    Where to buy a quality wallet?

    I usually buy $20-30 leather wallets at the mall or tj maxx. They are good for about 1 year and then they fall apart.

    Anyone know of any leather wallets that are high quality? Maybe a holster maker makes wallets also?

    Think me not too foo-foo, please. But one of the best wallets I've ever owned was made by Coach. A black double billfold, made in water buffalo calf skin... Or maybe the regular leather version, I can't recall exactly.

    +1. I carry a Coach Water Buffalo slim card case. My wife and kids got me one as a gift a few years ago and it's still going strong. I'm not one to get caught up with brand names but this thing is very well made. You can find them on eBay for $35-40 shipped NIB. I don't like big wallets and prefer the size of a front pocket type case. It will hold a bunch of cash (when I have it ), my CWP, my DL, a CC, ATM card and in the inside pouch I keep stuff like my motorcycle reg./ins. info and an extra check. That's basically all I need on my person all the time. You could easily squeeze a few more cards in there if needed.

    Here are two tips on helping wallets last longer:

    Do not stuff them too full of papers, etc.

    If you reverse the wallet every day you will find it doesn't take set shaped like your butt. It really works.

    I have a Tumi wallet I purchased for appx $100 over seven years ago, and it still looks almost new. When you pay a little more it costs less in the long run.

    Here's mine...

    Black Money Clip Wallet | Overstock.com

    It's less bulky, you'll learn to appreciate that, and it's half of your budget.

    bosca, I've had two in the last 25 years. They are slim and durable yet nice. Like Martini 13 says quality costs. I recall seeing a billboard it said: "quality doesn't cost, it pays". Same is true for guns. Second on the Tumi line of product too. I use their luggage; top shelf!

    Looks like a great site and a good deal. Free return shipping is always great.

    I couldn't find any info on that site from resellerratings. Is it a reliable and safe site?

    Skip the wallet, switch to a money clamp.

    I switched a couple years ago, and converted my Dad and Bro as well.

    These ain't real cheap but I carry all Porsche Design leather. My current wallet I've been carrying for about 15 years. It won't pass for new but it's still on great shape.

    All kinds of different models come up on Ebay too. A lot of new old stock items are listed. I was going to put in a link on an Ebay search but I can't log in on my end for some reason.

    What's wrong with a butt-shaped wallet?

    I like to think of it as custom-fit.

    My wife asked me last night if it was time for a new wallet, I said I was just getting this one broke in.

    I know you said leather but if you're not totally set on it, Maxpedition makes several versions/styles of wallet and they are bombproof.
