A Style Guide to Men’s Wallets

They say that money makes the world go ’round, so the vessel in which you keep your money is obviously an important part of your accessory collection.

The type of wallet you carry says a lot about who you are as a man, whether you have a classic sensibility or a flare for the dramatic.

Your wallet is the first thing you take out when you make any kind of transaction, and it makes as much of a statement about you as the items you purchase. Here is a quick guide to help you ascertain what manner of wallet fits your lifestyle.

As a man operating in business I tend to have two active wallets, one serves as a domestic solution and the other for travel.

Cash is becoming rare (and less necessary) and the need to carry anything more than a token amount for a coat check or occasional press item have passed.  When needing a few credit cards and your ID, the smaller the better.  The minimalist option below is my chosen vessel.

When travelling internationally there are always several additional needs, passport, club membership cards, multiple currencies etc. Volume demands the larger option.

There are many options when it comes to brands and price.  Given the fact that I generally lose things I tend to go for a good quality leather option (not necessarily branded).
