Has anyone found a nice iPhone 5 wallet/clutch? I know Michael Kors has one. I am disappointed b/c it doesn't look like Kate Spade and Cole Haan have updated theirs to fit the iphone 5. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I too am in need of an iPhone 5 wallet so hopefully we can help each other out :smile:

I had the Michael Kors wallet for my iPhone 4 and it was great besides one major flaw. I had the gold style and unfortunately the metallic leather they use isn't the sturdiest especially for everyday use. The leather kept peeling on the section where you slip your phone in. I took it to the store and they replaced it with a new one and sure enough, within a week the same thing happened and I ended up just glueing it down. I did love it though, I would just suggest getting a colored leather or even the ostrich or snakeskin since they seem like they'd hold up better.

Keep in mind when looking online that some pouches marketed for the iPhone 4 may also fit the 5. The 5 is 4.87" tall - so anything larger than that will work just fine.

Here's some that I found & really liked -

I'm trying to decide between these 3 in pink -

I have the 5 and the Tory Burch Robinson one but its a tight fit and you can't put a case on the phone. Its a cute wristlet wallet but I wouldn't recommend it unless the measurements are fixed. I tried the Coach legacy leather double accordion zip and that fits in there with tons of room to spare. I got the Tory Burch because I was sucker for that color.

I have the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Wingman wallet and although it is made for the iphone 4, I can still fit my iPhone 5 in the phone slot without a case. If I have a case on the iphone 5 I can fit it in the middle and still be able to comfortably close the wallet with other things in it. If I put my iphone 5 with a case in the middle, I then use the slot meant for the phone as a cash holder, or to keep my receipts. It works perfect.

Thanks. I am lucky to work near a nordstrom, so i think i'll go check some of the ones you mentioned in person. I did notice that some of the iphone wristlets, you mentioned are just iphone cases, w/out any wallet features. I would love a long wallet, so i don't have to fold up my dollars. I am hitting Macy's, Lord and Taylor and the apple store tomorrow, so i will keep you posted.

LV insolite wallet ftw!
The LV Insolite looks perfect, but there's no way i could afford it! I watched a video review on youtube, and I love the D ring so you could use a strap.

I am not one to buy "fake", but i would love something similar. Any thoughts? Under $300, at the very most. PreOwned is fine by me.

The things I love most are all preowned, including my cat!

Thanks everybody.

I found another one. Brahmin Riley. I am a big fan of Brahmin b/c I love moc croc and their's is spot on. Its bigger than the others I've found, 6.5 inches, and supposedly you can fit dollars without folding. I read somewhere that the Riley is a 3/4 wallet

I ordered it in caviar and heather to see which i like. I'l return one or both to the store and see if there are any full size wallets that hold an iPhone that i like better. I am always looking.

It is however I think I got the older version. I went to look at wallets again (I have a thing for wallets :P banned for now bc I got my zippy :biggrin:) and saw the new TB ones. They are longer now so I think they might fit better now. Give it a try :] couldn't do it cause I was with my 17 month old.

Decision made! I bought the Coach Double accordian wallet wristlet in the color carnelia which is kind of a deep coral. The front zip pocket is perfect for the iphone 5, or any smartphone, I suspect. Thanks for your help everyone. I am very happy with my purchase and am now banned from looking at wallets. I'd love to have the coach in more than one color but it would be way too much money. Not to mention the hassle of changing wallets all the time!

That is exactly the one I was going to suggest. Congrats and enjoy it!
