$30 is kinda expensive for this wallet, no? I bought one on Mass Drop just a few months ago for $20 shipped. In terms of the wallet itself, this is just "OK." The unfinished leather on the inside makes it harder to get cards in and out easily and you have to quarter fold bills to make them fit inaide. Neither of which makes the wallet easy to use at a checkout.

LOL maybe you should have got a bifold then? You ordered a minimalist wallet. I don't know what to tell you, $30 for a Wickett & Craig leather wallet is a steal, especially when I see time and time again this guy's stitching is the cleanest I've seen. I paid over $100 for mine, and had no problem after looking through other options (Hollows, Tanner, Corter, etc.) Plus when I was talking to him through email he's a chill, humble, down to earth guy doing his craft. I'm all for supporting that.

To put it in perspective, I paid $15 for an EZGO Slim wallet on Massdrop. It holds 10 cards which are easy to get in and out of the wallet, and has a strap that holds bills folded in half. It is MUCH easier to use than the Faler Brand wallets. The EZGO Slim is smaller when holding 10 cards and 10-15 bills than the Faler Brand wallet is empty.
Just because a wallet is "minimal" doesn't mean it shouldn't be easy to use.

How are you noting that the EZGO slim is easier and better? Have you used a faler brand one?

I have used a lot of minimal wallets including the Faler Brand, EZGO Slim, CNCH, Dollar Wallet, Dash & Dash 3.0, Sushi Wallet, Cleancut Wallet, Slimteq, NOSO and about a dozen other minimal wallets.
The EZGO is the easiest to use so far, followed by the Dash 3.0 Saffiano Leather wallet and then the CNCH.
The two problems with most of the minimal wallets I have used so far is that it is hard to get your cards and cash in and out of them when at a register. I don't want to be fumbling around with my stuff for 2-3 minutes holding up a line, I just want to pay and go. The EZGO is as quick as a normal fat wallet, holds a good amount of stuff and is still very small.
