Characteristics of All-Weather Leather Wallets to look for:
Dooney and Bourke designed and sold a few different styles of Zip-Along Wallets or Wallets on a String as some call them, in several colors and color combinations during the 1990’s
Dooney’s Zip-Along Wallets come in three sizes:
The smaller one W50 is square (5.25 x 5.25) and mainly for cash, IDs and credit cards or drivers license. Strap drop length: 25 inches. Original cost $150
Dooney's Small Zipalong W51 measures 4.25 inches Tall by 7 inches long. Strap drop length: 25 inches. Original cost: $165.00
The Dooney larger Zipalong W52 is rectangular (8.5 x 5.5 inches) and is designed to hold a great deal in a small space such as checkbook and with the size of cell phones being smaller these days, one could carry their cell phone in these Dooney Billfolds also. Some have a removable check-book holder. Strap drop length of 25 inches. Original cost for the Large Zipalong was $195.
This Dooney Zip-Along Wallet is the larger W52 rectangular one.

Adore Purses Rating System:
- #10 is a bag which is like new with almost no signs of use. Remember all Vintage Dooney Bags are pre-owned unless they appear in the NEW section of the store, however purses with a #10 rating either have been used very little or appear not to have been used at all.
- #9+ is a bag which is Almost New in appearance. These Dooney bags may have slight/small signs of use and this will be noted in the description. There might be light wear noted on the brass fob or closure. There might be a very light stain inside or ink mark which is hardly noticeable. Look closely at the pic’s and read all details.
- #9 is a bag in excellent condition which is in near mint condition and is nice with only slight signs of use such as stain inside which cannot be seen outside or scuff on brass components. This would be a Dooney with less than normal wear. Again read the description & look at the pic’s and ask questions about any concerns you have before buying.
- #8 is a bag in very good condition. It has normal signs of wear such as inside ink mark or stain, light scuffs, or other minor issues which will be noted in the description.
- #7 is a bag in Good Condition with signs of more use. It is structurally sound and will likely have darkening of the piping or duck seal. The body will be in good shape without the crispness of a bag with less use. This Dooney Vintage bag may have small scuffs or inside stains and all issues will be described in the details and pic’s.
- I do NOT sell bags in Fair or Poor Condition
