How To Determine Your Wallet Style
Choosing the right wallet is a highly personal, surprisingly difficult task. One must take into consideration their lifestyle, wardrobe, style and preferences. In a sea of options, don’t feel overwhelmed! We’ve broken down the complicated process into four key components – size, organization, material, color – that together will help you pick the right everyday wallet for you.
The first component to decide on when looking for a new wallet is size – are you looking for something that can hold everything, or just the essentials? What do you normally wear – jeans? A suit? Do you carry your wallet in a front pocket or in the back? We’re noticing a trend towards simple, compact card holders that require you to cut down on excess. This type of streamlined design is easy to slide into an interior blazer pocket, or the back pocket on a pair of jeans on a daily basis.
Next, figure out what you carry. Decide what you need and don’t need. The library card… the gift card… are you guilty of holding onto them? We encourage you to take out the things you don’t need to carry with you all day every day and leave them at home. In terms of organization, European men are choosing to cut their wallets down to cards only because it’s more comfortable to carry and efficient to use. After all, there’s nothing less sexy than fumbling around in an over-stuffed wallet for your go-to card.
Material and quality are synonymous when it comes to wallets. Keep in mind that not all leather is created equally. If you want something that lasts, choose a high-end leather that will stand the test of time. It’s crucial to invest in a wallet made of durable, luxurious leather because a wallet endures a significant amount of use. Choose a hardy wallet, and you’ll never deal with ripped card slots and splitting spines.
Lastly, the color will determine your choice of wallet. Since you’ll be using your new wallet every day, it’s imperative that you choose something classic and neutral. A light-colored leather will gain a unique patina with time, while a darker leather will certainly age, but will maintain its color with time. Given the choice, we’d choose a dark leather wallet for a consistent color and timeless look that’s in style no matter the season.
