Credit Card Holder 101

  1. I've had a few TPFers ask me about my little accessories lately...a few about the monogram credit card holder and pics as well. Since I am lazy, I will post a little "101" thing here :p

    Okay, so, it costs $125 on Elux, but since Elux doesn't ship to Canada and I didn't want to go to Holt Renfrew to get one, I got mine off eBay for $91, in flawless, used-only-once condition.

    First of all, what it is is a piece of canvas that is folded in half and secured in a book shape by a little gold snap button. "Threaded" (sorry can't find another word for it) onto the "male" part of the button are seven plastic sleeves. I believe you can buy additional sleeves from LV but I don't recommend it since having too many cards in there will make it difficult to have the cards pivot out of the holder.

    I put one card each into the first four sleeves, and then I have two cards each in the fifth and sixth sleeve, and the seven sleeve holds a super thick, 2-card thickness access card to my workplace. Even with all the cards, the thickness is way under one inch. The card holder doesn't close perfectly flat, since the button kind of holds down one end but the other end is loose so the other end is kind of curved up. But once you store it in your purse/pocket, it doesn't matter. If you look at the third pic below, you'll know what I mean.

  2. Here are a few more pictures...as requested in PM...
    Kind of sucks how we can only upload 3 files max at a time now!

    This is a really really useful accessory...great for if you dont' want to lug around too many pieces of bulky accessories, or if you don't have enouch $$$ to buy a full sized LV wallet, buying this and the porte monnaie plat works super well too. I would recommend this to everyone.

    Hope this thread helps a few of you! :flowers:

  10. Thanks! I have been toying with the idea of buying one. I usually have my credit cards in my planner but its just getting too bulky for some of my bags, so I have to keep it in my messenger bag (for work) and keep my important cards in my mini pochette which I am using for coins. Long winded reply to say the the photos are very helpful!
