This is the price range where you'll find some brands that are specifically focused on wallets. If bulk is your main concern, consider Allett, which calls itself the originator of "the World's Thinnest Wallet." Allett's signature billfold, the Slim Leather Original Wallet (around $40), has four slots for up to 24 credit cards. Their Slim Leather Sport Wallet goes for around $30; both of these wallets are just a quarter inch thick.
You wouldn't wear the same boots in mid-winter as you would in the heart of summer, so consider scaling down your billfold for the season too. A slimmer wallet will save your shorts from sagging when there are no alternative coat pockets and improve your posture too—hours of sitting on a Costanza wallet can really screw up your spine alignment in the long run. Dot it, for your health. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/c1/cc/0b/c1cc0bc7a6db74f4b7a3cfc4281bfd06.jpg

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/originals/2b/77/29/2b7729281da37fd83f9c4f355758b72b.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.
But what I will tell you is that the bigger the wallet you have, the more you're going to stuff into it. And so I suggest that most men actually, the first thing that they should have, one thing they should try to use more of, is a billfold. And I'm sorry, you know, if Texas A&M fans [0:02:17] [Phonetic] don't get scared. Don't ran off to the SEC [0:02:19] [Phonetic] on what your already did. But know it has Texas long-horn there? No. I know a lot of great Aggies, served with many in the Marine Corps. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ac/8f/a8/ac8fa8b79d7c2c6515f9c903aa5e98d1.jpg
But now here you can see my billfold — or I'm sorry, my money clip. And what I've got here of course is my money and I got my driver's license and a credit card. And this goes in my front pocket and it won't appear right there, it stays out of the way, it doesn't have much for profile. And that's the best way to not get a mark on the back of your pants because you do not want to have the George Costanza wallet. Just do a search you're going to see the image of the George Costanza wallet. No. You do not want that. What you want is a classic wallet.
If brand names are your thing, you already likely know Burberry well. The London-based designer is best known for its scarves and other women’s accessories, but men are not left out. This wallet has eight slots, a currency compartment with a divider, two slip pockets, hand-painted edges and is made of calf leather in Italy. If you love jet-setting around the world, you can easily manage multiple currencies with ease when you have this wallet in your pocket. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/fe/7b/30/fe7b308655e38478d2d50330ae2a6f11.jpg

This is what I use whenever I'm wearing jeans denim. And I need to carry around a basic amount. You know, it's not a huge wallet. Here, you can see I carry a very minimal amount – two credit cards, my ID, a few, you know, probably about 100 dollars cash and what else do I have? Oh, I always have business cards, always have business cards in the wallet, maybe, only five. You know, these are – when you don't expect to meet somebody and you want to give them some way to stay in touch with you, unless you got an iPhone with Bump and chances are, that person doesn't, business cards are still useful. So that would be the other item you want to have. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b3/b3/be/b3b3bea56e4c03583e3397600f5b1704--my-friend-friends.jpg
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.
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. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/d8/de/83/d8de83ffe662c80221c5b51a18c9661f--dance-recital-costumes-thirty-one-gifts.jpg
