New Card Case

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

I am in the market for a card case, and have decided on three that I like. I currently have a LV damier wallet but want something smaller and more portable. 

 

My Choices Are:

 

Hermès Porquerolles in Black http://usa.hermes.com/leather/small-leather-goods/card-cases/porquerolles-card-case-15474.html

 

Dior Homme in Black http://www.dior.com/couture/en_us/fashion-accessories/men/leather-goods/business-card-holders

 

or

 

Tom Ford in Grey Lizard http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/p/Tom-Ford-Lizard-Card-Case-Dark-Gray-Bags/prod83620010_cat394711_cat394709_/?isEditorial=false&index=0&cmCat=cat000000cat200648cat203100cat261003cat394713cat394709cat394711

 

Quality-wise where would each stand?

I can't speak to the quality, as I own none of those brands' leathergoods. They all strike me as particularly meh, however (and what is with that awful Hermes website? That font is atrocious!). Have you considered Ettinger?

Those all sound good but the Tom Ford looks quite good.

I personally don't own any of the brands so like Huntsman 

I cannot attest to their quality. The card case I have

is a stitchless cordovan wallet- rare these days right?

Actual leather-working quality (of the 3 and IMHO):
1. Hermes
2. Tom Ford
3. Dior

I personally really like the Hermes, but the others offer a little more capacity and functionality.

Why don't you up the budget a little and get a TF croc?

Or really up it for some exotic Hermes action...

Malford -Do you know how much approx. it would cost? I can't seem to find any pictures of one online, if you could find one that would also help. I would love a croc card case.

I don't think I want to up my budget that much :)

You'll be hard pressed to find one online. You can call one of the TF boutiques.

They're pretty decent quality and when I was in a couple of weeks ago some SG pieces were marked down.

I found a RLPL alligator card case, would they be about the same price as TF? If so, don't feel like spending more than 2-3x the price of my current selection.

Probably close, but MoL would likely have a better idea of current/most recent pricing.

The Hermes is nice, I recently looked at one when I was in New York visiting the Hermes store and was tempted but got a scarf and a bowtie instead. I have this card case...
