We men don’t generally fuss over the style of a wallet during its purchase. We prefer to look at the functionality of the wallet that we are trying to get.
But what if you are looking to get a branded one for your next purchase?
Surely with a billion options in the market and rip-offs of the original product, as a customer, we are often misled into buying low-quality ones.
This is where we are coming to help you out with the next purchase of your wallet.
Which type of wallet should you buy?
There are different types of wallets available in the market such as single fold, double fold, and even triple fold.
The folding helps in keeping the wallet comfortably inside, the only downside being the contents kept inside will start to have creases.
So those who carry more cash in hand should definitely look into getting the single fold long wallets.
The advantage with a double fold or triple fold is that more number of compartments can be accommodated.
So you would need to choose the product based on what you are looking to get out of it.
The basic compartments that you need to look for in a wallet are: the cash compartment, the coin compartment with a closing zipper or button lock and a few card compartments.
Having a rugged leather wallet is really a status symbol and if you really take care of it, it will last over a decade of use.
If you’re looking to get a premium leather wallet or planning to gift it to someone, then this is the right place to begin and by the end of the article you will become an expert in the wallet purchases for yourself and your fellow men.
The table below illustrates the important features of the leather wallets reviewed in this article. It might be helpful if you need to compare them side-by-side.
