    Here's the link for the comparison of All-Ett wallet sizes:
    http://www.all-ett.com/popups/compare.html

    Can someone post an exact size for the Fossil wallet?

    I have the All-Ett European leather wallet - now called the Sports. But the Fossil wallet looks good. My European leather wallet that I bought several months ago has slightly smaller dimensions than those posted as the Sports leather wallet. My dimensions: 3 1/16''x 3 11/16".

    (There are 2 small slots above the credit card slots in the Sports wallet. I put a small Swiss army knife pen in one of them as a backup pen. You could put other similar objects in there as well.)

    Thanks for the link!


    Here is what the OP posted about the Fossil Wallet size. Converted to inches is 3.74 x 2.75. On the fossil website they do not give the size of the black wallet, but they list a similar Brown Wallet as 3 x 4. I am not sure, but they look like the same wallet. I wish Fossil listed a size on the black one so I could know for sure :(

    I just ordered the Brown Fossil Wallet so when it comes in I will give an actual measurement and see if it is the same as the Black one

    sounds good! Keep us posted!

    I should have ordered two of the small black Bi-fold wallets because of the free overnight shipping.

    You never know when something like this will go bad.

    Take care

    No, the Slimmy is not a bifold. I have used a Slimmy for almost two years now and I think it's the best front-pocket minimalist wallet out there. It's basically a file-folder organizer with three (3) slots. It is open on the top and along one side. I carry 2 credit cards and a driver's license in the middle slot, my employee ID (and receipts) in one of the outer slots, and cash in the other outer slot. If you try use it routinely in a back pocket carry, it probably won't work for you, as things may work their way out of the side or top of the Slimmy as you sit on it.

    I also like business card wallets. I found a Buxton on clearance for 3.99 at a office supply and there is no going back. It is small light with plenty of room. I carry my DL, medical card, ATM/credit cards, band aids, Ikea paper tape measure, dental floss bow with extra room to spare. I carry my paper money on a Gerber money clip/utility knife but you can carry cash in the wallet.

    So i got my All-Ett sport wallet in today! I am very satisfied with the size and thickness. After the thickness of the Fossil got me by surprise I got the Spinaker material. My only real concern is how well it will hold up. Anyone know?

    This is what I've been using for the last 2 years or so. Holds 2 credit cards, DL, insurance card, and a few miscellaneous punch cards inside. Outside I like to tri-fold my bills so they're all within the profile of the case but you could fit more with a single fold.

    +1 for the slimmy front wallet. I have the one with the ID and I don't think I'll go to another wallet again.
