Great styling, great quality. Perfect for a casual, down-to-Earth kid of guy. The only thing I was concerned about is that the ID window is brown mesh instead of clear plastic, but this actually works out better. The ID doesn't stick to the window, so it's easier to remove, and it doesn't matter that you can't see through the mesh as well (you can see through, but not perfectly) because if you need to show your ID for anything, they always just want you to take it out anyway. The hinge on my husbands old wallet was getting loose and was rubbing a hole in the back pocket of his jeans. This money clip has a different kind of hinge that shouldn't loosen and it is more rounded and smooth, so it won't rub as much on his pocket. Overall, better than I even expected and I highly recommend. *Bonus: The money clip is also a bottle opener. ** I ordered this to be a Christmas gift for my husband, but the day after I received it, he started looking for a new wallet. I told him to stop shopping for himself right before Christmas, but he said he needed a new wallet immediately as his old one was falling apart. I pulled this one up on my laptop and asked what he thought. He really liked it, so I went and got it out of our closet and handed it to him. He loves it!
I received my Rioni wallet today and I must say, it looks wonderful, the leather smells incredible, and it's perfect in nearly every way! There are plenty of card slots in the wallet. As I packed it full of my various cards, I noticed the first set of slots (on the left in the photo) became very tight. It is presently very difficult to get my cards out of this set of slots, but I chose to put my most-used cards in this row because it's the first row of cards you get to when you open the wallet. I expect the slots will loosen up over time. I also wasn't fond of the mesh covering for the ID slot. I previously had a wallet with a plastic covering that had a thumb slot in it so you could easily put your thumb over the "thumb-sized" hole and push your ID up out of the slot to present by itself. The mesh doesn't have that, and it is impossible to read my birthdate on my license under the clear plastic mesh. These are minor nitpicks in what is an otherwise exceptional looking wallet. It stands far above any other wallet that I've owned as far as style. A previous reviewer stated that you couldn't fit US bills into the bill pocket flat, but you absolutely can. It is a deep enough bill pocket that I anticipate when I travel, I'll just add the Euros into it (standing upright) and be able to differentiate between the two easily with no problems. I haven't given the coin purse a test yet, but I'm optimistic based on what I've read here. Great wallet, now I'm looking forward to receiving the matching purse to put it in!
I liked in the clear id holder, there is a hole in the plastic covering your id so that you can easily push out the card with your fingers. Very nice. The money clip is not magnetic, and is not too bulky on the width of the wallet, which I was worried about.
I like the wallet very much, i think the length could be increased slightly but with time dollar bills might fit very well. Cards slide in and out well and the construction seems high quality. I would have liked to see a 'thumb slot' in the clear I.D. window to aid with removal of the I.D. Overall i would rate the wallet a 8 1/2 of 10. Tim E.
