Wallet cases do tend to be kind of fugly when it comes to design. The Seidio Ledger is the best looking wallet style case I have seen, but I think it busts your budget.
Yes the Ledger is the best "wallet" case out there (I would hold off for a while, since they have an issue with the soft touch surface rubbing off). The second to that would be the Cruzerlite ones, which are within your budget I think.
