6 Wallets With Serious Street Cred
Not all wallets are created equal. Sure, the one your mom gave you for Christmas five years ago gets the job done, but if you’re going to cart it around with you every day of your life, it might be time to upgrade to one you’re actually proud to pull out. We asked Esquire U.K. style director Charlie Teasdale for his pick of wallets that will elevate your look and last the distance.
Simple, classic and to-the-point, this super-soft black leather wallet from Dunhill will never go out of style. “Dunhill’s bi-fold is as classic and quietly elegant as they come, plus it will last you a lifetime.”
Sleek modernism is Cos’ brand MO. The unusual earthy color tone elevates this Scandi high-street find, and gets bonus points for a price point that won’t hurt your bank balance. “For those that want something a little more brutal, Cos’ cardholder is all clean lines and off-kilter design.”
You’re committed to the cashless lifestyle or maybe you just like tight-fitting trousers. Either way, this cardholder in a fresh blue hue is as easy as it comes. "Good for those that like to avoid the bulge of a wallet in their suit trousers, but you might need a money clip…" advises Charlie.
A roomier size for the man on the go, this luxurious woven travel wallet fits all your airport essentials. "A marker of good taste, Bottega’s woven ‘Intrecciato’ leather gives this wallet serious texture (and style)."
Things are heating up. Here’s a wallet to get you noticed, because you don’t do anything by halves. "Because a wallet is just another tool of self-expression, after all."
A compact cardholder with a fold-over clasp to keep stray cash and business cards in place—who said practical can’t also mean stylish? "A little bit of extra security never hurts, especially when it’s delivered so stylishly," says Charlie.
