A wallet is one of the most essential accessories for a man to own, so it makes sense for you to arm yourself with one of the best, one that is of high quality and offers plenty of practicality.

Effectively, a man’s wallet is the male equivalent of a female handbag and it’s with this in mind that next time you’re out wallet shopping, you should spend some time deliberating exactly what it is you need from a money holder.

Not only do you need to factor in the size and materials of the wallet, 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 extend all the way up into the hundreds and, even thousands, dollar mark, which is usually reflective of the brand and the quality of the wallet.

If you’re looking for a wallet at the lower end of the budget spectrum, be sure to check out our round-up of the best cheap wallets.

The Best Wallet Size

Wallets can be incredibly slim or oversized. The most common styles of wallet are cardholder, bi-fold, and tri-fold. A cardholder style wallet 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 other wallet cardholders may be able to hold up to 10. You can even find cardholder wallets 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 wallet the perfect size. However, if you regularly handle and use cash, or you like a place to keep receipts, 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 for men’s wallets because it ages well, is durable & is long-lasting. But as you should know with leather by now, it can come in a variety of finishes and colours. Most men’s 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 wallet purchase then you’re going to get better leather – which means good longevity and a wallet that is going to evolve beautifully over time.
