Men might not be as big on accessories as women, but the few accessories they do use really show off their personalities and tastes. The wallet is a perfect example of that. It is the only accessory other than their phones – which, let’s not kid ourselves, is a tool, not an accessory per se – they literally carry around with them everywhere. So it is imperative it is a well thought out choice.
You want to opt for a wallet which not only reflects your style, but something that also fulfills its function as well. Some of the newest wallets for men on the market are minimalist in design, yet they are made out of high quality materials which can stand everyday wear.
Types of Wallets
If you’re someone who is a busy professional and is always on the go, or you’re more of a hands on type of guy or someone who works from home, there are so many wallet styles to choose from that will surely suit your needs perfectly.
This is a very popular option because of how simplistic it is. You can easily get to your credit cards and folded bills and design wise these wallets are usually very classic looking.
Usually referred to as a cardholder, minimalist wallets are very slim wallets that are usually only meant for credit cards, although they can also be used to hold small stacks of money as well.
If you want to show off your wealth all that you need is a money clip wallet and you will be at the center of the attention in no time.
These are typically very large wallets that you can store a lot of items inside, including your passport, foreign currency etc.
Specialty wallets are “special” in that they offer an extra layer of security to your money through their RFID technology. On top of that they are also usually equipped with a smartphone holder and they can also feature a more tactical design as well.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, how about we jump straight into our number 30th pick of the day:
