INFEASIBLE: Wallets that slide and collapse and whatever the fuck
I guess one could call this latest Frankenstein from Entermodal a “portwallio”. I’ll stick to calling it ugly, blucky, difficult to handle, and tacky; naturally Men.Style raves about it. Don’t you let me catch you holding one, unless you’re returning it to its rightful place in the trash.
Feasible: Bifold made of kangaroo leather

Now this, THIS is a piece of awesome. I loves kangaroo leather and the color is just rich and attention-grabbing without being flashy in the slightest. Even the logo is tastefully placed and blended into the material. Anyone wanna get me an early birthday present? Seriously, I blew too much money at the bar last night. :(
INFEASIBLE: Wallets with money clips attached
(From Round Table Gifts)
The merging of money clip and the wallet is a god awful idea, at least from an aesthetic perspective.
Feasible: Smart money clips

If you’re really gunho about the whole best of both worlds business, then go with a smart money clip. Not only can you use it to fasten your money, but you can also store your driver’s license and credit cards on the back of it. Nifty.
INFEASIBLE: Wallet + Money Clip + Credit Card case +…
There is this phenomenon in fashion called the Will to Over-Accessorize, and none of you should get pulled into it. This warning extends to even your wallet. Don’t have, on top of a three fold wallet, a credit card case, a business card case, a money clip and photo insert with pictures of your dog or, heaven-forbid, your grandchildren. Not only does it make you look like a fool when you have to cycle through all that shit to get to get your coin purse, it makes your pants pockets swell and look lumpy.
Feasible: Just a wallet and money clip

Keep it simple (my usual advice). These two items aren’t exactly high-class merchandise, but they look nice and they won’t break the bank. And seriously guys, what’s the point in buying a really expensive wallet with a gigantic gay logo on it? How often does one see someone else’s wallet and form strong impressions about the person as a result of what they keep their money in?
