Business Card Case Hunt

i've been looking for a business card case for the past few months as the one i'm using now has been well and truly loved and has started to look a bit too worn...

i think a business card case says a lot about a person and i always check out my clients' card cases when we meet.
for me there is nothing worst than meeting a client who produces their business card straight from their pocket, all warm and bent.

nor do i like those clients who take pride in their appearance only to be using a faux luxury brand card case. it's just wrong.

lucky for some, here in hong kong luxury brand-lovers can find any luxury brand name shop there is.
as i'm not a full-on luxury brand lover, i was on the hunt for a card case that didn't fall into this category but was still made with high craftsmanship. i wanted a card case which was unique; an original.
not an easy task finding one here in brand-heaven hong kong...

a few weeks ago i gave up on the "unique" concept and checked out stores such as prada, d&g, tods, dior homme, mulberry... the list goes on.
although i found some pretty nice card cases, i knew it wasn't what i really wanted.

so i checked out my favorite leather store; lianca, where i have been a loyal customer for the past six or so years. this is where i bought my current well-loved case and where i finally bought my new one.

i think i'm in the mood to meet some new clients now.

Hmm. Never thought leather could be an alternative for some high times. Gotta try.

yes, i think i made the right choice!
but... now i'm too scared to use it! it's made from python skin (sorry snake-y) so i know i have to take good care of it.
my last card case was also made from python skin and now is smooth and shiny!

if you wanna "rush" just go into any leather shop, it does it for me!
and you don't even have to buy anything!
