Whether you’re shopping for yourself, or looking for the perfect gift, shopping for a new wallet can be an overwhelming, expensive and frustrating process, but it doesn’t have to be. In this guide, we’ll help you find your perfect match.
When selecting a wallet, one of the most important factors to consider is size. You want to make sure the wallet you choose will best fit your lifestyle, and that you won’t outgrow it. Not only should it fit in your pocket, but it should also have enough capacity to comfortably hold all your cash, coins, and cards.
Formal or Casual?
If you can’t see yourself switching between formal and casual wallets as needed, it’s best to match your wallet to your workplace, since that’s where you’ll spend the most time.
When looking for something formal, it is best to go with a sleek black, timeless leather wallet. Though, a brown leather wallet can also be a great choice if you enjoy the look of a classy patina. This way, your wallet ages with grace and becomes unique to you.
Zippered wallets, chain wallets, and colorful wallets tend to be more casual, but add uniqueness and personality to your wardrobe. These are available in leather, or fabric for extra durability and style.
What’s your Style?
Here are the four most common styles:
1. Chain Wallets
A chain wallet has a chain with a hook on one end so you can attach the wallet to your pants or belt, and a detachable ring on the other to keep your wallet in place. For the man who seems to always have a hole in his pocket, say good-bye to losing your wallet! With this option, the chain wallet will stay in place all day. This is especially handy when traveling.
Don't need the chain? No problem! Simply slide off the ring and throw the wallet in your bag, coat, or pocket without the added weight and noise of a chain.
This trifold chain wallet from CTM features a cool, rugged style, detachable chain, and plenty of space to store your belongings.
2. Slim Pocket Wallet / Card Holder
For someone who doesn’t carry a lot of cash or cards, a slim pocket wallet or card holder is the perfect option. This is a great option for minimalists. This wallet doesn’t take up a lot of space and typically holds 3-5 cards. Slim wallets fit comfortably in any pocket or bag, without an unsightly bulge in a coat or back pocket.
3. Bifold and Passcase Wallets
Bifold and Passcase wallets are the more traditional style of wallet. The bifold wallet folds in half and gives you more organized card space, as well as a bigger cash slot. The passcase wallet has a similar design, and includes an extra I.D. slot that flips upwards or outwards. This I.D. slot is often removable for extra convenience.

4. Zip Around Wallets
zip around wallet is similar to a bifold; however, it has a zipper that goes all the way around the wallet. This style of wallet offers extra protection for your cards and change. If you’re worried about your ID or credit card slipping out of your wallet, this is a great choice.
