I owned a PRADA Saffiano in the billfold style and I must agree though that the leather is fabulous. One issue that swayed me away from the card holder though was that it only had one pocket on each side.

Valextra by a mile. I've used that design for a couple of decades.

+1 Valextra gets my vote. I've got a wallet from them and it is excellent.

Valextra for the win. The other 4 look basically identical!

I have a Prada Saffiano with ID window and I LOVE it. The leather has a really nice texture to it.

Does Ettinger compare favourably? I'm becoming quite attracted to their yellow leathers.

The PS holder is still much understated than the excessive branding from other luxury brands however. After actually holding the PS card holder though I was much less impressed and the quality seemed to be lacking a bit (some loose stitches and the "frail" looking leather was paper thin).

Thanks for the opinions guys! The poll confirmed my own preference and I will go ahead and buy the Swaine card holder and return the Paul Smith. Just saved myself 45 bucks on a better looking wallet and I think this will probably last a bit longer to boot.

Looks like you've made your decision, but I'll say that your original one wasn't bad at all. All except the PS are conservative. But if you're not comfortable with the PS (if you think it will bug you each time you look at it) then you have to go with one of the others. Which is OK because I don't think you can do any wrong with either of them.

Valextra is pretty darn sweet. I owned the P Saffiano, but it got stolen, so I can' t recommend it...
