The ID holder tends to be overshadowed by the wallet, but as long as you’ve got two back pockets, there’s no reason not to carry them both.

Marc Jacobs’ new Rosetta Stone-style card holder has the benefit of well-kept leather and the basic beauty of Chinese script, but it’s also priced at only $8, which makes it the most attainable thing we’ve seen from Mr. Jacobs all year.

Most importantly, though, it presents you with a choice of virtues. You can pick up holders devoted to happiness, love, health, wealth or luck…which, depending on your priorities, might present quite a conundrum. Just remember: it’s better to be lucky than smart.
