The 30 Best Wallets to Stash Your Essentials
wallet for men


Your wallet isn’t just for storing cards and cash. It’s a statement piece—an accessory that speaks to a man’s character and style. We’re talking about an everyday carry essential that your boss, Tinder date or Starbucks barista will recognize and respect on sight.

Upgrading to a new wallet seems easier said than done, especially for dudes with attachment issues. But, seriously, did you really think the torn and tattered billfold that dad bought you years ago would hold out forever? Don’t answer that. Instead, retire that sucker and invest in something more mature and professional.

Whether you need a wallet with serious organization or just a place to keep a few cards, there’s something out there for every guy. However, you need to know which ones best suit your lifestyle. To help you with that, we’ve listed the most popular wallet types and what makes each so different.
