5 Handsome Leather Wallets for Spring 2019

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…)


The Most Stylish Belts for Every Occasion

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.

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.

The Best Wallets You Can Buy Right Now

We spend a lot of time thinking about how to spend our money, but we rarely think twice about how to carry it around. Like a window into your life, a wallet can say a lot about you. A worn, basic bifold bursting with receipts might imply one thing—and a slim, classic card case another. No matter what kind you prefer, a good wallet should be sharp, durable, and easy to use. But that doesn’t mean you need to empty your wallet to buy your next one—although the wallets at the end of this list are certainly tempting. Your next one should fit your lifestyle. Whether you’re climbing the face of a mountain or the corporate ladder, we’ve got the best wallets no matter your top priority: stashing your cash, protecting your information, keeping all your valuables in one place, making a statement—or all of the above.

Types of Wallets
A good wallet should fit your lifestyle, so think about what you’ll be using your wallet for: stashing your cash, protecting your information, consolidating your valuables, making a statement—or all of the above. A leather bifold is the standard go-to for a slim, back-pocket wallet. Trifolds are sometimes a bit bulkier, yet more narrow and easy to fit in your pocket. Card cases are ideal for carrying in your front pocket, and card cases work well if you want to keep everything in one place. In any case, let your day-to-day needs lead the way.

What Kind of Leather Wallet?
When looking for leather, check the tag for quality indicators. “Genuine leather” isn’t certifying that the leather is real—it’s an actual grade of leather, typically the lowest quality used for consumer sales. Top grain, the most common leather, is often buffed down to remove blemishes. And full grain is the best quality that shows the full depth and texture of the hide. If you want the best, look for this term on the inside of the wallet.

How to Care for Your Leather Wallet
If you do opt for a leather wallet, always follow the care instructions included with the piece. But if you want to give your wallet a quick refresh, remove all your cards and cash, wipe it down inside and out to remove any debris, and use a soft cloth (an old T-shirt will do the trick) to apply leather conditioner or mink oil to keep your wallet hydrated to prevent dryness or cracking—and to give it a rich color that will develop more and more over time.
