Choosing wallets for men is as much about design and style as it is the occasion, and indeed, the man himself. In fact, one’s accessory arsenal might contain a variety of styles and textures, each dependent on the practicality of the event. \nDesigns\nMoney ClipThe most basic organizer can be more than just a mere clip. The streamlined design of many clips also offers enough pocket space to accommodate a driver’s license and credit card. It fits neatly into the front pocket for easy access and safety, and eliminates the excess bulk of a traditional wallet.\nCard HolderThe card holder offers the same slim design style as the clip with the exception of the clip, and the exterior pockets accommodate a license, card, and cash.\nBifold WalletThe bifold is a practical choice in wallets for men. It folds in half and offers a slim design for the back pocket. Its design can be elegant of playful, but it usually accommodates a license display and more cards than the card holder, and ID space. Some have coin pockets, and bills, are displayed for easy access within the long pocket behind the card section. \nTrifold WalletAs the name suggests, this style folds into thirds, and as such, creates more bulk in back pocket. This style usually allows for up to ten cards in the individual slots, and offers a pocket behind each card section. The bill compartment is contained in the section behind the cards, and is easily organized and accessed once the wallet is opened. \nCoat WalletCoat wallets for men are designed to fit inside the coat or jacket pocket. They are longer than the billfold style, are a bifold, and typically accommodate a checkbook in addition to cards and cash. \nTravel WalletWhile not recommended for everyday wear, these wallets are the perfect go to for the traveling man. They hold all of your necessary documents, such as passport and tickets, as well as cash and cards. Closure can be either zip or snap. \nWallets for Men - Types\nRFIDRadio-frequency identification (RFID) is a process used to access personal information from cards. They “use electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects” (Wikipedia). A wallet with RFID blocking contains a netting design constructed of material intended to interfere with the waves. However, the usefulness of RFID has been questioned. Don't spend too much to get this as it's really not needed.\nMaterialWallets aren’t just about leather these days.

The full-grain leather is split, and this top-grain layer is sanded to remove imperfections. A fake grain is stamped on to the hide, and it’s color treated. Full-grain Leather – It is the top-quality product, and utilizes the full grain of the hide with all of its imperfections. This type of leather is the most durable, and ages with a rich patina. \nSiliconeOn the plus side, silicone wallets are waterproof.

The combination of materials makes this wallet a definite go to when traveling, participating in outdoor events, or just going to the corner for a cup of coffee. The Kevlar creates durability, and coupled with the carbon fiber’s ability to block unwanted data snooping, this is the perfect choice for all-around use.\nThe above is just a glimpse into the world of wallet material. There are many more upcycled options from which to choose. \nWallets for Men - Color\nWhy pigeon hole your wallet world into the same old black and brown.
