So, this is a question that came in. “Antonio, do you have any suggestions in terms of wallets? I tend to wear pants a lot and in some cases, the eventual wear of the wallet is visible on the back. Are there any brands or types that have a high amount of carrying capacity but are still slim and not visible? Thank you.”All right. It's kind of a trick question and I'm going to use a little bit of an analogy here. So in 1997 I bought my first vehicle, a Chevy half-ton pickup. It's a great truck. I still have it and I still love it. And it did everything I needed as a young marine officer moving across the country. I could throw everything I own in the back and be able to travel around. I also picked up a motorcycle. That was, you know, great too because it fit in the back of the truck. And I used that because it got a much better gas mileage than the truck. And it had a much lower profile. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ef/e9/b1/efe9b1102dec1baf3e3aefd10d3961c5.jpg?b

Now, if you're traveling a lot, and you're not necessarily in a suit, let's say you're in a little bit more casual gear, you don't want to go for a wallet like that. You actually need to carry a bit more. You can go for a three-fold wallet. And most of my wallets are made by Sams, and that by the way, good company. I think, I mean, they specialized in making this. And this one right here is more casual. It's made from lighter material. I used to use this one whenever I would travel very casually, a number of years ago. And you know, not only it will fit a passport, you can put your driver's license, you can put multiple other pieces of paper, your ticket, a few dollars, various amounts of money. Okay. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/aa/37/0a/aa370a74a5a45efb4ece1842fe85d569--homemade-desserts--gifts.jpg
Bellroy is a relatively young company that released its first product in 2010. Founded by a few friends in Australia who set out to design optimal wallets in terms of size and card positioning, Bellroy has since released several different series of wallets for just about any use. You may remember seeing some of those wallets mentioned on Insider Picks before. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/f7/ba/8d/f7ba8d26c47860688d63fa4b87d6c975--thirty-one-bags-thirty-one-gifts.jpg
Whether you drop our minimalist wallets in a bathtub, drive over them with your car, or accidentally add them to your smoothie blender, Tyvek® is tough enough to keep your wallet intact. That’s right, all of our slim wallets and Tyvek bags are waterproof too! Our minimalist wallets even evolve over time and stretch to expand slightly to accommodate the wear and tear of use. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/11/50/9d/11509d70ee87eced48b87df5698b95c4--wine-and-cheese-party-diy-chalkboard-paint.jpg
The Slim Sleeve is the perfect example of the company's design mission. The wallet is built using Bellroy's "nude" approach, focusing on eliminating as much excess material as possible to keep the profile slim. There are no buckles, trimmings, snaps, buttons or fasteners. The only materials are leather and thread, with as little of each used as possible.

Nomatic got its start on Kickstarter when cousins Jon Richards and Jacob Durham designed their minimalist wallet and crowdfunded its production in 2014. The Kickstarter campaign was a runaway success, and they met their fundraising goal of $10,000 in just a few days. By the end of the 30 day pledge period, Richards and Durham had more than 6,100 backers pledging $171,315. Since then, Nomatic has evolved to offer a few different products, as well as expand production. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/96/34/37/963437d57147bb65001f25ed474d259e--cat-eyes-eye-liner.jpg

Unlike many other front-pocket or minimalist wallets, the Rogue front pocket has a full-sized compartment for cash, meaning you don't have to fold bills before putting them in. This is a big factor to consider. It's always annoying to have to unfold each bill individually and count them up at the register, especially if there's a long line behind you. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/27/dc/39/27dc391d44b7f1aa14b4ab162009909a.jpg
Leather is like any other natural material—it can be sourced and processed a number of different ways, ranging from the exquisite down to absolute shit. So, it's very important to consider where the leather comes from and how it was tanned. I wouldn't build a home from rotten timber logged from an unhealthy forest, and I definitely wouldn't purchase a wallet constructed from cheap, flimsy commodity leather. If you're spending good money on something, you should want to make sure it lasts. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3a/ba/c6/3abac609a1ea247612d5aa3ac6002628.jpg
I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/5b/03/06/5b0306fa466e8ea2c97eb3a09c4f62cf.jpg
When you flip the wallet to its other side, it has a side entry pocket with an ID window. You can also put a transit pass in here — that way, you can easily pull it out while leaving the wallet in your pocket. A slot just above and behind the ID window can hold folded cash or, if you prefer, an extra card or two. There's also a pocket at the top of the wallet which fits cash. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/ae/00/0f/ae000ff562ff0603a2839d254b2f6111--free-gifts-september.jpg

Reviewers on Amazon testify to the wallet's durability, with one person reporting back that after six years, the Saddleback Front Pocket wallet is still holding together well. Keep in mind, as several reviewers point out, that because the leather is so durable, it needs some time to break in. You might not be able to fit ten credit cards in when you first get it. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/fe/35/1e/fe351e084a63968ed9ac7bd9f1a4d896.jpg
If that sounds like what you're looking for in a wallet, consider the Saddleback Front Pocket ID Wallet. There's no folding or figuring out pockets, nor any kind of ergonomic design for your pockets. Instead, it's a single unit, a small, flat piece of leather designed to be as thin as possible to fit anywhere. With a 100-year warranty, it's built to last. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ff/74/bb/ff74bb9547af63d09392ea7b4e2781b7--kitchen-cleaners-bathroom-cleaners.jpg

"I like this case...Fits the XS well...I love the purpose of the case but hate the color black was the only option on sale and I can see why, when you touch the case it scuffs like white chalk marks, of course you can only get 2 cards n the slot and that's cool, I do like the way it fits my iphone to give it a slim sleek look and for a temporary case this is what I was looking for...This case is very functional and works well for obviating the need for a wallet in most cases" https://i.pinimg.com/originals/cf/b7/c7/cfb7c79163ca1445d8d3488cba03d017.jpg

Higher quality leather will age better, developing a patina over time, while cheaper leather will crack and peel after a few years or less. More expensive wallets will certainly note that they're constructed with full-grain leather, which is the highest quality. If the product info just says "leather," you can bet it's lower quality corrected leather. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/77/7a/a7/777aa7efc55bb6be556761fe91d71ef8.jpg
The leather wallet is handsome and sturdy. Its minimalist style is sleek, only a displaying a subtle logo at the on the front right corner. The clean design, which comes in black and dark brown, makes it easy to coordinate the wallet with a number of different accessories and outfits.  As for compartments, it offers an ample amount of room, including an interior currency pocket, ID windows, slip pockets, and three card slots. Many customers have praised its soft, pebbled texture as well as its build quality.  
If you want to carry a lot of stuff, we’re looking at you George Costanza, the Ingram Extra Capacity Trifold from Fossil is a great option. The leather is smooth to the touch and the wallet expands to hold everything but the kitchen sink. It has eight credit card slots, four slip pockets, one ID Window and plenty of room for whatever cash and frequent customer cards you need to carry. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/83/84/d2/8384d2104c47249147497afe050daa4c--lollipop-sticks-lollipop-candy.jpg

If someone has a giant attic, chances are they're going to fill it full of junk. Same goes for simple things, like a wallet. Sure, we all have a slew of cards we think are essential, but are they really? Try this: Lay them all out on a table and identify the few you actually use on a daily basis—now those are what should be carried in your wallet. The others can make a cameo appearance when needed. https://i.pinimg.com/474x/f3/47/86/f34786ac1f05cff58250a60abcfbcea6--keller-idol.jpg
Wallets are no exception. I think I've tried out more wallets than I can count. To be fair, it's hard to find a "perfect" wallet for every situation. In the winter when you're wearing a heavy coat, you can keep a hefty wallet in a breast pocket, while in the summer you need something that can fit in the pocket of a pair of jeans or shorts. If you're going to a wedding or meeting, you might want something that keeps a slim profile in a suit, while you might also need something that can fit cash for tipping at a bar or valet. And of course, you want to avoid being the next George Costanza. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3b/8e/6d/3b8e6d908f767876844dd8973f8b9404.jpg

While the top review on Amazon suggests that there are quality issues, several members of the Insider Picks team, including myself, have been using the Bellroy Slim Sleeve as a go-to wallet for months or years without a problem. That, combined with the fact that the wallet has 4.5 stars over all and overwhelmingly positive reviews, suggests that the one user's experience may have been an anomaly. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/13/cb/5e/13cb5ee1f6c22c09da7a4dcbd3486665--initials-inc-sales.jpg

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. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b3/ef/11/b3ef11d2d7ea0e6f7cd4d869c0405108--my-thirty-one-thirty-one-gifts.jpg


M-Clip says you can hold 6-8 cards and at least 8-10 bills, which should be plenty for any need. According to several people who use the clip, even if you regularly stuff a lot into it, the clip doesn't lose tension later when you're carrying less. Reviewers also swear by M-Clip's customer service— if you're unhappy with your clip for any reason, M-Clip is happy to work with you to fix the problem. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/26/98/40/269840d9b090dc54d29b718b0ce831e3--scratch-off-cards-scratch-off-tickets.jpg
People don’t want to carry a wallet or purse. Rush in line, hurry up! I’ve left my whole wallet on the counter, I didn’t realize it. People put their card and ID’s in your phone, if you lose that, you’re toast! Having to dig around your purse sucks. Music and sporting events: You don’t want to carry stuff- You're always getting searched by security. People are looking to simplify their lives. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/8a/60/5b/8a605bf5895d814e68b041ed1e8a702c.jpg
