Re: good credit card wallet.

I'm a big fan of minimal wallets that don't add a lot of bulk to the bulk of the cards/bills I want to carry.
My current favorites are:
The Slimfold Wallet is my everyday. Made of Tyvek so it's super-strong with minimal bulk. Holds 10 cards and some bills comfortably.
For a night out when I only need a couple cards, an ID, and a couple bills, I use the Jimi. Mine holds 4 cards one side and a few bills in the built-in money clip the other side. If you get the JimiX version, the money clip moves to the outside giving you a little more room for cards inside.
For formal occasions, I have a black version of this Martin Margiela card holder. I've yet to find a non-leather wallet I'd want to whip out when I'm wearing a tux or a nice suit, but this manages to be less bulky than the typical bi-fold/tri-fold leather wallet. I load it with a few cards and ID, and maybe a couple of tickets if I'm off to the opera/ballet/whatever.
My Wallet: Amex BCP $10k, Amex Zync NPSL (> 10k), Chase CSP VS $9.2k, C1 Venture VS $5k, Amex SPG $4.5k, Barclaycard Apple V $2k, Walmart (Store) $1.2k, Chase Freedom V $600, BoA Cash Rewards V $500, Best Buy Rewards MC $500
Dream Wallet:Barclaycard Arrival WMC (replace C1 Venture), Amex Platinum (replace Zync eventually), Andrews FCU Global V (chip + PIN for travel). Otherwise, pretty happy with my portfolio now.
