Minimalist is an understatement when it comes to the clamshell wallet by DPTR, which literally features a strip of fancy, Horween leather (with soft calf lining) and a braided elastic band. There are no pockets, no hidden compartments, no bells and whistles to add unnecessary bulk. Leather, elastic, done. This means you can basically stuff in as many cards and as much cash as the elastic will accommodate and shove it all in your front or back pocket for comfortable carry and easy access. – Buy It

The Saddleback wallet has pockets on both sides and is constructed from full-grain leather, lined with pigskin, and sewn with marine-grade thread. On one side, the Saddleback wallet has two pockets for credit cards. Once you break the wallet in, each pocket can hold up to five cards. Be careful, though. When you add a new card to a full-grain leather wallet, the pocket stretches and molds to fit the card. That means that if you want to go back to carrying fewer cards, the pocket will be loose and cards may fall out.
Meanwhile, where you live, work, and how you commute can make a big difference, too. Do you feel comfortable keeping your wallet in a back pocket, or do you worry about pickpockets?
