    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 have a Prada Saffiano with ID window and I LOVE it. The leather has a really nice texture to it.

    Swaine wallets are surprisingly affordable. around $200 for pure luxury that you will use many times a day.

    Does Ettinger compare favourably? I'm becoming quite attracted to their yellow leathers.

    Yea, PS does make some subtle designs but I think I was attracted on impulse to the quirky cube pattern. The PS holder is still much understated than the excessive branding from other luxury brands however. After actually holding the PS card holder though I was much less impressed and the quality seemed to be lacking a bit (some loose stitches and the "frail" looking leather was paper thin).

    Thanks for the opinions guys! The poll confirmed my own preference and I will go ahead and buy the Swaine card holder and return the Paul Smith. Just saved myself 45 bucks on a better looking wallet and I think this will probably last a bit longer to boot.

    Looks like you've made your decision, but I'll say that your original one wasn't bad at all. All except the PS are conservative. But if you're not comfortable with the PS (if you think it will bug you each time you look at it) then you have to go with one of the others. Which is OK because I don't think you can do any wrong with either of them.

    Valextra is pretty darn sweet. I owned the P Saffiano, but it got stolen,[​IMG] so I can' t recommend it...
