#BAGAHOLICBOY SHOPS: 6 Long Flap Wallets To Check Out


Before miniature bags and tiny SLGs came into fashion, long flap wallets (also known as ‘continentals’) were popular options that you could count on for holding a ton of cards, cash and perhaps even a week’s worth of receipts.

Today, they remain a firm favourite for those who insist on having every single card with them when they are out and about, all of which can be kept neatly within the 12 or so dedicated slots in these wallets. An indispensable companion for those who prefer to have everything in one place, it is also perhaps time to get a new long wallet since it is the end of the year.

Interested? Well, here are 6 styles in classic black to consider, and all of them feature a front flap complete with gold-tone hardware that amps up on the luxe factor. They also come with signature elements from the respective houses; in other words, all tried-and-tested icons guaranteed to last for seasons to come.

Going in brand alphabetical order, the list begins with Chanel’s 2.55 Long Flap Wallet (SGD1630) in diamond-quilted aged calfskin leather, measuring 19.4 cm wide and 10.5 cm high that’s comparable to a WOC size without the accompanying chain. CHANEL

Then there’s the Large Flap Triomphe Wallet from Celine that comes in shiny calfskin leather with a lambskin leather interior. Priced at SGD1250, you will find 12 card slots, 2 gusset compartments, a flap pocket and a zipped pocket all packed within its 19 cm by 10 cm frame. CELINE

Dior’s Caro Wallet (SGD1450) might be one of the newer styles, but you can’t deny that the Cannage topstitching is one of the most emblematic Dior motifs dating back to Monsieur Christian Dior’s fashion show in 1947. Today it serves to augment the contemporary style of the Caro Wallet, which stands at 19 cm by 10.7 cm. DIOR

The GG Marmont Continental Wallet from Gucci (SGD1270) is another favourite option loved by many. Coming in matelassé chevron leather complete with a GG logo front and back, this 19 cm by 10 cm style remains a classic option at Gucci till today. GUCCI

Go for Louis Vuitton’s Twist Wallet (SGD1680) if you love an oversized twist (pun intended). Epi leather is known for its hard-wearing properties, so you can definitely rely on this 19 cm by 10.5 cm style if you’re all about getting leather goods that are pretty low on maintenance. LOUIS VUITTON

Rounding up the list is the Monogram Large Flap Wallet (SGD1090) from Saint Laurent. Made using chrome-free and metal-free tanned leather, this updated style is complete with quilted over-stitching and YSL interlaced initials on the exterior and comes in at 19 cm wide and 11 cm high. SAINT LAURENT

Now comes the hard part. With sizes almost the same, as are the finishes and even the pricing, all of which are under the 2K mark, which will it be for you?
