As we increasingly live in a cashless society, we have the perfect excuse to trade in that pocket brick for a stylish minimalist wallet with a little more finesse. Here are some of our favourites.
It’s always been a dilemma for men, ever since the first cave dweller decided to sculpt a pocket in his bear hide tunic to keep valuables in. We have a habit of keeping every scrap of paper, every loyalty card, every scribbled note in our wallets, only to end up sitting with a lean and developing back issues.
Eventually, all that rubbish will be virtual and you’ll simply be barcoded, but until then these slim wallets will help you maintain a lean-free silhouette.
With a classic design, Dango Wallets come in two styles, Dapper and Tactical. Both are made with leather that’s pinned on an aluminium chassis and secured by a silicone belly band. Aside from holding cards and folded notes, the more functional of the two, the Tactical Wallet, comprises a lightweight multi-tool that includes a bottle opener, a glass breaker, and a rope tensioner, making it particularly useful for outdoor adventurers.
Aecraft Keychain Slim Wallet
A wallet plus a key chain holder, the Aecraft Keychain Slim Wallet has space for cards in the main pocket as well as in two external quick-access slots, while the leather key ring helps you keep track of all of life’s little essentials. Shorter than any iPhone and super lightweight, this handcrafted vegetable tanned leather wallet incorporates style, functionality, and convenience in one.
Taylor Stitch Minimalist Wallet
Sleek and wafer-thin, the Taylor Stitch Minimalist Wallet keeps things simple, with four card slots and a side entry interior for cash notes. Made with Spanish cowhide in small batches and graced with hand-painted edges, this limited-edition ultra-slim wallet, available in three colours, is ideal for essentials-only gents.
Ridge Titanium Wallet
Not really after leather? The Ridge Titanium Wallet, with its slim tin box looks, boasts high-grade titanium for better strength and durability, while also protecting against RFID-skimming devices. With an expandable compartment adjustable with screws, the wallet can hold up to 12 cards, with your choice of an elastic cash strap or a money clip for securing notes.
Made to last virtually forever, the SlimFold Wallet is the world’s thinnest, lightest and strongest. Made with durable Tyvek material, the SlimFold, available in four different models and sizes, including one that offers RFID blocking protection.
