What makes the best slim leather wallet?
The best slim leather wallet is slender, doesn’t way too much, and is easy to get out of your pocket. But style also has to come into account when buying an accessory you could have for years.

This type of leather naturally forms a patina over time, giving the distinct character of lived-in leather.
Which pocket should I hold my wallet in?
