After being inundated with emails for this Black Friday, I selected two products from two different brands to see what kind of discount they would give me. At the end, the discount was pure marketing or non-existent so I decided to play it safe and buy a product that I had put on my wishlist. Dsquared2 always respects the Black Friday philosophy by applying a 30% discount on almost everything and this little cardholder was the perfect purchase for the occasion.
I state that I use different types of cardholders and I use them mainly for my free time when I wear skinny jeans. The Other types of wallets, being larger and thicker tend to deform the pocket of the jeans so I only use it with more comfortable pants. I liked this Dsquared2 model both because it was made of leather and for a particular detail. It opens like a normal wallet but is very small, it has space to house three credit cards (two internal and one external) but above all it has a very useful elastic band for banknotes that is not present in normal cardholders. Normally I use them to carry a credit card, the driver's license and then use the central slot for cash. In this case, the Dsquared2 model is perfect because while respecting the size of a classic model, it also has a dedicated space for it. As I show in the images, the € 100 banknote already exceeds the margin of the wallet so it is preferable to use small banknotes. Personally, when I go out especially after dinner I only bring pieces of € 5 and € 10 so this format is perfect for me, indeed I also have an extra slot that remains empty. Inside the cardholder there was a fake Dsquared2 credit card where you can enter your personal data. I think the purpose is to leave it inside so that in case of loss you can be contacted. I think it is not very useful for the wallet because there are already some personal ID there but this original accessory is perfect to use it for travel luggage. Some time ago I said that lately Dsquared2 only makes beautiful jeans and nothing else...obviously I have to rectify.
