All those wallets look hideous at best. I wouldn't want to wish that on an emo Manouche, much less myself.
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)".

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.
+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.
