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

CLASSIC BI-FOLDS: 

Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Prada, and more // $25 – $600

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.

Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Parfum – Those who know me know my love and adoration for Bottega Veneta, so I was pumped to try their fragrance. This was one of our favorites, it's a luxurious scent to be worn during formal occasions, like those summer weddings that are piling up. A few sprays well blended into your skin will certainly have you at official Urban Gentleman status. 

Top Notes: Cedar and Cardamom // Middle notes Pimento and Fir // Base Notes: Leather, Labdanum, and Tonka beans
