^^ As for the material, Prada's saffiano leather is definitely more durable than Miu miu's shiny calf leather ;) (similar problems as with the bow bags, because it's the same type of leather... rather sensitive, loses shininess, possible cracks, dicoloration...).

We've already discussed the two wallets in the other thread :smile: (similar to your choices, see post #34): http://forum.purseblog.com/miu-miu/miu-miu-wallets-need-advices-688553-3.html


I have a black Miu miu wallet like in the picture, but with a zipper, I hardly ever use it and after a couple of uses it already looks older, less shiny... maybe I should put something on it (at the store SA told me I didn't have to, but I don't want the leather to crack :wondering).

On the other hand, Prada saffiano leather is great, very strong and less sensitive, it's almost impossible to scratch it :biggrin: The wallet in your picture seems the style which has also a coin compartment on the back, so it's a very usable wallet and you can organize your stuff nicely in it :smile:

Again, both wallets are really beautiful, but if you're looking for an everyday wallet, Prada is probably the better choice.

thanks dear for your detailed explanation!

but one thing now is, the card slots seem very little for the prada. I like the size thou. do u know of alternatives that are about the same size, not long wallets, with more card slots?

Hmmm, I don't know, maybe you should check the official Prada site and check all the wallets, maybe you'll find the right one...

I know there are 2 variations of the Prada wallet that you posted above - that one in your picture and this one which doesn't have the coin-compartment on the back, but inside the wallet... it has 8 card slots :smile:: http://store.prada.com/en/IT#!/en/IT/woman/wallets/tri-fold/1M0176_QWA_F0403

This one has 6 card slots, but it's only black colored: http://store.prada.com/en/IT#!/en/IT/woman/wallets/tri-fold/1M0176_QHH_F0632

I have the Prada in the long wallet style in the same colour (Rame) - I vote for Prada in the long style - I find that shorter wallet style is not enough for all my cards and other stuff (aka receipts and junk!) I tend to store in my wallet.

I've posted the pics here if you want to have a look as reference (I've got the coin wallet in the same range in front of the wallet: http://forum.purseblog.com/prada/my-first-pradas-711965.html

The Saffiano leather is pretty durable - I've accidentally dragged it against a pretty rough wall and there are no marks, thankfully!

Edit: Sorry I just realized you've already viewed the wallets in the other post :smile:

Hi girls, im planning to get a new bag soon, and im confused between miu miu coffer or chloe marcie. I really LOVE both bags, but can only choose one. which one would you guys recommend? I read through the net that the leather on miumiu's bags arent really durable at all, but the coffer is just tooooo pretty :sad:

I find the lamb skin coffer very durable and not so sensitive like the calf skin bags, but maybe you should start a new thread about your subject? This thread is for helping someone else to choose a wallet. Think more people would read a new thread :smile:
