International Pocket Briefcase with Pocketini Pen
If you are in sales, this is ideal. With a pen and 3X5 notecards, you can jot things down anytime, plus the internal pen is so useful during the day.
Holds enough credit cards but its real advantage is storing receipts in the deep pocket.
Only improvements would be to round the corners. The corners of this wallet are pointed. My fear is that this will be a wear point. Better if it had rounded corners. Aside from that it is well designed.

Only one complaint
I bought this product after two years of coveting the one my parents bought as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. I decided to splurge and get the pen.
The pen slides out of the slot! The pen that is sold with this should be a design with a clip.

Just what He Wanted!
My husband carries index cards to take notes during meetings, and asked me to see if anyone made a wallet that would hold them. I searched Amazon and several other sites, and stumbled across Levenger's stie. I ordered this pocket briefcase, and he loves it. The classic black leather looks professional and fits in his suit pocket, and the classy looking vertical lined cards complete the business look. He's not thrilled with the pen, but has a pen of his own that fits in the wallet. Now he doesn't have to carry loose cards in his shirt pocket, or dig them out of his briefcase when he needs them. He just pulls out his attractive Levenger's wallet and he's ready to take notes.

Great way to keep thoughts from escaping
I owned the pocket briefcase, but found I would occasionally leave it at home. This was the answer--one doesn't leave home without a wallet.
This is a great item and I highly recommend it to all of my friends. I have always carried a very slim wallet. The point being to only carry the necessities. This will hold the necessities, but it will help make certain little thoughts do not escape you.
I find the ID window with the thumb cutout to help get the ID out is not especially effective as I have to fight with it and most servers end by saying there's no need to pull it out. In addition I have to use the raised numbers on my cards to get them out of the slots-I'm guessing it's a bit tight to help keep it thin. This is just a quirk, not necessarily a flaw.
Get this. Remember more. Become more productive.

I bought one of these years ago and loved it. It was made of soft glove-like leather. After the dog destroyed it I ordered a new one. Very disappointed in the quality of the leather - whereas the old one was soft and you could get a good grip on it, this leather is dull-looking yet slippery, and feels cheap. Wish I could find an old one to buy.

My Second International Pocket !
I carry my black one with me everyday because I like to be able to take notes - I am never without a pen with this! I just purchased a second one in saddle to use as my travel wallet. It fits my passport, a couple credit cards, business cards, as well as euros and dollars. Wonderful. Everything nice and near and organized, and still the ability to take quick notes on the fly. Love it!

Very good quality, lacking some card slots.
The construction and materials used are of very good quality. The money slots are great and very useful. There are two pockets provided: one deeper for international notes, and one shallower that fits US dollars perfectly.
My only complaint is that there is only two card slots to put credit cards in. I wish there were a few more and a separate place for business card storage.
Note taking abilities
Only two card slots
No separate place for business cards
Pen slips from hand

An excellent product
I bought this wallet more than a year ago; despite a lot of rough treatment, it still looks beautiful. The larger of the currency pocket holds my passport conveniently (which I use on a weekly basis), the side pockets hold all my cards well (I've never had any fall out), and the 3x5 cards are incredibly handy (I've even substituted those for business cards in a pinch). My only suggestion is that Levenger not force customers to buy the pen with the wallet. I've kept a cheap and rather large Sharpie in the pen slot contentedly for most of the time I've had the wallet. Otherwise, well done!

greatest wallet, needs minor tweaking
Love this item. It's been all over the world and still looks great after many a year of service.
Two tweaks that I wish would be considered. First, the sleave for the pen stretches over time (it is made of leather, after all) which allows the pen to fall out quite often. It only there was a clasp or other method to keep the pen where it belongs --
Second tweak -- the credit card side of the wallet has a flap that is open top and side. Unfortunately, sometimes you may slide a card in there, only to have them fall out when you open the wallet. I cured this by going to my local shoe maker and he stitched a leather strap across the top of the flap and onto the wallet body so that the cards couldn't slide out the side, but keeping the "mouth" large enough to allow credit cards to slide in.
I'd buy another in a heartbeat if these things were addressed!

Great Wallet but I often misplace pen.
I have owned this Wallet for just short of a year. The leather looks like new and has worn beautifully. This is a piece for the minimalist as adding more than ID, Corp Card and personal card for travel along with 3x5 cards makes it a little bulky. The only downside is the center slit for the pen does not securely hold the pen and I routinely find my pen in the car seat and have had it fly out when pulling th wallet out of a jacket pocket too quickly. I would highly recommend the wallet but will replace the pen with the Walletini Pen with the clip to hold it in the wallet better when I finally lose the Pocketini pen.
