Finding a wallet that fits your style aesthetic while being practical enough to carry around every day can be difficult. The best men’s wallets have intuitive places to store your money, IDs, transit passes, and credit cards; and will age to look better over time. Therefore, it may worth spending a bit more on one to make sure it holds up for you when you need it most. You should also consider what types of features you'll use every day. Some wallets only have spaces for credit cards and cash, while others include coin pouches and RFID blocking technology to protect your data. To help you in your search for a wallet, we've scoured the internet to bring you the best of what's out there.

Read on for our picks of the best wallets for men below.

Best Overall: Nixon Cache Bifold Wallet

Nixon Cache Bifold Wallet

Nixon

What We Like
  • Origami-style construction

  • Soft, supple feel

What We Don't Like
  • Only basic brown and black colors available

For a reasonable cost, Nixon takes a single piece of leather and folds and stitches it into a origami-style wallet that’s one of a kind. Cards are stored on either side in dual slots and, somehow, a bill sleeve is also built out of the single piece of soft, supple leather. On the outside, the Cache Bifold sports a subtle Nixon stamp wordmark and comes in either black or saddle leather treatments.

Best Budget: Quicksilver Slim Pickens Bi-Fold Wallet

Quicksilver Slim Pickens Bi-Fold Wallet

Quicksilver

What We Like
  • Thin profile

  • Made from vegan leather

What We Don't Like
  • Only four card slots

This classic bi-fold delivers four card slots and a zippered pouch and a single bill fold pouch. While it offers the durability of leather, the 100 percent polyurethane construction is 100 percent vegan. The 4.5 x 3.5 inch piece is a classic shape but has a thin profile and a subtle Quicksilver logo stamped on the front. Best of all, the wallet comes in at a suggested retail price of $25 and in both black and tan colors.

Best Splurge: Filson Rugged Twill Packer Wallet

Filson Rugged Twill Packer Wallet

Filson

What We Like
  • Classic style

  • Twill and leather versions available

What We Don't Like
  • Most don’t need 12 card slots

Filson delivers rugged goods with an aesthetic that stays true to its outfitter roots and this Rugged Twill Packer Wallet shares the same function-first style as Filson’s luggage, outerwear, and apparel. Leather and twill on the outside open to reveal 12 slim card slots and a billfold pouch inside. If the twill isn’t quite your style, Filson also makes an all-leather wallet with the same rugged build.

Best for International Travel: Bellroy RFID Travel Wallet

What We Like
  • RFID shielding

  • Space for passport

  • Simple style, especially for its size

What We Don't Like
  • On the pricier side

You have a lot to keep together when you’re traveling, and your wallet should help you with that, rather than make you more stressed. This men's travel wallet delivers a ton of style and practicality, along with a keen eye to organization and construction, to truly do it all. It’s designed with RFID shielding to thwart thieves and digitally savvy pickpockets. There's also space for your passport, a hidden cash compartment, and a pen loop. And yes, it has card slots, too.

Best Card Holder: Coach New York Sport Calf Card Case

What We Like
  • Ultra slim

  • Coach quality and style

What We Don't Like
  • Difficult to fit more than the essentials

This men's cowhide leather card case stands out from the rest with its two-tone design, featuring black-trimmed leather at the edges of the seams. Coach has been known for its leather goods for more than 75 years, so despite the brand’s ubiquity, you can trust you’re getting a wallet that will last you for years to come. It features six card slots and is available in dark saddle or mahogany.

Best with Coin Pouch: Bellroy Card Pocket

Bellroy Card Pocket

Bellroy

What We Like
  • Can hold up to 15 cards

  • SIM card holder

What We Don't Like
  • Some might not find coin pouch necessary

If you’re a cold hard cash kind of person or are planning to go to other countries where coins are worth a relatively significant amount, get yourself a wallet with a coin pouch. Many American-made billfolds don’t come with one, preferring instead, apparently, that men forever weigh down their pockets with change. But this Bellroy card pocket has an internal pouch for coins and can hold up to 15 credit cards. It also has a SIM card holder built right in so you can easily swap to a local number when traveling and not lose that tiny chip in your carry-on.

Best Money Clip: Montblanc Stainless Steel Money Clip

What We Like
  • Low profile

  • High quality materials

What We Don't Like
  • Pricey

Indestructible comes to mind with this Montblanc money clip, which is known for high-quality accessories and pens. It's finished with brushed steel for an industrial but stylish look. The reliable German-made clip is forged from durable stainless steel, so it can travel and run errands with you for years to come.

Best for Not Losing Your Wallet: Herschel Supply Co. Roy Wallet + Tile

What We Like
  • Included digital tracker

  • Supple material

What We Don't Like
  • Not the slimmest option

If you’re the kind of person who can never remember whether you left your wallet by the computer, in the entryway, or in the car, this wallet is for you. It comes with an upgrade courtesy of an included Tile tracker to help you locate your wallet if you lose track of it. Simply place the tracker in your wallet and set up the Tile app on your phone. If you want to make the wallet even slimmer, it's also available without Tile.

Best Leather: Bosca Leather Bifold Wallet

Bosca Leather Bifold Wallet

Nordstrom

What We Like
  • Ages well

  • Classic style

What We Don't Like
  • Pricey

Bosca delivers a simple, elegant, well-made wallet with their classically designed bifold. It's designed to showcase the fine-grain Italian leather and features a slim profile. Plus, it has an interior pouch for currency, slip pockets, and a half-dozen card slots for your ID and bank cards. Customers say it lasts years—close to a decade and still going—and gets better-looking with every year that passes, so it’s an accessory you can buy once and use forever.

Best Waterproof: Wayfinder Men's Daybreaker Billfold Wallet

Wayfinder Men's Daybreaker Billfold Wallet

Amazon

What We Like
  • Machine washable

  • Vegan

What We Don't Like
  • Printed branding on exterior is a little obvious

A slim wallet that’s waterproof, too? This Wayfinder billfold is guaranteed to get you through the day—no matter what the weather brings—thanks to a tough TPU-coated polyester outer. The flexible outer material grips firmly in your pocket and won't scratch your phone. This wallet is also machine washable and seam-welded, so it will survive if you accidentally leave it inside your pocket when your trousers go for a spin in the wash. There's enough room for 16 credit cards, boarding passes, and your foreign monies.

Best Minimalist: The Ridge Men's Aluminum Wallet

What We Like
  • Unmatched durability for a wallet

  • Modern style

  • Slim and lightweight

What We Don't Like
  • Some might not want a metal wallet

The Ridge makes one of the most innovative minimalist wallets available. This slim aluminum wallet only weighs 2 ounces but can hold up to 12 credit cards; it features an expandable design to perfectly fit the number of cards you need and has a rear money clip to hold cash. There are also also RFID-blocking plates for extra protection. It comes in four minimalist colors including green, navy, and black.

Final Verdict

If you want a simple wallet with a unique construction and classic style, it’s hard to beat the Nixon Cache in either tan or black colorways (view at Zappos). If you prefer a money clip, take a look at the nearly indestructible Montblanc Stainless Steel Money Clip (view at Saks Fifth Avenue). And if you don’t mind parting with a bit more of your cash (before you tuck it into your new wallet) to get a long-lasting stylish wallet, consider Filson’s Rugged Twill Packer Wallet (view at Filson).

Why Trust Tripsavvy?

Justin Park is a Breckenridge, Colorado-based writer who has tested and reviewed gear from skis to snow blowers to salts for publications including TripSavvy, Popular Mechanics, SFGate.com, Men’s Health and others. His current basic leather wallet was a gift from his grandfather-in-law purchased on QVC and is more than ready for replacement but holds too much sentimental value.
