    If those TF wallets are still on B&S in two weeks, I'm buying. If not, I happen to like those Ettinger wallets just posted. Thanks for the link. (I am also searching for a new wallet). To this day I'm still using an overpacked cheap black Nautica wallet I bought when I was 16. I'm now 23. How it's survived this far I dont understand. How I haven't replaced it with something else by now is even more confusing.
    Hah, sounds exactly like me. 22, black overpacked Nautica wallet that I got when I was 16 from Macy's. It's falling apart now and I'm trying to find a new one...and I'm hoping to beat you to the TF but probably won't [​IMG]

    If it does not fit in here, I don't need it! I got tired of carrying way too much. Driver's permit, health card, corp Amex, personal CC, 2 debit cards (1 personal, one biz), business cards. A little spare room to add on a specific need basis. [​IMG]

    The Launer and Ettinger both look great.

    In a lower price range, anyone tried the saddleback ones? Not quite as formal, but formal enough for anything I'd think.

    LV
    In Taiga, no visible VL crap all over it. Very well made.

    Take your 1-4 ordering and reverse it: that's my ranking. Though I hate to have to put the Smythson first, since David Cameron's wife has got her paws in that company.

    The pebblegrain Testoni wallet on Gilt now isn't bad; basic, slim, 8 slots.

    I love this Smythson -- six card slots and it looks like only one currency section (it's precisely what I need) -- but £140.00? Perhaps I'm getting cheap...

    Yeah. If your name is Terwilliger Fjorddottir, or Tresvant Frankenschauger. Perfect for you

    That's the one I posted. I think I'm going to go with that one. Or the 8 card version.

    LOL. I don't know why the TF on that wallet bothers me but not a complete name.

    http://www.makr.com/wallets MAKR Carry Goods - Angle Wallet (essentially a card case) - Kangaroo leather. Super thin and strong, holds cards well. Leffot's Fold Horween billfold - great alternative to a money-clip Buy both and get solid leather, good functionality, for less than most of the wallets in this thread.
