^I gave my hubby the one in the upper picture in ebano. I hate to sound negative but he uses it only to make me happy. It's very bulky compared to the Coach he had. It also has not maintained its shape very well. He carries it in his back pocket and spends a good part of his day on his feet, not sitting down. The corners have curled. The overall look is that of a very worn wallet, not one that's only a year old. I'm sure others here have had better experiences. I hope they see your post and weigh in.

The only downside with the zip wallet is one side just has a coin compartment. I'd buy one in a heartbeat if they made a zip wallet with CC slots on both sides. I was told by the SA that they don't make them that way, though.

I'm sorry to hear that. :( I was considering that wallet as a gift for my boyfriend.

EBano = brown
nero = black
nappa = lambskin
most mens wallets are made of nappa
but they do some in other leathers besides nappa
the stiffer leathers will probably hold their shape better than the nappa

The wallet in the bottom photo is a great choice, it comes down to personal preference in the design in the front of the wallet. I prefer this one as its intrecciato all around. The leather feels great once it you break into it.

all good, just make sure apply some protector or preserver once a month to keep it in good condition
