Yes the card/photo insert can be purchased separately...I've gone through at least 4-6 or so over the past 10-15+ years I've used this wallet. What is important is that the side section has a place to slip it into, as not all do.
One of the things about this wallet that makes it a bit more unique to the mass of those similar ones is that it is almost square. There are some similar in most other respects (but not exactly) that are significantly wider than they are high. So, for instance the license sits in the opened up wallet with your picture to the same orientation that George Washington's would be on your bills. In my wallet, the license sits sideways, giving it what I feel is a shorter profile.

You need to have your vision checked if you think it looks seldom used. I don't think there is a cure for lack of wit - but you can ask your doctor.
Aaaaah! You've dissed one of the few masters of wit still remaining on FWOT, and that after calling us FWF or perhaps, inviting FWF to cross forums! Must avert my eyes from the horror that must inevitably be visited upon you!

You do know that OT means OT from the other forums... not that you should go OT from the OP, right?
In all seriousness, this thread did help me help myself. After explaining in my previous post how my wallet is structured, I realized the key was stating how my ID was positioned vertically. This led me to actually search for "vertical bifold wallet" and one of the first hits was this /r post:
Which pretty much echoes my sentiments exactly. The advantage of my type of wallet is that it has the slim Height X Width factor of a trifold, but it is missing the extra fold thus providing a slimmer appearance (less depth).
Like the /r author states, having the cards remove vertically from the wallet as well is a defining feature of this wallet type and it is also accurate that it is very difficult to find this type of wallet and the majority of the few that are found tend to be in the $150+ price range.
After much searching I found a couple that I thought matched up in the < $30 range but each one had an issue (one was brown only, the other actually didn't store bills in an upper pocket, but rather was meant to stuff them folded behind the ID). Finally, I came upon this one:
I was hoping to find something for half the price, but I realize that my preference (to stick with almost exactly what I have) means there are very slim pickings. I'm pretty sure I've been using this wallet of mine for at least 12 years, and honestly it may be closer to 20. So, $40 for another one that hopefully lasts that long is nothing. Just placed the order as I have free returns with Prime in case I don't like it.
Is this where the convergence of FWF and OT will occur? This could be almost as interesting as the election. Interesting that our friend from Amazon land came in with a similar but non-vertical wallet.
