Best men’s wallets to suit every budget
For something that gets used almost every day of a man’s life, a wallet is very rarely a considered purchase. Whereas female friends tend to pick their next purse months in advance and save accordingly, most men have either a battered wallet that was given to them as a gift years ago or will have a new one that they had to impulse purchase when the aforementioned model fell apart. Rarely is it a considered purchase and therefore rarely is it truly fit for purpose.
But what’s the use in taking a lot of time picking out the right trousers if you’re not going to take the same time and consideration over the far-more-used accessory in your back pocket?
Gentlemen, it’s time to evolve – and time to find a wallet that suits your spending needs. There are four main tribes in the wallet world and each has very specific demands for its currency carrier depending on how you like to settle the bill, plus one newcomer. Take a look at our breakdown of these tribes below and have a browse of some of the best wallets for each.
1. The cash-free convert
Whether you want to future-proof your wallet for the cashless economy or simply don’t want to ruin the line of your suit jacket, a cardholder is the obvious choice for a man who solely carries plastic.
2. The ATM junkie
The billfold, as Americans call it, is perhaps the most classic option and spot-on for a man who still likes a bank note or two with him just in case (or simply likes to pay for things in stacks of paper bills, which we can appreciate). You’ve got two main options here: a traditional billfold with a pouch for slipping notes into or a more modern interpretation with a clip in the centre. Either way, it’ll keep those fifties crisp for their next night out.
3. The change carrier
Maybe you always need coins for the car park, maybe you’re always worried you won’t have change for tipping. If you are committed to coinage and don’t want to jangle down the street with them in your pocket, you need something with a coin pocket fitted as standard. Right now, the sleekest of these are zipped on the sides to stop anything spilling out, but if you want something a little different, there’s a new generation of leather coin purses right now that can be clipped to your belt loop using a chain.
4. The traveller
If you’re the kind of man whose other car is a plane, you need a wallet that does double duty. A travel wallet is the polar opposite of a cardholder, combining a cardholder, multiple cash sleeves and a section for your boarding pass (if you’re still addicted to paper). If you want to slip it into your inside pocket, we would suggest one of the more slimline versions. If you have a bag with you (or prefer to carry it in-hand so you have all your documents at a moment’s notice), go for a zipped one so nothing accidentally tumbles out at check-in.
5. The show-off
Recent seasons have seen the wallet on a rope emerge as a standout accessory for brands from Jacquemus to Dolce & Gabbana. Wear them over your neck or attach them to a belt loop on your jeans and your wallet becomes more than just a functional means to carry your cards, but a statement to elevate your outfits. Just be careful where you wear it – it’s a great look, but you are effectively asking to be mugged.

For many men the following perennial dilemma applies: how should we carry our currency? While the traditional wallet or coin purse are both sound options, from experience the former tends to become bulky while the latter oft veers on the feminine side of things (neither of which are messages I’m wanting my currency to convey – you?). Let’s pause to understand what it is we’re hoping to accomplish. For me the goal has been consistent: to find something that fuses function with design. Ideally the result is sleek, luxurious and detail-oriented – a quality piece that is carefully thoughtful in both its construction and purpose. The solution? The unassuming efficiency of a credit card holder, which, I’ll have you know, has been constant in proving itself useful (and not only for its ability to slip into the back pocket of even the skinniest jeans).
Regarding options, there are many. Take Mulberry’s Cross-Grain Leather Cardholder for instance. Constructed from the butteriest of leathers, Mulberry’s cardholder offers discretion, craftsmanship, and room for five credit cards (or, and speaking from experience, three credit cards and solid wad of cash). Conversely Balenciaga’s Studded Leather Cardholder packs just the right punch – namely one with attitude. Five rows of square studs, each finished in the same cool blue tone as the surrounding leather, add texture (an obvious benefit here being grip). While Burberry’s Textured Leather Wallet does in-fact have a zip and therefore could be interpreted as a coin purse, I consider it a seriously secure cardholder (this being entirely justified seeing that there are in-fact three interior card slots). But the pièce de résistance must be Bottega Veneta’s Intrecciato Woven-Leather Cardholder, in all its hand-crafted Italian glory. Featuring the brand’s signature weave, Bottega Veneta’s cardholder offers unparalleled luxury and efficiency (there’s space for six card holders). I couldn’t ask for more.
