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
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/25/24/e5/2524e5aea3fa8bca011bf2b95a57dff6--face-makeup-hair-and-makeup.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.
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.
Meanwhile, where you live, work, and how you commute can make a big difference, too. Do you feel comfortable keeping your wallet in a back pocket, or do you worry about pickpockets? If you live in a city with a metro or commuter rail, do you need something that lets you have quick access to a transit card? Do you travel internationally a lot and need something that can fit foreign currency? https://i.pinimg.com/236x/f0/a8/8f/f0a88fd407ada04cbe488737afac5f66--pure-romance-games-romance-tips.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.
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/originals/0c/bb/1b/0cbb1bdb6c5cd41909972bbd0768403a.jpg
