Wallet recommendations for the extra cardy.

I need a new wallet. Caveat: I currently carry 47 paper/plastic gift cards, credit cards, etc., and need something that will hold them all. I do not want a long "mom wallet."

For the last several years I've been using Loop NYC wallets like this
-- this style was only produced for a year or two, so I have to scour Ebay for a new one when my wallet starts getting ratty. This wallet is great because there's a section for cash, four card slots on the left side (I squeeze 7 cards into the four slots) and a giant zippered section on the right that is probably made for change. I currently have 40 paper and plastic cards in there and it still zips shut. The two sides snap together to stay closed. This is basically my perfect wallet but the one I have now is made of some grody material that is peeling away from the wallet and it looks like crap, and I'm sick of having to look for one particular style when I need a new wallet.
Yesterday I was in Ross and spotted this Kipling New Money wallet
which looks like it might be a good replacement, and reviews say that it lasts a long time without looking grungy. But what else is out there? I want to carry all my cards with me at once, I prefer a compartment that zippers shut somewhere on the wallet, and I want a short wallet, none of those long checkbook-sized ones.
