A good, well-made wallet is essential for any modern man. Having a great, well-made wallet can really set you apart from the crowd. The barista at the coffee shop is going to take notice if you pull a crisp $20 out of your genuine leather wallet (well, more than she would if you yanked a rumpled and stained bill from your sweatpants pocket).
But wallets aren’t just a fashion statement; after all, you’ve got to use your wallet pretty much every day, which makes selecting a new wallet a daunting task. There are so many different kinds of wallets, all unique and suitable for different people with different lifestyles.
That’s why we’ve put together this top 10 list. Consisting of top 10 wallets over all different types of styles and construction, all from different brands, this list is sure to help you get an idea of what kind of products are out there for you to buy, even if you don’t purchase a wallet directly from this list.
Read on, educate yourself, and take a look at these unique wallets.
SERMAN BRANDS- RFID Blocking Bifold Slim Genuine Leather Thin Minimalist Front Pocket Wallets for Men Money Clip
Our first wallet is made by Serman Brands, and it’s a slim, all-leather wallet featuring an ID slot and an internal money clip, as well as RFID blocking technology.
Offered in six different colors, it has a front-side cardholder for your most used card, 2 pockets on the interior, and a smart pull-strap to help you access cards you may have buried deep within the wallet; no more stumbling around to get to your rarely-used credit cards when you’re trying to pick up your morning latte.
The durable genuine leather construction is classy and slim, yet allows you to carry up to 10 cards including your cash, with little extra bulk. If you’re looking for a wallet that you can easily carry in your front or back pocket, look no further.
The RFID blocking technology is what’s most unique about this wallet, though. Although the standard chip integration, NFC, and RFID integration on more and more smartcards makes your life more convenient, it also makes your data more vulnerable. So it’s more essential than ever that you protect your data from unwanted access.
This RFID blocking technology helps protect your valuable data, and avoids identity theft problems that are especially prevalent when you’re travelling abroad. It blocks all 13.56 MHz or higher RFID signals to protect your information from unauthorized scans.
Trifold wallets have gotten a bad rap in recent days, in our opinion. While it’s true that they can sometimes be a bit bulkier compared to their monofold and bifold brethren, they certainly have utility, especially if you’re the kind of guy who likes to carry around receipts and plenty of cash. And their narrow design means that, even though they’re generally a bit bulkier than their bifold brethren, they can easily be slipped into a front pocket.
If you’re looking to stuff your wallet full of your most important information, you’re going to want a trifold. Unlike bifolds, they typically features at least 2 cash stash areas, meaning you can keep your small and large bill separate, or carry around receipts or other important documents without getting them all mixed together with the rest of your bills.
Overall, trifolds are easier to deal with when you’re trying to manage a bunch of cash, and this wallet made by Timberland proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can look damn good while doing it.
Offered in 3 color-blocked colors (or 2 solid colors, if you’re more of a minimalist), this wallet is crafted using the highest quality Timberland genuine leather, and crafted with an imported textile interior for easy and smooth card and cash access. It’s also stamped with the Timberland logo, and features a beautiful contrast-stitched design.
Including 8 card slots, and an ID-quick-view slot, this wallet is fully featured, including two cash slots which make dealing with large and small bills a breeze.
And measuring 4” high and 3” wide, it does it while still maintaining a relatively compact package. Being a trifold, this wallet won’t win any size competitions, but compared to other products in the range, it merges the utility of a trifold with classic styling that is unbeatable.
If you’re a man with a plan who loves to carry a lot of cash, this is the wallet for you.
Bifolds are classic for a reason. They’re stylish, convenient, and offer plenty of room for all the credit cards, reward cards, and gift cards you’ve piled up over the years, in addition to space for cash storage. If you think of the word “wallet” a standard bifold is probably what’s going to pop up in your head. However, some bifolds lack the storage capacity of other similar-sized trifolds, which can make switching a bit daunting at times.
But what if we told you could have all the convenience and style of a bifold wallet while getting a little extra storage when you need it?
This Alpine Swiss wallet offers just that. A beautiful genuine leather construction is slim and stylish, and hides a secret flip-out card storage unit that brings its total storage capacity to 15 cards, plus an ID slot.
The flip-out card storage compartment makes this a great wallet for someone who’s always dealt with larger, trifold wallets but may be looking for something a bit more slim and modern, without losing storage capacity.
Now, given that this isn’t a “true” trifold, this wallet offers only one cash storage slot, but it’s fully lined and can fit a surprising amount of cash, so it’s not a problem if you’re not in the habit of carrying loads of money, and don’t need it to be as tightly organized.
If you’ve been carrying a trifold for years, and are curious about trying something new without sacrificing storage capacity, this wallet is the right one for you.
If you’re like us, you probably think that money clips are really really cool. And you’re right; there’s something alluring about just pulling out a wad of tightly wrapped cash, peeling off a couple bills or a credit card, and sliding it right back into your pocket.
But let’s face it; most money clips are inconvenient at best, and disastrous at worst. Some lose their form and can’t grip your cash, some are so tight that they won’t release their iron grip, and damage your cash or credit cards, which is the last thing you want from a wallet or money clip. But this unique ROCO money clip avoids those problems with a totally unique aluminum/silicon construction.
The aluminum casing blocks RFID signals, and protects your cards while they’re held in place along with your cash by the silicone money clip. The silicon design gives you a tight hold while still allowing easy access and removal of your cash; you don’t have to worry about it gripping too hard and tearing, or struggling to access your cash while making a purchase.
It’s a great blend of durability and flexibility; you don’t have to worry about squashing your cards even if you typically carry your wallet/money clip in your back pocket, because the brushed aluminum gives them total protection.
It also comes standard with 2 band sizes, so if whether you typically carry 4 cards or over a dozen, it can expand to fit your lifestyle. The brushed aluminum design, subtle ROCO branding, and one-of-a-kind design make this a real head-turner, and it’s incredibly durable (not to mention water-resistant).
If you’re looking into getting a money clip, but are uneasy about letting your cards and cash go totally unprotected, this is the clip for you.
If you’re a minimalist looking for a stylish card carrier, and you’re not interested in leather (or just want to try something new) this Herschel Supply Co. “Charlie” Card Holder is sure to pique your interest.
While most card carriers are simple black and brown leather affairs, subtle and designed to be minimalistic, this card holder is constructed of 100% polyester, and it screams “unique”. It’s available in a huge variety of colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find a wallet that expresses your personality perfectly. If you’re sick of all the minimalism in other brands of card carriers, this is the wallet for you.
Being a minimalist card holder, It’s certainly not designed for people who are used to carrying tons of cards and cash. Its two expandable card slots can each hold up to 3 cards with ease if you’ve got cash in the cash pocket, and up to 5 if you really push it (and aren’t carrying much cash).
And, given its all polyester construction, it’s comfortable to wear in a back pocket, given that it will flex and move with you. The same polyester is also thinner than a leather card-carrier in the same class, meaning that it’s lightweight and barely noticeable when you’re carrying it.
This is probably not the wallet for you if you’re in the habit of carrying a bunch of often-used cards and cash, but if you only need about a half-dozen cards and a small cash-stash, it will cover your bases.
Magic wallets are just plain cool. Stash your cash on top of the “x” elastic material, close it up, and it’s magically strapped in, just like that. The elastic design means that your bills are safely strapped in place, and that you can open this wallet up from either side, making it as convenient as it is novel. You might have had one of these as a kid, but they’re certainly not just for kids anymore.
This magic wallet by ARCK is certainly a step-up from the flea-market offerings you might have been familiar with in your childhood. Crafted of high quality leather and featuring a cow suede interior, this wallet features two card slots in the front and two in the back, which allow it to hold up to 8 cards, which are totally accessible without even opening up the wallet.
The “magic” elastic design means that you can fit a surprising amount of cash into this bad boy as well, since it will keep expanding as you add to your stash, and the durable and flexible elastic can hold one bill just as tightly as it holds a dozen, even after prolonged use.
In addition to those features, the ARCK comes with RFID protection, which is a nice bonus feature in today’s world, where identity theft is becoming more and more commonplace.
If you’re looking for a stylish, high-quality version of a classic novelty that’s as well-built as it is fun to use, this ARCK magic wallet is the one for you.
Wait, where are you going? Come back! Seriously. Plastics. HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) also known as Tyvek. This plastic fiber is used in construction and in many postal services, and is renowned for its incredible flexibility, durability, while still being lightweight.
The Dynomighty Mighty Wallet is made of a flexible, durable, lightweight and tear-resistant material that is made by interlocking plastic fibers in a random pattern. It’s also made with a totally seam-free design, meaning it doesn’t have the weak points for tearing that so many leather and textile wallets do.
Complete with two money slots, two hugely expandable card slots, this wallet conforms to whatever you put in it, and the Tyvek construction is water-resistant, hugely durable, and conforms easily to your body and whatever you put inside your wallet. And it’s so lightweight, you’ll barely even notice that you’re carrying it.
It’s also easy to write on – feel free to use your wallet as a notepad in a pinch, or buy a plain one and customize your designs.
It’s also totally recyclable, making it a great green option compared to leather and textile wallets. And, given the price point, you can get a couple, making it easier to express your personality and find the wallet that’s perfect for you.
If you’re a world traveler, you need a passport wallet. Simple as that. Keeping your passport close to you, yet accessible is one of the most important things you can do to make your travel experience easier, and ensure that you always know where your most important travel documents are.
There’s nothing worse than having to dig through your pockets or backpack to get to your passport – the momentary panicked feeling that you might not know where it is, or may have lost it or had it stolen. You don’t have to worry about that with a passport wallet. If you know where your wallet is, you know where your passport is. Just that simple, just that easy.
Passport wallets are also useful because of their size; due to the different dimensions of bills used in different countries, you may find that you have trouble fitting them into a bifold or trifold, let alone a minimal card-holder. You can also use them to stash your airline tickets, train tickets, or other important travel documents. No more digging through your pockets on a train in Jakarta to try to find your ticket when the conductor comes by with his hole punch!
This wallet by Travelambo comes standard with a passport slot, four slots for cards, and two currency pockets, allowing you to maintain separation of your bills if you’re traveling through multiple questions, or need to stash some travel documents.
All of these currency pockets, card holders, and passport holders are crafted with top-of-the-line RFID technology, meaning that they block unwanted NFC scanners from 10 MHz to 3000 MHz.
A perfect mix of style and convenience, once you travel with a passport wallet, you’ll never want to go back.
More men than ever are choosing to carry their wallets in their front pockets. With the downsizing of wallets that’s natural in a world where we pay more with credit cards and debit cards than any other form of currency, this makes perfect sense.
Advocates cite numerous benefits. There’s a fair amount of scientific evidence that carrying a large wallet in your back pocket can have negative health effects, such as back pain, due to the natural imbalance that exists when you sit at an angle.
Advocates of front-carrying also cite increased security as a benefit, which does make sense. After all, someone just has to sneak up behind you to pluck your wallet from your back pocket. The depth and location of your front pockets make this quite a bit harder, especially given the fact that you’d naturally be facing the would-be thief.
This Front Pocket Wallet by Rogue is designed specifically with front pocket carrying in mind. While most slim front pocket wallets are designed to be rectangular, this wallet is manufactured with a curve closely mimicking the curve found in almost all men’s pants pockets, which allows it to sit securely, safely, and comfortably at the bottom of your pants pocket, while allowing plenty of space for other items.
It features a full-sized bill compartment, 3 card slots, and an ID holder complete with thumb access, and RFID technology to block unwanted scans of smart cards and IDs.
If you’ve wanted to try out front-pocket carrying, and you’re looking for a wallet that’s purpose-built for it, you’re not going to want to miss out on this Rogue wallet.
