Big Skinny

Performance Wallets

Sleek & Slim

Good looking, slim, and functional. That’s the story behind every Big Skinny wallet. Sleek and silky to the touch, the durable nylon micro-fiber shrinks the space needed by a traditional wallet. Its material is at least five times thinner than leather, meaning a Big Skinny is just 1/10 the thickness of a folded leather wallet.

Founder Kiril Stefan Alexandrov, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, spent years searching for the perfect thin wallet and came up empty. He wouldn’t rest until he developed one himself. He
tested fabric after fabric--more than 75 combinations--until he found “the one.”

Big Skinny’s advanced nylon micro-fiber is durable, looks beautiful, and has a satiny feel. Kiril was inspired by an Italian luxury fashion house, who used a similar fabric for their globally popular tote bags.

On top of their aesthetic attributes, Big Skinny wallets are water resistant and machine washable, too. Kiss your bulky billfold goodbye, and your pocket or purse will thank you.

    Hi Jim, Thanks for stopping by to check out the Big Skinny Wallets. At this time we are only selling the Plus Size Myphone and the Slimvelope. Check back in the future to see if we have added any other styles. We have some other great wallets in our men's category you might be interested in

    We've owned your products for several years. Need to replace my husband's beloved Big Skinny hip clip phone case, but it's not on your website. What happened?

    @Rebecca Is the Plus Size large enough to fit a iPhone 6 with a minimalist case?

  • Stephanie
    12/3/2014 1:39 PM

    @Crystal yes it should, it fits the super large samsungs. Big Skinny will bring back the hip clip in the spring due to popular demand.

    @Hillary actually we are developing RFID Big Skinny wallets right now and will be launching a campaign on in the next weeks where the first 75 supporters in each wallet model category will receive their new RFID Big Skinny wallet before Christmas.

    Great looking and practical sounding wallet. Does it have an inside coin section? Thank you...

  • Stephanie
    12/3/2014 2:11 PM

    @Louise actually for ease of constant use, we put the coin pockets on the outside so you don't gave to open your wallet every time.

    Your web site won't allow a person to order three different things. Everytime I add a different item it looses the previous item. ????
