The Best Men’s Wallet Brands to Shop Now

Your checklist for getting out the door is crowded enough as it is without adding another item, right? Take the seemingly humble wallet. You carry yours with you on the daily. You slide it into your front jeans pocket. You throw it into your messenger bag. You reach for it without a second thought as you dash out the door wearing a new field coat. Isn’t it time your wallet got some more attention?

We’re talking the type of wallet that blends craftsmanship and design to stylishly store your essentials for years to come. Ahead are a few of our favorites.

If you seek a stylish leather wallet that merges the latest and greatest technology with a slimmed-down profile and premium materials (akin to, say, your favorite pair of dress shoes), then it’s Bellroy that you seek. The brand’s line of wallets includes card sleeves and cardholders, plus RFID-protected travel folios and coin wallets (that way, you’ll never misplace your valuables). Yes indeed, the brand easily makes some of the best men’s wallets.

Billykirk

For more than 20 years now, Chris and Kirk Bray have been crafting some of the best leather goods of any brand in the country, and they’ve been doing it with a focus on made-in-the-States craftsmanship and ridiculously high-quality materials. The brand’s full line of leather wallets, including bifold card case and standard card case options, pairs up quite nicely alongside a handsome Billykirk belt or Dopp kit, and there’s no question you’ll have your Billykirk wallet for years to come (to say the least). A rugged wallet from Billykirk is an ideal way to complement a wardrobe filled with the best clothing brands for men, we’d say.

Andar Wallet

Andar’s specialty across the board (be it phone cases, bags or wallets, naturally) focuses on handcrafted leather goods that make a difference in your everyday carry. That holds true in matters of style and performance in equal measure. By that, we mean that the brand carefully builds its wallets to last and last, from cardholders to wallets specifically designed to slide into the front pocket of your tailored trousers. Wallets are also made from materials like full-grain vintage leather, giving you a modern heirloom in your pocket.

Pioneer

Pioneer uses next-level fabrics and innovation to craft futuristic wallets that can stand up to the daily grind with ease. The Altitude Billfold is especially impressive, made with water-resistant performance fabric in a lightweight design and neutral color options. If you want a wallet to use day after day after day, one with room for unique currencies and cards, this is your best bet.

Ridge Wallet

The proof is in the pudding, or rather, the proof that Ridge Wallet knows how to make a mighty fine wallet for men is right in the name. The brand specializes in sleek, sharp, tactical wallets that seriously slim down your everyday carry. Made from tough materials like titanium, aluminum, or carbon fiber, and available in neutral colors like black or navy, the brand’s wallet options can function as a cardholder/cash strap that holds up to 12 cards, and you can also select a simple money clip option (this assuredly qualifies it as one of the best money clips, right?).

Shinola

The makers of your favorite watches and some seriously stunning everyday carry essentials are, of course, quite skilled at crafting a versatile wallet for the modern man. If it’s a trifold wallet you seek, the kind that can travel with you on jet-setting trips, you’ll find it at Shinola. And if it’s a slim bifold wallet to stow away in the pocket of your field jacket, Shinola also has you covered. Better still, Shinola wallets are made with every bit as much quality as the brand’s famed watches.

Tanner Goods

Bexar Goods is what you might call a “small-but-mighty” presence in the world of leather goods and gear, taking craftsmanship to the next level with passion and commitment. Bexar Goods wallets are particularly impressive, crafted by hand using materials like vegetable-tanned harness leather. The resulting wallet options, including a durable and rugged classic bifold, are the sort of pieces to be used, coveted, and passed down over time.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.
