Slimmy: the thinnest wallets on earth

slimmy.jpg

The Slimmyclaims to be the "slimmest front pocket wallet on earth," and is made for people who like to carry their wallet in their front pants pocket rather than their back pocket (though in my opinion, a fat wallet in either pocket is an eyesore). Styled like a man's wallet (I guess because they're made for men), and priced at a reasonable $25.95 - 39.95, the Slimmy is made of leather and comes in black, black with red lining (for $10 extra), chocolate, and sandstone.

If you decide to buy this ultra slim wallet, heed the Slimmy Style Warning:

STYLE WARNING: This slim wallet is not a magic trick. If you have a "George Castanza wallet," with over 10 credit cards, pictures of distant relatives, and 5 years of financial records, you WILL NOT be able to magically conceal the same contents in the Slimmy.

The Slimmy experience is about security, comfort and minimalism. Carry only what you need so that you are less exposed to theft, less emcumbered, and look better.

I'd carry this wallet in a small purse or a jacket pocket, though I wish they made a slightly more feminine-looking version in colors like lavender and orange.

The Slimmy's smaller sibling, the SlimSlimmy(for $32.95), is even thinner than the original (images and details after the jump).

The SlimSlimmy is the "ultra-minimalist version" of the Slimmy wallet and is billed as the "thinnest credit card wallet on earth." I think it's a nice alternative to using a money clip, which isn't so great for holding credit cards. The color choices are also minimalist -- just black or chocolate.

My favorite of the Slimmy wallets is the SportSlimmy sling wallet, which is meant to be carried on your pants or shorts that don't have pockets. To me, this is a little reminiscent of a small fanny pack (my anti-fashion confession: I shamefully love fanny packs) because it's based on the same idea of freeing your arms from bag carrying. The SportSlimmy sells for $14.95 on the Koyono website and comes in black, molten, sandstone, or yucatan (which translate to black, red, khaki, and bright blue).
