    A 20 pound wallet would serve exactly the same purpose.
    Difference in quality and style... The last wallet I bought (before my current one) was £17 and didnt last for more than 9 months. And I always take care of my stuff.

    Paul Smith stuff is really nice, that wallet especially. I say buy it if you have the spare cash and you like it. Just don't lose it, I always lose my purses because I'm rubbish, so I never buy nice purses anymore.

    Nothing wrong with spending a sum such as that on a wallet. You have to make sure its a slim one. You dont want to buy a wallet that makes it seem that you are walking around with a dildo in your pocket.

    btw did you get the idea for that wallet from Mens Health? i swear i saw it there this month ...looks good either way (not keen at all on the £100 one though!)

    T'is alot of money, but if you want it and got your heart set on it, would be hard to forget about it / find an alternative.

    I don't like the one Antics posted, the one with the signature stripes is far too loud, it's just screaming out "look at me, I can afford expensive things" while the other one is more understated. Also, the Mini design is quite personal to me, so that's why I like it. I think I'm guna buy it on Monday!

    I dont like the second one that was posted, the stripes were too much, the other one looked pretty cool. If you've saved up for it, go for it.

    I would rather buy a cheap wallet and have money to spend on clothes, I suggest you purchase one which is around £20 which would probably be sufficient then you could spent the other £110 on something much more productive!

    I have only ever spent £50 on a wallet/purse. it's one of those ones with the little dog on, tan leather. it's quite nice, but I'm so worried about getting marks on it that I hardly ever use it. so I could never ever spent £100+ on one! I'd never take it out of the house for fear of ruining it.

    So you got ripped off then when you spent £17 and now you are going to be ripped off again by spending £120+ :rolleyes: .

    When I do eventually get it, I'm quite sure it'll last me for 5+ years. As I said, its an investment in my opinion.

    Inphinite, what do you put in your wallet besides cash/paper notes of sorts/cards that could cause your wallet to fall apart so quickly? Also, what material was it?

    Im sure Ive seen that wallet in TK Maxx a lot cheaper??

    £130 though is well pricey IMO, but if you like it then get it
    :confused:

    So have I!

    My two cents - wallets are for putting money in, not spending it on . In all honesty, do you really want it? Who's going to notice anyways, unless you purposely draw attention to it? If I were you, I'd spend it on a nice bag instead.

    But if you want to, go ahead. It is a gorgeous wallet.

    There's no "too much" I don't think. If you have the money and want to spend it on a nice wallet it doesn't matter what it costs.

    However, having said that, were I to spend that much on a wallet, I'd make sure it's one that'll last. That one's cool but I can imagine you'll get bored of it quite quickly so I'd buy a plainer one. It doesn't really look very expensive either, and whilst you don't want to be ostentatious I wouldn't particularly want to spend a lot of money on a wallet and have people think it came from Gadget! For £20 more you could get a really nice Mulberry one that'd last you forever. But, if you like it, £130 isn't all that much in the long term so you should go for it.

    Condoms... :p:

    It was leather, but just an isht quality. I got it as a gift, like... didn't buy it myself.
