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.
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/24/0a/a0/240aa0e3b0d2db55b9a5d58c4f7198f4.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/236x/57/bd/e0/57bde0b0639b12d85a53584a871581f9.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.

The V Series money clip is a little bulkier than some flatter clips, but it makes up for that by using a lightweight aircraft grade aluminum. The spring mechanism is made with precision-machined stainless steel and is heat tempered to add to durability. The inside of the clip is padded with Neoprene rubber grips — between these and the opening mechanism, there's virtually no chance of anything falling out of the clip.
The third card pocket sits behind the right-side quick access card slot and is perfect for less-frequently used cards like an ID, an ATM card, or a couple of backup credit cards. The cards are tucked away out of sight in this pocket, so a pull-tab helps pull them out. Behind the other quick access slot, a cash pocket has plenty of room for bills folded in half or thirds. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ab/d2/05/abd205cfb6c93d778b17d3adc95d170c.png

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.
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/originals/5b/ab/3a/5bab3aebfbc5d9eda0eaf08b3fb05bfa.jpg
