The Difference Between the LV Long Wallet and Brazza Wallet

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Brazza wallets. Long wallets. Both look the same, with one key difference.brazza-and-long-wallets


Louis Vuitton long wallets come in a variety of choices. Epi, Taurillon, Taiga, and coated canvas the house is famous for, and much more. It’s a dependable wallet, one that you can find use for, everyday. So if you’re a fan of LV and if you don’t have one yet, it’s hard to imagine why not.

When I bought myself an LV wallet, I wasn’t able to read up enough blog posts or Youtube videos of what I might want. At the back of my head, I thought that there was only one kind of long wallet. (My purchase interests did not veer into flap wallets or zippy wallets that LV also has).

In case you’re wondering, the same looking wallet is called two things: the Long Wallet, and the Brazza Wallet. There is one key significance between the two. And we’ll find out more in the photos below.

The wallets all have 16 card slots, with an extra slip-on pocket where the Louis Vuitton logo can be seen. There’s two bill pockets (one wider than the other) helping you part your cash when necessary. And there are two flat slip pockets also for other odds and ends you might want to insert there (older styles have three flat slip pockets). You’ll notice that the Brazza wallet has a tiny little zipper pull, supposedly for perhaps coins. But myself I never had the heart to put coins in that compartment ever.louis-vuitton-brazza-wallet-monogram-canvas-small-leather-goods-m66540_pm1_interior-view

The Long Wallet is the same in almost everything. Except for one glaring fact: this kind does not have a zipper pocket. Which could be a downer for some, so they can instead get a Brazza.long-wallet-no-zipper

After several years with my own Brazza wallet, I realized several things. One, I didn’t have much use for the zippered pocket. And because it’s a hanging metal zipper pull, it tends to leave a mark on the leather where it rests: both dents and metal stains. It’s not a big deal though. But for a zippered pocket I thought I would use and while ending up not using it at all, on hindsight I should have gotten the Long Wallet instead.

Long Wallets, in my way of using it, would have been the perfect wallet for me. No zippers, no dents, no metal stains. So the wallet would end up sleeker, and perhaps less trouble some to carry around.

I’m not saying the Brazza Wallet’s zippered pocket is awful though. It’s just as beautiful. There are wallet users that prefer and use the wallet compartment too. And if you’re find carrying coins in a wallet where you carry cards too, there’s nothing wrong with that. The added bonus of having a wallet that doubles as a coin holder should not be a problem.

So in case you’re interested to buy a wallet in this form factor from Louis Vuitton, I hope this article helps highlight what I glossed over when it was my turn buying one. For me, I guess it’s time to buy a new one!

Following up on our previous post about the Balenciaga Giant Hip Shoulder Bag, we’re going to share an important mini bag today. This bag is inspired by the iconic Classic City; so say hello the Balenciaga Giant Wallet On Chain Bag.

Crafted from grainy lambskin, but with a tough motorcycle look, it’s clear that a lot of elements are copied from Classic City Bag. Take for example, the belt buckle detailing on the edges with studs. Or the front pocket with a studded metal plate underneath.

The chain strap adds a dose of tough-luxe attitude, carry it on your shoulder or remove it to change the Gaint WOC into a large wallet (or a clutch bag).

The exterior features a zipped flap pocket and the interior is well-structured, it includes two compartments, a zipped centre compartment, two bill slots and twelve card slots.

This is a casual chic bag, perfect for the winter and for the evenings as well. It copes perfectly with outside-wear like jackets and jeans.

Measuring 5’ x 8.5’ x 1’ inches, priced at $1145 USD, €1209 euro, $1985 AUD, $10300 HKD, ¥155000 JPY viaMyTheresa.

HERMES PASSANT LONG WALLET

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Passant-Clutch-Bag

A new Hermes baby has just been born and we’re all excited to lay our eyes upon this precious little one! A bouncing and lively Hermes Passant Long Wallet has finally made its way to the fashion world and we couldn’t be any happier and overjoyed.

More like being on cloud nine, one couldn’t just put into words how thrilled we are now that another long wallet from this world-leading brand is here to make our fashionable lives extra special.

The Passant is a long wallet in Epsom calfskin with leather loop and flap. Yes, its meticulous construction which contains removable parts such as the change purse and the six credit card slots is especially created for women who loves extra space and easy organization.

For those who are asking about the design, the flap is especially designed to simply tuck into the loop to secure the wallet. And for those who love multi functionality, you’ll have the best of both worlds in this wallet since it can also be carried as a clutch.

Meausring 20.5 x 9.5 cm and is priced €1450 euro, £1270 GBP via Hermes boutiques or e-store.

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my flatlays and my 102,834 wallets, which should last me 29,132 lifetimes, give or take a couple. What I mean is, I really do have many, and the last thing I should be getting is yet another wallet. And other than something small from Louis Vuitton recently, I’ve been a pretty good boy.

That was till I laid eyes on this handsome beast. Trying hard not to break my resolve is going to be another supreme exercise in self-control, but I cannot fault this new wallet from Hermès in any way. Known simply as the Passant, it comes in two sizes, but the one featured in today’s post is the longer of the two that measures 20.5 cm by 9.5 cm.

Actually made up of two parts (this one comes in gorgeous Epsom calfskin leather), think general flap clutch (of sorts) on the outside, with a removable pouch on the inside. The pouch is also where all the action happens, where you slot in your cards and your cash, with an additional zip pocket for loose change and receipts.

Priced at GBP1220, you can use the clutch on its own, the pouch on its own, or both together, which is genius because you can mix it up as and when you like. Just don’t let me see this in town tomorrow or I swear this will become my 102,835th wallet. You know what I mean.

If, however, you prefer something smaller, here’s the same Passant but with 2 card slots instead of the one you saw earlier which had 3. Also made of Epsom calfskin but in a colour called Flame, this one measures just 14.5 cm by 9 cm and retails forGBP1050. Yes, yes, yes!

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Diamond-CC-WOC

They said love is sweeter the second time around and we couldn’t agree more as Chanel’s Diamond CC WOC made its way back to Chanel boutiques on its repeat. Yes, this bag has been previously released and if you remember, it belongs to Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2014 Pre-Collection.

Now that we admitted that we’re in love with this bag, allow us to count the reasons why. First things first, we are over the moon for its bright yellow color. Yes, any bag that has a bright, bold and colorful hue makes its way to our favorites.

The diamond quilt also made our hearts skip a beat. Yes, it’s that gorgeous. The pattern is just so luxuriously made. However, it’s the embossed CC in the center that makes it all the more eye-catching and beautiful.

The price is still not yet known but rumor has it that it might be around €1600 euro.
