I've bought Hilfiger brand products over the years and have been satisfied with them and their quality, though most are made overseas. This wallet is made in India.
But don't go buy this wallet if you think you can fill it up. My wife bought this for me as a replacement. I use only one wallet (as opposed to some men who carry two, a billfold with pictures and then a second for all the credit cards) and I fill it up. This wallet is slim and small. The one I have, which is exactly like the one in the photo here, also has a picture section.
So tonight, I went through the process of taking everything out of the old, worn out wallet and transferring it all to the new Hilfiger wallet. Seemed like it was fine until I tried to close the tri-folds over each other to put in my pocket. Guess what? They won't close. Fill the credit card slots as they are positioned, put a couple of photos and your SS card in the picture section, your ID and a few bills and the wallet will not close. It looks great EMPTY, but once you put everything in it, it's totally useless. And for $30? I even took the picture carrier out and it still won't close!
Now, until I can get to the store and buy a real wallet that has plenty of capacity, or order one of the "hipster" wallets here on Amazon, I've got to take half of the stuff out of the Hilfiger wallet and put into a second wallet to carry around. Not a happy camper here.
So though I've always been happy with the brand, my word of warning is "try before you buy". If you fill every slot that this wallet has, good luck folding it and getting it in your pocket!
