Rated 3 out of 5 by Larry The Weathered Truth
My issue with this particular product is that the color and texture of it is nothing like the image presented online. The image here presents a rustic, weathered, cognac look with charm & character when all of these characters are missing from the actual card holder. In reality, you get a chocolate-brown card holder strikingly similar to the leather billfold only without the fold. From a functionality standpoint, it appears the card holder will do the trick which is why I still plan on putting it good use nonetheless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ryan Good quality, but needs work
Materially, the leather and stitching on this card holder is great. However, I have three major complaints.
First, the fit is incredibly tight. So much so that if I want to slide cash inside, I have to remove several cards and cram the cash inside before replacing the cards. Often, this takes several tries -- because of the tight fit the outer bill often catches and folds up so I have to pull out the cash, realign the bills and try again.
Secondly, because you can only fit one card per slot, the wallet becomes really thick with only a couple cards in place.
Third, you can't tell from the photos (or at least I couldn't tell when I ordered it), but this card holder is two sided. This means lots of extra material on the backside contributing to girth. This would be a much more solid product if it was single-sided.
Certainly not bad for the price, but I'm switching back to my smaller card holder after only a week using this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcopolo Great Leather Card Holder
I received the card holder less than three weeks ago, and I have no regrets about purchasing it. The leather is durable and solid; the color is true to the picture from JCrew's website. The only issue I have is if you try to place cards, license, and other things in the slots at once, it makes it a little difficult to put cash in the middle of the wallet pocket. Overall, great wallet. I do not miss my conventional wallet at all. Great buy.

Tired of your pants bulging in all the wrong places? This little card carrier takes care of that for you! You can even slip a few bills into the pocket and you're ready to go.
Seriously, though, my husband loved it.

This is a replacement for a much-loved card holder (also J.Crew) that I've had for years. This one is the perfect size, and the leather is soft but resilient. It carries everything I need for everyday situations, and it doesn't feel like a brick in pants/ coat pocket.
