Most luxurious men's card wallet/holder wanted! - Page 3

post #31 of 47
Thread Starter 
Your suggestion of a bespoke piece from Hermes would take several months to realize besides the ridiculous costs even for a small thing, and I need something in less than a month as a gift for a good friend and business partner. Besides the fact that Hermes is kind of taboo in certain circles since you have X times the amount of fakes circulating on ebay or elsewhere. Watching Victoria B. carrying her Hermes goodies around doesn't help to improve the brand value and attractiveness neither... Thanks anyways!

Firstly, I assume you are not familiar with the Birkin. Secondly, your argument about the timing does not hold water; for the right price you can have anything you want when you want it. And why would anyone think your Centurion holder would ever carry a fake?

Think Gulfstream, Veyron, Monaco, Breguet, etc.
Any precise suggestion greatly appreciated. Thanks!





As a gift, I would suggest something that shows the thought and effort put into finding the item. I would suggest something personalized from a quality craftsman. In my opinion a gift from Hermes or something known to be expensive seems a bit flash. Besides, just because something is expensive doesn't make it unique, something I've certainly observed living in Monaco.

@NickM3 I agree with you that a very luxurious gift with a certain understatement would be perfect, even though not easy to find. Thanks for your thoughts! @emakris Well, your approach might work in certain establishments... I suggest to call and inquire Hermes, telling them that YOU want in 4 weeks a custom made 'one-of-a-kind' piece, and let us know their answer. Money talks, but is not always the right language!

@shasta / Torrente Thanks for your suggestions. Can you point to a link with Goyard card holders/wallets in croc or ostrich? Their site does not show much... These are the designs which come close to what I have on mind so far. By Amberg, Bottega Venetta and TomFord, all in croc for around 1,000 euros each, unfortunately only lined with calf inside which is kind of inadequate in terms of style but probably reasonable for the retail price. Still searching...

I like the TF and Amberg.

Who are buying gifts for? Russian oligarchs? Smacks of nouveau riche...

Next time I'm in Moscow I'll see what the young russkies are buying; or Dubai. We're both thinking of working in Abu Dhabi for a few terms..tax free but we'd be stoned probably.

Not sure if the brand is too pedestrian, but Ralph Lauren has some very nice exotic skin cases in the $1,000 range.

So far my favourite, in snake skin, minimalistic and somehow eye-catching:

Get something made by Meier-Brücher Paris.

Something in vegitable tanned Unicorn scrotum is the obvious choice here. Anything less smacks of desperation of the ham fisted small timer.

When it absolutely has to be hyper-elite...accept no substitutes.

@Cravate_Noire Can you point to a link with some photos of 'Meier-Brücher', since this one web page is full of....information?! @Joe Cool You're quite funny and might have your own TV show one fine day...
