I had a Valextra that was a perfect size but got beaten to hell over about 10 years. Contacted them about recrafting it but they don't (and also don't have a similar replacement).
I've always preferred slimmer wallets vs. larger ones with tons of credit card slots. I currently use a Goyard St. Pierre but am traveling at the moment with just a cardholder and am liking it.

I may pick up one of those FLP cardholders to try out. 215 EUR shipped to the US it looks like with a variety of colors to choose from. Not bad...

I wonder how the availability of purchasing online is going to work out for the brand.

I like small wallets but a little more than a 4 card holder..
Mine still looks brand new after a year of hard use!

Wallets are like watches, you need the right one for the occasion or mood. I have to say that my Trayvax has become my go-to wallet though. The Goyards and Montblanc only come out occasionally now. It comes down to function more than anything else. Easy access to all of my cards and a couple of cash bills, customizable thickness depending on how many cards you need, all in a compact design thatís somewhat stylish.

This is my 6CC. It's a bit larger than a LV Pocket Organizer but I comfortably front pocket carry when traveling with out issues. My hands are 8" from wrist to tip of middle finger so I don't have giant hands either. The dimensions of mine may be different since this is not the "extended" version they offer now.

Thank you! I like that a lot, more than the newer version which has the ďspineĒ. I put my wallet in my back pocket so Iím a little concerned about the size.

It will be fine in your back pocket. I carry it both ways (situation depending) without issue. I have had it for a little over a year and it still looks brand new. I don't baby it at all either. You can easily email them and see if they still stock this style. They are always very responsive, may take a few days due to time zones, but purchase is easy. I bought mine before they had an online buying option and it was in my hands in 3 days.

I know its not LV or Goyard, but I recommend Smythson's and Aspinal of London. Have so far held up to the rigors of travelling and are more low key compared to LV, Gucci etc.

Sounds good. I emailed them and asked about the old model so hopefully I hear back on Monday. If not I think Iíll just order a blue 6cc and hope for the best.

Iíve had LV, Gucci, Versace and Goyard wallets but nothing has been as practical as my Waskerd. See link.

Well, I was hoping for an email response from FLP, but I should have known better I guess.
The French and their work hours do amaze me to be honest...oh well, maybe tomorrow.

I have contacted them last friday and Erwin replied immediately.
The email address from the first page on this thread works.

I received an email this morning. None of the older style are in stock so I ordered a blue 6cc; we’ll see how it looks!

Just received this Bottega Veneta a few days ago. The quality is really nice and leather is so soft. I wonder how long it will hold up though. In my experience, softer leather tends to wear off quickly. LV one below is not as soft and i have it for 6 years and it's still going strong.
