What wallet do you use?

Title says it all.

Of course, this isn't a watch, pair of shoes, or tie; likely nobody will recognize or care what wallet you have, but it's something you touch every day and should last a while, so it's nice to have a nice one.

What brand? How long have you had it? Is it bifold? Trifold?

And if you don't have a wallet, what do you use instead?

Black leather fossil wallet, trifold, double stitched. I've used it daily for 11 years. It even went through the washer a couple of times. Still in great shape.

No wallet. Rubber band around a few credit/ATM cards, ID, my frequent shopper's card, and a few bills stacked and folded into thirds. No unsightly bulge in my pants other than the one God gave me, and the friction from the rubber band guarantees it will never slip out on its own.

Montblanc has pretty nice looking wallets that are made with high quality leather. The price is not as absurd as other "luxury" brands like Gucci or Louis Vuitton and still lasts a long time. Invest in a good one and you won't be buying a wallet for some years to come.

A wallet my grandfather bought in communist Poland in the 1970's. I found it in a drawer around the house, untouched still in plastic wrap and I've been using it for the past two years or so. Absolutely amazing quality, dark brown leather. My grandmother told me he paid maybe the equivalent of 20 cents today in Deutsche Marks back then for it and that he must've forgotten about it

Before that I used to just put everything in my pocket without a wallet and then my debit card and student card (which were both white) pretty much turned blue from my jeans lol

yesss I'm a fan of secrid too but I also just try and use apple pay whenever I can

Jul 22, 2017

Apple pay isn't very big in my country, just wireless paying with your debit card(and some banks have NFC apps here, but they are not widely accepted). If mobile payment systems would be larger here I'd dump every card I have immediatly lol.

I use secrid as well. Love it.

I bought a small coach wallet with a money clip on the back like 7 years. It's still going strong, it may be on its last leg but it's small and has lasted forever. Best 80$ spent ever.

I had a small brown buffalo leather coach bi fold for 7 years and i loved it. put through the wash a few times no issue. GF put it through the drier and ruined it.

Everyday Wallet:
Brown leather, bifold, single stitch, used it for about 5 years. It held up pretty well.
Fancy Wallet:
Black cape buffalo (got to mess with PETA and vegans), trifold, double stitched, don't know the brand. Had it for a while, haven't really used it too much. It's kind of hard to justify using this wallet just for the daily commute.

Big fan of Mont Blanc. Top class, but not ignorant (like a gucci) in a business setting. Like you said, its something you touch every day. Go big or go home. $200 on amazon for a wallet that will last you a decade and even get you laid in the right occasions.

Common Projects bifold wallet; the brand is my guilty pleasure

Nobody likes a Costanza wallet. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003TFVRP0/ref=o... Sailcloth, under $20, and utterly respectable. With three RFID cards, four credit cards, and the basic DL/Ins/etc. set plus $200 in twenties it is under 1/3" thick. "He who travels happily must travel light." -Antoine de Saint-Exupery. I may not get compliments, but I do occasionally see someone else buy one after a meeting with me.

NEO Wallet is a lightweight wallet developed and maintained by the NEO community. Though being a web wallet, it takes care of your NEO funds as nothing is ever sent to NEO Wallet's servers. It allows you to create a wallet back up so that you control your private keys of your NEO funds.

I use a vintage money clip that my grandfather got when he worked for a steel company decades ago. It has their logo on it and kind of reminds me of my family history and where hard work can get you. Nothing special but just something personal that gets me going.

I bought a Gucci GG Supreme wallet (bi-fold), thinking it'd be nice to flex a luxury wallet, when really it's sort of embarrassing to pull out when with friends/ co-workers. If I could do it over, I would just grab a nice, plain leather wallet and call it a day.

Silicone credit card holder that sticks to the back of my phone. Slip a 50 / 100 in my phone case. That's it folks. No more having to worry about losing your wallet or having that annoying bulge in your pocket.

I charge literally everything on my credit card so there is very little reason for me to carry cash other than a few bucks just in case

Have a beatup cardholder for everyday use. For special occasions I use a YSL Cardholder, slim and minimalistic.

Some time ago on a trip to Rome, I met with a wallet in the name of iclip. After the general search, I found this bag on Amazon and bought it immediately. Loved it from moment one! It keeps everything neat and protected, prevents me from overstuffing my wallet with needless receipts, etc., and fits comfortably in my front pocket. It is a fantastic product. The best thing about the I-clip is the size. I used to love brand wallets before and I usually found the best brands on Digistyle. But now I HATE big fat wallets. This is slim, holds several credit cards, license, insurance cards, business cards and has the money clip. I put it in my back pocket, but it is a great front pocket wallet also.

I got a bifold wallet from Saturday's NYC a few years ago, it looks nicer than it did new, and I've gotten a handful of compliments on it as well. It is reasonably priced compared to other fashion brands as well ($140).

I got a card-holder at J. Crew for like $10. I hate bulky wallets, and I don't really carry cash anymore (if I do, my cardholder has a little strap you can tuck it in) wallet

Feb 1, 2019

Looks like it's been a while on this thread but maybe some others looking for content... Wallet is one thing you can actually go very high end on without spending too much relative to other accessories (such as a watch). These days I only carry what's called a 'card case' has a few slots for credit cards and a place for cash in the middle. Keeps you disciplined and you don't end up with a fatass wallet, carrying a ton of things you don't really need daily. Also it means you don't end up sitting on your wallet and ruining its shape/quality when you're out, since these fit in the front pocket.

In terms of brands, look for something that doesn't scream $$$$, like Gucci as somebody here mentioned. I have a Bottega Veneta card case, has no branding anywhere and only people who know will know, to all else it's just a black slim wallet. Hope it helps.

Slimmest wallet possible always. Take a look at Belroy and Roik. I am really happy with both. For me the most important is that it doesn't look like I have an "Alcatel One Touch Easy" in my pocket. And, of course, put your wallet in your jacket inner pocket, whenever possible.

I carry a leather tote which i got from LeatherJacketShop a year ago. It has enough room for all my day to day essentials. It also has a laptop pocket which is really convenient because i carry my MacBook to work everyday. All and all, it is a complete package made from pure leather and is even after a year of continuous use, it is as good as new!
