Wallet recommendation for my credit cards

I'm looking for a nice wallet under $100.

 

Tired of these $30-$40 wallets chewing up my cards.

 

Heres what I am looking for:

 

Bi-fold, atleast 6-8 card holders. FULL LEATHER.

 

My problem is that I can not find a FULL leather wallet. They all look leather on the surface but the in pocket seems are made of a fabric that chews up the cards.

 

What I am talking about is, if you dig your finger into one of the slots that holds a card, they need to be leather all the way through, on both sides. LEATHER EVERYWHERE.

 

Any recommendations?

I suggest old school like my Grandfother did, fold your cash over your credit cards then put a rubberband around the cash.  His credit cards never had a mark on them, no friction, lol!

Re: Wallet recommendation for my credit cards

If you're open to getting a wallet in some funky color or leather texture, you might look at clearance online stuff from Coach. They have a few things under $100, though the selection improves if you go to $120 pretax or so. The same I expect is true for other manufacturers.

Yoder leather, was on my list for maybe my next wallet.

Re: Wallet recommendation for my credit cards

I went through the same thing not too long ago. I gave up. Ended up with a lacoste 3 slot billfold. Also picked up a matching 6 slot card holder that I keep in it.

Ashland Leather's Johnny the Fox in chromexel. I have one of their Fat Herbie's and it is a great quality wallet. I have had it for 3 years now with no complaints when cheapie wallets were lasting me a year or two. Made in Chicago with Horween leather.

Have you tried Etsy? If you find the right maker, you can customize everything, down to the color of the stitch.

Re: Wallet recommendation for my credit cards

I had the same problem. I got a Croft & Borrow from Kohls. The wallet is not leather everywhere, but the fabric they use doesn't chew up my cards.

 

I am very picky about my Amex Platinum and my CSR. They scratch easily. This wallet has kept them looking good.

Funny, this is now called a minimalist wallet. I had a Wally Pull Tab that is very similar to this. I found out that CCs will chew up another CC the worst.
