Wallet Wise

As January, the first month of the New Year, comes to a close, let’s take a look at being fiscally fit and wallet wise for 2014. Wallets have come a long way from knapsacks tied to your belt when coins first came into prominence to the wallet app that launched just two years ago. A new one is a great way to flex your style muscle and have something solid to rock the rest of your year. From work to weekend, here are a few options.

Bison Made – Made with Horween leather from Chicago, this wallet is hand sewn with a unique baseball stitch pattern that gives it a contoured sleeve, designed to perfectly fit the iPhone.

Joules – Navy leather is quite the trend for wallets in 2014. British brand Joules says it’ll get “more distinguished with every scratch and scrape.” Featuring a screen print of a rainbow trout on the interior, this small detail speaks volumes of its owner.

Miansai – Long Wallet features five slots for your cards and cash. It’s made of Italian, full grain calf skin and 24k gold plated eyelet and nylon rope with brass hardware.

Filson – A combo of cotton canvas and bridle leather makes this wallet not only durable but lighter weight and cool. A great feature is a place for your private cash stash. This wallet gets even better after years of use.

Fossil – A classic Glen plaid pattern in an updated bifold wallet. This lightweight desk-to-destination style is compact and preppy with six slots for your credit cards.

Will Leather Goods – From The Cibreo Collection and inspired by the finest restaurant in Florence, this Italian calfskin wallet may compete for the softest one #ever.

Stewart/Stand – This is a vegan wallet made of more than 85 percent post-consumer recycled stainless steel. Using RIFD technology, this is a great pairing of tech and style.
