    +1 on Launer. Also Swaine Adeney. Now 150 quid, unfortunately.

    Went to Hermes, they had the usual billfold design and also a nice one with a vertical orientation for the credit cards, was $1100.

    Just bought the Swaine Adeney Brigg in London Tan. It's OK. I guess I'm not a big fan of soft/thin calfskin.

    Currently, I spoke with Bea from AIP who is making one to my specifications.

    My wife has twisted my arm and made me carry a red wallet which (in the right nuance of red) she could only find from Tod's.

    Fortunately, I will only need to carry this wallet throughout the year of the Tiger (until February 2011) but I guess it will have to be dusted off when the Tiger comes around again 12 years later.

    Upside is that I am lately less eager to pull out my wallet and pay for dinner.

    Valextra makes several nice, slim wallets. They would be my recommendation

    +1 for April in Paris...

    If you wanted something interesting, you could do GC's Reindeer Leather:

    http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/201...-leathergoods/


    That leather is so very beautiful. However, I am convinced that there were about 500 tonnes of it since GC never seems to run out. More than I'd like to spend on a wallet, but maybe one day when I'm a big timer.

    I currently have a Valextra that I quite enjoy.
