Looking for a general purpose wallet, black preferable. I want a slim one I can carry in my front pocket. With at least 2 to 3 slots for cc, 1 for ID and business cards as well. Any suggestions?

I bought a nice credit card case from Launer over the internet last year. I thought the royal warrant was a bit ostentatious, but it quickly faded to a nicely patinated dullness. They offer some nice wallets as well.

I have one from fossil. It's black and leather with three slots in the front. It's got a magnetic clip in the back for cash. It also has a slot in the middle for more cards. I got it as a graduation gift several years ago. It's one of the best gifts I've gotten.

I picked up a Paul Smith card case a couple of months ago. It has two slots for cards on either side, and a space in the center for cards as well. The outer pockets seem a little large for credit cards at first, but once you fill it, everything holds nicely. Even stuffed with cards, it's still incredibly slim.

Best of all, there's a naked lady on it. That and that alone sold me on the wallet.

My only complaint with the wallet is that the the outer pockets aren't staggered on the inside. So, when you put a card in the 1st slot, the top 1/4 of the card sticks out, making it easy to grab. When you put a card in the 2nd slot, the card is completely hidden...it's hard to explain, maybe I'll take a picture. I'm going to see if I can't somehow seal the 2nd slot near the bottom, to hold the card up higher in the wallet.

I felt the leather and workmanship were very poor when I handled them in person (which is a shame).

I would say that it is worth it if I was comparing it to Dior Homme, or Tod's. The construction isn't as good as my old Dunhill wallet, but it's actually holding up quite well. My biggest issue is that the leather doesn't feel nearly as good as my previous wallet. It's almost waxy. However, like I said, it is breaking in well, especially considering that it spends a lot of time in selvege jeans, which manage to destroy everything I put in the pockets.

That said, I put a premium on things that have something special or unique hidden in them. So, I can justify spending an extra $50 or so on a wallet just to see some bold stripes and a naked lady every time I pull out my credit card.

I was looking at it yesterday and it was showing not available.
I was able to order it this morning.
Of course it hasn't shipped yet so who knows if I'll actually get it.
Going by past experience, Barneys online ordering can be kind of flakey.

Staying home sick today has been rather expensive.
I ordered the card case, the naked lady cuff links, and a striped card case.
