Long ones for sure, I hate having to rummage around in my wallet and I like to store receipts so I need enough space.

I like both, I use a compact wallet almost everyday but a long wallet traveling. Some long wallets are too big for some bags and that is why I would probably buy more compacts than long.

Then there is the zip-round, wrap-flap or top-open-only wallet styles. I only like zip round if I can't get a folding wrap-flap but I really don't like the long wallets that open across the top-only, like purses :shrugs:

I don't carry a lot of cards so an LV ZCP is perfect for me other than I sometimes have to carry an extra coin pouch because I get so many coins.

We are transitioning into 'plastic' bills here (Canada), I may have to change my wallet if they can't be folded easily. Right now it's only $100 bills and I never have any of those...

What about a compact wallet that is like a billfold? I.e. it has a bill pocket running the full length of the wallet when it's open, you put your bills in there unfolded but then fold the wallet to close it. Like this Comme des Garcons.

I prefer something in between. Longs too long for my tastes and compact is too small. I had an LV tresor for years and now have a BV continental.

I like long continental with a front compartment that can hold my bills and change and slots/compartments for credit cards, etc.

I used to like the wrap fold over wallets but I've grown fond of long wallets now. I carry too much stuff and it turns into a giant jelly roll.

I prefer the long wallets because I have so much stuff that I carry with me everyday, like cards, receipts, etc. Also, I think long wallets generally look better and chicer than smaller ones. When I use a small crossbody, I stick to compact wallets.

For everyday, I only use the long. I need at least 8 card slots (not just for 2-3 credit cards, but also driver's license, medical card, work id, gas card...), prefer more than one "bill" slot (in addition to $$, I like to keep appointment cards - even though I enter them into my calendar -as I've had issues with "challenged" appointments), and zippered coin compartment. Some version of a continental.

However, when I'm "going out" with a smaller purse, I prefer the smallest wallet I can manage (with just room for DL, one CC, and cash).
