EXPLORING THE WORLD OF WALLETS

Tony Perotti is an excellent card wallet masquerading as a billfold

Using Italian full grain veg tanned leather (or so we think), this wallet feels like it has two separate billfold pockets, but it’s a card wallet on steroids with 2 ID slots and 6 separate card slots. If you’re a card and receipt hound, this wallet is for you

Today we will be reviewing the Tony Perotti which is a vertical bi-fold wallet. It comes in a brown box and the wallet is wrapped in craft paper which helps protect the leather. There are also a lot of Inserts. This particular wallet is brown. 

Now, onto the feature review of the Tony Perotti vertical bi-fold wallet. There are no features on the outside of this wallet. As we look on the inside, there is an ID slot with a quick access thumb push on the left side. Access of cards comes down from the top. If we flip it around, there is another ID card slot. This is very convenient for people who have to carry multiple IDs. On the left-hand side, there are three additional card slots. On the right hand side there are also three additional card slots which is nice.

As we get to the cash or the billfold pocket, which is really not made for cash, there is an opening in the front with a pocket, and a pocket in the back. There are no other hidden pockets in this. There are some genuine, authenticated-type tags inside to make sure you know this is a genuine Tony Perotti.

Now, onto the card and cash insertion test. This looks like a bi-fold wallet. There are pockets you would think are billfold pockets. However, It IS a bi-fold, but there are no billfold capabilities for cash. It is too short to have cash fit inside. If you want to put cash inside, we have to fold it over at least twice. Even if you do that, it still interferes at the point where it folds. You would really have to fold it twice to get it inside. There are places for receipts or business cards, but It’s really not made for cash. You can store some in here, but it’s not its primary purpose.

As for quality, the leather feels really good, but the insert card says it’s “100% full grain genuine leather.” Well, the website says it’s full grain Italian bull hide leather that’s been veg tanned. I can believe that, based on how it feels and smells, but their messaging really should be addressed on this because it’s very mixed. There is plenty of mixed lining which helps keep it slim. It doesn’t really seem to take away or interfere with it. 

The price is $40, which is really not bad at all. Understand that this is a card specific wallet. If you understand that, it’s actually a very nice feeling, looking, smelling wallet that I think will give you good value for your money. 

It measures 4.25 x 3 x 0.5”, and weighs 60 grams. That is heavy, but understand that it has a lot of different slots, different flaps and multi pockets in the back. You’d have to expect that. The products are sold at Walmart, so you know they have mass production going on to address demand around the world. They go out of their way to let you know it’s genuine, and not counterfeit. Those are the inserts that were included with the packaging. 

Now let’s get to the final score. For quality, a 4, price, a 4, features, 4, usability, a 3, and perception, a 3. That gives us a score of 36 out of 50. You would think for a mass-produced product there would be a lot of issues with it. I really didn’t find a lot with this one. I really liked this a lot, especially if you like to carry lots of cards.
