Marc Jacobs The Leather Zip Around Wallet Review

A month ago, I gave a review for the Marc Jacobs The Leather Mini Tote Bag. I am linking it here. For my birthday, I was gifted the matching Marc Jacobs The Leather Zip Around Wallet also in the color, "Sun." The exact same color as my tote bag. They match perfectly together. Now, let's jump into this review.


4.5 x 1 x 4 inches

12 x 3 x 9 cm

(Length x Diameter x Height)

  • Full grain leather

  • Zip around closure

  • 4 card slots

  • 2 exterior slip pockets

  • Twill lining

Final Thoughts:

Color/ Print: 10/10

Material: 10/10

Smell: 10/10

Size: 10/10

Shape: 10/10

Hardware: 10/10

Organization: 9/10

Starting from the top, I gave the color/print a perfect score because as you know, I love this color. Sun is the perfect shade for me, so I was so excited when I received it in wallet form. The material is also a perfect score because it is crafted from the same luxurious full grain pebble leather just like the tote bag. Marc Jacobs uses such high-quality leather; it is amazing. There has been no wear and tear or color transfer either. When I received this wallet, I could just smell that new leather smell, and it smells amazing. Like a brand-new car type of feeling. No foul-smelling leather here.

The zip around wallet is the perfect size for me. I love using smaller wallets when I am travelling or going to events. I really only need my license and 2 cards when I am on the go. The shape holds up very well. The leather does not bend or wrinkle at all. The gold hardware is a classic, and makes the wallet look so elegant, I just love it. Very glad they used gold instead of silver because that would not match. I love how this wallet is designed around a zipper. The zipper holds the entire wallet together to ensure nothing will fall out, and I think that is brilliant. The yellow piece of leather on top of the leather adds a nice touch too. Lastly, for organization it is very easy to stay organized, as it is just a wallet. I wouldn't recommend throwing lose change in it though, as it could make the wallet dirty. I would just use it for cash and cards.

Overall, I rate this wallet a 10/10. The perfect little zip around wallet that you can take anywhere. Having a matching bag and wallet makes me so happy. I do not want summer to end simply because of the perfect summer bag and wallet set I have. I want to give a shoutout to my boyfriend Andrew for getting me this wallet for my birthday. Thank you, it is absolutely perfect, and I love it sooo much. I am beyond grateful. I am linking the Marc Jacobs The Leather Zip Around Wallet again here, for those who are interested.
