A wallet is a personal thing. Not only does it literally hold your identity but it speaks volumes about who you are as person—organized, messy, prepared? So when it's time to replace a billfold, it's important to know what to look for. To aid in the pursuit, we tapped Sam Huff, co-founder and creative director of the leather-accessories maker Tanner Goods, to give us six tips for picking the right wallet. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/f5/ab/a1/f5aba1fa087210801512e6bd757833b2--thirty-one-party-sharpies.jpg
Bellroy is another popular option in this range, with high-quality leather and super slim profiles. What's more, their products come in a number of bright natural dyes like blue, burnt orange, and green, in addition to more traditional black and brown. Both their High Line and Low Down billfolds (around $80 each) can fit flat bills and two to 10 cards. Their Slim Sleeve (also around $80) is the smallest of these options, but requires folding up your bills. While they don't have Saddleback's 100-year warranty, they will cover you for three years.
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/ab/8f/c1/ab8fc1449d794d9676f780e381ffda65.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/236x/36/1d/a6/361da6be2bfc92f42d0ff2144a5caa24--crosses.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/280x280_RS/a8/06/ea/a806ea80fb2720586c2e59de174e8f7e.jpg

Nowadays, I pretty much use, again, this wallet right here, my money clip. And occasionally, when we travel, I use this one. I will say these big wallets though, you've got to be careful because you're going to find that you're not used to using something this big and you may, and I've done this numerous times, I've left it on the ticket counter, walked away, probably got — and I don't know, maybe feet and I realized, “Oh my gosh.” I left the wallet, ran back. Everytime it's been that, I've been very fortunate.
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/originals/54/1d/63/541d635eba5b341a65f6076169274d11.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/474x/8c/d0/29/8cd0292975b4380f678f6ac7ba401260.jpg
