I think the thing with metal cards is, it’s no different from someone choosing to spend their money on expensive trainers, jewellery, etc. Some people will argue its a waste of money/vulgar/ostentatious while others will like/enjoy it. It’s just about giving people the option as to whether or not they value them enough to spend their money on them, and if they do that’s fine, if they don’t that’s fine also. There’s no right answer.
