end of the cash is flush with the end of the wallet (slot). It is still a heck of a lot better to use than any of the others I've tried.

I could go on, but it would probably be better if you just watched the video again...

Will business cards fit, though? I glanced at the link you posted but haven't had time to look closely.

I once was banging a chick who i said i needed a new wallet. She brought me a money clip. I couldnt use it as i dont carry cash or have rolls of 100s to use a money clip with. She didnt see me after that for some reason
