(I know this review is long. to skip to what I think specifically about this wallet, start reading below the line of asterisks) I have several Royce Leather products now. All are very nice, well-made, and reasonably priced. I have been very happy with my RFID passport wallet, but recently I had been wanting to find a wallet replacement. I usually only carry a couple of cards, so I was looking for a small, compact bifold. My original wallet was a typical bifold (hinged or folded on the short dimension), but the card slots were horizontal, meaning you inserted the cards from the top down. With only a couple of cards, and as that wallet aged, the slots became looser, and sometimes when I would take the wallet out of my pants pocket, one of my cards would fly out of the slot and onto the ground. The first Royce wallet replacement I got was another bifold hinged on the short dimension, but the card slots were vertical, meaning you unfolded the wallet and inserted the card from the opening near the center fold of the wallet and pushed it horizontally left or right to fill either of the wallet's "wings". I thought this was what I was looking for because the only way the card could come out of the wallet is if you intentionally had it opened/unfolded. However, the only thing I ended up not liking about that wallet was the pocket for keeping bills was very shallow. The height of the wallet was not much more than the short dimension of a credit card, and US currency is a good bit taller than that. If you carefully lined up all of the bills and inserted them in the wallet, they would still peek out of the top of their slot. And if the bills were not exactly and carefully aligned, or if they were crowded, sometimes they would even be visible with the wallet folded closed. And don't even think about using it with Euros because the larger denominations are significantly taller than US currency. It's a very minor and trivial thing, I know, but it was something that bothered me enough to keep looking for another wallet. **************************************************************************************** Finally, I found this Royce wallet; it appeared to be just what I was looking for. This one is hinged on the long dimension, and there are 3 vertical card slots in each wing. The cards are still inserted starting from the center fold of the wallet and slid into the slot horizontally left or right, but now the cards are standing on their side (i.e. portrait instead of landscape.) This also means that the slot for currency is quite deep which pleases me greatly. Technically, the slot is also not as wide as the other wallet styles, but it is plenty adequate for US currency, and there is still well over 1/4" play leftover. The leather is smooth and very soft and more of a matte finish than shiny which I also like. It seems to be well-made like other Royce products. Overall, I'm very happy with this new wallet, and I'm thrilled I finally found the style I was looking for since it doesn't seem to be a very common one.
Quality made. Beautiful leather and simply a nice slim wallet. With the cards being put in from the side I find this a more secure way to store them since you have to open the wallet to take them out. Also this method of stacking the cards keeps it thinner. It's been years looking for a wallet to replace my old one with these same features!
I bought one of these wallets several years ago because, as several people have noted, the wallet design tends to hold cards securely. I have been quite happy with it and am about to replace it with an identical Royce bifold. The first time, I had to settle for brown, this time I can get it in my preferred color: black.
This was a Christmas gift for my father. One of his friends saw it and ordered it immediately from Overstock. Much thanks again for a perfect product at a great price!

I have been looking for this type of wallet for many years. I especially wanted a wallet with vertical credit card slots not horizontal. I liked it so much, I purchased 2 for myself and one for a birthday gift. I have been very happy with this wallet.

My husband was very pleased with this wallet. The standard man's wallet is too bulky for his pocket and hard to remove. This wallet is compact and comfortable to use. The price was very reasonable for the quality that I received. I would certainly buy again from this site again. This is the second purchase I have made at this site and have been extremely pleased and satisfied. Do not hesitate to buy from this company.
The wallet is 3 weeks old and is just what I was looking for: a thin bi-fold wallet that is "higher" than it is long. It has sufficent card slots, (6), and though it did not come with a photo insert, there is room for it and slots for it to fit. All-in-all, a good buy.
If you're looking for a bi-fold in this orientation (not the usual "landscape" orientation but in "portrait" mode), this is it.The material is very smooth, which makes it a bit hard to grab and pull out of my pocket, but hopefully over time it will soften more. The brown leather and stitching look very uniform. No creases, no blotches, no hanging threads.
