Best Wallets For Men To Carry Your Cards & Cash In Style

Settle the tab in style.

A man’s wallet can reveal a lot about the owner. The size, the colour, even what’s kept inside. Essentially, it’s the male equivalent of the female handbag. It’s with this in mind that next time you’re out wallet hunting, you should spend some time deliberating exactly what it is you need from a money holder.

Not only do you need to factor in size and materials, which we’ll delve into in a bit, but as with any menswear item, you need to think about your budget. Wallets can range from incredibly affordable, somewhere around the $30-$50 mark, and extends way up into the hundreds and, even thousands, dollar mark, which is usually reflective of the brand, and the quality of the wallet.

The Perfect Wallet Size

Wallets can be incredibly slim or oversized. The most common styles are cardholder, bi-fold, and tri-fold. A cardholder is exactly what it suggests: a holder for cards. Where they differ is how many cards they can carry; some will have space for just two or three while others may be able to hold up to 10. You can even find cardholders with space for some notes, offering the best of both worlds.

Bi-fold and tri-fold wallets will, naturally, have space for cards too (some cardholders may come in a bi-fold design too) but will usually offer more space for notes and coins.

Realistically speaking, most of us are much more likely to pay for everything by card, or even with our phones these days, making the cardholder style the perfect wallet size. However, if you regularly handle and use cash, or you like a place to keep receipts in your wallet, you’re definitely going to have to choose a bi-fold or tri-fold wallet.

Why Wallet Construction Matters

Leather is the most common material used in wallets because it ages well and is durable & long-lasting. But as you should know with leather by now, it can come in a variety of finishes and colours. Most wallets are crafted from full-grain leather with either a pebbled finish or an extremely smooth finish, but the variant you choose is entirely dependent on your personal preference.

And as with any material, there are different levels of quality. In general, if you put a few extra dollars into your purchase then you’re going to get better leather – which means good longevity and a wallet that is going to evolve beautifully over time.
