What to look for when buying a wallet for a man
Whilst you would think that buying a wallet for a man would be a relatively simple task, basically choosing the brand and the colour, well actually there is a little bit more to it!! Our Chief Buyer, Holly, produced this simple overview of what are the main wallet styles on offer at UnderU.com.
All of our men’s designer wallets are 100% leather, and you can count on quality from our brands.
The Bi-fold wallet
A classic staple for any stylish man! This wallet offers fantastic practicality in a traditional and familiar shape. Most typically these have card compartments across both sides and a large insert for cash. In recent years the size of these have reduced to become more discreet although UnderU does of course offer these in a variety of different sizes to suit all customers needs. Available in a variety of different designs and colours.
The Bi-fold coin-pocket wallet
At first glance this wallet appears very similar to the classic bi-fold wallet but this has the extra addition of a slim line coin pocket for any loose change. As standard this wallet offers card holders on one side, coin pocket on the other and a large insert extending the length of the wallet for cash. Available in black or brown options varying in sizes.
A modern alternative to the traditional bi-fold wallet. This is a more compact men’s wallet option, designed for ease of sitting in the pocket of any trouser or short, a perfect choice for a night out. Standardly these are small and neat and offer card holder compartments on one or both sides and sometime also across the top. Available in a range of different designs, also featuring bi-fold options too. And my favourite men’s wallet from this season’s collection is the Johnson Leather Card Holder from Tommy Hilfiger. A neat double sided card holder made from a soft grainy effect leather and finished with Tommy Hilfiger branding with a small metallic plaque. I like the concept of being able to smarten up your evening look with a chic and subtle alternative to the typical bi-fold wallet. Although in practicality a bi-fold wallet is most suitable for everyday use I think every man should invest in a slim line alternative – as well as being a stylish and contemporary design, card holders avoid any unsightly bulges in modern trousers such as slim chinos or skinny jeans.
