This guy is pure legend...

All three of them are kinda gross, with the gigantic embossed logos and stuff.

You need to get something understated and tasteful, like mine:

Generally this is preferable, yes.

I have a bb cordovan card case that I've been meaning to start using. I bit bigger than the coach, though.

I "vote" for the Tumi also, though the Coach looks good/sounds very practical. Myself, in relation to the Vuitton comment (a brand for brand's sake), I personally don't like wearing brands with large logos; of course athletes and actors do, the former need the sponsorship money so turn their jerseys, etc. into billboards (really think a Vuitton bag would be out of place on the field of play, and highly doubt they'd make a "splash" at the Tour de France even as saddle bags). As to entertainers, well, I don't take my "cues" from people who for career reasons must cow-tote to their fans/please the masses, thanks (love movies, music, sports, etc. myself and appreciate what they do, but really not interested style-wise as to what their handlers have to say). Indeed, many private sporting facilities and night clubs (to put it politely) frown on people arriving with large logos, and always did for good reason: it is rather (to put it politely) gaudy, and in rather poor taste (and remember, those athletes, etc. get paid to dangle those logos, since reasonable people are not walking ad boards, thanks). On the other hand, if the member particularly enjoys the actual article, in terms of its value and design, and his or her own personal taste, great (enjoy it, by all means). I myself believe in quality, and judge price by that criteria in terms of not only how it looks/feels, but as importantly how well (or not) it's made, and not by the logo (you get what you pay for and success is a state of mind and how well you do what it is you do, not what logos you wear which only means someone else is successful. It is a shame that some people feel that success is somehow connoted by wearing a certain outfit or carrying a certain wallet and/or card case (which isn't exactly being dangled about anyway, now is it?), but this sad line of thinking for some might also explain why, if you take a general poll of the masses, that most (aka the masses) who fall for this line of thinking (it's called advertising) aren't exactly successful themselves, but the brands who own/advertise the logos the masses fall for are, then on that I've said quite enough; again, if you love the brand and find it's value (in terms of quality, function, etc.) is worth the price, then by all means go for it. But if it's just the logo you want, posters are available too, right? And like others, don't mean to come down on anyone or sound too harsh at all, just, it irks me when people "flaunt" logos thinking it means something when in fact it does not (unless you yourself love it, then who cares what I or anyone else thinks, right? And that goes for athletes and entertainers, too, who likewise are free to do as they want and should, as should their personal trainers, stylists and handlers That said, I like the Tumi of the three myself, but also see very "smart" and stylish value in the Coach. +1 on both; just my .02 cents.

You fold it up, and they all go in the 'pocket', created by the fold.

Initially when the foldy-thing is new it's a little slippery on the inside, and loose as the folds don't crease sharply, so stuff falls out all the time out the (open) top, but over time the inside roughens up, becomes a little grippy and the creases form, then it's all sweet from then on.

You can take a card out like tapping a cigarette out of a pack, which depending on the broads you choose to hang out may or may not impress them. If you have notes in there you can literally pull one out from the sides with the thing still folded, which is nice as well if your local barman is the easily entertained sort.

Seems to be some kind of Asian tycoon or prince. Stays in the presidential suite at the Ritz and pays full price on Armani and Gucci shit. My favorite post on his blog:

But the only problem with my shoes are transporting them , as i travel very often therefore its damn annoying to bring them around which is why i think need a big Louis Vuitton suit case just to carry my shoes around when i travel, but not now or anytime soon as I am kinda broke after buying the Giorgio Armani suit , so I'll have to wait as I kinda have other smaller targets to obtain first. Such as .. more shoes lol ok i saw my sister's shoe rack and i thought it was pretty cool if i have one for myself where i can fill all my designer shoes , so i plan to expand my shoe collections which isnt that big right now. Anyway here are my current shoes starts from top left Bally MYR 2180 (with discount) Giorgio Armani MYR 2599 (with discount) Prada MYR 2540 Louis Vuitton MYR 1900 Gucci MYR 1690 Tod's MYR 1800 (with discount)
Those 6 tacky shoes cost $4,120!!! (12,709 Malaysian Ringits) Somebody needs to tell this guy about P. Lal. This pose just cracks me up:

any card case with no logos or prints or monograms works

The term "fashion victim" has never been so apt.

What do they cost? They look a bit like my Tardini one which cost me EUR 100. Now, Tardini offered an enormous range of colours, and it took me quite some time to decide on the orange one.

Genuine croc is terribly expensive, I've never asked though. Their normal card cases are about £80 and up, I assume crocodile would at least triple that.

It's a card holder however. I don't care what anyone says, a 20$ unbranded one at target will do the job. Don't waste your time even thinking about this...

A bit surprised to see this kind of comment here on SF...

I use this Filson case. Got it on deep discount for about $20.
