I think it depends of your personality; I'm more classical so I vote for #1 ( actually mine is in chocolate brown)[emoji16]. Speaking about quality I can tell that I've been wearing mine everyday since bought it 2 years ago and it still is like new. But whatever you decide all are such a great pieces!!

The Gucci leather is classic and practically indestructible. The Bengal is trendy and so are the CL's. They also remind me of Rockstuds.

1 or 2 based on style. Not sure I would buy a louboutin wallet.

My husband gifted me a long blue Celine wallet 2 years ago. It's still going strong and is a snap closure. I've heard great things about canvas in general-I might lean more towards a Louis Vuitton canvas wallet but Gucci has been tempting more these days.

Otherwise with Leather I'm not sure where I'd go. I like the Celine but I'd want a different style-this is when my Celine wallet kicks it which I have no idea when that will be since the leather is really really thick and the zip inside is still smooth. I'm quite happy with it.

I would never do a zip around wallet only because it annoys me to have to do a full zip. I like the flap/snap I have

Agreed that the studs will be a PITA. The first one is classic. The second one is my secret fave though...I LOVE animal things lol.

I've never really been into the CL handbags/wallets to be honest. They just don't do it for me, and I think their designs are simply put, not very traditional or aesthetically pleasing. Their shoes, on the other hand, are a work of art.

I'm biased because I have a few Gucci goods and love them.

tks..Kellybuzzbuzz...wow the Celine really beauty and do their job! i see, you prefer the canvas(and snap) raher than the leather..Unfortunately i m kind of OCD (lol)..kind of worrying that receipts/bills might flying when on/off snapping so, zipper is my choice for a top gard..lololol
