    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I need a new card case for my ID, CC's, and the occasional business card. I always carry a money clamp in my front pocket and a card case in my back, buttoned up. I've used the Beza Money Clamp and can't compare to anything else. While the clamp is great, the wallets they have suck, so I'm in need of a new one.
    I've pretty much narrowed it down to a few.

    I like the BB, the design, looks like its of good quality and has 4 slots, but at $100 it is a bit overkill, even if it's made in italy. Too late for the Pref. Sale but I may be able to wait for the F&F, but it would still be the most $ of the 3

    The Coach is also an option for half the price and with 4 Slots

    Then of course there's the RL Polo for $75 and only 3 slots

    The other question is which color to get that would work well in either business dress or casual attire.

    I have a Calvin Klein wallet I use and its worked for me just fine. Help up pretty well for only being a $40 Wallet. I used to have a Tommy Bahama wallet and looked like real nice leather. Not like many of the cheaper wallets where your not sure how long it will last even though being made with Leather. If you look hard enough at Marshall's like I do you can usually find Polo or Joseph Abboud wallets sometimes and only $20. Thats what I paid for Tommy Bahama wallet. My Calvin Klein wallet only cost me around $10 and its held up pretty well for being not that expensive.

    I picked the RL. I don't like the logo overkill of the BB, and the Coach looked too shiny. I think brown is a much more versatile color.

    Of three I like the RL best. The embossing on the BB and Coach is unattractive, IMO. I also think dark brown provides more versatility for dress and casual wear.
