    Sitting at a bar having a beer and my friend pulls the Allett out and I say what is that. He said an Allett and its the slimmest wallet ever. So we transfer all my stuff from my wallet to his Allett and wallah it was true. I ordered one for me and one for our other friend sitting there and we could not be happier. We go to play golf the next day and a member of our golf group sees our Allett and says whats that. We tell him its the slimmest wallet made. He tried it and agreed. On his way to Texas he stops at a store in Birmingham, Ala and picks one up. We all are very happy with our Allett. The Allett almost sells itself. Good job. Wish we had a store closer to Myrtle Beach, SC. Because of the thousands of visitors in our location the Allett would sell like hot cakes.

    It was the answer to a problem has dogged me for years…24 cards, cash and receipts. There is nothing on the market that works as well and avoids the huge bulge in your suit breast pocket or back pocket. Buy this!

    I’m into my second wallet, the Slim Original style. First was cloth (I wore it out), second leather — prefer the leather, but solely on style points, both work great. I like the difference in depth between bills section and receipts section, makes it easy to keep separate. The initial transition from “regular” wallet to All-ett was a learning experience in that I found that a lot of stuff I had carried for years in my wallet was really not necessary — that really helped to skinny things up. And I still tote around 10 plastic cards, 6 business cards, and 8 misc. thinner items. The wallet is thin enough that I no longer carry it in my hip pocket, but rather in a front pocket, which is much more secure (and also helps with back problems — which tells you how thick my old wallet was). This is an excellent product, and I’ll be ordering my third as soon as my leather one wears out (stitching starting to go a little bit).

    Bought my first wallet back in 2008 after a review caught my attention and I could not be happier. The only issues I had with this version was constantly thinking that I did not have my wallet on me due to the size difference from my previous wallet, and with the occasional card slipping out of the wallet due to the sail material. I bought the rip-stop version of this wallet back in 2010/11 (wish this was still an option) and could not be any happier. This version I feel is the ideal version due to the cards not slipping out at all and still retaining the slim profile of the original.

    It is thin. When I first got it I was panicking as I thought I’d lost it. Nope, just a big change from my last wallet . Although they don’t tell you this there is a secret compartment inside the leather wallet, you can easily hide bank notes in it.

    I’ve owned the same All-ett slim wallet model for many years now. My sons both use the same model, as do many of my friends – mostly as a result of my personal recommendation. It has been a durable and constant companion, providing the slimmest possible profile for the 20+ cards I carry daily, and has worked admirably. Alas, good things don’t last forever, so after more than a dozen years, I finally have to replace the dog-eared, well worn wallet, with another just like it – no other product on the market even comes close. What wore out, was not the wallet, per se, but the stitching. I could probably get a few more years of if it, but at more than a decade of constant use, I’d say that the durability was more than a far bargain! Headed down the same path again – can’t argue with perfection 🙂

    My younger son’s wallet had an issue with the stitching (it was new at the time), and customer server came through, replacing it immediately, and without qualm. Great people!

    I own the Ultra Slim Sport wallet and absolutely love it. It’s ridiculously thin, the nylon is sporty and functional and I carry it everywhere. That said, sometimes I travel and want something a little bigger and a little more functional… meaning a wallet I can collect business cards in, carry my own, but also carry all my credit cards, gift cards, insurance cards, license and more. And still carry bills, and collect receipts for expense reports, etc. So I ordered this… the Leather Original, to give me a second wallet to use for traveling and the like. In my opinion, this wallet is as perfect as the Ultra Slim Sport… while adding more functionality and style. Yes, the leather makes it a tiny bit thicker than the Ultra Slim Sport… but even using the word “thick” with this wallet seems comical. It’s beautifully thin and the leather is downright elegant. I divide my credit cards and license and all between the two bottom card pockets. In the upper right card pocket, I keep a hefty supply of business cards, and in the upper left, I collect them from those I meet. There are two pockets in the bill area… one “half depth” and one the depth of the wallet. I keep money in the former and use the deep pocket for receipts, tidbits of paper I need to carry… whatever. It’s a mini workhorse of a wallet… and yet it does all of this while remaining unbelievably thin (and I’m crazy picky about thinness). I’ve been searching for thin wallets forever… and had honestly started to think companies that advertise thin wallets were all comfortable with the same advertising approach: call thick wallets, thin… and see what the customer thinks. But Allett has shown me there is at least ONE company out there that means thin when they say it. I am a fan. On top of all of this… their customer service is simply phenomenal.

    Love this wallet. Over the years I’ve bought several Alletts, the only reason being that the dog chewed them up. Otherwise no complaints about durability. It lets me laugh at friends who have wallets that are two inches thick (I kid you not). I also have an Allett business card case and a passport case.

    I’ve used this wallet as my daily now for over 5 years and its still going strong, looks and works as intended. But its a shame because I’ve got a couple of Mont Blanc Meisterstuck wallets given to me that costs 30 to 40 times more and they get left in the drawer as they feel like I have a balloon in my pocket compared to this wallet. Function wins over branded fashion.

    I am a simple old man who has only had 3 wallets in my lifetime. All 3 have been about the same size as this Classic Leather Original but recently when the 3rd one wore out, I had to go back to my second old one to replace it as I could NOT find a wallet that was decent quality leather, thin and would carry about 12 plastic cards, in a safe, yet comfortable format. I dislike tri-folds, bi-folds with flaps, bi-folds that stack the plastic cards inside so that it bulks the wallet out, or wallets so lacking in pocket size the cash money pops out a bit – most of us use cards now anyway but it is still nice to be able to carry paper money when necessary and without it spilling out of the wallet when using your debit card or credit card. This wallet is exactly as advertised – THIN – GREAT FOR SUIT JACKETS, DRESS SHIRT FRONT POCKET when needed, REAR PANT POCKETS when needed, JEAN PANTS REAR POCKETS when needed, VEST POCKETS when needed, and OUTERWEAR POCKETS when needed. My passport can be carried inside simply folded in, and there is no plastic ID window that eventually fades or cracks or falls out or needed additional leather or stitching to hold it over time. I wanted leather on the outside because I am still a “bit” conscious of appearance BUT I LOVE the use of rip-stop nylon inside; BEAUTIFUL design. Admittedly, the nylon/nylon version might have been lighter and the leather/leather version might have been elegant when opened BUT the combination of exterior leather – NAPPA – soft, flexible, and great feeling along with the nylon – RIP-STOP quality with the small grip in each card holder to prevent cards from slipping out or moving is ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING.. I could NOT find a better wallet – PERIOD. Did I mention it was THIN. GREAT wallet. Thanks!

    I received my wallet today. I am certainly happy with my purchase. My search for the best wallet on the planet is over! I have tried every type of wallet made seaarching for the right one to carry all my stuff in the slimest possible fashion. This is better than any bifold, trifold, moneyclip type, both magnetic and clip type. Front poket, rear pocket, breast pocked etc. I have 16 carrds in it as in drivers license, health care cards, crdeit cards, club cards and still have room for more! The ribber grip technology is fantastic. I have used nylon wallets in the past but the cards will fall out if not careful. Finally I am pleased to be using a wallet that is made in the USA. The price point is excellent. My next puchase will be the all nylon model for my sports and fishing trips. I love the look of the leather for business but want a blue nylon. Thank you for your detailed on line desciptions and the quaility of your servie and product. I’m 62 yearrs old and could not be happier with my purchase! Thanks, Ed from Indiana

    My old wallet was quickly becoming a Costanza wallet and would kill my sciatic nerve if I even sat on it for a few minutes so I looked around online for reviews on slim wallets. I came across this one as consistently highly recommended so I ordered it. Man, what a huge difference! Definitely give it 4.75 (out of 5) stars. Only minor negatives: a clear card holding slot under which to place my Drivers License and slightly less tight card holding slots (I am however cramming the 4 slots full). Best $35 I’ve spent in a long time. Love it so much I can’t wait to buy more to give as gifts. There is even a women’s counterpart in a tan leather that I plan on buying for my wife.

    I bought my first one in 2006. I ruined and replaced it in 2008. Eight years later, I’m back for another one. There isn’t a better thin wallet made, and unless you buy exotic leathers there’s not a better wallet made. Period.

  14. Rated 4 out of 5

    To be perfect (for me) it needs to be just a bit taller. Bills overlap the lower level cards, creating a centre bump. If the bills were up a little, in line with the upper level cards but no lower, the bump would be eliminated. Mine’s a couple years old so its possible this adjustment in design has since been made.

    I did a bit of research on companies making slim wallets and I’m very glad that I purchased the classic leather original wallet. While removing the contents from my bulky bifold wallet I wasn’t sure how they would fit in the classic leather wallet. Everything fits perfectly and the wallet is still incredibly slim. The wallet fits comfortably in both the front and back pockets of my jeans and I don’t even notice it’s in my pocket. Great job on the wallet! Now if you could make the RFID Original Wallet in brown leather I’ll be all set.

    Many thanks for this wallet. It won’t take£50 notes but as all in the UK know that is not a problem. This wallet is thin and feels great. It looks like a smart leather notebook and swallows credit cards receipts and banknotes. I am very pleased!

    I hate thick wallets, so I bought one of the original sail-cloth wallets and used it for years. I replaced it with an All-ett nylon wallet, but it only held credit cards securely if there were enough to stretch the fabric. I’ve lived with my leather original for several years now. Everything is secure in it. It is thin enough (though not as thin as a nylon wallet). The deep receipt pocket is great for receipts and foreign currency. My only issue is the size. It doesn’t fit deeply enough in my jeans pocket. I’ve ordered a nylon sport wallet to carry in my front pocket.

    I’ve had this wallet so long that I cannot remember when I got it. It must be over 5 years and still going strong. I carry my wallet in a front pocket so thin is important — you cannot get thinner than this. I originally had one of their nylon ones, but prefer leather even though it is slightly thicker. I’m sure I’ve had more than 24 cards and other junk in it. I recently cut back to 12.

    I’ve had this puppy for probably more than a year and I love it. Father’s day is coming up soon, so I’m here buying one for pops, cause he always has a brick in his pocket.

    I started taking out cards and I had almost given up on finding a thin wallet. Then it dawned on me that there has to be a wallet with 2 cards side by side, (1/2 as thick) instead of one card on top of the other. Bingo! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. The only suggested modification is to include a windowed sleeve on the inside for a medical directive or other important document that you want to be displayed. It could be done by creating a windowed sleeve going across the outside of two of the pockets. (If pictures could be uploaded, it’s be easier to understand) Other than this, this wallet is absolutely perfect in every way and worthy of 6 stars. Superb craftsmanship and design. Impossible for cards to fall out due to the unique design, as well as the ribbed texture on the inside of the pockets. Expect this to last a long time. Wouldn’t surprise me if this lasts 10+ years. For size comparisons, the outside dimensions are identical to a US Passport. As for thickness, my wallet has 16 cards in it plus a few dollar bills; it’s about twice as thick as a passport. Highly recommend this. Only complaint is that I went 40+ years with a brick in my britches. One cheek is deformed, and my pants are worn out.

    Thank goodness I finally got rid of my old “George Costanza” wallet for this one. I have used it every day for about 4 years and it has held up beautifully. I even notice a great reduction in back and hip pain due to the improved size & shape,of this one. While I bought mine at the LA County Fair, I has sent several friends to this website. I highly recommend this wallet and I WILL buy another when this one wears out.

    I am very happy with the quality, look and feel of the product and with the wonderful service I received from Allett. It is very supple and thin and my cards fit perfectly. The employee whom I contacted before buying, elaborately informed me and even measured the space for banknotes and created a mock-note to make sure my country’s currency fit in it. Once more, I am very satisfied with the product and the service and can totally recommend both the wallet and All-ett as a company!

  23. Rated 5 out of 5

    The wallet as the other reviews state here is excellent if you’re looking to occupy as little space as possible in your pocket with many cards. The leather looks amazing and is soft to the touch. However exceeding the quality of the wallet is the excellent level of customer service these guys provide, to me that plays an even more important role than the product. Definitely worth the purchase!

    Just ordered my 2nd Classic Leather wallet because it was on sale and my 1st one will probably need to be replaced soon–after 5 ½ years of being overstuffed with 26 plastic cards and 13 business cards, lots of receipts, and a some cash. Couldn’t be happier with this wallet. Previously, I’d had two consecutive nylon wallets, which I liked, but lasted 2 – 2 ½ years each.

  25. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’ve had bifolds and trifolds and never found one a liked very much. I’ve been carrying the leather original for 4 years now and it still works great. Easily the best wallet I’ve ever owned and I’ll buy another if this one ever wears out.

  26. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’ve gone through many wallets, never being satisfied with the design — until I bought this one. It’s the perfect combination of ease of use, thinness, and — with the leather exterior — quality feel. I’ve purchased several of these — the only reason I’ve had to replace them is because my dog loves to chew them!

    Thinnest, best wallet ever. I bought the original nylon wallet ages ago and loved it but my wife thought it wasn’t “nice” enough for business or more formal occasions and I had to agree. This one is the same awesome design but with a leather exterior. I put 6-9 ID/credit cards in it, plus 8 business cards, plus 10-20 US individual bills, and receipts and business cards I pick up from meetings etc. And it’s still very thin and comfortable. Did I say it’s thin even when full? Well it is. Great wallet. Highly recommended.

    I have been using this Classic Leather Original wallet now for close to 1 year. It DOES hold up to 24 cards (credit cards, driver’s license, health insurance cards, etc.). They cannot fall out due to the unique design. Even with a full load of cards the design also allows for it to be thinner than any other wallet I have ever seen. There are two pockets for currency or papers or odd-sized items. The leather is of good quality and very soft. I am purchasing another for a Christmas gift today!
