Original Penguin Coloured Pocket Wallet
Making the Right Choice in Mens Wallets
Mens wallets are not in the same league of making a fashion statement as your jeans or choice of top. However, it’s the little touches and small details in an outfit which can make a real difference and complement your overall look so accessories such as Mens wallets should not be overlooked. Often it’s more about what’s inside your wallet than what it actually looks like but if yours is getting tired or you’re fed up of getting substandard wallets as gifts then it’s time to address this much neglected fashion accessory.
More than any other fashion item, Mens wallets need to be practical. After all, it’s your cash and cards that you’re carrying in your wallet and if it’s falling to pieces or if it’s too chunky to properly fit in your pocket then you could end up losing out on your hard earned money. Mens wallets should have at least one large compartment for notes, three or four slots for cards and a small zipped section for cash. If you prefer, some wallets have extras such as a space for a photo or your driving license. Generally, the simpler the better is the rule to stick to when it comes to Mens wallets as the more complicated your wallet is the more hassle it’ll be to store everything you need in it.
Style wise, Mens wallets come in many shapes and sizes and as with other accessories the choice is really down to you. For a truly classic look suited for business or formal dress choose a plain leather wallet with minimum branding such as the ones designed by Peter Werth. Street smart gents can afford to go for something a little more urban and choose Mens wallets which are a bit more distinct. Subtle touches such as an individual stripe across the front or contrasting colours on the inside are ideal choices, Fly 53 have perfected this smart, detailed look. Other alternatives are textured leather such as the pinhole detailing on the recent Duck and Cover range of Mens wallets or larger integrated logos such as those on the Firetrap collection.
No matter which of the styles of Mens wallets you choose, one look to avoid is a wallet so stuffed that it makes you look as though you have a growth on your leg when it’s in your pockets. Girls are famous for hoarding receipts and stuffing their purses full of rubbish and a man’s wallet should be sleek, slender and organised. Keep only your cards and cash in your wallet and throw anything else away. If you gather a lot of change then store this in your trouser pocket to keep your wallet thin and practical. A bulging wallet will also be a beacon to thieves so keep yours thin and keep it in your pocket.
