    i onno but i think Louis Vuitton credit card case will make u look more professional and successful

    LOL.

    In any case, most of the card cases shown so far in this thread are a bit boring IMO.
    My favourite (actually, my only) one is an orange alligator one by Tardini. A bit "flashy" maybe, but I like it. However, I am not sure to what extent it makes me look professional and successful.

    Nice, I see several good ones. I would probably choose green or blue, or burgundy, or red...

    What do they cost? They look a bit like my Tardini one which cost me EUR 100. Now, Tardini offered an enormous range of colours, and it took me quite some time to decide on the orange one.

    For me, at least 2 pockets per side are a necessity. Coach gets a bad rap, but their water buffalo items are pretty nice, IMO. This is what the British Tan card case will look like after a few years of use: [​IMG] I picked that one up at one of their outlets, I believe for about $20. I see nothing wrong it, either in terms of materials or craftsmanship. Mine was recently run over by a car but remains in good shape.

    There is nothing wrong with it. But I find it a bit "boring". I firmly favour a more flashy look. Alligator and fancy colours. I normally keep my credit card case away from being run over by cars.

    How about putting yur credit cards in your wallets or in your jacket's pocket?

    The all credit card cases look affected anyway...

    How will a Louis Vuitton card case make someone appear more "professional and successful" than another person who owns an unbranded card case? Do you equate an article of clothing with a European designer logo with prestige? Don't listen to this guy. He has very gaudy taste. Look at his blog. (http://sohighfashion.blogspot.com/) He is a self-professed "noveau riche." All he seems to own is Hermes, Gucci, Armani, Prada, and Louis Vuitton stuff emblazoned with ugly logos. I'm sorry to pick on you, but a lot of your posts encourage people to buy certain brands because celebrities wear them. For example: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...6&postcount=11 http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...0&postcount=28 http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...40&postcount=7 http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...8&postcount=12 I wonder if you are for real, or just someone getting a good laugh trolling.

    hahaha My opinion: I like the Tumi out of the ones you selected. I also like the Coach with the money clip that someone mentioned. It's a card holder however. I don't care what anyone says, a 20$ unbranded one at target will do the job. Don't waste your time even thinking about this...

    Tumi looks like plastic in that photo. Way too much logo on the other two. Of the three, though, I'd go with the Alden.

    I am not a big fan of any of those. If I had to pick it would be the Tumi.
    I use a vintage Coach wallet. Though, I just bought a couple Jack Spade wallets that I might switch to.

    Everyone, you owe it to yourselves to click on the blog in his sig. It's a real gem. This guy actually lists the prices of things he purchases/consumes, and photographs his receipts. He's like vox, just less baller, and a lot smaller.

    RL used to do a great one that was about 1/4in taller than most card cases, meaning you had two (or was it 3?) pockets on each side and the middle was tall enough to hold a bill folded over once without it sticking out. Sadly, I don't see it on their site anymore, but perhaps a store will have it. For something a little more colorful I just noticed their tartan leather one, which looks pretty cool.

    Get the lighter shell colours - it looks better. The #8 shell will look light in the creases and takes scratches poorly.


    This is kinda cool but where do the credit cards go?
