    For a man who dressed as boring as me, I am strangely attracted to this double sided scarf. What do you think of this ? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    not sure if this goes here, but I didnt want to start a new thread just for my question.

    What do you guys think about the following, I plan to use them to carry 2 credit cards and 2 Ids. I know that one is a card case and not intended for credit cards, but does it really matter?

    I dont like wallets because they give me a one inch raise, so that is not an option.

    I like the second one and then the third the most.

    I like the scarf. It doesn't wow me because of the brown but it's different and I can see it working in some instances. It might just what a conservative dresser needs to push the boundaries ever so slightly. [​IMG]

    Go for the Brioni, hands down. The Burberry is maybe too styling and obvious Burberry. Brioni is classic and understated.

    I've always debated between a card case and wallet. My latest foray has been back into wallets, but again the 1" raise is a literal pain in the butt. If I wore suits all the time a breast wallet might work better, but that's not practical for me.

    Anyway a card case is a happy medium, and I think it looks cool to carry a bit of cash loose like.

    #2 Sportcoat. Grey is way more versatile than brown.

    thanks for the reply, I think that is what I am going to go with. I like the Burberry one but as you said it seems too much of a cry for attention. I currently have a Polo RL check card holder and it works just fine but I am hoping that the Brioni one feels better. I am hoping that it does because there is a huge price difference between the two. I considered the crocodile one as well, but from the little that I have read, I realized that it is not rare crocodile skin and that would defeat the purpose in my opinion.

    Really ? A lot of people would strongly disagree with your assertion. There was a big debate over this but I can't find the thad right now [​IMG]
