    So you don't tip much. Watch out, that waitress will put Visine in your coffee.

    I have always used tri folds and its not so much getting scrapped up or bad leather. But they always get fat and stretch out which isnt a huge issue they just dont look as fresh as when I first started using them.

    Believe it or not there is usually a line for 'Tip' on the bill when you pay with a CC.

    I bought a very nice wallet for less than $60.

    Yes there's not much more a wallet can be used for, other than taking money and card out and putting them back in.

    Regardless of how much you use your wallet, it sees far less wear and tear than shoes do. For example, regardless of how many times you take it out to "tip", it doesn't have to deal with the elements of the weather - the slush, the rain, the sleet, the snow, etc. like shoes do. That was SG's point initially.

    I have an excellent wallet in caramel suede. Handstitching, nice, soft suede and practical. That for a very reasonable price. Especially now when it is on sale. I am actually thinking about buying a second one.

    I'm also in the process of buying a new wallet. I have narrowed my choice between two candidates a card holder or a bifold one:

    I don't have more than 4 cards to carry with me so the card holder should have sufficient space. I'm not sure if a cardholder is sturdy enough for every day use. Color will be black. Any pros or cons between these two?

    I've never been dissapointed with any of my Ettinger purchases. I might have to track down this wallet for myself as I love the bright tan interior. I love classic pieces which are a little different.

    I can't imagine going back to a regular wallet after carrying all my stuff in a card holder for the past 20 years. Big wallets are bulky and ruin the line of most jackets and look silly in back pockets. Just say no to loyalty cards.

    yeah, once you escape from the bulky wallet you never look back. for me the money clip and cardholder are the move. I can keep the small card holder for any larger purchases and keep spending cash conveniently in the money clip. a decent money clip commands respect and envy in checkout lanes/starbucks etc. small luxury worth having. chicks dig the money clip/cash.
