    I would love to have one of those, but for now, my Bottega Veneta will do the job while I'm in college.

    Nothing fancy, just a card holder. Always canvas. Right now I am sporting a brushstroke camo version from Herschel. I must say, I am a big fan of the cashless society. Can’t recall the last time I had actual cash in my pockets.

    Personally I've always preferred the feel of leather to canvas, but that is good for you.

    Currently a simple, brown wallet with just enough compartments for cards, bills, small change etc. manufactured by a local brand (but also with international shipping options and an official website) specialized on genuine leather goods

    Yes, even with jeans. Where else would I put my pocket square?

    I like this a lot. I wear a hand made calfskin card holder I purchased from the Lodge in NYC.

    One of my regretful sales a couple of years ago... I had a Bottega Veneta crocodile cardholder with 6 card slots and a central compartment that I usually kept empty. It was such a beautiful piece, and the glossy black crocodile always looks so sleek when you pull it out to grab a credit card. Sometimes it is nice to carry a more minimalist assortment of cards than your typical bifold.

    LOOKING FOR ADVICE. I still use my Bottega Veneta intrecciato calfskin bifold daily. I'm looking to obtain (again) a cardholder with the following criteria:
    - 6 card slots preferred, but will consider anything
    - exotic skin (leaning toward crocodile)
    - reputable designer house/ brand name

    What do you recommend as the best type of skin and the best card holder? Thanks.

    It might just be me, but I don’t think of wallet branding as all that critical, nor construction all that variable. I mean, I like my LV, which was a gift from my wife, but before that I carried a no-name stingray wallet that looked cool and wore like iron. I carried it in a designer bag, where I think you can (though not necessarily do) get more value in construction, materials, design, and wow factor from a designer.

    Anyway, I’m all about the shagreen, which is a great texture and resilient leather that doesn’t cost like gator or croc. YMMV.

    Money clips mainly. Haven’t carried a wallet in years. Most are too bulky and I’m not a fan of the resulting bulge.

    Hermès probably makes the highest quality leather goods I have seen, but at a price. For a more “budget friendly” brand Montblanc makes very nice leather products at a fraction of the price. For canvas my fav is Fauré Lepage. They are just simply impressive. Excellent handmade work and super durable. Goyard is excellent as well but at a higher cost. A sleeper brand is Loewe which is very well made, not as known and a little cheaper, but to me, on par with LV for quality. I like LV too of course as I own a few

    One of my colleagues at work has one of those. It certainly turns heads!
