1.0 out of 5 stars | Not Frye Quality.
Color: Dark Brown
I purchased this exact same wallet in "ice" color at a local Dillard'd store 2 years ago. I recently purchased a new Frye handbag in dark brown (from Amazon) and decided to get a color matching wallet. The handbag is very nice and feels like Frye quality. However, this wallet looks like a Frye until you pick it up and open it. It feels lighter weight than my first wallet and the material inside it more synthetic rather than genuine leather. The quality seems cheap and not "Frye" quality. Next to my current Melissa Wallet, this wallet hardly seems like the same wallet. Either this wallet is a "spoof" off a Frye wallet, or Frye is starting to drop the quality of their products. Extremely disappointing if it's the latter. I purchase Frye products for the beautiful, versatile, high quality and long-lasting leather. This wallet doesn't fit that expectation and is NOT worth $158. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars | BEAUTIFUL WALLET!!!!!
Omg, I have found the wallet of my dreams, it’s beautiful, looks even more amazing after I treated it, and look at how roomy it is! Well worth the money & beyond!!!!! I’m going to mention again that I treated it with Frye Oil, it made my purse & wallet a tad darker, not too much, but that only made them look 100% better, oh I read another review that she didn’t like how tight the cards fit, well it’s leather & in time they (cards) will slide in & out!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Beautiful wallet!
I don’t know why this is labeled as the Melissa phone wallet when this is the Melissa Foldover wallet. It is more spacious than I initially anticipated and the leather is beautiful and soft. I am always torn between brown and black purses/wallets and the slate color is a perfect medium. As with any Frye product, the leather smell is always delightfully intoxicating. However, I am a bit disappointed that the back of the wallet did not come with the leather “Frye” stamped tag near the bottom; however, I think that is something I am willing to ignore because I like it so much. I also saw this exact wallet in department stores, like Dillard’s and Nordstrom, and they did not have the “Frye” logo on the back so don’t let that deter you off alone. I did buy it when it was shipped and sold by Amazon and they are an authorized retailer and the products are also covered under the Frye warranty! I emailed Frye to verify this. I plan on treating it with the Frye weatherproof dressing to protect against the elements, maybe this will also cover and protect against the scraping and nicks that it easily picks up. Frye recently came out with their own leather lotion and they recommend it for their wallets and handbags. I, again, emailed Frye to verify this. Overall I am a big fan of the Frye products and their timeless beauty, quality and simplicity!

3.0 out of 5 stars | Beautiful but had to return because no slot for checkbook/register
This wallet is gorgeous, but I had to return it because there is no place to put checks and a check register. If I did not need it for checks, I would have rated it 5 stars. Some of the other reviewers said there was a place for checks, but there is not, unless you just want to put them in a slot and not actually use them. I got the pine color, and it was beautiful. The leather is soft and just what you'd expect. I was really disappointed to have to return it. I bought the Lodis Audrey checkbook clutch (sequoia/papaya color) instead. It is very, very nice too, but I wanted the Frye more!

5.0 out of 5 stars | This wallet is amazing. I had a coach wallet for 10 years ...
This wallet is amazing. I had a coach wallet for 10 years until the zipper broke so I've been hesitant to buy anything else. I've purchased 2 other cheaper wallets and was very disappointed. When I saw this I knew it could be the "one".....so I was hopeful! It's beautiful, smells wonderful, holds everything (but not your phone) and has slots for absolutely everything. I know this is my last wallet for at least another 10 years. I love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars | Coin pouch zipper broke on second use
Nice leather, great organization with lots of card slots (13 plus ID) and divided sections (4) plus an outside slip pocket. Unfortunately the zipper on the coin section broke off the second time I used it. The metal loop holding the pull actually snapped off, so the zipper was no longer usable. I'm actually rather shocked as I didn't expect this of Frye, or any wallet costing more than a few dollars for that matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Beautiful!
Color: Dark Brown
I love this! The leather is good quality and was just what I was looking for. I am not huge in to purses or wallets, but I found myself accruing more and more cards that I needed a space for. This was right up my alley. It has just enough room for everything I need to bring with me. Excellent!
