The initial purpose of a wallet was to hold your personal items, such as cash, ID, photos, credit cards, and so on. They are usually made of leather and efficiently sized to fit into your pocket, but, as you’ll see, this is not necessarily a followed pattern. I said “initial purpose” because nowadays a man’s wallet is mostly regarded as a business card, representing his preferences, status, and individuality. The modern bi-fold wallet features multiple card slots, a design that has become standardized at the beginning of the 1950’s when credit cards were first introduced. Creative innovations in the business introduced the velcro closure wallet sometime around the 1970s. Pocket-sized wallets are still extremely popular ’till this day. So, if you’re looking to make a statement with the simplest item such as a wallet, here’s a list of ten cool wallets for men.
10. Batman Wallet
This creative wallet brings out the Bruce Wayne within you. The product is sheathed in a matte black rubberized coating that looks and feels amazing. It has a magnetized grip to keep your money safe. A drawback is that it cannot hold credit cards, but let’s be honest, this is way too cool for that to matter.
9. Bacon Wallet
Are you a gourmand person that wants to make a statement? Then this is probably what you’ve been looking for. It will not only turn the heads of your colleagues, but may also attract the attention of a quadruped companion, so be careful and don’t let it near dogs, cats, or other meat-eating animals.
