VISCONTI Small Boxed Mens Hunter Slimline Leather &hellip Visconti
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful design, 2 Jun 2014
This is a beautifully-made wallet. The leather is superb, reasonably thick and with a good oiled finish.
I wanted a wallet that would be as small as possible and this is ideal. It takes notes and there's plenty of room for card - there's even a space for change.
This will be a long-lasting companion and fits into my pockets snugly.

I bought this set after spending quite a lot of time being discouraged by reviews in various parts of the internet which tended to be damning. Having sampled a range of the symphonies I can only feel sad that such a great undertaking - the recording of all these splendid and at times brilliant symphonies in a series of concerts titled Haydn is Fun! - by a superb orchestra and conductor should be seen by anybody as a reason to carp. Yes, it is a bargain -price set, and yes there is the odd careless mistake in the translation of the notes from German to English.. but the music? That, to me, my ears and all, is so well done that I want to thank the musicians, and Sony, for this splendid set. I… Read more
