Gel, go to TKMaxx.
There's loads of different makes/labels, you'll be able to handle the wallets and feel the quality, and wether or not they'll get all of your cards in, and I doubt there's any over £25.
The one in the shopping centre is ok, but we find the one in Bletchley has better stock, and more choice.
It's upstairs on the right, amongst the gadgets etc.
LOUNGE: Panasonic TX-P50GT50 (is poorly) / Panasonic DMP-BDT120 / Yamaha RX-A2020 / Q Acoustics 2020i (front) / Q Acoustics 2020 (rear) / Q Acoustics 2000Ci / Q Acoustics1000Si / Roksan Radius 5.2 (is poorly, so Pro-ject Debut III) / Sky HD / WD My Book Live / Tacima CS-929
BEDROOM: Samsung LE32C450 / Sony BDP-S360 / Echostar HDS-600RS / Netgear WNCE2001
Will do. I rarely go to Bletchley though, but I have just remembered where the one up the centre is! Bletchley is quite close to me though, I am near Caldecotte Lakes.
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad Air & iPhone 4S.
I say Bletcheley, it's just down from Ikea, next to Sports Direct, Next etc., very near the Tesco.
Just looked at a map, you're very close. Anyway, up to you, but it's worth a look.
I got you! Yep, I can pop in there quite easily. I will do.
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.
I think I might be having second thoughts now though, I can't seem to get all my cards in!
That sounds like an invitation to get mugged to me.
I use an elastic band ( the posh red ones the RM use, mind) myself.
You avoid being mugged by having all your notes on show when you take them out of your pocket?

One ten pound note wrapped in a frayed elastic band is unlikely to get him mugged.

I've got a ben sherman leather wallet which i bought for under a tenner at argos, £7 i think which i've had for about 7,8,9 years which i am very happy with, if i was to buy another wallet today i would probably go for this pierre cardin for £6.49 .

Why would you use an elastic band with a tenner?
Anyway, I need one, and I like a substantial, secure coin purse, as I sit all the time so putting change in my pockets would be silly. I'm probably going for this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SOFT-REAL-LEATHER-MENS-WALLET-CREDIT-CARD-BIFOLD-NWT-/190807845190?pt=UK_Purses_Wallets&var=490140343557&hash=item2c6d08a946#ht_1446wt_1161
Never been keen on wallets with a coin section - I always think you look a bit like a little old lady fishing around for 50p in there. Coins travel loose in my pocket and the wallet holds cash and cards. One side holds "not my cards" - so joint account debit card (which is identical to my personal account debit card), work Amex, security pass and club/nectar cards. Right side is "my cards", so personal debit, personal credit cards and donor card.
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
I agree, but it's needs must I'm afraid. I want one with a zip along the length of the wallet, which minimizes the little old lady factor somewhat. Anyway, last time I used that phrase on here, people who are hard-of-thinking got me into trouble, and I'm not helping the OP, so I'm off.
I think I am going to need to check these out in person again (not that it worked last time for me though!), but I already have one I need to take back, I don't want two! Next stop Blectchley, Marks and Spencer and debenhams I have spotted some on.
Just saw this deal which can't be bad:
But not prepared to risk it! I really need to get hold of one and stick my cards in it.
