Here’s the skinny on ultra-cool, ultra-thin wallets


What: Big Skinny Executive Wallet

How much: $25.95

Where is it: BigSkinny.net

I’ve searched for the perfect wallet since I began carrying a purse in junior high but have never found one that was exactly right.

I tend to shove wadded up cash, receipts and discount cards into my wallet, and within days, it’s a cluttered mess, and I can’t find my ATM card.

And no matter how big the wallet, I can never get the thing to close.

The Big Skinny wallet doesn’t look like the black-leather versions I normally buy.

I got the Executive style, made of an ultra-thin, nylon microfiber, in Fuchsia Pink (it also comes in Tuxedo Black, Cocktail Red and Smokey Teal), and though it’s not my typical color, I love it because it’s so easy to find in my kitchen-sink purse.

The wallet has thin, wider-than-normal pockets for credit cards and envelopes for cash and receipts, biz cards, etc., as well as a zippered compartment.

The entire contents of my 2-inch-thick original wallet — including change — fit inside with room to spare. Snaps actually hold the thing closed. The best part: the wallet is only three-eighths of an inch thick.

I’ve been using the Big Skinny for about a month and am proud to say that it hasn’t become unorganized. It’s a keeper.

Decision: Get it!


The Big Skinny Executive Wallet holds more than 20 credit cards, cash and change with no bulk.
