1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I'm looking to buy a credit card holder/wallet and have limited my search down to Loewe (250 euros) or the Santa Croce school in Florence (60 euros) based on function and form.

    I honestly can't tell much of a difference in feel. Do you all think there is that much of a difference at the high end of leather goods in terms of quality?

    That largely depends on the leather employed and the quality of handwork done. You should see at the edges and the stitching if the quality is comparable. If the stitching is very symmetric, and the edges are done well than there should be no difference. Although it is quite difficult to tell the longterm quality of the leather. Loewe however is well known for using good leather. Maybe you should widen your selection as well. 250 € for a wallet without hand stitching is at the upper end of the ladder though.
