How to choose the right long wallet zip around or L-zip?

How to choose the right long wallet zip around or L-zip?

Speaking of long wallets, the round zip is a classic shape from long ago, and it is characterized by its large capacity.

However, the "L-zip type" that has become popular in recent years. Hallelujah inc. handles both zip around and L-zip type, but what is the difference when actually using them?

This time I would like to introduce this difference. I hope it will be helpful for those who have only used the round fastener type until now.

"LONG WALLET" WHICH IS A STANDARD SHAPE
The zipper surrounds all three sides, and the shape is symmetrical so I think it's a wallet that everyone is familiar with.The merit is that it has a lot of capacity and it looks wide when the zipper is opened and it is easy to take out. On the other hand, it takes some time to open and close it many times.

It's recommended for those who want to store a lot, not those who open and close frequently.

"L-ZIP" LONG WALLETS 「TIDY SMARTY」

Next, as you can see "Hallelujah Leather L-zip Long Wallet SMARTY" that uses the same leather material, there is no zipper on one side. In addition, this wallet has no gusset in the part without the zipper, so it is much thinner than zip around wallets.

Since there is no gusset on one side, the capacity will be reduced. It's much easier to open and close. For those who open and close frequently, this will make it much easier to use and faster to pay.

The zipper on the coin pocket has also been removed, making it lighter and thinner. And because the wallet is thinner, it is easier to store in your pocket. And even if you put it in your suit pocket, it will not be thick, so it is a relatively popular shape for men.


It is also a nice point to have an outside card holder on the front.

L-ZIP LONG WALLETS 「TIDY」

 At first glance, you may think that it is the same as "SMARTY", but "TIDY" is a wallet with a large gusset on one side without a zipper.

"TIDY" is as easy to use as "SMARTY", it opens like "Hallelujah", and it is a long wallet with plenty of capacity.

The size is not so different from the zip around type, so it is not very slim, but it is recommended for those who store a lot and open and close the wallet often every day.

It is a wallet that can store a lot and is convenient for sorting.

There are also differences in the design of those wallets, so I think it's a good idea to decide from the perspective of "I like the shape of the standard round fastener!" and "I like the slightly unusual L-shape!". Please compare and find your favorite wallet.

Thank you very much for reading the article through to the end.
