I just switched from an Old, thick Bi-fold I got from my Father a long time ago. It was my first time getting a "slim" or "Minimalist" wallet and was pretty unsure which direction to go (vertical vs horizontal, one wide pocket vs 5 designated pockets, No cash holding, etc). When I came across Andar and was impressed with pretty much every model they have. I ended up getting the Scout in saddle leather and WOW! It is gorgeous. It feels like soft/durable leather. It scuffs and scratches and patinas like good leather should. It holds my 6 cards plus an extra pocket for cash. I can see myself using this wallet for a very long time. It is absolutely worth $40.
The Scout is definitely a great minimalist choice! So happy that you shared your great feedback on your experience with the Saddle Brown color and the leather itself. Can't wait for you to enjoy the Scout for years to come!
