    Happy Sunday everyone!

    I am in the market for a new wallet, or at least the "want" for a new wallet. I have been looking at Tumi's Alpha, Delta and Monaco bifold and card holder wallets.
    Does anyone have any experience with Tumi's quality for accessories?
    I do like the understated, utilitarian look to them, as I really don't like flash.

    Any and all input would be appreciated!

    Quality is fine, but you are paying a premium for the brand name. For great quality without the marketing budget mark up, take a look at wallets at No Man Walks Alone.

    any particular recommendations? I see a bit of Ettinger wallets , La Portegna. I've heard of Ettinger and Frank Clegg, but not La Portegna.

    Never had any of the 3 wallets…anyone with experience with these wallets want to chime in?

    Quality is 'enh.' Definitely sufficient for daily life for a few years, but not the most luxurious or durable stuff on earth. Tumi is mass market stuff at a premium price point.
    I would suggest committing to something a bit more luxurious or elegant with full grain leather or something even more rugged and utilitarian with cordura or titanium accents.

    Tumi's quality has gone downhill in recent years. You can get better quality leather, made in America, and for a lower price elsewhere.
