Take this as a sign that it’s time to officially upgrade your old, tired wallet that’s falling apart with a newbie that can fit all your cards, your cash, and even help to protect your identity.

Best Men's Wallets

It’s officially time to stop shoving cash and loose change into your front pocket (mixed with some gum wrappers) and upgrade to a new ‘adult’ wallet.  Trust me, it’s not that bad.

If you remember your dad’s old wallet that was about 15-inches thick, today there are plenty of options that are sleek, slim, and can still hold a bunch of your important cards. In fact, many options now have RFID blocking.  Not sure what that is?  Here’s a high-level explainer that the folks at Slate Magazine schooled me on.

Basically RFID blocking protection help to protect your cards (in your wallet) from electronic pickpocketing, which is also known as RFID skimming.  If so pickpocketer has one of these and is near you they can steal info from your credit cards like your personal information and even make purchases without swiping your card.  It’s pretty scary.  The point is, there are plenty of wallets available now (some even from major designers and brands) that incorporate this protection so you can carry around your cards without having to worry.

Moving on, if you’re like me, you typically never have actual cash on you anyway (what is this the 90’s?!).  If so, your best bet may be to go with a super slim and sleek card-holder or case case wallet.  You can easily toss in a couple of credit/debit cards and there’s still a space where you could place some $10’s and $20’s if needed.

On the other hand, there are some great traditional bifold wallet options in some non-traditional colors that really make a statement.  If ‘tradition’ is your thing, no worries, I have some classic black and tan leather options for you as well. So whether you’re looking for something for yourself, the classic gift for that special guy in your life, something unique for graduation, or just because, there’s something for just about every type of guy and at every budget level.
