Help picking out a nice credit card case for my wife

My wife has always opted for cheap credit card cases that need replaced frequently. Why, I don't know, she puts them in Prada purses, but whatever. She has asked me to find her a "really nice one" after the latest episode of one disintegrating in her purse and leaving cards floating around. I would really like some suggestions of credit card cases/wallets that people have found nice looking, functional and reliable. She keeps bills in a separate money clip like thing that she likes, this would be for cards; credit, insurance, drivers license, etc. I should add that she has a lot of cards, which makes it a bit difficult. Thanks for any suggestions.

Here's one

If she likes something unique, I like this RFID blocking one--from Etsy (website that specializes in one-of-a kind, handcrafted items).

There are different designs.

Only drawback is it does not hold very many cards.

I love Tumi's products. They are timeless and I have had several wallets for many years - the only reason I change them is because I like to rotate them for a bit of variety.

Have a look at Lodis or Wallit

Lodis has a refined classic business-y line (ebags etc) and a fashionable line (their own website). Wallit specializes in colourful leathers and designs favour the card-heavy.

What style are you looking for?

Thanks. I think she just wants one that will hold a lot of cards and not fall apart. I have talked her into getting two, one for 14-16 cards and one for the rest; as long has the one for the smaller number, 14-16, has multiple pockets so she can sort them a bit. I will take a look at these.

I've had a Lodis one for years - has held up really well.

I acquired two fan out card holders from M0851 last year. The clear sleeves fan out for quick access and the leather is beautiful. They are held together with a sturdy nut and bolt. Although there are only 10 pockets you can add 3-4 extra ones before it becomes too bulky. I put my most frequently used cards in it and keep the rest in a separate holder. Seasonal colours are available in-store that you won't see online. There's a New York location and others internationally.
