    I need a new everyday wallet. It should be reasonably slim and have lots of space for credit cards. My present one is similar to this one from Piquadro (except that the credit card slots are vertical on both sides, there are no blue edges, and there is a disguised zipper pocket along the side -- difficult to describe): http://www.piquadro.com/it/it/collez...?g=m&f=PORTUOM I need to change it because it's falling apart (the lack of seams on the edges make it look sleek, but it detracts from durability). It's a more modern design than most of my other stuff. So I'm open to either something design-ish like my present one, or something more classic. Or I might just buy the same one again. Edit: it should be available in the UK and/or in Italy. Thanks.

    I've been using a Tumi wallet like this one for the past six months and it has served me quite well.

    I haven't had it long enough to really comment on its durability, but thus far it's showing no signs of wear...

    I recently picked up a slim Valextra wallet and love it.

    Mulberry all the way. Sales starts soon June 25 IIRC, not sure if it's on the wallets.

    I have had two plain black ones from coach, the latest was like $50 from the outlet and appears identical to the other which was twice as much at the regular store...they are cheap and last longer than others I have had in the past. Then again I am not into spending big money on something that holds my money.

    Thanks. Mulberry would be the max I would like to spend, unless I find something really extraordinary.

    Trust me, I've searched the entire internet. Mulberry is the holy grail.

    Incidentally if you ever want the best military style duffle, check out Rapid Dominance.

    I find LV to be repulsive with their patterned exterior. Doesn't even look like leather.

    I'm trying to decide, credit card holder or traditional wallet. Anyone have thoughts?

    If you dont have money clip, then get the wallet. IF you do have a money clip, or dont carry cash around, get the card holder. It's that simple.

    Dunhill wallets are very nice. When i first bought mine i was freaking out when i got home because i thought id spend way to much for something i could buy for a lot less. However the quality soon shone through.
