Top Three Carbon Fiber Wallet Styles: Money Clip, Front Pocket, and Bi-Fold


In our last post we discussed the 3 Main Types of Wallets for Men: Bi-Fold, Money Clip, and Front Pocket. We broke down which type is best for you depending on various factors like career, habits, and lifestyle. In this post we showcase those three essential wallet styles, but made from carbon fiber. You can also learn more about carbon fiber in general way below. 

Carbon Fiber Bi- Fold Wallet: If you qualified as a classic wallet guy, who is also very organized, then this is the one I'd choose. It mixes both leather and carbon fiber, so it should last for a very long time. 

Carbon Fiber Money Clip: So much better than a rubberband, so much classier. It's pure carbon fiber and holds up to 8 credit cards and 11 bills, but get this– it can also securely hold 1 bill. 

Carbon Fiber Front Pocket Wallet w/ Money Clip: I'm a front pocket wallet type of person myself. This particular model has the added bonus of a magnetized money clip. Not sure if it's the carbon fiber material or the fact that it's brand new (probably both), but I like that it has very tight side pocket. The tight secure pockets are perfect for those who may be shying away from this style because they don't think it's secure enough.

All of the above are just $49.95, so check out the entire Carbon Fiber Wallet Collection HERE

Which Men’s Wallet is Best For You? Classic Bi-Fold, Money Clip, or Front Pocket

Father's Day Gift Idea: Book, Cologne, Wallet, and Tools

A man and his wallet is like a woman and her purse– an everyday essential that is carried throughout all stages of life. The type of wallet a man carries will depend on his lifestyle, personality, and needs. Today we aren't going to focus on colors or textures. And we aren't going to bore you with 21 different styles. The Urban Gent will keep it simple and straightforward and help you choose one of the THREE main men's wallet options: classic bi-fold wallet, money clip, or front pocket wallet

1. The Classic Bi-fold – Everyday before going to school as a kid my dad would open his brown or black leather wallet and hand me cash for lunch. This scenario or a similar one was probably the introduction to a wallet that the majority of us had. We'd see dad pull it out his back pocket when he paid for something in the store or gave us money at home. A bi-fold wallet is classic, useful, and loved by many.  Some bi-fold wallet carriers know how to keep their wallets organized and light. Unfortunately MANY others let it get bulky, fat, and overfilled with crap.  We've all seen it– it begins to look like a miniature mountain is forming on their right or left buttock… super unflattering. If the latter describes you, do us all a favor and steer clear from the classic bi-fold wallet. 

Who Should Wear / Buy the Classic Bi-Fold Wallet?

A well-organized man that has several essential items to carry, uses cash, and does not wear super skinny tight clothing. The classic bi-fold fits your ID, credit cards, a few business cards, cash, change, and if you still carry pictures it'll hold those too.

My Canali Story + The Urban Gentleman’s Favorite Canali Looks for the Season: Suits, Polos, Pocket Squares, Denim, Loafers, Dress Shirts, Belts

CANALI: Since 1934 in Italy

Suit, shirt, tie, pocket square. Suit, shirt, tie, pocket square. Suit, shirt, tie, pocket square, belt, shoes, socks, cologne. This was how I spent my slow hours as an intern in the Men’s Furnishings department at Nordstrom. I would sit around doing these combos, honing my ability to pick out the perfect suit combo off the cuff.  My eye for a suit combo became amazingly good, I was sort of a machine, the suit-tie-pocket-square combo slayer if you will. When a man walked in my department I scanned his frame, processed his wants and needs sized him up and paired him perfectly within minutes. This particular Nordstrom was located in the wealthiest part of town so the men I dressed were CEOs, NFL players, restaurant owners, and I even dressed my first "royal" there. Given the clientele I had to prepare myself for these types, for the men who came in wanting the absolute best we had to offer. My combo was nearly always the same for these men: Canali Suit, matching dress shirt (the brand would vary), Zegna or Robert Talbott SevenFold tie, Ferragamo shoes and belt. 

The Canali Suit — I remember asking Stacey, the dashing perfectly dressed and groomed manager of the suit department, if he could teach me everything he knew about suits. It was during this training that I first learned what cuts, brands, and styles looked best on certain body types. He also taught me that Canali was the best, and they've been one of my favorites menswear brands ever since.
