FP is my favorite small LV wallet - Zippy is my favorite large wallet - and both are so gorgeous in Amarante, so I'm no help at all!! I'd base it on what size wallet would suit your needs and would probably get the Zippy for myself.
I have a Epi french purse. The french purse is very elegant. The difficult part is getting the bills in/out of the compartment. It is deeper than zippy, and very snug. The bill compartment for zippy is easier to access. Also the coins inside the coin compartment would come in contact with the metal frame. If the occasional noise would bother you, the coin compartment can also double as a card/receipt holder. I use a separate coin purse.
