I bought the Louis Vuitton Victorine Wallet in the Monogram Canvas despite the fact that most YouTube reviews about the wallet weren’t all that promising, and I’m glad I did.
I was looking for the smallest wallet that can carry about 12 cards and some emergency cash and coins. The Louis Vuitton Victorine Wallet delivers exactly that need. It’s got 6 credit card slots. They’re tight to begin with but loosen up with use. There are 2 side pockets the can fit the remaining cards. I split the remaining 6 cards in my stash between the two pockets. There’s a pocket for cash and a zipper pocket for coins.
The zipper pocket for coins isn’t very big – if you’ve got cards in the credit card slots, even with just a few coins, the zipper pocket feels really full. I’d rather not have any coins and I’m still hoping that the pocket loosens up a bit.
If you’re not a fan of the Monogram Canvas, the wallet comes in both the Vernis and the Empreinte leathers. In hindsight, I think I would have loved to get the Louis Vuitton Victorine Wallet in the Amarante Vernis – which is my all time favorite color in the Vernis line. But the leather lines cost about a $150 more than the canvas lines.
Just with a couple of months of use, the wallet has loosened a bit. But the canvas isn’t all that malleable so I don’t think it will be any looser than it is.
It’s a great compact size that fits in all my small bags, which is what I wanted this style of wallet for.
