Accessories, Card Cases, Wallets, and Money Clips

What do you guys recommend in the way of card cases? I'm looking for something relatively inexpensive (<$100 or so) and with basic 2 slots on each side and a slot in the middle. My usual go-to is a Coach slim:

I have another Coach model now but its about 2 years old and starting to fall apart.

At that price point, you pretty much can go with any reputable brand. They are all made in the same couple factories generally and you will get a solid product. You can score last season's Dunhill or the like of eBay or Gilt at a good savings.

Here's a current model Dunhill that's about 100 GBP, so 150 US.

If you wanted to go to about twice the price point, I can recommend Peter Nitz out of Zurich. Everything is made to order. It does take a little while because of this, but really nice stuff. I got a gator card case last year I love. The Swiss Franc has been all over the map since they unpegged it though, so the price could be significantly different.

So, talk to me about briefcases. Going to be graduating and retiring the ol' messenger bag soon.
 
Depends on what you're looking for in form, function, and materials.

Crap, it's going to be that difficult? I just thought the Internet would tell me what was approved for #menswear and Igentry, and be done with it.

Something that costs 100 times more than it should. Possibly made from reindeer hide.
 
So its seems that I've lost my money clip (along with the money contained within, sadly) and I need to get a new one. I also need a new card case, as my Coach baseball glove leather case is starting to fall apart. Opinions welcome on options. I'm open to a thin wallet as well if it is interesting.

For the card case, it needs to have at least 4 slots, plus storage in the center. The money clip has to be non-magnetic.
 
How much are you willing to drop? I have a Prada credit case that has 4 card slots with a middle compartment. It's slim and handy for cards and the occasional cash. anustart has a Bottega Venetta case that I really like as well. I think you can find something well made for around 150

I'd like to spend less but I might be willing to splurge.
 
I don't know about quality of Coach items. I have had mine for 7 years and washed accidentally twice, and the stitching has held up well as well as the leather.

Gucci has a cardcase with a clip attached, but it's about 350 if I recall.

Bluefly is probably your best bet if you want to buy a brand card case,.

Its not bad but its getting long in the tooth. Probably about 4 years. I'm looking at Gustin but they only have certain models with enough slots. Definitely not spending $350 on a card case.
 
The designer pieces' prices are inflated outrageously. I use a money clip wallet like this one: Other Products after trying a card case/money clip combo. I like it the best for a slim solution. You can choose the leather, color, and get it without their insignia as well.

That's pretty neat. Trouble is it doesn't have enough storage. I need to have at least 4 credit card slots and I like the center slot to hold shit like my insurance cards.
 
I have seen a resurgence breast wallet recently. Green Hermes maybe?

Unless you carry a wad of cash plus 20 credit cards, I think card cases are your best friends. This is what I have

That's actually not that bad.

I agree, which is why I'm looking for another one.
 
Another option you have is a phonecase/cardcase hybrid. But if you lose one, you lose the other.
 
That Ferragmo leather is ugly as fuck.

Look for pre-Gucci basket-weave Bottega Venetta cardcases. It might take some work to find one, but you will not regret it
 
Last time I went to the Ferragamo store in Chicago, I handled some of their shoes and wallets, the quality does not match the price.
 
Rambo - why not the much coveted custom green hermes breast wallet?
 
You no want to be Foo? Marry a rich Jewish girl and baller kop?
