Every self-respecting man needs a wallet. If yours is threadbare, dirty from years of use, or—dare we say—held together by Velcro, you need an upgrade. (Pronto if you’re guilty of the Velcro…)
Of course finding the right wallet isn’t always easy. Some guys are minimalists, while others need serious storage solutions that minimize bulk. There’s a bevy of different materials, styles, and durabilities out there, so we’ve narrowed down a selection for every man. Here are our favorites of spring 2019.
1. John Varvatos Star USA Bushwick Billfold
You can’t go wrong with a classic billfold wallet. This one’s made from cow leather, so it’ll weather over time—developing scuffs, wrinkles, and a rich patina. There are four card slots, so you’ll have just enough storage for your necessities.

2. Bally Teisel Bovine Leather Coin Wallet
Fancy a wallet with a little more sex appeal? This option is sporty but still refined, crafted from scratch-resistant cow leather. It doesn’t skimp on functionality either: There are slits for banknotes and cards, as well as a popper pocket for change.

3. Smythson Panama 6 Card Wallet
Cross-grain calf leather adds subtle intrigue to your everyday wallet. This is ideal for men who like to keep all their cards handy; there are six card slots and two side pockets.

4. Dango M1 Maverick Bifold
This unique vertical wallet is designed for those who play hard. It combines durable, corrosion-resistant aluminum with top-grain leather, and features an RFID-blocking card cavity. In all, it can store 14-16 cards, plus cash.

5. Taylor Stitch Minimalist Billfold
Navy and tan: It’s a classic color pairing that never fails to look sharp. True to its name, the Minimalist Billfold is a slim wallet with hidden card slots to minimize bulk and stretch over time. We love that the wallet is produced via small-batch manufacturing with exclusive materials (like 100% full-grain Spanish cowhide and dead stock fabrics). But you know what that means: You’ve got to get it while you can.
