Help me find a wallet replacement?

I’m looking for shopping help in replacing a specific leather wallet- my current model has a weak point where the keyring loop is going to break.

I’ve been using this corter leather wallet/card holder and while the card holder part is holding up great, the leather loop for the keychain is wearing out. The cardholder part has a pocket/envelope and a little open pocket on the back that allows for easy access for cash/cards, size is perfect at 4.25”x3”x3/8”. I like the efficiency of having a minimal wallet that just holds cards & cash, connected to keys.

Any suggestions for a replacement? I like leather items that show wear per time, I’m hoping for a similarly sized item that has the envelope, open pocket and the keychain option but somehow the key part is more reinforced. On Etsy, I can find a lot of envelope style wallets, and some with a key ring, but generally the key ring loop is a little loop that will probably be the failure point again. Thanks!

Would you not unpick and replace the loop? A bodkin needle and some dental floss might give another lease of life.

Came in to say, nicely broken-in wallet. Replace the loop yourself or take to a shoemaker or saddler.

If you like your current wallet, Corter guarantees their products for life. They might be able to beef up that weak point.
