I wonder would they be a good purchase for around $100 and is there huge difference in quality between brands (haven’t done any research on cardholders)?

    Quality of the designer ones are all meh. You're mostly paying for the logo. TBH, I think they're kinda tacky.

    If you want a really nice cardholder, Chester Mox makes them to the same standard as Hermes. Tons of other ones that are bit more discrete and good looking without screaming "IM A FANCY DUDE"

    I have a Margiela one since 2015 and it still is in perfect shape today. I use it every day, so I am more than happy with the purchase.

    Same. Aside from a few scratches it is pretty much perfect.

    Nonnative Dweller 97/3 denim. They look good but fit pretty snug, Will they stretch out with wear?

    I was tempted by those on Mr. Porter. But passed since they looked so slim. I imagine they will stretch a bit in the waist, but not sure about the thigh or leg in general. I would only keep if they are comfortable straight away.
