You might not know it at a glance, especially when taking into consideration just how slim it is, but this wallet is actually made from leather. That’s because it was actually created by using an innovative, proprietary lamination technique that also means this card-holding bifold has no stitching of which to speak. And it can still hold up to 8 cards at a time, which makes it all the more impressive.
While our phones are taking on more and more of our financial life, most men still need a wallet to carry their cash, credit and debit cards, driver’s license and other important IDs. With so many features and styles (bi-fold, tri-fold, genuine leather, clip, smartphone-compatible, etc.), it can be tough to zero in on the best wallet for you. Some things to take into consideration before making a decision is where you wear your wallet (back pocket vs. front pocket), price and what style is most functional for you. With that said, here are some of the best wallets for men to buy right now.
If you’re a biker or spend a lot of time aboard a motorcycle, you’re probably aware that carrying a traditional wallet is uncomfortable and risky — mostly because it could fall out of your pocket at any moment on the bumpy road. Filson’s Weatherproof leather Trucker Wallet, however, is capacious enough for all your gear and also comes with a custom brass chain to keep your wallet from slipping out on rides. This carrier is also made from water-resistant leather in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty.
The Dopp Men’s Regatta Front Pocket Wallet is a wallet that is ultra slender and beautifully made. It is crafted out of 100 percent cowhide leather that has been tanned with rich oils to give it a beautiful chocolate color. It has ornate stitching that is both durable and handsome. This wallet can hold up to three cards so that you always have your most important cards on hand. It features a slender pocket behind the card carrying slots that allow you to store away a few bills of cash. The ID window on the front makes it simple for you to identify yourself when the need arises.
– Reduces bulk in the pocket. The money clip is ultra thin and weighs next to nothing. It can easily fit into the palm of your hand with its measurements of 4.25 inches in height by 2.75 inches in width. The style of the wallet enables it to be used as a classic back pocket wallet without leaving unsightly lines and bulkiness in your pants. It can also be used in the small front pocket with ease without restricting movement. You can hold up to six of your most important cards at one time with the wallet, making it functional and spacious even though it is small. There is even a way to securely store cash thanks to the spring-loaded money clip that it includes.
There’s no rule that dictates that a wallet made from traditional materials has to be bulky and cumbersome — which is why American Bench Craft built their Caliber Clip Wallet. Super slim, yet still made from premium leather and titanium, this cash and card carrier is perfect for EDC enthusiasts who appreciate timeless styling in a modern package. And it certainly helps that this one is guaranteed for life.
Another offering from Trayvax (see the Original and Element wallets above), this is easily the most digestible design for traditional wallet aficionados. Still, it’s something you probably won’t find anywhere else, thanks to a card holder that amounts to little more than a melonite-finished, stainless steel framework paired with a nylon webbing strap to hold in up to eight cards and five bills. At about a third of an inch total thickness, but still featuring RFID protection, this bare-bones masterpiece is made for devoted minimalists. – Buy It
Of all the things you might carry with you, perhaps the most ubiquitous and immediately important is your wallet. After all, we live in a capitalist society where, metaphorically speaking, cash is king — or cards, now that so much has gone digital. So unless you’re completely off the grid and living off the land, whatever it is that hauls around your plastic or paper money is probably going to be your number one go-to piece of gear.
Most bifold wallets work well for stuffing in your back pocket, but putting a wallet in your back pocket is bad for your spine, leaves an unsightly bulge, and is just asking for pickpockets.

It’s also made from your choice of genuine bison or moose leather and can hold up to 12 cards and cash. Plus it offers RFID blocking and was made in the USA.
This wallet uses CX6 Carbon Fiber, the same carbon fiber used by Hypercar manufacturers. They’ve expertly combined it with best quality genuine Italian leather.

The Frenchie is designed to hold six (6) cards, up to thirty (30) bills and has a sweet magnetic closure. Functionality wise, this wallet beats them all. It’s what we call a “speed wallet”. It allows you access to your bills instantly without having to open up the entire wallet, dig through your cash, etc.. There’s a video explaining here.
