The Essex has been a beloved member of the Louise Goods wallet lineup since its release in 2016. It's similar to a bifold, but eliminating the cash slot slims down the profile while still maintaining 6 card pockets. If you're a minimal cash carrier, fold your bills in half and slide them in the pocket under the slots on the front side (see photos for example). A lot of folks who carry this wallet like the simplicity of it, and transition out of a bifold and into this style. It's a good step towards minimizing your wallet without overdoing it. If you're looking for something even smaller, the next size down in our collection is the Stanton!

How many cards fit in the Essex Wallet?
Once broken in, the Essex will hold at least 10 cards + some cash. Start out with one or two cards in each slot, and over the first few weeks, you'll be able to fit more. Keep your primary cards (debit, credit, ID, Metrocard) in the four slots for easy access, and store your business cards and other less-used cards in the pockets below the slots.
