Bomber Jacket Shirt Pocket Briefcase
Too wide, a little too thick.
I really wanted this Shirt Pocket index card holder to work for me. I live on index cards in my pocket, sometimes loose and sometimes clipped together.
The Levenger Shirt Pocket Briefcase is a great idea that almost works. Unfortunately it does not fit width wise in many of my shirts (dress and work casual, size men's small). 3 x 5 cards always fit and a little extra on a side to hold the cards would still work. But the extra unneeded 1/4" width on one side to form the middle pocket makes the case too wide.
I would also say that the thickness is overdone, with 4 plys of leather and 4 pockets. I want a minimalist 3x5 card holder. I think the outer active card holder plus one inside card pocket would work. Maybe two inside card holder pockets (as you say - for used and blank cards). I do not want the extra receipt pocket that causes the extra width and thickness.
Finally, as noted in other reviews here, the outside card holder slots could be a little closer together so that cards do not pop out. Mine often pop out of the top or bottom and so I try to keep them as centered as possible, which is annoying.
Why don't you work on a more pocket friendly and more card secure design?

For 25 years, my soldier husband carried 3x5 cards clipped together in his pocket for notes. I monogrammed this for his birthday to give him a stylish look for his new consulting gig! He loves it, and his monogrammed ivory cards!

I was replacing a worn-out Levenger pocket briefcase that had served me well for several years. The new one has too large an opening to securely hold 3x5 cards; they fall out, I was hoping it was an anomaly and had another one sent. It had the same problem.

Perfect to write on & Looks Great!
The bomber jacket shirt pocket briefcase is beautiful to look at and very functional. It matches all of my bomber jacket products and it takes up no room and holds all of my 3 x 5 cards. It is perfectly organized to hold one card on one side so that you can make notes and write on it and on the backside hold additional cards that you will need for later. Great design Levanger, thanks again, Stavros

Perfectly meet the requirements
This item was exactly what I was looking for to hold a small number of 3X5 cards. My requirement demanded the case to be leather, have a professional, manly and stylish look, and be transportable in my dress shirt pocket. The bomber leather pocket briefcase exceeded all my expectations. It received so many complements that I purchased two additional ones and gave them to my office mates who carry 3X5 cards held together by a small alligator clip in their shirt pockets. The gifts was very well received and put in immediate use.

Convenient For On-the-Go Note Taking
This is the most convenient, stylish, and functional note taking device I've ever had. Several competing companies make 3x5 note card holders, but they are of inferior quality. The texture if the leather and strength of the stitching in this product are unmatched. This is a great gift idea for business professionals or for anyone in need of a sleek, handy note card holder.

This purchase was a replacement for a 12 year old shirt pocket briefcase used by my husband always as a 'back pocket briefcase'. The texture of the Bomber Leather keeps the briefcase from sliding out of the back packet unexpectedly.
The extra pockets are very useful.

Save Your Business Cards
I have the occasion to jot short notes to myself and others all throughout the day. Before I purchased the Bomber Jacket Shirt Pocket Briefcase, I would use one of my business cards. No more. This incredibly handy note card holder eliminated that practice completely. Also, I'm able to keep a running 'to do' list on a separate stored card. The beauty and quality of this item are superb. I wish I had one years ago.

Completing the Set
Over time I have collected most of the Bomber Jacket desk accessories, and thought this would be a good final piece. With my job I need to be ready in a 'moment's notice' to write something down. For that, this is a great product...not to mentioned it looks & feels very expensive/high quality. Keep up the great job Levenger!

Picked this up for when I take customers to coffee, lunch, dinner, etc. Nice stylish stores some to-do cards (action cards), business cards, and receipts. It is the metrosexual pocket protector.
