    Get it off ebay then spend the rest of your money on something else.

    I paid £40 for my current one, and i think thats too much to pay. If i was minted, then maybe i would buy a wallet for that price.

    Always put coins in my jean pockets... NEVER had a wallet with a coin pouch, apart from an Adidas one when I was really really young.

    ^^^^ coins? as if, this guy only deals with notes, and big ones at that.
    when he goes to a cash machine he always asks for £200, if it dispences anything other than £50s he throws it away straight away.

    £130 for a wallet that's ridiculous :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:...for that kind of price I would expect it to come with a steak dinner or something and to think i felt bad when i spent £15 on my purse :rolleyes:. I don't see the big deal, the inside is ok but the outside looks just like a average priced one you can get for about a 20 quid.

    In responce to your question...how much is too much to spend i personally think that if you're spending more than you have to put in it then it's definitely too much. Therefore if you don't regularly have £130 lolling about which you clearly don't as you had to save for it then i think it's way too much for you to spend.

    Also to whoever said he was paying for quality...that's rubbish...he's paying for a designer name which doesn't always equate to quality it's just a status symbol. Cheap wallets can last you for ages...and even if they didn't he could still probably buy 13 decent ones with the money he spends on that one...which would probably all outlive the £130 wallet.

    Go to any Italian street market. You'll get something at least as good if not better for about £15-20...

    Most market stalls specialising in wallets/men's accessories will, in terms of quality at least.

    Yeah, I just used Italy as an example because it's famous for very high quality leather.

    Are you talking about an actual market in Italy or some rare market places that i'm unaware of in the UK that are Italian themed??

    If you're talking about the former then i think it's slighty excessive to suggest the OP go all that way just for a wallet....although with the £130 he probably could afford to get a cheap return flight to italy and buy one....and still have change left over.

    I mean in Italy, but it's the sort of thing you get when you're there anyway, instead of saying

    "I want a wallet, I'm going to go and buy one at full price". Although as you rightly point out, this particular example is SO expensive, he could go Italy, probably stay a couple of days in a hostel, buy the wallet and get back for less than the one he's looking at.
