Not designer but I have one of these I bought a good few years ago, and yes it is made out of duct tape. Lifetime warranty as well.

 

Not really my thing.  Smile

Just looked at the fossil site. There are several nice wallets there, that don't cost the earth.

 

Yep cheers, BB just linked me to them, I have found a Fossil one I like.  Cheers

Should always have nice wallet, belt, shoes, pens, cufflinks and watch

Some of the boss stuff is nice

 

I tried about 4 Hugo Boss ones today in House of Fraser and really like them!  I nearly bought one for £107, but thought I would think on it.  Cheers for the link.

I just bought a Ted Baker one in John Lewis today.  It was £50 and today only had 25 per cent off!  £37.50 I paid, and it was real leather!   Smile.

Well done gel, though I still think you'd have got a better deal at TK Maxx. I bought a Patrick Cox for £15, and a Michael Kors for £10, both real leather, both lovely looking wallets, and both decent brands.

But as long as you're happy with your purchase, that's all that counts. :)

RE: I Would Like A New Wallet

The Michael Kors was bought as a back-up, and at £10, why wouldn't you?

They've got loads of good stuff there though, not just wallets.

RE: I Would Like A New Wallet

I'm intrigued. What does a "designer" wallet give you that you wouldn't get from a cheaper alternative?

My wallet cost about a fiver; and there was more left inside as a consequence. It's holding together well many years later.

It is a good point, I don't normally buy designer stuff to be honest but when it comes to a wallet, I do tend to like it to be posh!  Like when you get you cash out, it is wrapped in something really nice!  Like you mean business if you like.  Smile

 

I think I might be having second thoughts now though, I can't seem to get all my cards in!
