I have a few different card holders that I switch up from time to time, most are pretty inexpensive. Just need to make sure you only take out what you need that day and not hoard cards you don't use.

Good suggestion but I should have mentioned I'm after something low bulk, ideally a card case with a bit of room for receipts, pills and a rubber Laughing out loud

A.P.C. make one called Stefan that is the ideal format but I don't trust the quality of their leather goods.

Use an SLP mono cardholder at the moment.

Want a Moynat soon. Like the Hender Scheme envelope ones as well

If I were to buy a new one today, it'd be the Guernesey.

I had a look at these but honestly not sure how they work in practice. Also Hermès is just sooo eye eateringly expensive.

Like the idea of simple cardholders but they always end up overstuffed.

so pikey Laughing out loud

whenever I meet someone who doesnt use a wallet it sort of unnerves me "this is a man who does not give a solitary fuck"

A cardholder with 6 slots and an open top\side i think it's the best solution.

Honestly I don't need anything else than my "basic" cards and a open slot for receipts and a 50/100€ cash.
Only carry my wallet if I have a backpack or winter jackets with extra pockets where i can put it.

8 card wallet. pretty standard.

i think it has also been mentioned in here but should definitely be said again - coin pouches in wallets are for fucking nan kids

That says far more about your own views than the 'man who does not give a solitary fuck'.

Any suggestions for a cardholder that can carry a small amount of cash? was looking at the 'classic' Comme billfold one but only has enough space for two cards.

Anyone want a CDG wallet in the bigger size, brown leather? This one https://shop.doverstreetmarket.com/cdg-classic-leather-brown-sa2100

Brand new in its box, happy to sling it to a regular for a decent amount under retail rather than have it sitting in the cupboard

MMM ones are nice - quite subtle, 6 card holders and 2 bill sections - usually in the sale also

just cant imagine getting a round in at a bar with a cdg wallet. "let me just unzip my purse and get some coins out"

I have a smaller one in green - gets far far more compliments than previous wallets, girls love 'em. Still kind of agree with you but love it at the same time.

What do you do with your coins? Throw them at poor people?
