Thank you for your suggestions!
So far I really like this Tumi wallet:
and the Johnston & Murphy Hipster wallet that SwitftTone suggested. Question for you sir - I could really use all of the card slots of this wallet, but I've never had a wallet this tall, does it feel too big and/or too thick compare to a slim-ish wallet? I keep my wallet in the front pocket, will I have trouble fitting it there? Thanks!
I've been doing research on this for quite a while now and so far you guys have been the most helpful, thanks! I hadn't even heard of these companies until now.

It was a gift but boy does it smell and feel good.
Did it feel even better after you checked the price?

I remember one day waiting in line in a department store. As the young woman in front of me reached the counter, she unfolded her wallet, which displayed a fan-shaped line-up of her four visa cards more colorful than a dancing peacock. Why on earth would anyone get all visa cards? Maybe she got a discount at some stores, I don't know. Or maybe she urgently felt she wouldn't be part of a group of fellow young people until her dress code was complete.
What is it with women and their handbags, purses and wallets by the way? I have been wondering about that for years. And now I finally looked into it. A Handbag Study Reveals British Women Are Most Purse-Obsessed and that "American women don't rank too far behind in second place." Do you too feel that "A girl's handbag is more than just an accessory. It's a sartorial companion"?

Jumping in the boys' club here.
All of the wallets posted have been for men, but I spent two weeks scouring the Internet for the perfect wallet, and I'm extremely picky.
So for any women who are checking out this thread (or for men who want a tip on a great wallet to buy your wife) --
I wanted a very fashionable wallet with MANY credit card slots. This was especially difficult for me to find because I prefer the bifold/trifold style to the accordion style, and 75-80% of women's designer wallets are only available in accordion style.
I finally found this fantastic Rebecca Minkoff wallet to fulfill my criteria (it actually has 22 credit card slots! -- it only says 16, but there are 6 hidden bonus slots!). I was a bit iffy about it when I ordered it (I thought I might prefer the external appearance of this Milly wallet, which is accordion style) -- but when it arrived in person, I was far more pleased than I expected to be. My Rebecca Minkoff wallet is made of high quality ostrich leather in a classy grey tone and feels extremely nice to the touch. The detail along the edges is gorgeous -- stiff edge of a zipper appearance, but durable and well-built. I have all 22 card slots filled, and the wallet still maintains an ideal shape; it closes completely and does not appear "stuffed." Also, a removable zipped pouch sits nicely in a compartment under the bottom portion and adds a nice touch.

I'm talking about an actual wallet. I've had mine forever and it doesn't hold that many cards, so I've kept some of my cards where cash is supposed to go and I recently decided to get a new one, but after looking for an hour on amazon I couldn't really find something I like, they are either too thick, or I don't like the design or the color or the leather or the brand, I am superpicky about this lol. So I figured I would ask you, what wallet do you use and why do you like it? I am talking up to $50, but I would be willing to spend a bit more if it is raelly a terrific product.
I saw a pretty slick one at a Coach outlet while picking up a gift for my wife and debated buying it. It was real slim, and didn't hold a lot of cards, but even with the discount was about 80 bucks so I declined.
But this is an awesome thread... I'll probably end up buying one of the ones you all suggested.
