      Need a new wallet. I like the setup of the one I have but I dont remember where I got it and it's got no markings. Maybe Wilsons?

      Anyhow it's only got 6 card slots, 3 each side, with an ID slot on the outside. No money clip or bill opening, I rarely have any cash on me so not a big deal. 3 cards each side is a must, 4 possibly if it doesn't get too large.

      Price range... keep it under $100 and some sort of leather or suede. What's out there?

      Ralph Lauren has an awesome after Christmas sale, I got my wallet from them last year and just ordered one for myself this year.

      I hate spending money on wallets so I usually go Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx and find something there. I think mine is a Ralph Lauren leather wallet and I paid no more than $20 for it. They have a pretty decent selection as well.

      Search Joseph Abboud Super Slim Wallet. Several styles to choose from. Picked up Style JA0208/08 for $7.99 at Ocean State Job Lot here. They're on ebay, too, for low prices.

      Didn't need a wallet, but at that price, picked it up for later. If you want, I'll check if they have any more. Probably don't though since it was a few months ago.

      I have a really weird thing for designer wallets, its one of the very few things I'll drop serious coin on simply because I keep and use the same wallet for like 10yrs which is about the time really good wallets will need replacing (if you treat them right). I get my absolute monies worth out of them so its all good.

      I would not have guessed that any of those were men's wallets. A bit ostentatious for me.

      that's fine. I do like this one of your brand, but they are all very nice, if subtle.




      spectacles, testicles, wallet, or watch, i don't like to do subtle.

      I've been rotating between 2 different Paul Smith wallets for the past 7 years or so.

      For fun:


      For subtlety:


      The leather is very nice and overall the wallets are robust and sturdy. My only beef are the decorative threads at the edges which sometimes slide off the corners while in your pocket.

      Did some design work for Commoner and CO, a NYC leather goods start-up a few years ago. Been rocking their suite ever since. http://commonerco.com/collection

      I personally have many and like Corter Leather's goods (a one-dude operation based out of Boston): http://shop.corterleather.com/
      I currently use a small card wallet as the daily beater:



      He is also launching a less expensive line called Albatross.


      I also have several wallets and card holders from Rugby (back when it still existed). They are well constructed and have nice silk/stamped details:

      Wallets are the one thing I will spend a mint on. I mean for crying out loud I spent a $100 on a used Gucci from a vintage shop. Its the one personal accessory I will use/keep well over 5yrs straight or until they fall apart. I ALWAYS get my monies worth.

      Amazing quality handmade leather wallets. I got mine for about 50 bucks and its built to last for years... Only downside is that they take a while to ship because they are custom made.

      you can find some good and affordable designer wallets and cardholders, I recommend going for a comme des garçon or a acne studios cardholder, they look good and feel good.

      I have been using bellroy wallets for some time now. Their whole schtick is to "slim your wallet." However, they have very nice leather quality and a ton of sizes, layouts, and colors. For the price and quality, it is a good deal. Somewhat of a hipster brand like Miansai, Herschel etc..
