i love the zippy wallet!
I sold one and regret it so much and bought it again within a month!
I gave the French wallet a try for a week but it was just too small for me.

zcw is my all time favorite. i have been using mine nonstop for over 2 years. it still looks new and it transitions from large to small purses. the perfect wallet. i also own the insolite but i never use it. don't get me wrong, the mc insolite is beautiful. the insolite is just too large for me. also, i don't like the fact that when it is open, one side has the cards upside down and i am worried one could fall out, if that makes sense. best of luck with your decision. a lot of members swear by their insolites so it is a very personal choice.

Anyone know how many credit card slots in the Empreinte Secret and what colors? It may rule itself out before I even bother having my SA find it for me...

And y'all are really making the case for the ZCW here!!!

secret long holds 10, same as the ZCW. i sold my infini secret long for the ZCW in DE. i just love the size much better for a wallet that lays flat. like another poster said..i can transition the wallet into my smaller purse without the hassle of switching. i owed the black MC insolite at one point...it was too big and i didn't like the the credit card slots facing the opposite of each other.

BTW the zippy fits a checkbook or passport if u need it for that reason. GL!

I do not own an Insolite Wallet, but I love my ZCW. My wallet of choice is the Zippy in all colors, especially the Multicolor! But since you don't like the accordion style I would suggest the ZCW. To be honest, even though it's smaller, the ZCW holds everything my Zippy's do! I was amazed.

The Insolite just looks so big. For one thing I don't carry a check book, so for me, there's just no need for such a large wallet.

I hope you can go and try them both. That's the very best way to get what you will love for sure! :yes:

Oh I am definitely going to visit tonight to do some purchasing. I was trying to wait until there was a LITTLE more in the piggy bank, but I know that darn price increase is coming and I will be SO mad at paying more for my new bags!

I really think the only reason I want Insolite so much is the white multicolore mono pattern. I'm just not a fan of brown for the ZCW for canvas and the Epi ones are not in colors I'd choose. I may just hold off for spring on a wallet, certainly don't NEED one right now, just love all my accessories to match!

We shall just have to see what I think in store, I'm debating waiting in the hopes that the black/red mono print seen in the Spring 2015 show will come to some of the SLG items. THAT would be awesome...
