Bill Fold, Tall Coat or Compact: How to Choose the Perfect Wallet


Though in general men’s wallets are more restrained, less ornate and more functional than purses designed for women, there is still a lot of choice out there when it comes to selecting your new cash conveyor.

From stylish leather to contemporary found materials, and compact card holders to generously proportioned bill folds, it’s easy to find an eye-catching wallet to suit your look.

Bill fold wallets

Though probably one of the most common styles of wallet gracing men’s pockets today, the bill fold wallet actually only became popular in the 1950s.

Giving the carrier plenty of space for credit cards, business cards, notes and small change, the bill fold wallet is the perfect choice for anyone who likes to keep all of their valuables in one place when they’re on the go.

Tall coat wallets

These traditional and professional looking wallets are perfect for any men who prefer to carry cards and notes instead of coins.

Ideal for keeping in the inside pocket of your bespoke office suit, tall coat wallets make great accessories and sophisticated money holders.

Credit card wallets

With most shops, bars, restaurants and even some buses now excepting payment by card, many people have stopped carrying cash, especially coins, altogether.

If you’ve made the switch to plastic only, why not invest in a stylish credit card wallet? Compact and convenient, these modern wallets will suit your busy life perfectly.

However, if you don’t want to shun cash altogether, you can find credit card sized wallets that still have space for a few emergency notes.

Compact wallets

Another design that’s perfect for your breast pocket is the compact wallet. Larger that a credit card wallet, the compact wallet folds in half neatly to fit comfortably into your pocket.

When investing in a new wallet, it’s always a good idea to buy the best quality that you can afford, especially if you’ll be using it every day.

In most cases, leather wallets are the most durable and generally still look great as they age, giving you an accessory that will keep adding style to your look for years to come.
