Good product.

Love the look, you cannot go wrong with a combination of wool and leather. I got my Old calgary Card case as part of box and all it lacks is multiple card storage slots such, I use it mainly as a business card holder. But in this day in age, of the internet and social media it is only a matter of time business cards are dead. Good product, great built and look but the specific item I received lacked everyday funcationality.

Weak
Sampled

I was excited to try a new type of wallet. I have been a traditional tri-fold wallet guy forever. However, this is a weak attempt at a wallet. Needs at least a money clip on the outside. No use for this.

Worst wallet I've ever seen
Sampled

Take two pieces of VERY thick felt and sew them together with a single opening and you have the old Calgary wallet. It is extremely cheap looking, although the stitching looks strong. The worst part about this product, which was a deal breaker for me, is that it is fatter empty than my current wallet is with 6 cards in it.

What is this?
Sampled

The picture of the wallet is completely different than what I received. I received two pieces of wool stitched together. Not the leather/wool combo with multiple pockets. Also, I received an identical product of leather from Roosevelt Supply a few months ago. Don't understand why I received. I was initially very excited to receive the actual product because it seems very unique, but what I actually received was useless.

Great product to slim your pockets while wearing a suit or going out.

not a bad product, just not functional for me
Sampled

I thought the alpha wallet was nice looking and functional for people who carry minimal wallet things. However, for me I couldn't see myself using this more than a handful of times during the year. I liked the wool texture, it gave a rugged and authentic feel but unfortunately it wouldn't be my ideal wallet. Probably make a good gift to the cards only individual or someone who doesn't like bi-folds.

Nice, but not really a wallet.
Sampled

I guess you could use this as a wallet if you're a real minimalist. Between my driver's license, credit cards, reward cards, and insurance cards, I carry 6 to 7 cards around with me at all times, not including money. I'm currently using this wallet as a business card holder, which works better for me in that capacity.

Not useful

I don't think I'll be using this. I like bi-fold wallets. The material doesn't seem very high quality and isn't the same as what you see on the website. So, nope. Not for me.

What everyone else said...
Sampled

What is pictured is not what I received. It is just two pieces of felt sewed together...I would never pull this preschool looking thing out of my pocket in public and call it a card wallet. Besides the fact I’ve already received a card wallet from Birchbox, that was much much better.
