my pick is the classic small zip wallet by Comme des Garcons (more colors here). stylish, functional, and the price is right.
i bought the small zip last year after realizing that i needed a compact wallet for errands and special occasions. it holds ID, 2-3 credit cards, cash, and a little change (if you're a bare essentials kind of person, you could definitely just use this as your 'full size'/everyday wallet). it fits perfectly inside a small clutch or handbag, and the slim profile means it doesn't add any extra bulk.
longtime readers know that my love of CdG wallets goes way back. one of the first things i ever splurged on was this embossed CdG french wallet in 2007. after 7+ years of almost daily wear and tear, the leather and zipper are still in excellent condition (save for the small leather zipper pull tab that has worn down).
what do you think /do you have a CdG wallet?
