    I am in the market for a card case, and have decided on three that I like. I currently have a LV damier wallet but want something smaller and more portable.

    My Choices Are:

    Hermès Porquerolles in Black http://usa.hermes.com/leather/small-leather-goods/card-cases/porquerolles-card-case-15474.html

    Dior Homme in Black http://www.dior.com/couture/en_us/fashion-accessories/men/leather-goods/business-card-holders

    or

    Tom Ford in Grey Lizard http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/p/To...cat203100cat261003cat394713cat394709cat394711

    Quality-wise where would each stand?

    Actual leather-working quality (of the 3 and IMHO): 1. Hermes 2. Tom Ford 3. Dior I personally really like the Hermes, but the others offer a little more capacity and functionality.

    Why don't you up the budget a little and get a TF croc?

    Malford -Do you know how much approx. it would cost? I can't seem to find any pictures of one online, if you could find one that would also help. I would love a croc card case.

    You'll be hard pressed to find one online. You can call one of the TF boutiques.

    The Hermes is nice, I recently looked at one when I was in New York visiting the Hermes store and was tempted but got a scarf and a bowtie instead. I have this card case...
