You don’t have to break the bank to buy a bi-fold wallet for men. It wouldn’t make sense to spend a fortune on a wallet and end up with nothing to fill it with. You don’t want to be the type of man that has style but no substance, do you? You shouldn’t buy a wallet with a price tag that’s too good to be true, either. Chances are that this cheap wallet will last a couple of months.
When shopping for a men’s slim minimalist wallet, go for the one that offers great value for money. Not sure where to look? In this article, you’ll find a few of our favorite slim wallets for men. The best part? They’re all within budget.
What Should You Look for in a Leather Wallet?
But first, what should you consider when shopping for a leather wallet? The answer is that it depends. What you need in a wallet is different from what someone else wants. So, when ask yourself the following to figure out what you want in a wallet:
#1 How much space do I need?
Size does matter… when it comes to wallets, anyway. If you prefer to pay with plastic, a slim money clip wallet should suffice. If you carry a lot of cash, you’ll need something with more space such as a bi-fold wallet for men. Fortunately, leather adapts to the shape of its contents, so you won’t have to worry about your wallet being bent out of shape.
#2 Do I want to fold my money?
Even if you prefer the convenience of credit, it wouldn’t hurt to have cash on hand. Now, the question is whether you want to keep your cash flat or folded. If you’re fine with folding your cash -- which is more convenient and compact -- opt for a front pocket wallet. A long leather wallet will let you carry your cash flat, but it’ll probably stick out of your pocket. Long wallets are better suited for business wear.
#3 Do I want a bifold or trifold?
Bi-fold wallets for men tend to be more popular than tri-fold wallets. They open once and come with compartments for your cards and cash. Tri-fold wallets are basically the same as bi-fold wallets, but they open twice. They also contain more compartments that allow you to sort your stuff.
