Nice, the Voodoo stuff is half the price of Makr. I might just card holder for daily use. (cash, license, credit card) With the non-essentials left in my main wallet at home.

Also just a heads up, if you are at all interested in a db clay Wallet, they are taking pre-orders starting in May. Here is a pic of no longer in production batch to give you idea on design.

Mission accomplished! I ended up getting the Voodoo flap wallet pictured above for $48/shipped off Etsy. It met every criteria put forth and came in 50% under budget... Thanks for the ideas guys, particularly Srivats and officeboy. Special mention to Pebblegrain for his brilliant insight and useful contribution to this thread.

Jesus H. Don't these places have anything that's a tad conservative? All those wallets look hideous at best. I wouldn't want to wish that on an emo Manouche, much less myself.

Completely disagree. Small accessories are the place to do something unexpected, or have a little flare. Like a bright necktie. I wouldn't want a briefcase in that kind of print, or a larger piece, but card cases, wallets, etc. I think look nice in a bright pattern. When paired with a simple, minimal larger piece (briefcase/tote/bag), I think it works. A brown/black/whatever standard wallet is really boring, IMHO.

I like the part where he answers his own question.

I agree that these wallets are not for everyone. Was merely making suggestions for this thread. And went as close as possible with guidelines stated in OP which included "Not a generic looking black or brown wallet. (For that, we can spend $10)".

+1000 On this. It's a great conversational piece that can be totally unexpected. Wear your conservative suit while carrying around a nondescript attache and then to pull a wallet out that has a unique pattern and/or color will always draw the eyes of the people around you.

Like I said above, the wallets are not for everyone and agree that taste is a very broad spectrum (for example, I dislike the design of Goyard *gasp!*) and not everyone can have/enjoy a fabled Green Hermes wallet.

i don't like the voodoo wallet at all but obviously a lot of people like it here on the boards. i also don't like the redmoon type stuff so much. other stuff people have recommended here that i liked the look of.. wild swans. henry cuir http://s4.thisnext.com/media/largest...n/6D94C13D.jpg and here were the cdg i meant. the one's with zips. dunno if they bother people but i like them.. pretty sure the cdg's are under 100 coz i remember regretting buying my LV when the cdg was what i was really looking for. sort of like men's zippy.

I thought about that also. If you're going to put in 3 credit cards and some cash, it needs to be a little thick. Otherwise, something as flat as a credit card holder would be a pain to get your stuff out of. Gwolf, I like the green wallet. Can you post a link? Otherwise, do you think the other wallets with snaps and zippers come off as feminine? Like a grandma change purse? Personally, this is why I avoided that kind of style.

It does look thick, but it's really not.
It gets quite flat if you keep it in your ass pocket.
